Last Year in Marienbad Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Alain Resnais' Last Year at Marienbad arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

This is a strong transfer that comes extremely close to the one director Resnais approved for the Criterion Region-A release of his film. Contrast is very good, clarity superb and detail strong. The color-scheme is as good as that of the Criterion release - the blacks are lush and well saturated while the whites are gentle and natural looking. There are all sorts of lovely grays as well.

Generally speaking, edge-enhancement is not a serious issue of concern. I spotted its presence a couple of times, but, once again, I am absolutely certain that the overwhelming majority of you won't be bothered by it. Macroblocking is nowhere to be seen.

There are absolutely no stability issues. When blown through a digital projector, Last Year at Marienbad remains tight around the edges. This being said, I share the opinion that there are certain scenes that look slightly better on the Criterion release. The grain, as revealed by our screencaptures, is fully intact.

Finally, I am going to grade this transfer as a 4 instead of 5 only because I spotted a few minor flecks popping up here and there that I did not see on the Criterion release (obviously, the U.S. distributors have thoroughly cleaned up their transfer). Still, this is one mighty impressive transfer that makes me very excited about the future films we are going to see introduced via the Studio Canal Collection. (Note: This disc is coded for Regions A and B. Therefore, in order to access its content, you must have a native Region-A, native Region-B, or Region-Free player. Please note that there is PAL content preceding the main menu).


Last Year in Marienbad Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. I viewed the film with the original French track.

I could not hear much of a difference between the French LPCM 1.0 track found on the Criterion release and the French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track this release arrives with. The dialog is as crisp, clear and easy to follow as it is on the LPCM 1.0 track. The lack of mild background noise/hiss is where the Criterion release is a step ahead of this one. Still, I have no major reservations here whatsoever. For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English, German, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish and Japanese subtitled for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.
