Amélie

 (2001)

Amélie Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional 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 4.5 out of 5.

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

Amélie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 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 British distributors Momentum Pictures.

The high-definition transfer is not identical to the one Alliance used for the Canadian Blu-ray release of Amelie, but it appears practically identical to the one Lionsgate Films used for their U.S. Blu-ray release. Unsurprisingly, detail is excellent from start to finish, contrast levels solid, and clarity excellent (if you still have a DVD release of Amelie in your library, compare screenshot #3 with the corresponding scene from the DVD to see what a massive upgrade in quality the Blu-ray offers). The biggest difference between the Canadian release and this UK release is in the area of color saturation. On the Canadian release colors are slightly toned down while on the UK release they appear slightly boosted. As a result, on the UK release the image is often marginally thicker, but I doubt most viewers would be able to tell unless they played both releases at the same time. Furthermore, compression is also marginally better on the UK release, so if you are projecting your films on a very large screen and are yet to add Amelie to your library, you should probably consider the UK release over the Canadian release. But if you already have the Canadian release, it is probably best that you consider a more important upgrade of a favorite film as the compression benefits are indeed quite small. Lastly, I did not see any evidence suggesting that problematic noise corrections have been performed. All in all, this is a fine Blu-ray release that should make a lot of English-speaking fans of Amelie residing in Region-B territories very happy. (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).


Amélie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Momentum Pictures have provided optional English and English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

I did a few quick comparisons with my Canadian disc and as far as I am concerned the two French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 tracks are identical. The bass is thick and well rounded, the surround channels intelligently used (with the various ambient effects standing out), and Yann Tiersen's music score getting a decent dynamic boost. The dialog is always crisp, clean, and very easy to follow. The English translation is excellent.
