Amélie

 (2001)

Amélie Blu-ray features poor video and decent audio in this poor Blu-ray release

Bursting with imagination and having seen her share of tragedy and fantasy, Amélie is not like the other girls. When she grows up she becomes a waitress in a Montmartre bar run by a former dancer. Amelie enjoys simple pleasures until she discovers that her goal in life is to help others. To that end, she invents all sorts of tricks that allow her to intervene incognito into other people's lives, including an imbibing concierge and her hypochondriac neighbor. But Amélie's most difficult case turns out to be Nino Quicampoix, a lonely sex shop employee who collects photos abandoned at coin-operated photobooths.

For more about Amélie and the Amélie Blu-ray release, see Amélie Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz, Rufus, Yolande Moreau, Artus de Penguern, Urbain Cancelier
Narrator: André Dussollier
Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Amélie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and encoded with MPEG-4 AVC Amelie has received its first HD treatment via Canadian distrubs TVA Films. This is their first BD release (together with the Canadian Oscar entry C.R.A.Z.Y) for which the expectations were certainly high. After all Amelie boasts dazzling visuals which many, this reviewer included, believe should look absolutely amazing in 1080p if treated right. So, how does this Canadian release look?

Acceptable but not good is the short answer. The transfer is encoded in 1080i and not in 1080p. Hence you will immediately notice that during fast motion scenes (and as we all know Amelie has plenty of them) there is a notable amount of judder. In fact, there are scenes where the effect is equivalent to what you would notice on an improper PAL-NTSC standard-def conversion. On the other hand, greens and yellows, the Amelie's marquee foundation for the beautiful CGI effects, are rendered quite nicely. They are certainly livelier and with better depth than what previous SDVD releases of the film reveal. Yet, they definitely lack the image smoothness and lush definition 1080p offers. Blacks are good but also lacking the convincing saturation one would expect from a strong HD transfer. Contrast on the other hand varries from average to good with daylight scenes being more impressive than nighttime footage. To sum it all up Amelie has not been treated in the manner many expected and I certainly think that a solid 1080p transfer would reveal quite a different picture.


Amélie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Since Amelie is yet to be even announced in the US this Canadian release was expected by many who desire an HD presentation of the film. The preliminary info that I had indicated that there would be English and French subtitles for the main feature. Unfortunately, the disc does not offer any subtitles at all so obviously there was a miscommunication error somewhere. What you would find on this disc are two tracks: French Dolby TrueHD 5.1 and French Dolby Digital 5.1. I played primarily with the Dolby TrueHD mix and, yes, it is potent, complimenting the main feature quite nicely. In fact, there is notable difference between what Miramax provided on the US DVD and what I heard on the BD. There is plenty of depth and surround effects that will definitely turn your head. The Montmartre theme that follows Amelie when she does her trips to the photo booth for example is excellent. Finally, there are absolutely no cracks, hissing, or drop-outs that I could detect so you should enjoy the presentation without worrying about audio deficiencies. (Note: I am unsure why but there isn't a separate menu for the audio options. When the disc loads you will be taken straight to a generic menu where all of the extras are listed next to the Play option for the main feature. If you wish to adjust the audio you will have to use the pop-up key on your remote).
