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.

There are some minor discrepancies between the films in the Studio Canal collection that were released in Europe and then in the U.S. (for example, The Third Man releases by Studio Canal/Optimum Home Entertainment and Lionsgate Films). There are no such discrepancies between the UK and French Blu-ray releases of Jean Renoir's La Grande Illusion. Like the French release, the UK release boasts a solid high-definition transfer of the recent 4K restoration of the film, which is guaranteed to please its fans.

I can only echo the comments from my review of the French release. Detail and clarity are indeed dramatically improved, while contrast stability has never been this strong before. Film grain is also very well resolved and evenly distributed throughout the entire film. Additionally, it is clear that after the restoration overzealos sharpening corrections have not been performed. However, the film has been carefully cleaned up and as a result now it looks virtually spotless. (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

The same audio options from the French Blu-ray release of La Grande Illusion are present on the UK Blu-ray release: 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).

The French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track gives the film much needed depth and fluidity. Additionally, as mentioned in our review of the French release, it is clear that various stabilizations have been performed, while crackle, pops, and background hiss have been cleaned up 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). There are no sync issues, high-frequency distortions, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
