    Ang Lee`s first worth mentioning movie. Yes - it`s that good!
    This is a beautifully made and very nicely performed piece.
    Lee`s attention to detail is very much noticed and the movie seems perfectly polished, in that manner.
    The video transfer is excellent. The colors are beautifully saturated and no compression signs can be spotted. One simply cannot ignore the breathtaking landscapes in the movie. All the outdoor scenes simply scream "nature".
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are used occasionally, but the real beauty here is the music, which is absolutely stunning.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include 4 behind the scenes featurettes.
    Bottom line - a wonderful movie indeed, and a very decent disc to match. Highly recommended.
