VIDEO/AUDIO: NIRVANA is presented in 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen. Colors are nice and vibrant. Blacks are OK, but sometimes
they lack good detail. Image sharpness and detail is great, but the transfer has a slight presence of grain.
You can hear the movie in English 5.1 Dolby Digital with the option of English, French, or Spanish subtitles. Dialogue
can be heard OK, but the other sound elements are just average at times while the music benefits the most. Music
and sound effects are loud, but they lack bass. Sadly the original Italian language track isn't on this DVD (or
even a French language track) since NIRVANA is a French-Italian co-production shot in Italy back in 1997. The English dubbing
isn't the best because you can tell the movie has been dubbed at times (even when Christopher Lambert has dubbed his lines
into English). A little adaptation on the script to make the words synch up to match up more with the lip movements better.
EXTRAS: None except for a 25 Years of Miramax trailer.
DVD Cover Art: It is OK, but I like the cover art they show in the insert that is included in the DVD of THE I INSIDE better.
FINAL ANALYSIS: NIRVANA is a sci-fi movie that may turn some people off. It is a movie that requires a little patience
at times, but it is worth a rental for William Gibson and Christopher Lambert fans. Definitely a rent for fans of intelligent
sci-fi and cyberpunk. Hopefully, a better edition of the DVD will make it to the USA one of these days.
