Les vacances de M. Hulot

 (1953)

Les vacances de M. Hulot Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

As with Jour de fête, the film is set in a sleepy French coastal resort which is seasonally disrupted by holidaymakers in energetic pursuit of fun. At the centre of the chaos is the eccentric Hulot, struggling at all times to maintain appearances, but somehow entirely divorced from his immediate surroundings. A beautifully orchestrated ballet of comic action with a series of incidents, a seamless succession of gently mocking studies of human absurdity.

For more about Les vacances de M. Hulot and the Les vacances de M. Hulot Blu-ray release, see Les vacances de M. Hulot Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jacques Tati, Nathalie Pascaud, Louis Perrault, Lucien Frégis, Raymond Carl, Micheline Rolla
Director: Jacques Tati

Les vacances de M. Hulot Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jacques Tati's Les vacances de M. Hulot arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of the BFI.

The following texts appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc, and on-screen before the restored version of Les vacances de M. Hulot begins:

"This film has been restored by La Fondation Groupama Gan pou le Cinema, Les Films de Mon Oncle, La Fondation Thomson pour le Patrimoine du Cinema et de la Television, and La Cinematheque francaise.

The original elements (for Les vacances de M. Hulot) were damaged and weakened by the repeated re-editing process, as well as by numerous changes performed by the director. The restoration project undertaken in 2009 is based on the last version that Jacques Tati edited in 1978. You are about to discover the last version, the one the director intended.

Thanks to photochemical process and digital tools, the original image quality of the picture and the richness of the sound have been successfully recreated. Mr. Hulot can not get back on the road and resume his act."

This truly is a wonderful high-definition transfer -- fine object detail is outstanding, clarity dramatically improved, and contrast levels remarkably consistent. The color scheme does not disappoint either; the variety of whites, grays, and blacks look exceptionally fresh. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are never an issue of concern. I did not see any traces of heavy noise reduction either -- the fine film grain is certainly intact and well resolved. Stability has also been greatly improved. I also did not see any annoying flecks, large scratches, cuts, debris, or stains to report in this review. Indeed, this is a wonderful release, arguably one of the very best in BFI's catalog. (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).


Les vacances de M. Hulot Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French LPCM 2.0 and International Dolby Digital 2.0, which appears in our database as English Dolby Digital 2.0. For the record, the BFI have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The French LPCM 2.0 track is very strong. Understandably, it has a very limited dynamic amplitude, but the little dialog that there is in the film is crisp, clean, stable, and very easy to follow. There are no balance issues with Alain Romans' lovely music score either. Lastly, while viewing the film I did not detect any annoying pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
