Madagascar Skin DVD Review

Hop To

    SRP: £12.99

    Picture

    It may have had a theatrical release but this film has 'television' stamped all over it, both in budget, feel, and compositions. It's a decent transfer nonetheless. Black levels and contrast are good, and the picture is nice and bright when it should be, with natural skin tones. The picture is slightly soft in a few scenes but there are no real flaws or damage in the print and no digital nastiness like artefacts. It's a good low budget film transfer.

    Sound

    It's a Dolby 2.0 mix that does the job adequately. There's no real separation or effects, and there's no need for it. With practically only two characters in the film and no action sequences, there's a lot of talking and a lot of silences. The film's music is fine, and the dialogue is clear but there's no real panache.

    Extras

    A few text pages with sparse biographical details and a futile stills gallery with shots from the film. Rubbish effort.

    Verdict

    A curious mid-nineties British flick that's not quite an art film yet not mainstream either. It's nicely shot but rather dull.
