Marketa Lazarová Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Frantisek Vlacil's Marketa Lazarova arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"This digital master was produced from a 4K restoration undertaken by Nadace CEZ, Film Servis Karlovy Vary, the Czech Ministry of Culture, and the National Film Archive and performed by Universal Production Partners and Soundsquare Studios. For the restoration, a scan was created in 4K resolution on a Northlight II film scanner from the original camera negative and a fine-grain positive. The sound was restored from a new positive print made from the original sound negative.

Technical director: Ivo Marak/Universal Production Partners, Prague.
Restoration supervisor: Jiri Cvancara/Universal Production Partners, Prague.
Scanning technician: Jan Zahradnicek/Universal Production Partners, Prague.
Colorist: Pavel Marko/Universal Production Partners, Prague.
Sound restoration: Pavel Rejholec/Soundsquare Studios, Prague."

The presentation of this classic Czech film is enormously impressive. The difference between this new Blu-ray release and Second Run's old R2 DVD release of the film really is like night and day. Detail and especially image depth are quite extraordinary. Close-ups and the larger panoramic shots boast superb contrast without ever looking artificially boosted. There are no traces of problematic degraining corrections - the ultra-fine and evenly resolved grain 4K scans deliver is always easy to spot. Also, there are no problematic sharpening corrections. It is very easy to tell that numerous debris, damage marks and cuts have been carefully removed because the film also looks notably healthy. Finally, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. All in all, I think that anyone who has seen the R2 DVD release of Marketa Lazarova will be enormously pleased with the film's transition to Blu-ray. It looks stunning. (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).


Marketa Lazarová Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: Czech LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

It is also very easy to tell that serious work was done on the audio as well. Depth and clarity are very impressive. On the R2 DVD the singing sounds thin and quite flat while on the Blu-ray it is well rounded and crisper. There is a much better range of nuanced dynamics as well. (If you have the DVD, compare the big battle scene at the end on the two releases). The dialog is exceptionally crisp, always stable, and easy to follow. The English translation is excellent.
