1900

 (1976)

1900 Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Set in Italy, the film follows the lives and interactions of two boys/men, one born a bastard of peasant stock, the other born to a land owner. The drama spans from 1900 to about 1945, and focuses mainly on the rise of Fascism and the peasants' eventual reaction by supporting Communism, and how these events shape the destinies of the two main characters.

For more about 1900 and the 1900 Blu-ray release, see 1900 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Robert De Niro, Gérard Depardieu, Dominique Sanda, Donald Sutherland, Burt Lancaster, Alida Valli
Director: Bernardo Bertolucci

1900 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Novecento is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Bertolucci and his cinematographer Vittorio Storaro paint with light throughout this film, using seasonal changes as counterpoint to the interior life of the characters, and some of the mist strewn sylvan settings may lead some to believe this transfer is overly soft, but it isn't for the most part. This will in fact be something of a minor revelation for those who have seen Novecento only in a number of at least relatively substandard home video releases through the years, many of which were extremely poorly color timed. The overall image here is crisp and precise (with certain exceptions, noted below) with some very appealing fine detail in close-ups. Color is accurate, appropriately robust in some of the autumnal scenes but almost desaturated at other points, intentionally so. Some midrange shots, especially those capturing wide vistas out of doors, have a relatively softer appearance than the bulk of the film. As with most HD masters provided to Olive, there has been little to no digital tweaking of the source elements, and so natural film grain is completely intact, as are a few very minor blemishes, something rather negligible given the film's extreme length, and generally speaking this retains a beautifully natural cinematic appearance that very accurately recreates a mid-seventies film look. Some of this film is almost like a Breugel painting come to life, with peasants working in honey colored wheat fields with crimson-orange skies bleeding in the background, and this high definition presentation offers it all rather beautifully. About the only complaints some videophiles may have is due to some slightly inconsistent contrast, which seems to lurch just a bit erratically from interior to exterior shots, and some resultant murkiness of shadow detail in a couple of very dimly lit sequences.


1900 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Novecento features three lossless audio options, an English language track in DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and two DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mixes, one in Italian and one in French. As with many multi-national productions, actors seem to have spoken in their native languages, so the "big" American stars like Lancaster, Hayden, De Niro and Sutherland speak English, but it also appears that Depardieu and Sanda did as well. Several other characters are obviously dubbed, though there's no horrible difference in reverb or general ambience with regard to these looped elements and the bulk of the soundtrack. (It doesn't appear that Novecento was filmed silently and entirely post-looped, as was the custom in the Italian film industry well into the seventies.) The soundstage here is fairly narrow even in the 2.0 mix, but fidelity is strong, and dialogue, effects and Ennio Morricone's elegantly elegiac score are all presented cleanly and clearly.
