Loulou

 (1980)

Loulou Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Pialat�s portrait of contemporary France mocks prosperity as a substitute for social and sexual revolution. Isabelle Huppert abandons her bourgeois friends and a steady relationship for the unemployed layabout Depardieu.

For more about Loulou and the Loulou Blu-ray release, see Loulou Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Isabelle Huppert, Gérard Depardieu, Guy Marchand
Director: Maurice Pialat

Loulou Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Maurice Pialat's Loulou arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Gaumont.

The latest batch of Gaumont titles, all films directed by Maurice Pialat, gives me hope that in 2013 we will once again start seeing the quality releases we had come to expect from the French studio. I have already looked at all three films and their presentations are indeed far better than those of the recently reviewed Bande à part and Antoine et Antoinette. I sincerely hope that I am right, because the overwhelming majority of the Blu-ray releases we get from Gaumont will likely be the last home video releases for many films.

The overwhelming majority of the close-ups boast very good detail and pleasing depth (see screencaptures #1-4). Clarity is also pleasing, but there are portions of the film where natural light is restricted and shadow definition has a tendency to fluctuate. Contrast levels are stable. Generally speaking, color reproduction is good - there are stable warm blues, browns, greens, and grays. Degraining is not a serious issue of concern here, but some extremely light corrections have been applied (and quite possibly when the new master for the film was prepared). Overall, however, this release comes quite close to matching the quality of the excellent Cousin cousine. Finally, I noticed some light compression artifacts (see the Guy Marchand's coat in the bottom right corner in screencapture #2). None of them, however, become distracting. All in all, the Blu-ray release of Loulou represents a dramatic upgrade in quality over the out of print R1 DVD release of the film, which New Yorker Video produced back in 2004. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Loulou Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0. For the record, Gaumont have provided optional English and French SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is excellent. The dialog is exceptionally, crisp, crystal clear, and easy to follow. There is a surprisingly good range of nuanced dynamics as well, though you should not expect the richness and intensity lossless tracks deliver with modern films. The English translation is very good, but I noticed a couple of spelling errors.
