Boudu Saved From Drowning

 (1932)

Boudu Saved From Drowning Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Boudu is a Parisian tramp who takes a suicidal plunge into the Seine, and is rescued by Monsieur Lestingois, a well-to-do bookseller with liberal ideas, who takes him home and tries to reconcile him with life and society. But Boudu is bored in this cosy little nest and uses his time to make trouble in the peaceful households around him.

For more about Boudu Saved From Drowning and the Boudu Saved From Drowning Blu-ray release, see Boudu Saved From Drowning Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Boudu Saved From Drowning Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.19:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean Renoir's Boudu Saved from Drowning arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Park Circus.

The high-definition transfer Park Circus have used for their Blu-ray release of Jean Renoir's legendary film has been struck from a newly restored master - the restoration, which involved a 2K digital scanning of the original nitrate camera negative and a preservation fine grain master positive, was done by L'immagine Ritrovata (Bologna) and Digimage laboratories (Paris) - courtesy of French distributors Pathe. Naturally, there are massive improvements in terms of detail and color reproduction. The outdoor scenes, for instance, convey tremendous depth, while clarity and especially contrast levels are remarkably consistent. On the Criterion SDVD release of the film the park sequence where Boudu meets the rich businessman look soft and even out of focus; on the Blu-ray they appear exceptionally crisp and well detailed. As far as clarity is concerned, the biggest improvements are noticeable during the dark nighttime scenes - see the scene where Boudu prevents Lestingois from spending the night with his lover (screencapture #11) - as now there is substantially more detail and better balanced blacks and grays. Various stabilization enhancements have been performed as well, and aside from a couple of inherited problematic frame transitions, the film looks the best it ever has - stable and healthy. Lastly, I did not see any signs of excessive noise reduction; naturally, a fine layer of light grain appears throughout the entire film. All in all, I feel very confident stating that Boudu Saved from Drowning is the best Blu-ray release Park Circus have produced to date. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Boudu Saved From Drowning Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French LPCM 2.0. For the record, Park Circus have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

Newly restored, the audio does not disappoint. Though its dynamic amplitude is rather limited, the flute solos, for instance, convey very good depth and fluidity. Balance has also been greatly improved, especially as far as the dialog is concerned, while various clicks, pops, and hissings have been eliminated. The English translation is very good.
