A Sun-Tribe Myth From the Bakumatsu Era

 (1957)

A Sun-Tribe Myth From the Bakumatsu Era Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

When man-about-town Saheiji (the beloved comedian Frankie Sakai) finds himself unable to pay for a bill at a brothel, he is forced to remain there to work off his debt. However he finds his wit and resourcefulness enable him to turn this situation to his advantage, as he interacts with a whole range of characters, from rivalling courtesans to political activists.

A Sun-Tribe Myth From the Bakumatsu Era Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Yuzo Kawashima's A Sun-Tribe Myth from the Bakumatsu Era arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Eureka Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer was struck from a new restoration of the film done by Nikkatsu. Generally speaking, the basics here are indeed very strong - detail is very good, even where light is restricted, while clarity is consistently pleasing. Contrast levels are also stable throughout the entire film. Color saturation is also convincing. There are no traces of excessive degraining corrections. Some minor fluctuations are present, but overall grain is indeed well resolved. Sharpening corrections have not been performed. There are no serious frame transition issues, but there are a few light warps early into the film. I suspect that only viewers with very large screens will be able to spot them. Large debris, damage marks, cuts, and stains have been removed as best as possible, but some small vertical lines around the edges of the image frame are occasionally present (see screencapture #3). Regardless, this is a very pleasing organic presentation that makes it very easy to enjoy this virtually unseen by English speakers classic Japanese film. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


A Sun-Tribe Myth From the Bakumatsu Era Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: Japanese LPCM 2.0. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track has a very limited dynamic amplitude, but this should not be surprising considering the age of the film and its native sound design. Some light background hiss occasionally sneaks in, but it is never disturbing. There are no distortions, dropouts, or pops. The English translation is outstanding.
