Accattone / Love Meetings

 (1961)

Accattone / Love Meetings Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Sloven, narcisstic and brutal, Vittorio is a small time pimp whose world is thrown into crisis when his meal-ticket is sent to jail. He re-establishes his usual business model by seducing Stella, at first just another innocent peasant girl. But this time Accattone finds himself instead seduced by Stella's angelic innocence and determines to go straight.

Accattone / Love Meetings 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, Pier Paolo Pasolini's Accattone arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

Note: Screencaptures #1-19 are from Accattone, while screencaptures #21-30 are from Comizi d'amore.

I did a few quick comparisons with my R2 DVD (from the now out of print Pier Paolo Pasolini Vol.1 box set, which Tartan Video released in the UK quite some time ago) and I could easily say that the improvements in terms of detail, depth, and especially clarity are indeed substantial. The overwhelming majority of the close-ups, for instance, convey very pleasing depth which is simply missing on the standard definition transfer (see screencapture #12). The nighttime footage also looks a lot tighter on the Blu-ray release. For example, during the party where Accattone pushes Stella into the arms of the two wealthy gentlemen there are absolutely no traces of the macroblocking that plagues the standard definition transfer. Contrast is also much more convincing. Color gradation is also a lot stronger - the whites and grays are far richer, while the blacks look solid. It needs to be said, however, that natural light plays a very important role in Accattone, which is why in a lot of sequences the blacks and whites have different complexion. There are no traces of compromising denoising/degraining corrections. Unsurprisingly, when projected the film boasts very strong organic qualities. Finally, there are no serious purely transfer-specific anomalies to report in this review. All in all, this is a competent and ultimately extremely pleasing presentation which will likely remain the definitive presentation of Accattone for years to come. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Accattone / Love Meetings Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Accattone arrives with a standard Italian LPCM 2.0 track. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles.

The audio appears to have been optimized as best as possible. The dialog has pleasing depth and crispness and there are no high-frequency distortions to report in this review. Obviously, as the action moves from one location to another there are minor fluctuations in terms of dynamic progression, but the loseless track is not to be blamed for them as they are clearly part of the film's original sound design. Lastly, there are no sync issues or audio dropouts.
