Le Havre Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Aki Kaurismaki's Le Havre arrive son Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Approved by director Aki Kaurismaki, this new high-definition digital transfer was created on an ARRISCAN film scanner from the 35mm interpositive. Minor scratches and dust were removed using Image Systems' Nucoda and Autodesk's Flame.

Colorist: Mathilde Delacroix/Eclair Laboratoires, Paris.
Blu-ray mastering: Radius60, Los Angeles."

The film has a beautiful organic look. Almost without exception close-ups boast outstanding depth, with a select few looking virtually flawless (see screencapture #15). The larger panoramic shots convey excellent clarity and contrast balance (see screencapture #14). Color reproduction is also very effective, especially during the nighttime footage (shadows and colors have a unique relationship and typically play an important role in the films of director Kaurismaki). There are absolutely no traces of edge-enhancement or problematic degraining corrections. Banding or aliasing patterns do not plague the high-definition transfer either. There is only one sequence where I noticed a bit of light flicker in the upper right corner of the frame, but this is hardly something that should bother you. Finally, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. To sum it all up, Criterion's presentation of Le Havre is very impressive, on par with some of the best releases we have seen from the studio this year. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Le Havre Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The film features a fully digital 5.1 surround soundtrack. The audio for this release was mastered at 24-bit from the original audio master files using Pro Tools HD."

The sound is crisp and very rich. During the concert the music is well rounded and boasting excellent depth. Elsewhere, there are unique audio enhancements that also make an impression. The overall dynamic amplitude is as good as it could be for a film directed by Aki Kaurismaki (do not expect sudden spikes in dynamic movement). Lastly, there are no problematic pops, distortions, or audio dropouts to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
