Orlando

 (1992)

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

Orlando is a youthful English nobleman, a favorite of Queen Elizabeth I, who defies the laws of nature with surprising results. Immortal and highly imaginative, he undergoes a series of extraordinary transformations, including changing from a man to a woman. The transformations illustrate the complexity of the eternal war between the sexes.

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

Starring: Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane, Lothaire Bluteau, John Wood, Charlotte Valandrey, Quentin Crisp
Director: Sally Potter

Orlando Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Sally Potter's Orlando arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Artificial Eye.

The presentation is enormously satisfying. The majority of the film was shot in Russia and Uzbekistan and boasts a very warm dreamy look. Light, in particular, has a very important role. Colors, contrast and clarity also constantly evolve as the story moves through the years. I mention this because it is important to keep in mind that the image fluctuations (contrast and clarity) are not a byproduct of a technical issue of some sort; they are part of the film's unique period look.
There are no traces of excessive denoising/degraining. Unsurprisingly, the film has a very strong and stable organic look This also holds true for the film's appearance in the U.S., where Sony Pictures brought it to Blu-ray in a similarly convincing fashion. In fact, the only difference between the two releases appears to be in the brightness settings - this UK release looks ever so slightly darker. Furthermore, there are absolutely no traces of post-production sharpening corrections. Compression is also very good. The high-definition transfer is also free of large damage marks, cuts, debris and stains. To sum it all up, this is a very solid presentation that is guaranteed to please fans of Orlando who have previously seen or owned it on DVD. The upgrade in quality is indeed quite dramatic. (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).


Orlando Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Artificial Eye have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The improvements in the audio department are also substantial. David Motion and Sally Potter's beautiful ambient soundtrack gets a serious boost, particularly in terms of depth. On the R1 DVD release, the lossy track delivers an uncharacteristically flat and often uneven sound. On the Blu-ray release, the LPCM 2.0 track delivers much improved depth and a very pleasing range of nuanced dynamics. Needless to say, the viewing experience is completely different. The lack of optional English subtitles, however, is somewhat disappointing.
