La Grande Illusion Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

La Grande Illusion is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Studio Canal and Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. I've seen La Grande Illusion theatrically several times and have owned the film in various home video formats and can state positively this new transfer is something of a revelation. As some wag averred, even the last photochemical restoration was more a "shades of gray" rendering than an actual "black and white" rendering, but that has been markedly improved here. Contrast is outstanding, blacks are lustrous and whites are bright and crisp. Gray scale is also very nicely modulated. The restored elements are virtually damage free (eagle eyed videophiles may spot a moment or two of damage, like the white line that runs down the far right side of the frame during the credits). The almost nauseau inducing telecine wobble in some of the earlier home video incarnations has been completely ameliorated. This is one of the stunning success stories not only of archival preservation (thank heavens that negative was saved, albeit purely by chance) and the brave new world of digital restoration and scanning. La Grande Illusion looks absolutely marvelous and, best of all, naturally filmic in this brilliant new presentation.


La Grande Illusion Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

La Grande Illusion has both its original (mostly) French language version and its (mostly) German dub available via lossless mono tracks delivered via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mixes. I may come in for some drubbing here, so let me state this up front: the sound restoration done on La Grande Illusion is nothing short of miraculous. Previous theatrical prints and home video releases were marred by one of the tinniest, boxiest sounding soundtracks ever of a film of this vintage. The sound restoration team has worked wonders here, removing hiss without overly clipping the higher frequencies, and equalizing the midrange and low end to considerably beef up and normalize the sound. So, why not a higher score? For the simple reason that the stems themselves can only be "fixed" so much. There is such inherent shallowness to this soundtrack that only so much can be done for it, and though this is a marvelous new rendering of the soundtrack, it simply can't completely overcome the innate brittleness and boxy sound of the original recording. Take this all in perspective, though, because I reiterate the sound restoration here is nothing short of miraculous.
