M

 (1931)

M Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A simple, haunting musical phrase whistled offscreen tells us that a young girl will be killed. “Who Is the Murderer?” pleads a nearby placard as serial killer Hans Beckert, closes in on little Elsie Beckmann. In his harrowing masterwork M, Fritz Lang merges trenchant social commentary with chilling suspense, creating a panorama of private madness and public hysteria that to this day remains the blueprint for the psychological thriller.

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

Starring: Peter Lorre, Ellen Widmann, Inge Landgut, Otto Wernicke, Theodor Loos, Gustaf Gründgens
Director: Fritz Lang

M Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.19:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Fritz Lang's M arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"This high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm fine-grain print made from the restoration negative, which was produced in 2000 by the Netherlands Film Museum, in collaboration with the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv, the Cinematheque suisse, KirchMedia, and ZDF/ARTE, with funding from the Mondriaan Foundation.

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's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction."

This is a strong high-definition transfer, one that would definitely impress those of you who already own or have seen Criterion's SDVD release of M. Fine object detail is very impressive, though, admittedly it fluctuates during different parts of the film. Clarity and contrast levels are also convincing. Obviously, however, there are certain limitations with the transfer that have been inherited from the 35mm fine-grain print, such as scratches, dirt, small cuts, and flecks. The grain structure is intact. Many of the close-ups, for example, look terrific. Additionally, the color-scheme is a lot more convincing than I expected it to be. Finally, blown through a digital projector, the film looks quite impressive. To sum it all up, this is a very strong presentation of a classic film that certainly belongs in every serious film aficionado's library. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray dsic. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


M Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc for the German version of Fritz Lang's M: German LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

According to the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc, the soundtrack was mastered at 24-bit from the original optical soundtrack prints and negatives. As a result, stability is been greatly improved. Generally speaking, the dialog is very easy to follow. There is some inherited mild background noise, but overall I cannot possibly imagine anyone not being satisfied the German LPCM 1.0 track. As expected, the English translation is very strong.
