Sirens is a very off-beat comedy / drama about a clergyman sent to a painter’s house and how he and his wife react to their surroundings. Hugh Grant (Reverend Anthony Campion) is sent tot he home of Norman Lindsay (Sam Neill) to try and get him to withdraw some of his controversial paintings from an art exhibit. When they get there, they encounter the three ladies who pose for the artist who spend most of their time sitting around talking about sex, art and society. Over time The Reverend’s wife (Tara Fitzgerald) get drawn into the seductive side of life.
The image is presented in 1.85:1 widescreen format is overall is very detailed. However, there are a few flaws that can be seen throughout the movie. Sometimes there is over shadowing and some artifacts that appear here and there. Beyond that, the color and black level is very good.
The disc has a DD 2.0 audio track which is fine for what the movie is: a dialogue-only movie (sort of). There seems to be more visually stunning scenes than spoken words.
This is a collector’s series disc so there is no real supplements to talk about. If you are a fan of the movie (or of Elle Macphereson) than this movie is for you. However, there are 16 chapter stops if you are interested. It is rated R and runs 94 minutes.
