Breathless Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 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 Breathless arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

The following message is included on this Blu-ray disc:

"This high-definition Blu-ray involved a large amount of 2K restoration work. Director of photography Raoul Coultard supervised the color timing. Frames had disappeared from certain shots in the film and could not be replaced using current techniques."

This high-definition transfer is not identical to the one used by Criterion for their Blu-ray release of Breathless. Still, it is a very strong one. Generally speaking, fine object detail is very good and clarity levels pleasing. Compared to the Criterion release, the outdoor scenes tend to have a slightly rougher look - they appear brighter and occasionally noisier. The grain is also more prominent. On the Criterion release everything looks slightly darker, toned down and better balanced; some of the indoor scenes, however, are also not as detailed as they are on this release. The close-ups are very pleasing on both releases. Once again, I noticed traces of mild edge-enhancement; macroblocking, however, is not an issue of concern. The color-scheme does not disappoint; blacks are rich and well saturated while whites and grays look fresh and unmanipulated. Finally, there are no serious stability issues. I also did not see any large cuts, marks, stains, or debris to report in this review. (Note: This Blu-ray disc is Region A and B "locked". Therefore, if you reside in a territory covered by one of these two regions you will be able to play it on your PS3s or SAs. Please note that there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu. For the record, the main menu can be set in one of the following languages: German, Spanish, French, Dutch, Portuguese, English, and Japanese).


Breathless Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (Mono), German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (Mono), and Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (Mono). For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Japanese, and Turkish subtitles for the main feature. (Please note that some of the English dialog in the film - such as the English dialog from Patricia's lunch meeting - has embedded French subtitles).

The French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is very pleasing. As far as I am concerned, its dynamic amplitude is identical to that of the French LPCM 1.0 track from the Criterion Blu-ray release of Breathless. Once again, there is sporadic mild background noise that I was able to hear, but it is well within the limitations a film of this age is likely to possess. Lastly, there are no serious balance issues with Martial Solal's music score. I also did not detect any annoying pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
