    World War II from Academy Award® winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in

    (Daily Variety) that was nominated for three British Independent Film Awards.

    * * * * In March 1943, the best minds in England have gathered to face their worst nightmare
    - the Nazis have changed the code key for the infamous Enigma machine. *Since they're
    unable to monitor the Nazi U-boat's communication, the clock is ticking for an allied convoy
    crossing the Atlantic with 10,000 passengers and vital supplies. *Allied command looks for
    help from Tom Jericho (Dougray Scott - Mission: Impossible II, Ever After), a brilliant
    mathematician and code-breaker. *Unknown to his colleagues, Jericho has another equally
    baffling enigma of his own to unravel - the sudden disappearance of his lover Claire (Saffron
    Burrows - Timecode, Deep Blue Sea). *To get to the bottom of both mysteries, Jericho enlists
    the help of Hester (Kate Winslet), Claire's roommate and co-worker. *Together they keep one
    step ahead of ruthless secret services agent Wigram (Jeremy Northam - Gosford Park, The
    Net) to reach a conclusion that uncovers both international and personal betrayals.

    Here's hoping Enigma has a new transfer to replace the previous abomination [​IMG] , and also retails the 2.35:1 AR (all international versions of the DVD were cropped to 16:9 for some reason)

    Well said. I hope CTHV is paying attention. I'm going to wait for the reviews for Enigma SE; with a decent PQ and proper AR it's a must buy. Otherwise I'll wait for Superbit or whatever other silly-named version CTHV decide to release after 3 months.

    I am not sure that Enigma was really all that great, so I will not go looking for the new SE version. But, I would agree that something needs to be done to the DVD. It is probably the worst DVD I have ever seen in terms of PQ.

    I think it is a new transfer - on the back of the dvd it says in BIG letters - 'remastered in high definition'

    I expect they did a new transfer in readiness of HD-DVD and downconverted it for DVD.

    Can't wait for this one - one of the biggest Brit movies of the last couple of years. A top movie in my opinion with a pleasing John Barry score too!

    Does anyone know if "Enough" is going to have a new transfer as well? It know it's getting a ton of goodies that weren't on the first release, but what about the Trasnfer? Oooh, I wonder if it'll have DTS.
