La Grande Illusion Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean Renoir's La Grande Illusion arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Studio Canal.

Recently restored in 4K by Studio Canal (in association with La Cinematheque de Toulouse), La Grande Illusion has literally been given a new life. Not only is detail dramatically improved, but the film now also conveys outstanding depth and excellent fluidity. Grain is also evenly distributed and well resolved throughout the entire film, further enhancing the already excellent organic qualities of the high-definition transfer (take a look at screenshots #11 and 17). There are no traces of overzealous post-production sharpening. Problematic degraining corrections have not been performed either. Lastly, the restorers have effectively removed starches, debris, cuts, and stains, and then stabilized problematic frames. As a result, the film looks virtually spotless. Indeed, this is a mighty impressive restoration, and clearly the best presentation of a classic film Studio Canal have produced to date. (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. Also, please note that the disc's main menu can be set in one of the following languages: English, French, or German).


La Grande Illusion Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (with portions of English, German, and Russian). For the record, Studio Canal have provided optional English, German, and French subtitles for the main feature. (Please note that the German subtitles do not appear when German is spoken, and the French subtitles do not appear when French is spoken).

I don't have any detailed information about the specific restoration work that has been done to share in this review. It is obvious, however, that various stabilizations have been performed, and crackle, pops and background hiss removed as best as possible. (The only time some extremely light background hiss is noticeable is during the Christmas celebration in the final third of the film). Unsurprisingly, clarity and depth are very pleasing. Also, there are no annoying high-frequency distortions to report. There are no sync issues or audio dropouts either.
