Le Quai Des Brumes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Marcel Carne's Le Quai Des Brumes arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Studio Canal.

The following information was provided by the producers of this Blu-ray release:

"Quai des Brumes had a difficult start in life. Adapted from the Pierre MacOrlan (one of Pierre Dumarchais' many pen names) novel by Jacques Prevert, the script was vetted by the army before shooting began. The film was then cut by producer Gregor Rabinovitch who asked Marcel Carne to remove everything that was "dirty". When war was declared in September 1939, the film was banned because it was judged "immoral, depressing and distressing for young people". However, the Comite d'Organisation de l'Idustrie Cinematographique, created in August 1940, allowed the film's re-release in January 1941.

So this film, that had been so highly praised by the public on its release in May 1938, was re-worked several times. The original negative is incomplete but, fortunately, a preservation copy made in 1938 meant it was possible to create a version closer to the edit done by Marcel Carne before the film's theatrical release.

Restoring the film involved cleaning up the original negative and making a new preservation copy, which was scanned in 2K and completed using the 1938 print. The grading was done using the original version."

Studio Canal's restoration and reconstruction efforts have produced what is undoubtedly going to be the definitive version of Le Quai Des Brumes. This new and complete presentation of the film eliminates a number of issues from previous releases of the film and fills various small gaps. At the same time it also rebalances the film's color scheme and contrast levels (though a few of the inserts from the 1938 print are still easy to identify).
Generally speaking, detail and image depth are very good. Where light isn't restricted, most close-ups convey very pleasing depth (see screencapture #9). In the panoramic shots clarity is also improved. More importantly, the nighttime sequences, where the fog fills up the screen, no longer look flat - the film now has a very pleasing organic look and the variety of grays are greatly improved. Additionally, the fine grain has been retained, and for the most part it is surprisingly well resolved. On the other hand, there are absolutely no traces of overzealous sharpening. There are a few frames that are missing, as well as a few uneven transitions, but overall the film looks solid and notably healthy. For the record, there are no problematic large cuts, debris, edge stains, and marks. To sum it all up, Studio Canal have literally given this most beautiful film a new life. Clearly, it has never looked this good before. (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).

Note: The disc's adjustable main menu - the interface can be set in English, French, or German - indicates that this Blu-ray release is also meant to be sold in Germany and France. Naturally, the German and French releases should look identical to the UK release.


Le Quai Des Brumes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Studio Canal have provided optional English, German, and French SDH subtitles (with the descriptive text appearing in red) for the main feature.

The audio restoration and reconstruction work is just as impressive. The restorers have thoroughly cleaned up the audio and made sure that there are no transition gaps between the footage from the original negative and the inserts from the 1935 print. The audio has also been rebalanced. Unsurprisingly, there are no sudden audio dropouts or spikes. Maurice Jaubert's beautiful score has also benefited tremendously - the music now gradually enters and then exits key sequences. The dialog is crisp, clean, and easy to follow. The English translation is very good.
