Le beau Serge Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

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

The release uses as a foundation Gaumont's recent restoration of Le beau Serge. This leads me to believe that Eureka Entertainment's release looks identical to the French release. I also did some comparisons with Criterion's release, whose high-definition transfer was also sourced from the Gaumont restoration, but could not see any serious discrepancies to address in our review. Similar to Les Cousins, Le beau Serge looks very good in high-definition. Detail and especially image depth are quite impressive. Clarity and contrast levels are also consistent. Close-ups and larger panoramic shots are equally stable and boasting good fluidity (see screencapture #6). There are no traces of excessive degraining corrections. Problematic sharpening corrections have not been applied either, but I suspect that the black levels might have been slightly elevated during the restoration of the film. On this release I also noticed some light chroma noise. It is not distracting, but while viewing the film I noticed its presence during two short sequences (I've attempted to capture the most obvious example in screencapture #15). Other than that, I think that the technical presentation is indeed very good. (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 beau Serge Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

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

The soundtrack by Émile Delpierre is simple but very effective. The strings and the flute constantly interact, adding plenty of flavor to the film. There are even some great pizzicati and bassoon solos. Fortunately, the strong lossless track exposes the modest dynamic movement in the film very well. The dialog is also stable, very clean, and exceptionally easy to follow. Also, there are no audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review. The English translation is very good.
