    Ive just watched Sex & Lucia which was worth watching
    for many reasons, but the dvd quality was really bad.

    i reached for my Avia disk as soon as the film finished
    to see if my setup had somehow changed (of course it was fine)

    I Then went to the net to read reviews.

    It seems from the reviews that they feel the video is
    supposed to look different and this was all normal as
    the director used special cameras etc etc & was experimenting
    with film bla bla bla.

    Ummmmm - i think what a load of traddle

    Someone somewhere messed up this transfer, im sure of it.

    The white levels & contrast where way off
    it looked naff. As for colour it seemed all washed out.
    The dvd case shows images with nice colours, these u
    dont get in the film.

    I wonder if any users watched the cinema release and have
    since seen the dvd release. id like to here there comments.

    Also any users that have seen the dvd. what did u think.

    hi there, I thought the Sex and Lucia transfer was excellant - in fact I opened up a thread on it a while back. The director used a new form of digital camera with it, which imho made the transfer excellant.

    I loved the fact that the contrast was over exposed, but if you watch it - its only over exposed for certain parts of the screen...much like Minority Report I thought.

    oh, and this film has loads of sex with nice visuals.....what more could you want? :laugh:
