In World War II, the widow Barny sees the Italian soldiers arriving in occupied Saint Bernard while walking to her job. Barny lives with her daughter and works correcting tests and feels a great attraction toward her boss Sabine. When the Germans arrive, Barny sends her half-Jewish daughter to live in a farm in the countryside and finds that Sabine's brother has been arrested and sent to a concentration camp.

Léon Morin, Priest Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Pierre Melville's Leon Morin, Priest arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"This new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 4K Datacine from a 35mm fine-grain master positive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Lee Kline.
Telecine colorist: Gilles Granier/Scanlab, Paris."

Detail and clarity are excellent -- during close-ups the image conveys tremendous depth (see screencapture #11), while the outdoor scenes are never plagued by blocky artifacts. Contrast levels are also convincing. Furthermore, color reproduction is practically flawless -- there is a wide range of blacks, grays and whites that look notably fresh and natural. There are no traces of overzealous sharpening. Though some noise corrections have been performed, the integrity of the image is very much intact, and a layer of light grain is present throughout the entire film. There are no serious stability issues. Large damage marks, cuts, warps, or stains do not plague the high-definition transfer either. (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).


Léon Morin, Priest Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French LPCM 1.0 (with portions of English and German). 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 original monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from a 35mm optical print. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum, were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

The French LPCM 1.0 track is excellent. Martial Solal's music score gets a decent boost, but it is the crisp and clean dialog that impresses the most. There are absolutely no distortions, cracks, excessive hiss, or audio dropouts. Finally, the English translation is excellent.
