Kamikaze Girls

 (2004)

Kamikaze Girls Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Momoko is a rococo Lolita whose idyllic dreams of Versailles clash sharply with her isolated existence in the Ibaraki hinterlands. When a chance encounter brings Momoko together with head-butting biker chick Ichigo, the quest for a mysterious embroiderer sets the unlikely friends, played by J-Pop stars Kyoko Fukada and Anna Tsuchiya, off on an explosive, pachinko-studded adventure.

Kamikaze Girls Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Tetsuya Nakashima's Kamikaze Girls arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Third Window Films.

The high-definition transfer for Kamikaze Girls is extremely difficult to grade. There are a number of wild color-manipulations and contrast fluctuations in the film that practically make it impossible to determine what is intentional and what isn't. There are certain scenes, for example, where the contrast is blown out so dramatically that the prevalent yellows become whites. Elsewhere, you would notice a very strong green tint that affects sharpness levels. I suspect, however, that a lot of these image manipulations are intentional, and Kamikaze Girls was more or less shot with an Amelie-esque look in mind (take a look at the wild orange and blue skies in the captures we have provided). Some mild noise-filtering has been applied, but, again, it is difficult to tell how much of the film's softer looking scenes were meant to look differently. Additionally, mild edge-enhancement is easy to spot during selected scenes, but macroblocking is not a serious issue of concern. Finally, the high-definition transfer is free of large cuts, debris, or stains. All in all, considering the highly stylized look of Kamikaze Girls, I am quite pleased with the presentation. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Kamikaze Girls Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Japanese Dolby Digital 5.1. For the record, Third Window Films have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The fact that the British distributors have not included a loseless audio track is somewhat disappointing, but I am willing to bet that their future Blu-ray releases will eventually offer either a DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby TrueHD track of some sort. Showbox's first Blu-ray releases also did not offer loseless audio, but now they do. I have a feeling that Third Windo Films would follow a similar route.

The Japanese Dolby Digital 5.1 track isn't overly impressive, but I would not say that it is disappointing either. I just feel that a loseless track would have been a lot more appropriate for many of the film's wild scenes. On the other hand, the dialog is definitely clean and easy to follow. The surround channels are active, but, again, do not expect any serious effects that would force you to reach out for your remote control. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hiss to report in this review.
