Belle de jour

 (1967)

Belle de jour Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Forty-two years after it was first released, Luis Buñuel's story of an affluent and frigid housewife who acts out her masochistic sexual fantasies by taking a part- time job at a Paris brothel spending her afternoons exploring exciting escapades is still one of the the most provocative films you'll find.

For more about Belle de jour and the Belle de jour Blu-ray release, see Belle de jour Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Jean Sorel, Michel Piccoli, Geneviève Page, Pierre Clémenti, Françoise Fabian
Director: Luis Buñuel

Belle de jour 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, Luis Buñuel's Belle de jour arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

This is a very strong transfer that will please a lot of you! Contrast is lovely, detail excellent and clarity pleasing. Aside from some minor pulsations that I noticed popping up here and there, the color-scheme is also pleasing. Blacks and reds in particular are much stronger than those seen on the SDVD release of Belle de jour included in "The Luis Buñuel Collection" the British distributors released quite some time ago. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are most definitely not a serious issue of concern.

The grain structure of the film is intact. Many of the close-ups, for example, reveal terrific organic qualities. There are no traces of excessive DNR filtering. This being said, I must note that this is not a freshly restored transfer – there are quite a few specks popping up here and there as well as a few scratches. Still, this is one very strong release, which most definitely deserves your attention. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" disc. Therefore, unless you have a native Region-B or Region-Free player, you won't be able to access its content).


Belle de jour Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are four audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: French: DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. I opted for the original French track.

The French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is of excellent quality. It reveals qualities that I never noticed on my R2 SDVD. Many of the unusual sounds Belle de jour is known for are indeed very easy to hear now. The dialog is crisp, clear and very easy to follow. Additionally, there are absolutely no disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings. Simply put, the French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is very convincing.

I quickly tested the English and Spanish dubs to hear how they compare with the French track, and I must admit that they are in fact quite good – the dialog certainly is very easy to follow. Still, I strongly recommend that you opt for the original French track.

For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, German, Spanish, and Swedish subtitles for the main feature. They are white and just as I like them – not too big.
