Maitresse Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Barbet Schroeder's Maitresse arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of the British Film Institute.

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

"The film was transfered in High-Definition from the original 35mm interpositive. The audio was transfered from the original magnetic tracks. The picture was restored using HD-DVNR and MTI restoration systems, removing dirt, scratches and debris, repairing damaged frames and improving stability issues. Audio issues such as pops, crackle, and noise/hiss were also improved. The new transfer was supervised and approved by director Barbet Schroeder.

Technical Producer: James White (BFI).
Technical Assistant: Douglas Weir (BFI).
Telecine Colorist: Fabien Napoli (Scanlab, Paris).
Picture Grading: Stephen Bearman (Deluxe Digital, London).
Picture Restoration: Clayton Baker, David Burt, Tom Wiltshire (Deluxe Digital, London). "

The presentation is everything I hoped it would be - a dramatic upgrade in quality over Criterion's R1 DVD release of the film. (I don't have a R2 DVD release of the film in my library and cannot comment on how it compares). Detail and clarity are wonderful. The footage from inside the chamber, for instance, now has plenty of depth, and definition is so much better. The low noise from the DVD release is also nowhere to be seen. Contrast levels are also stable. There are various adjustments in the film's color-scheme as well. It appears that some of the light greens and blues have been elevated. The blacks are better saturated. Furthermore, there are no traces of excessive degraining. Problematic sharpening corrections have not been performed either. Generally speaking, grain is mostly well resolved and evenly distributed. There are no large damage marks, cuts, debris, or warps. This being said, compression could have been even better (see screencapture #14) to avoid light artifacts. Still, I am convinced that anyone who has seen Maitresse on DVD will be tremendously satisfied with the film's transition to Blu-ray. I most certainly am. (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).


Maitresse Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French LPCM 2.0. For the record, the BFI have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The audio treatment is as pleasing as the video treatment. One could immediately tell that depth and stability are improved, while any background hiss that might have been present was removed. Carlos D'Alessio's soundtrack does not have a prominent role in the film. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow. The English translation is very good.
