SRP $26.95 1.85:1(16:9) DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 COLUMBIA TRISTAR
 
COLUMBIA TRISTAR has released a special edition dvd of "WINGED MIGRATION".  
Watching this film demonstrates just how far things nature documentaries 
have come since my childhood.  While I always loved nature films, more often than not, they were typically loaded with filler, mediocre narration,
and stock footage. "WINGED MIGRATION" is stunning from
beginning to end.

The filmmakers have ingeniously crafted cinematic techniques and
innovations to literally travel alongside a variety of migrating birds as they
migrate to survive!  It's never dull, often spectacular, and moving.

COLUMBIA TRISTAR has preserved the films 1.85:1 aspect ratio, with
16:9 enhancement.  The result is stunning! This is a demonstration quality 
transfer!  Colors are rich and vibrant in every single scene, and the
detail is flawless!  It's one of the best looking transfers of the past
year! 
Contrast is close to perfect, with great detail in even the darkest
scenes.

COLUMBIA TRISTAR has presented a DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 mix.  Even here,
the transfer is spectacular!  There are numerous surround and discrete
effects, fully immersing the viewer into the film's environment.  The film's
score is also well complimented.

COLUMBIA TRISTAR has provided numerous extras for this release!
A commentary with the film's director, Jacques Perrin offers terrific 
insight as to how the film's incredible cinematography was achieved.

A lengthy featurette provides even more detail about the film's
technical accomplishments, with plenty of "behind-the-scenes" footage.

Even the music is given ample coverage, with a worthwhile featurette
devoted to it.

By far, the best featurette, "Further Thoughts" examines how specific scenes were accomplished, and it's highly recommended!

There are two trailers as well!
