Il Bidone Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Federico Fellini's Il Bidone arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer is beautiful. Close-ups boast outstanding depth, especially when there is an abundance of natural light (see screencapture #2), while the nighttime/darker footage impresses with excellent clarity (see screencapture #3). Contrast levels are stable throughout the entire film. There are no traces of problematic degraining corrections. The film also looks sharp, not sharpened, and vibrant. The whites and grays are stable and beautifully balanced, while the blacks are solid and natural. A couple of extremely light scratches are visible, but there are absolutely no large debris, cuts, damage marks, or stains. Obviously, imperfections have been carefully removed. Lastly, there are a few inherited shaky frame transitions (clearly source related), but there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. All in all, this is a lovely presentation of Fellini's classic film that is guaranteed to please its fans. (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).


Il Bidone Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: Italian LPCM 1.0. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is solid. The soundtrack by the great Nino Rota benefits the most from the lossless treatment as the music is indeed very well rounded yet quite vibrant. Also, there are no distortions during the woodwind and brass solos. The dialog is clean, stable, and easy to follow. The English translation is excellent.
