Other features

The Borrowers is a good DVD with excellent sound. Despite many commentators on the DVD newsgroup, the DVD accurately reflects the way the film was intended to look - sort of an odd, golden, sepia tone to everything. On my Sony 7000, there are no problems with the disk-no artifacting, etc. - that make up a poor transfer.

In fact, this is not at all a poor transfer with an exceptional, clear image and a first rate DD 5.1 soundtrack. The DVD includes a brief "making of" documentary and the ubiquitous trailer.
