In the Realm of the Senses

 (1976)

In the Realm of the Senses Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A graphic portrayal of insatiable sexual desire, this film, set in 1936 and based on a true incident, depicts a man and a woman consumed by a transcendent, destructive love while living in an era of ever escalating imperialism and governmental control. Less a work of pornography than of politics, In the Realm of the Senses is a brave, taboo-breaking milestone.

For more about In the Realm of the Senses and the In the Realm of the Senses Blu-ray release, see In the Realm of the Senses Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Tatsuya Fuji, Eiko Matsuda, Aoi Nakajima, Yasuko Matsui, Meika Seri, Taiji Tonoyama
Director: Nagisa Ôshima

In the Realm of the Senses Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Nagisa Oshima's In the Realm of the Senses arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The improvements this 1080p high-definition transfer reveals in practically every area that previous SDVD releases of the film struggled with are incredible. Detail is fantastic, clarity breathtaking and contrast simply astonishing. The color-scheme is also so beautiful, it is actually a bit distracting at times (I have an old Australian DVD of this film and the gap in quality is enormous). The high-definition transfer is also notably healthy – there are absolutely no debris, scratches, or stains. Additionally, I did not spot any traces of artificial sharpening to report in this review. Finally, I would also like to mention that Criterion's Blu-ray disc contains the original uncut (NC-17 rated) version of the film, which to the best of my knowledge is still banned in Japan. To sum it all up, this is the most dramatic improvement of a classic film previously available on DVD to be offered on Blu-ray that I have seen thus far. Given the fact that there isn't a single release of In the Realm of the Senses worldwide that is worth owning, Criterion's Blu-ray disc is practically invaluable. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


In the Realm of the Senses Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Criterion have supplied a Japanese uncompressed monaural track for the Blu-ray release of Nagisa Oshima's In the Realm of the Senses. As expected, the audio treatment matches the video presentation. The dialog is notably crisp, crystal clear and exceptionally well balanced (something that was a major issue with previous DVD releases of the film); the traditional Japanese songs the geishas perform for example sound terrific. Additionally, there are no disturbing dropouts, pops, or hissings. Indeed, it is very easy to tell that this new Japanese audio track has been meticulously restored. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.
