Madame de...

 (1953)

Madame de... Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

As they find their way from France to Constantinople to France again, a luxurious pair of earrings lie at the heart of a tragic story of deceit and love in 19th-century Paris. The earrings were once given as a gift to Countess Louise de . . . by her husband, a powerful general. Their union is now cold and distant, and she falls madly in love with Donati, an Italian diplomat.

For more about Madame de... and the Madame de... Blu-ray release, see Madame de... Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Madame de... Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Max Ophuls' The Earrings of Madame de... arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French label Gaumont.

Gaumont's high-definition transfer is not identical to the one Criterion used for their Blu-ray release of this very beautiful classic French film. Detail and image depth are clearly superior on Gaumont's release. This is easy to see during daylight panoramic shots and during select indoor shots with plenty of light. (You can compare screencapture #11 with screencapture # 11 from our review of the Criterion release to see exactly what type of improvements are present). Traces of some extremely light noise corrections, however, remain, though none of them are problematic. Contrast levels are stable. Also, there are no traces of compromising sharpening corrections. This being said, while viewing the film I noticed traces of light chroma noise (see screencaptures #3 and #17). The most obvious ones appear during the beach sequence at the end of the film. Additionally, there is an obvious discrepancy between the black/gray settings when one compares the Gaumont release with the Criterion release. In this case, considering the above mentioned traces of light chroma noise, it is clear that Gaumont's high-definition transfer could have been encoded better. Finally, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. Also, there are no large debris, cuts, damage marks, stains, or scratches. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray release. 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).


Madame de... Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

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

Dynamic intensity is limited, but it is obvious that the film's original sound design is fairly modest. Clarity and depth are very good and the dialog is free of hiss, crackle, and pops. The music is well balanced, though the range of nuanced dynamics is small. The English translation is excellent.
