Au Revoir Les Enfants Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Louis Malle's Au revoir les enfants arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Supervised and approved by director of photography Renato Berta, this digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine in 2K resolution from the original 35mm camera negative, and color corrected on a Specter Virtual Datacine with Pandora color correction. 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 supervisors: Renato Berta, Lee Kline.
Telecine colorist: Richard Deusy/Scanlab, Saint-Cloud, France."

Fine object detail and color reproduction are dramatically improved. The darker scenes from the Catholic school, for instance, do not convey the same blocky patterns that appear on Criterion's SDVD release of Au revoir les enfants. Background noise has also been substantially reduced. On the other hand, the daylight scenes look crisp and clear; there are no artifacts or heavy ringing either. Light edge-enhancement occasionally pops up here and there (see screencapture #7), but it is never distracting. I also noticed traces of various small noise corrections, but the film's grain structure is indeed kept intact. Lastly, there are absolutely no serious stability issues to report in this review. I also did not see any large damage marks, scratches, warps, or stains. To sum it all up, there are substantial upgrades in practically every key area we address in these reviews and no serious transfer-specific anomalies that I could spot. (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).


Au Revoir Les Enfants Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French LPCM 1.0 (with portions of German). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

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

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

The French LPCM 1.0 track has marginally better depth, perhaps also fluidity, in comparison to the French Dolby Digital 1.0 track from the SDVD release of Au revoir les enfants, but their dynamic amplitudes are practically identical. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. There are no disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review. I also prefer the slightly smaller optional English subtitles from the Blu-ray release.
