Army of Shadows

 (1969)

Army of Shadows Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The film follows a band of resistance fighters in German-controlled France. As the war continues, the grip of the occupying force tightens, and friendships, loyalty and trust give way to suspicion, secrecy and loss.

For more about Army of Shadows and the Army of Shadows Blu-ray release, see Army of Shadows Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Lino Ventura, Paul Meurisse, Jean-Pierre Cassel, Simone Signoret, Claude Mann, Paul Crauchet
Director: Jean-Pierre Melville

Army of Shadows 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, Jean-Pierre Melville's Army of Shadows arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of StudioCanal.

The high-definition transfer uses as a foundation the same restoration of Army of Shadows which Criterion had access to when they prepared their Blu-ray release of this classic French film for the U.S. market. The color-schemes of the two releases, however, are not identical. Greens and yellows are marginally stronger here, while on the Criterion release the reds appear to have been elevated (I have included a number of different screencaptures for you to compare, but take a look at screencapture #13 and screencapture #2 from our review of the Criterion release where some of the discrepancies are very easy to see). Brightness levels, however, are virtually identical on the two releases. There are no obvious discrepancies in the contrast settings either. Generally speaking, detail and depth are again very pleasing, even during the many nighttime sequences. There are no traces of problematic deraining corrections, though during the restoration process some careful noise reduction was likely performed. With a few minor exceptions (see the light artifacts in screencapture #4), compression is good. When projected, the film also remains tight around the edges. Lastly, there are no large debris, cuts, damage marks, or warps to report in this review. (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).


Army of Shadows Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, StudioCanal have provided optional English, German, and French SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The French audio track is excellent. I ran a few quick tests with the lossless track from the Criterion release and could not hear any discrepancies. The scene where Philippe Gerbier jumps from the plane and later into the film the execution scene sound exactly the same. The dialog is crisp, very clean, stable, and easy to follow. The English translation is excellent (but the English subtitles are a little bit smaller than those on the Criterion release).
