The focus on this film (British prints anyway) is VERY soft (unlike the flat trailer) and you can expect complaints however carefully you set it.

As far as having "soft focus", Cinematographer Ashley Rowe deliberately diffused the image:

quote:
“We used stockings over the lenses for all the English scenes to give it a softer, gentler tone,” said cinematographer Ashley Rowe. (One wonders if this doesn’t also make this film more marketable to American tastes.) A naked lens was used for the Hollywood scenes, giving a harder, cleaner edge with more shadow and a fiercer tone.
