Certified Copy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Abbas Kiarostami's Certified Copy arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The film was shot with 4K RAW using a Red digital camera, and the entire production was completed in a fully digital workflow. The color grading and digital interpositive were approved by director Abbas Kiarostami and director of photography Luca Bigazzi. The final color-corrected DPX files were output to Rec. 709 high-definition color space for BD and DVD release.

Colorist: Nazzareno Neri/Technicolor, Rome."

The screencaptures included with our review appear in the following order:

1. Certified Copy: 1-19.
2. The Report: 21-26.

Quite predictably, Criterion's presentation of Certified Copy, which was shot with the Red One Camera, is enormously impressive. Detail and clarity are magnificent, while colors are notably rich and vibrant yet never looking unnatural. The outdoor sequences, and especially those with plenty of natural light, also convey tremendous depth. There is no problematic flicker. The high-definition transfer is also free of banding patterns. Compression is very good.
I compared selected scenes from Criterion's release with the same scenes from Artificial Eye's release (reviewed here) and could not see any major discrepancies to address in this review. In fact, from what I could tell, it appears that, like Artificial Eye's release, Criterion's release also uses a high-definition transfer that was sourced from the same MK2 master. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Certified Copy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (with portions of Italian and English). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. There are two options: English subtitles only for the portions of the dialog that are not in English, and English SDH subtitles for the entire film.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The film features a fully digital 5.1 surround soundtrack. The audio for this release was mastered at 24-bit from the original digital audio master files using Pro Tools HD."

Considering the fact that Certified Copy is primarily a dialog-driven feature, the lossless track serves the film exceptionally well. The dialog is clean, stable, and very easy to follow. The various random noises - birds chirping, car noises, bells, etc. - are always very crisp. Also, there are no audio dropouts to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
