Pale Flower Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Masahiro Shinoda's Pale Flower arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

This is a gorgeous high-definition transfer, and surprisingly healthy. Despite the fact that the majority of the film takes place at night and in various gambling parlors and clubs where light is not always in abundance, fine object detail and clarity are indeed very impressive. Contrast levels are also consistent thought the entire film, while color reproduction, as at least partially evident from our screencaptures, is beyond satisfying - the deep blacks, lush grays and gentle whites look wonderful. Edge-enhancement is never an issue of concern; neither is macroblocking. I also did not see any traces of heavy noise reduction. Naturally, the film's grain structure is appears intact. Aside from a few inherited frame skips, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. Also, I did not see any annoying large cuts, damage marks, stains, or debris. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Pale Flower Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Japanese LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

Pale Flower has a very unique soundtrack, courtesy of legendary Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu, which blends traditional Japanese folk tunes with various atonal themes. The loseless audio track treats it wonderfully, allowing for plenty of depth and nuanced dynamics. The dialog is clean, crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. Also, I did not detect any problematic pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
