Bande à part Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Luc Godard's Band of Outsiders arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French distributors Gaumont.

I have mixed feelings about the presentation. It could have been spectacular, but it is decent at best. Earlier this year I noticed that Gaumont started applying minor noise corrections on many of their Blu-ray releases. The majority of them were easy to tolerate. However, on Band of Outsiders the denoising, though extremely light, is quite easy to spot. Most close-ups (see screencapture #9) as well as selected panoramic shots (see screencapture #16) look soft and even flat. Occasionally, during quick camera zooms light smearing is also present. I suspect that most viewers probably will not be bothered by these side effects, but I am also convinced that there will be a good number of sensitive viewers that will be distracted by them. Black levels have also been slightly elevated, but the overall balance with the grays and whites is relatively good. Edge-enhancement is not a serious issue of concern, but it is obvious that light sharpening corrections have been applied as well (see screencapture #4). There are no serious compression or stability issues. Large damage marks, debris, splices or cuts are nowhere to be seen. All in all, while Gaumont's release of Band of Outsiders is very clearly a step up in terms of quality, as far as I am concerned it does not have the consistent organic look it should have had. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. However, its main menu is encoded in 1080/50i. Because only a few players in North America can playback 1080/50i content, and the PS3 is not one of them, this means that the overwhelming majority of players will not be able to access the main feature. Therefore, the disc is flagged in the database as Region-B "locked").


Bande à part Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Gaumont have provided optional English and French SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The narration and the dialog are clean, crisp, and stable. The soundtrack by legendary composer Michel Legrand also gets a decent boost, though you should not expect to a hear a wide range of nuanced dynamics. The famous dance scene in the bar, however, definitely sounds fuller and better rounded, while elsewhere in the film the gunshots are crisper. The English translation is very good.
