Le Amiche Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Michelangelo Antonioni's Le Amiche arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

I was very impressed with how La signora senza camelie looked on Blu-ray, but Le Amiche looks even better. Frankly, comparing the old R1 SDVD release of the film, which Image Entertainment produced in 2001, with this fabulous new Blu-ray release is absolutely pointless - the gap in quality between the two is enormous. The SDVD transfer was interlaced, blocky, marred by endless scratches and heavy edge-enhancement, etc. I mean, you name it, the SDVD transfer had it.

A lot has changed since 2001. Le Amiche was recently restored by Cineteca del Comune di Bologna with funding provided by The Film Foundation and Gucci and it really is quite unbelievable how good the film looks now. Fine object detail and clarity are simply fantastic, while the balanced contrast levels far exceeded even my wildest expectations. For example, at very end of the film, where Clelia is seen leaving Turin, I could see various objects that I was never able to see on the SDVD release -- this is how dramatic the improvements are. Color reproduction is also excellent; the variety of whites, grays, and blacks are now well balanced and incredibly stable (the beach sequence looks breathtakingly beautiful). Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are never an issue of concern. I also did not see any traces of heavy noise corrections; on the contrary, there is an excellent, very consistent light layer of grain throughout the entire film. Lastly, the film has been thoroughly cleaned up - there are absolutely no cuts, large damage marks, or debris. Fantastic release! (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).


Le Amiche Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Italian DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The audio treatment is as impressive as the video treatment. For example, the irregular background hiss present on the R1 SDVD has been effectively addressed. Overall stability has also been improved dramatically. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. Lastly, there are no audio dropouts to report in this review.
