Derek Jarman's striking and inventive screen adaptation of Shakespeare's allegorical fantasy gets an adequate presentation on this DVD release. The Tempest has been transferred to disc in the full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1 and the audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo. The dialogue is in English with no multiple-language options. Bonus materials featured on this edition include the copy from the film's original press book and three short subjects directed by Jarman: A Journey to Avebury, Garden of Luxor, and Art of Mirrors.
