The widescreen DVD version is much better than the old VHS transfer in displaying the sumptuous visual style of this special film. There is wonderful color rendition but some visible DVD movement artifacts and the soundtrack seems to have been recorded with automatic level control. Still, it's great to have a DVD of this one. Originally marketed in the US as a genre horror movie, Neil Jordan's ''The Company of Wolves'' is anything but commonplace. Based on stories in ''The Bloody Chamber'' by Angela Carter, this film is a flood of imaginative and sensual images depicting the emerging adolescence of a thirteen year old girl. She dreams herself as a young villager in a fairy tale world built around an old well in the woods. The village is besieged by wolf attacks and at becomes apparent that these wolves turn into humans and vice versa. Ultimately, the girl herself (or at least her childhood ¿ you decide) becomes the victim of her own untamed wolf nature. Only marred by one gratuitous gore scene of a man peeling bloody skin from his face while turning into a wolf (using latex and prosthetic work popular at the time). Beautiful and rich music score by George Fenton.
