Life Is Sweet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Mike Leigh's Life Is Sweet arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Supervised by director of photography Dick Pope, this new digital transfer was created in 2K resolution on an ARRISCAN film scanner from the original camera negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and jitter were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, noise reduction, and flicker.

Telecine supervisor: Dick Pope, Lee Kline.
Colorist: Stephen Bearman/Deluxe Digital London."

I did not see anything in the presentation that I did not like. From start to finish detail and image depth are outstanding, while clarity is always pleasing. Most close-ups look very sharp and vibrant, even in sequences where light is clearly restricted (see sceencapture #2). Furthermore, there is a wide range of warm but very natural colors. There are absolutely no traces of problematic degraining corrections. Post-production sharpening corrections have not been applied either. Unsurprisingly, the film has a very stable and very convincing organic look. Finally, there are absolutely no damage marks, debris, specs, or warps to report in this review. To sum it up, I think that all fans of Life Is Sweet, as well as director Mike Leigh, are guaranteed to be impressed with the manner in which the film has transitioned to Blu-ray. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Life Is Sweet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The audio has excellent depth and crispness. Overall dynamic movement is somewhat limited, but this has everything to do with the film's original sound design. The dialog is very crisp, well rounded, stable, and free of problematic hiss. Additionally, there are absolutely no pops, cracks, audio dropouts or high-frequency distortions to report in this review.
