A fairly good presentation. The picture isn't the greatest (there are occasional scratches and it's a bit dark) but it's good for a 15 year old movie. Unfortunately, the remixed sound (as seems to be the case with many HK DVDs) is pretty mushy; I turned off all the surround sound stuff on my system and it actually sounded a bit better. The extras are the standard bare-bones bios and a few HK trailers for other Michelle Yeoh movies. Overall, despite the picture/sound problems, this DVD is worth picking up, if just for the fact that the subs (while poorly translated at times) are actually readable. Note: the title is written as "Yes Madam!" on the packaging, but the film hasn't been altered in any way.

Rating: **
