Amarcord

 (1973)

Amarcord Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A year in the life of the Mediterranean seaside town through a series of nostalgic anecdotal vignettes of a fantastic array of events and characters, all tenderly shot in soft, muted colours. Loopy teachers, strange foreigners, curvaceous women, a skinny nymphomaniac and a crazed solitary motorcyclist are just a few of the bizarre, but very human, characters experiencing the wonder and disillusionment of their everyday lives.

For more about Amarcord and the Amarcord Blu-ray release, see Amarcord Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Magali Noël, Bruno Zanin, Pupella Maggio, Ciccio Ingrassia, Armando Brancia, Nando Orfei
Director: Federico Fellini

Amarcord Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Federico Fellini's Amarcord arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This high-definition transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Maria Palazzola.
Telecine colorist: Kathy Thomson/Modern Videofilm, Los Angeles.
Additional color correction: Steve Calalang/Technicolor, New York."

This Blu-ray release of Amarcord represents a substantial upgrade in quality over the SDVD rerelease of the film, which Criterion produced in 2006. Though it appears that the same master was used, this high-definition transfer conveys stronger contrast levels, clarity, and grain structure. Color stability is also improved. While on the SDVD release the reds and blues often times pulsate, here they are richer and stronger. This being said, occasionally random light noise is still easy to see, especially during the daylight scenes. Mild edge-enhancement pops up here and there as well. There are also traces of various noise corrections. The integrity of the film, however, is untouched - the corrections have partially restored what time has damaged, not added to it. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Amarcord Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Italian LPCM 1.0 and English Dolby Digital 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appear inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from a 35mm magnetic soundtrack. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation."

The Italian LPCM 1.0 track is pleasing. It has a decent range of dynamics and overall strong organic qualities. The dialog is clean, stable, and easy to follow. There are no balance issues with legendary composer Nino Rota's music score either. I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
