Read Amber Wilkinson's film review of Simpatico

This is a competently packaged DVD that holds little of interest, other than the film itself. The print is sharp, with good colour saturation and the digital sound clear. There is no visible grain or scratching, but you wouldn't expect such blemishes in such a recent film.

It is a shame to see that there are no subtitles. It can't cost much to include them and they make DVDs so much more accessible to a wider audience.

When it comes to extras, the trailer is just that, the scene selection is static and the featurette somewhat pointless. Lasting only around ten minutes, it is more of a love-in between the leading actors and director than anything else, intercut with scenes from the movie and one or two pieces of footage from the shoot. It offers little insight and seems merely to be included because they had it kicking around. All in all a decent print, released by a company unwilling to go that extra mile in terms of additional features.
