Ivan's Childhood

 (1962)

Ivan's Childhood Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The debut feature from the great Andrei Tarkovsky, Ivan’s Childhood is an evocative, poetic journey through the shadows and shards of one boy’s war-torn youth. Moving back and forth between the traumatic realities of WWII and the serene moments of family life before the conflict began, Tarkovsky’s film remains one of the most jarring and unforgettable depictions of the impact of violence on children in wartime.

For more about Ivan's Childhood and the Ivan's Childhood Blu-ray release, see Ivan's Childhood Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Nikolay Burlyaev, Nikolay Grinko, Yevgeni Zharikov, Andrey Konchalovskiy, Valentin Zubkov, Valentina Malyavina
Director: Andrey Tarkovsky

Ivan's Childhood Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Andrei Tarkovsky's Ivan's Childhood arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"This high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 4K from a 35mm fine-grain master positive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and jitter were manually removed using MIT's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, noise reduction, and flicker.

Transfer supervisor: Lee Kline.
Colorist Joe Gawler/Technicolor, New York."

The high-definition transfer is beautiful. The dramatically improved depth and especially clarity during the nighttime sequences actually allow one to see objects that are basically lost on the R1 DVD release. Where there is plenty of light, the various close-ups also look fantastic (see screencaptures #3 and 13). There are no traces of excessive degraining. Problematic sharpening corrections have not been performed either. Colors are stable and lush, but never looking artificially boosted. There is a wide range of rich blacks, solid grays and gentle whites, all of which are consistently well balanced. Furthermore, it is obvious that the film has been carefully cleaned up as there are no large debris, scratches, flecks, or stains. There are no serious warps and frame transitions issues. Compression is also very good. All in all, this is a very impressive upgrade of Criterion's DVD release of Ivan's Childhood, and one that will likely end up on my Top 10 list at the end of the year. (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).


Ivan's Childhood Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Russian LPCM 1.0 (with a few small portions of German). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

Clarity and crispness are virtually identical on the Blu-ray and DVD releases, but depth is definitely improved. The difference is not subtle and during select sequences the gap in quality immediately becomes obvious. The dialog is crisp, stable, and easy to follow. While viewing the film, I also did not detect any pops, cracks, distortions, or heavy background hiss to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
