Black Narcissus Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's Black Narcissus arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French distributors Carlotta Films.

The basic characteristics of the high-definition transfer Carlotta Films have used for their Blu-ray release of Black Narcissus appear to be identical to those of the high-definition transfer Criterion used for the film's U.S. Blu-ray release. Detail is excellent, clarity and contrast levels very pleasing, and image depth far better than that of the Collection Institut Lumiere 2DVD set which Warner France produced some time ago. Color reproduction is also superior, though the same light color pulsations I noticed on the Criterion release are also present here. Compression is also very good. For the record, I did not see any purely transfer related anomalies 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).


Black Narcissus Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0 and French DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0. For the record, Carlotta Films have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature.

I ran a couple of quick tests with my Criterion disc to see if there are any quality improvements, but the English DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0 track has the same dynamic amplitude the English LPCM mono track does. I also noticed the same light background hiss (during the wind howls). The dialog is crisp, stable, and easy to follow. There are no sync issues or audio dropouts to report in this review.
