Amélie

 (2001)

Amélie Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent 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 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz, Rufus, Yolande Moreau, Artus de Penguern, Urbain Cancelier

Amélie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Amelie arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Canadian distributors Alliance.

This new 1080p high-definition transfer represents a serious upgrade in terms of video quality over the 1080i high-definition transfer TVA Films used in 2008 for their Blu-ray release of Amelie. Fine object detail is very good, clarity substantially better, and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. The awkward softness from the 1080i transfer is completely gone - many of the beautiful close-ups now look sharp and well detailed, while the panoramic vistas from the train station convey very pleasing depth and tightness. I noticed a few traces of mild edge-enhancement but all of them were extremely easy to tolerate. I did not see any traces of heavy noise corrections. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. This being said, minor compressions artifacts occasionally pop up here and there; the larger your screen is, the easier it should be for some of you to spot them. There are a couple of scenes where I also noticed mild background flicker. Still, this is a very strong high-definition transfer that eliminates a lot of the serious issues that appeared on the old 1080i high-definition transfer TVA used for their Blu-ray release of Amelie. If you like the film, and require English-subtitles, do not hesitate to order this disc. You will not be disappointed with the presentation. (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).


Amélie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and French (Canadian) Dolby Digital 5.1. For the record, Alliance have provided imposed English subtitles for the main feature. They appear inside the image frame.

The French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is very strong. The bass is rich and well rounded, the surround channels very intelligently used, and the high-frequencies not overdone. The dialog is crisp, clear, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. Also, there are no balance issues with Yann Tiersen's music score.

I still have the old TVA Films release of Amelie with me and was able to run a couple of quick comparisons. Something very interesting that I noticed is that the surround channels are more prominent on the Alliance disc. On the TVA Films disc everything sounds a lot more compact, lacking strong definition. The dynamic amplitude of the French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is also marginally better. For the record, the English translation is very good.
