English: Dolby Digital 5.1Other features
The 1.85:1 widescreen transfer does justice to the film's beautiful cinematography; the images are clear and the colors rich. English audio is a well-mixed, realistic Dolby Digital 5.1. Besides the superior picture and sound, there's an excellent commentary by the movie's creators; a short film called "Dr. Hugo" (which served as the basis for Eve's Bayou); behind-the-scenes material, production notes and the theatrical trailer.
