Black Narcissus Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with VC-1 and granted a 1080p transfer, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's Black Narcissus arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors ITV.

This is a strong high-definition transfer. Generally speaking, fine object detail is pleasing, clarity good and contrast levels mostly stable. The color-scheme does not disappoint either; there are minor color pulsations that pop up here and there, but most, if not all, appear to be inherited. Damage - large scratches, cuts and stains - is not a serious issue of concern. All in all, this is a competent presentation of an important classic film. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to access its content regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Black Narcissus Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English Dolby Digital Mono. For the record, ITV have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The English Dolby Digital Mono track is pleasing, though far from impressive. Generally speaking, the dialog is clean, stable and easy to follow. Mild background hiss is present throughout the film, but it is not disturbing. For the record, while viewing the film I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or dropouts to report in this review.
