Romance

Nanook of the North / The Wedding of Palo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.37:1. encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Robert J. Flaherty's Nanook of the North arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Flicker Alley.

Please note that the screencaptures used in this review appear in the following order:

1. Screencaptures 1-17 are from Nanook of the North.
2. Screencaptures 18-30 are from The Wedding of Palo.

Mastered in high-definition from a fine grain master of David Shepard's 1972 restoration, Nanook of the North looks pleasing on Blu-ray. Understandably, there are various inherited clarity and detail fluctuations, but different image optimizations have been performed by Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange of Lobster Films (one of the parties behind the fabulous restoration of Georges Melies' legendary A Trip to the Moon) and now the film can be experienced as best as possible. Despite some wear, many close-ups for instance boast very good depth for a film shot under some quite unusual circumstances (see screencapture #2). At times even very small objects can be clearly seen (see screencapture #11). Elsewhere, wider panoramic shots also boast surprisingly good clarity (see screencaptures #3 and 17). The most obvious image fluctuations are typically noticeable where light is either subdued or overexposed. In these shots shadow definition is affected. But there are specific shots where the effect is indeed inherited, as this is how the footage was filmed (see screencapture #14). It also needs to be said that portions of the film come from different sources, such as repair shots, which are taken from different nitrate prints. Naturally, occasionally there are frame transition issues as well. Ultimately, however, the restorers have managed to put together a very solid, very organic looking presentation of this legendary documentary film that should please its fans. (Nanook of the North runs at approximately 79 minutes, which is the original running time noted in the first reviews of the film).

Also included on this two-disc set is Knud Rasmussen and Friedrich Dalsheim's The Wedding of Palo (1934). The film was apparently mastered in high-definition from a nitrate print made in 1937 and now in the collection of George Eastman House. Slightly windowboxed, The Wedding of Palo shows a bit more wear around the edges and more prominent contrast fluctuations. Shadow definition, however, is marginally better. Again, there are portions of the film where detail and clarity fluctuate, but there are no traces of excessive digital manipulations. Debris, scratches, and damage marks were removed as best as possible by Bret Hampton.

(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).


Nanook of the North / The Wedding of Palo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Nanook of the North and The Wedding of Palo arrives with Dolby Digital 2.0. tracks. Each film also contains original intertitles.

I can't say that I am disappointed by the fact that lossless tracks are not offered. Timothy Brock's score has pleasing depth and dynamic movement is as good as I expected it to be. On both tracks, however, there is light hiss. It is far from distracting, but its presence is certainly felt when one turns up the volume. A few minor pops can also be heard. On The Wedding of Palo the dialog is relatively stable. A few light distortions in the strings (typically the high frequencies) are present.
