Floating Weeds Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Yasujirô Ozu's Floating Weeds arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Eureka Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer is somewhat inconsistent. While detail is mostly satisfying, depth is often quite problematic; a number of the outdoor sequences in particular look notably flat (see screencapture #1). Many of the close-ups also look disappointingly soft (see screencapture #8). The good news here is that serious sharpening corrections have not been performed. But there is very little healthy and properly resolved grain, which is why the film does not have the convincing organic look it ought to have. Also, most colors are relatively stable, but the blacks are often weak, at times looking even desaturated. Lastly, some small frame skips are easy to spot, as well as tiny flecks and scratches. All in all, the Blu-ray release represents a step up in quality over the R1 DVD release of the film, but it is quite clear that there is plenty of room for sizable improvements. (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).


Floating Weeds Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

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

Generally speaking, the dialog is stable and easy to follow. Some light hiss occasionally sneaks in but it never becomes distracting. The range of nuanced dynamics is fairly limited, but this should not be surprising considering the film's modest sound design. There are no serious audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
