In the Mood for Love Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Wong Kar-wai's In the Mood for Love arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Supervised by director of photography Mark Lee Ping-bin, this new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 2K Datacine from a 35mm interpositive. Image System's Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain and noise management, and flicker reduction, while MTI's DRS was used to clean up dirt, debris, and scratches and to fix splices, warps, and jitter.

Scanning: Eclair, Epinay-sur-Seine, France.
Transfer supervisor: Mark Lee Ping-bin.
Colorist: Sheri Eisenberg/Colorworks, Culver City, CA."

The high-definition transfer does not appear to have been struck from a new master produced from a new scan. Detail is mostly good, especially during select close-ups (see screencapture #1 and 2), but noise is constantly present, and during some of the nighttime sequences definition suffers (see screencaptures #13 and 14). There are a few sequences where the age of the source used to produce the high-definition transfer clearly shows; tiny flecks pop up while additional noise creeps in and further affects definition. Generally speaking, color reproduction is good. The variety of reds, yellows, and browns remain stable throughout the entire film, but color saturation is not always consistent. Furthermore, there are some traces of extremely light sharpening (see screencapture #13), but few viewers will likely notice them. On the other hand, there are no traces of excessive degraining. Also, serious banding and aliasing patterns do not overwhelm the high-definition transfer. All in all, the Blu-ray release of this most beautiful film represents an upgrade in quality over the R1 DVD release, but clearly there is still plenty of room for improvement. For the record, the high-definition digital restoration of In The Mood for Love has been approved by cinematographer Mark Lee Ping-bin. (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).


In the Mood for Love Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless audio track is a good enough reason to recommend that you consider replacing your DVD release of In the Mood for Love with the Blu-ray release as soon as possible. Michael Galasso and Shigeru Umebayashi's uncharacteristically beautiful soundtrack gets exactly the type of boost I was hoping it would. Instead of sounding anemic, the excellent violin solos are now thick and well rounded, while Nat 'King' Cole's beautiful voice is notably lush. There are small details, such as falling raindrops, that are also far more pronounced. The dialog is crisp, stable, and well balanced with the music. Also, there are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
