Fiddler on the Roof

 (1971)

Fiddler on the Roof Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Film version of the stage musical, based on the stories of Sholom Aleichem. Tevye the Milkman is a Jewish peasant in pre-Revolutionary Russia, coping with the day-to-day problems of 'shtetl' life, his Jewish traditions, his family (wife and daughters), and state-sanctioned pogroms.

Fiddler on the Roof Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

There may be some misguided comments about how soft Fiddler on the Roof's AVC encoded 1080p 2.34:1 transfer looks, most likely from people who never saw the film theatrically to begin with. As Jewison commented himself when he accepted Oswald Morris' Academy Award for cinematography, the film does in fact look like it was photographed through a silk stocking. Images are diffused and at times slightly surreal looking. But that's the way this film looked originally. This is a stellar transfer which offers excellent color (though the first few minutes after the Entr'acte are just a tad pallid compared to the rest of the film), exceptional clarity and very pleasing fine detail. There are a few blemishes and flecks which dot the film from time to time, and you'll notice some problematic flicker in the opening few moments. While there is some very moderate edge enhancement on display, grain is intact and the film retains a very natural and nicely textured appearance. Overall, this is a remarkably faithful presentation and one which should easily delight lovers of this film and its very evocative look.


Fiddler on the Roof Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Fiddler on the Roof has been granted a brand spanking new lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix for this Blu-ray release, and the results are largely spectacular. The Bock-Harnick score rings from the speakers with a freshness and vitality that will astound a lot of listeners, and Williams' brilliant work is fully on display in the warm and lustrous tones of the strings, which he utilizes so effectively through the film, both in solo and ensemble moments. Various sound effects are very smartly placed around the soundfield, something astute listeners will notice right off the bat with the preternaturally quiet opening of the film, which slowly builds environmental sounds before Tevye's entrance. Dialogue is clean and crisp and also very well positioned. Fidelity is very good, and in fact is too good a couple of times, by which I mean distortion within the original stems is readily discernable. Listen for example to Michele Marsh's dialogue right before "Matchmaker" starts for a good indication of what I'm talking about; it's nothing horribly egregious, but just the slightest bit of fuzziness creeps through. The film's generous use of post-dubbing is also a bit more firmly on display than it has been in previous home theater iterations, with clearly audible differences in levels and ambient hall effects in some of the looped moments. Overall, though, this is a thrillingly effective soundtrack that preserves and enhances one of the glories of that era's scores.
