Les Visiteurs du Soir

 (1942)

Les Visiteurs du Soir Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

At the end of the 15th century, two minstrels, Gilles and Dominique, come from nowhere into the castle of Baron Hugues. Gilles charms Anne, Hughes' daughter, while Dominique charms both Hugues and Ann's fiancé. Gilles and Dominique are not really in love: they are sent by the Devil to desperate people. But Ann is so pure that Gilles is caught to his own trap.

Les Visiteurs du Soir 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, Marcel Carne's Les visiteurs du soir arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"This new digital transfer was created in 2K resolution on a Spirit 2K Datacine from a 35mm fine-grain inerpositive struck from the original nitrate negative. The restoration of Les Visiteurs du Soir was undertaken by SNC at Scanlab in Paris. Additional image and audio restoration was done by Criterion.

Restoration supervisor: Filmo, Paris.
Colorist: Gilles Grannier/Scanlab, Paris.
Digital restoration of soundtrack: L.E. Diapason, Epinay-sur-Seine, France.
Photochemical restoration of soundtrack: NLF, Vanves, France."

The new restoration of Les Visiteurs du Soir is quite beautiful. From start to finish there is very pleasing depth and clarity. Even the nighttime sequences in the garden where the lovers meet boast very good detail and stable contrast levels. More importantly, however, there are no traces of excessive degraining. Edge-enhancement is also not a serious issue of concern (see how crisp but natural the panoramic shot is in screencapture #2). Color grading does not disappoint either - there is a good range of solid blacks, grays, and whites. This being said, there are a few very small skips where frames are apparently missing, but this should not be something that will distract viewers. A few very small vertical lines also pop up here and there, but overall the restorers have clearly removed as much debris and damage marks as possible without affecting the integrity of the film. To sum it all up, this is a competent, very impressive restoration of Marcel Carne's legendary film which will undoubtedly please its fans. (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).


Les Visiteurs du Soir Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French LPCM, 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

There are no serious technical issues to address in this review. The lossless track has a somewhat limited dynamic amplitude, but this should not be surprising given the age of the film and its original sound design. As far as I am concerned, the restorers have optimized and stabilized the audio as best as possible - and it clearly shows. Balance is very good and there are no sudden drops in dynamic activity or problematic distortions. The English translation is excellent.
