Well.... your question really is not answerable. The color IS bright and saturated. It's high contrast. But "nasty" is not something you can define. I would not use this film for subjects where skin tones are important. But, for landscapes, it could be nice. Then again, there is a member here who likes this film for portraits. It's all subjective. Really... try one and you'll see it right away. It's a unique film.
