Le Silence de la Mer

 (1949)

Le Silence de la Mer Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Melville's extraordinary first feature, an adaptation of Vercors' classic novella about the French Resistance, is in effect a triangular drama in which two people don't speak. A German officer, convalescing from a wound, is billeted on an elderly Frenchman and his niece. Respecting their obstinate refusal to address the hated invader, he meets their silence with a series of monologues, apparently ignored, in which he recalls his life before the war and all the things he values; but what he reveals about himself causes the girl to fall in love, without being able to declare her feelings.

For more about Le Silence de la Mer and the Le Silence de la Mer Blu-ray release, see Le Silence de la Mer Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Director: Jean-Pierre Melville
Writers: Vercors, Jean-Pierre Melville
Starring: Howard Vernon (I), Nicole Stéphane, Jean-Marie Robain, Ami Aaröe, Georges Patrix, Denis Sadier

Le Silence de la Mer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Pierre Melville's Le silence de la mer arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

The licensed from Gaumont high-definition transfer is very strong. Most close-ups, for instance, convey outstanding depth and clarity that are missing from Eureka Entertainment's DVD release of the film. Contrast levels are also stabilized and macroblocking patterns eliminated. Color grading is also superior - the variety of whites and grays look stable and natural while the blacks are well saturated but never looking boosted. There are no traces of excessive noise corrections. Naturally, grain is present throughout the entire film and appears properly resolved. There are no traces of post-production sharpening either. The high-definition transfer is also free of aliasing and banding patterns. Finally, aside from a few extremely mild (frame) transition fluctuations, which appear to have been inherited, there are also no stability issues to report in this review. All in all, this is a strong, very competent presentation of Le silence de la mer. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Le Silence de la Mer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

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

Understandably, the French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track has a rather limited dynamic amplitude. The dialog, however, is stable, crisp, and easy to follow. Background hiss is not an issue of concern here, but occasionally its presence can be felt. Edgar Bischoff's score has mostly a complimentary role, which the loseless track highlights well. There are no sync issues, distortions, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
