Notes on my reviews: I do not offer plot summaries in most cases, as these can be found on a million other sites, but rather focus instead on what people who shop for overseas Blu-rays want to know: the image and sound presentation, default playback settings, subtitles, audio choices, etc. My equipment: Panasonic TC-P55UT50 Plasma monitor (3-D capable); Panasonic DMP-BDT220 3-D Blu-ray player; LG BD-360 all-region Blu-ray player; Denon AVE-E200 5.1 Surround receiver. All aspect ratios are physically measured on the Panasonic screen, which has been set to eliminate overscan.
MIGHTY APHRODITE (1995)
LABEL: Smile Entertainment
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Sweden
REGION: All-Region, confirmed
ASPECT RATIO: 1.78:1
SOUND: Supposedly Dolby Digital Stereo, but this is a Woody Allen disc, so....2.0 mono.
SUBTITLES: Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish
BONUS MATERIAL: Uh-uh.
If you’ve not seen this film yet (or, even if you have), you’re in for a treat. Mira Sorvino won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for this, and very deservedly so. She is beyond hilarious, yet manages to create a fully-dimensional and sympathetic character.
The disc looks and sounds excellent, Color including flesh tones are true. There is what I would say is an accurate retention of grain, and the image is film-like. Contrast, black levels and shadow detail very acceptable. I see no DNR or edge enhancement.
When first loaded, you have a choice of subtitles, but not the option to have none. You have to remove the subtitles using your remote. Movie begins immediately after that.
The disc is housed in a somewhat thicker Blu-ray case than those provided us in the U.S.
