How is this DVD? I have heard good and bad.

Are you talking about DVD quality or the movie quality. I'm guessing the DVD quality.
If so, there are a few versions out there that are very poorly done. Here is a link that identifies one of these poor versions:
Link to Red Violin Review
The one I got as a gift is distributed by Alliance Atlantis. I'm not sure whether this is the Canadian version, but it is of poor quality... I mean, it's fullscreen and it's only in dolby surround.
I've found some website somewhere that there is also a version from Lions Gate. This one is widescreen and has Dolby Digital 5.1.
There is one from Universal Home Video that is widescreen and contains DD5.1 and DTS tracks. This the one you want.
DVDPlanet (as mentioned in one of the posts above) has this movie listed but won't be available until 05/20/2003.
In summary, when buying this movie online, you have to make sure which one you're getting because I've found that they display the image of the good quality one (Universal), but then the details contradicts the image cover.
If you are asking about the movie, I don't know because I haven't seen it yet. (I'm gonna return the one I have and get the good one).
Hope this helps.
