Jour De Fete

 (1949)

Jour De Fete Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Once a year, the fair comes to the sleepy French country town of Sainte- Severe- sur- Indre. The locals poke fun at their postman, François, and, having got him drunk, they lead him to a tent to watch a short educational film. The film is promoting revolutionary methods of improving mail delivery in the United States. François decides that he can use some of the ideas to improve his productivity...

Jour De Fete Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The BFI's Dual Format Edition of Jacques Tati's Jour de fete contains two versions of the film, both encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted 1080p transfers: the 1949 Thomsoncolor version, running at approximately 79 minutes (01.19.57), and the alternative 1964 version, running at approximately 81 minutes (01.21.59).

Please note that the screencaptures included in our review appear in the following order:

1. Screencaptures #2-14: Thomsoncolor version.
2. Screencaptures # 15-22: 1964 version.

Both versions of Jour de fete need serious restoration work. The Thomsoncolor version, in particular, is plagued by multiple damage marks, scratches, debris, and even small warps. The color-scheme is also very unstable, though admittedly there are different inherited limitations that contribute to the instability. Contrast fluctuates, with many of the nighttime sequences looking disappointingly flat. One of the most serious issues, however, is the presence of the inherited vertical lines (a byproduct of the Thomsoncolor process). Combined with some of the flicker, warps, and debris mentioned earlier, many of the daylight sequences look disappointingly weak. Finally, there are some transition issues as well.

Portions of the 1964 version look rather good (see screencaptures #17 and 18). There is decent depth and even pleasing clarity. Healthy grain is also visible. Elsewhere, however, there are various rather large damage marks and edge wear. Contrast fluctuations are also present. Contrast is uneven but the majority of the time it is far better than that observed on the Thomsoncolor version. To sum it all up, there is a lot of room for serious improvements in virtually every single area we address in our reviews on both versions of Jour de fete. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Jour De Fete Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Each of the two versions of Jour de fete arrives with a French LPCM 2.0. track. For the record, the BFI have provided optional English subtitles for each version.

The lossless track enhances Jean Yatove's score quite well. The strings sound fuller and better rounded while the flute solos have the appropriate crispness. Some light background hiss remains and occasionally there are even small pops, but the narration and dialog are easy to follow. The English translation is good.
