Pierre Etaix Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted 1080p transfers, the Pierre Etaix films arrive on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion. (Each film, including the shorts, has a progressive transfer).

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

"These new digital masters were made from the 2010 restorations undertaken by Studio 37, the Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage, and the Groupama Gan Foundation for Cinema, under the supervision of director Pierre Etaix.

For the restorations of Rapture, Happy Anniversary, Feeling Good, and The Suitor, the transfers were created in high-definition on a Spirit Datacine from the original 35mm negatives, and the sound was restored from the optical track negatives. The transfer for Yoyo was created in high-definition on a Spirit Datacine from a wet-gate-printed 35mm duplicate negative, and the sound was restored from the optical track negative. For As Long As You've Got Your Health, the transfer was created in high-definition on a Spirit Datacine from the original camera negative and a 35mm duplicate negative, and the sound was restored from the optical track negative. The transfer for Le grand amour was created in 2K resolution on an ARRISCAN film scanner from the original 35mm camera negative and two reels of wet-gate-printed interpositive, and the sound was restored from the 35mm magnetic tracks. And for Land of Milk and Honey, the transfer was created in high-definition on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm blow-up internegative made from the 16mm reversal, while the sound was restored from the optical track negative.

Restorations supervised by: Pierre Etaix.
Restoration coordination: Francois Ede.
Digital restoration: Ronald Boullet, Sebastian Guyot, Charlotte Quemy, Giovanni Zimolo/Eclair Laboratories, France.
Colorist: Bruno Patin, Eclair Laboratories, France.
Photochemical processing: Florence Paulin/LNF, Paris.
Sound restoration: Lionel Risler/Sofreson, Paris."

The screencaptures used with this review appear in the following order:

1. Screencaptures #1-4 are from Rupture
2. Screencaptures #5-9 are from Happy Anniversary
3. Screencaptures #10-19 are from The Suitor
4. Screencaptures #19-23 are from Yoyo
5. Screencaptures #24-29 are from As Long As You've Got Your Health
6. Screencaptures #30-31 are from Feeling Good
7. Screencaptures #32-37 are from Le Grand Amour
8. Screencaptures #38-39 are from Land of Milk and Honey

All of the films in this terrific two-disc set have been sourced from the recent restorations undertaken by French label Studio 37, the Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage, and the Groupama Gan Foundation for Cinema, which were supervised by Pierre Etaix. Generally speaking, these films now look absolutely spectacular, despite the fact that for some the existing elements were apparently in very poor condition. Yoyo, in particular, looks remarkably healthy and vibrant. Image depth and clarity are relatively similar on all of the feature films, though Le Grand Amour has the most consistently pleasing organic look. The first two short films, Rupture and Happy Anniversary, apparently suffered a lot, but after photochemical and digital processing now appear pleasingly stable and vibrant. Overall, grain is typically well resolved and there are no problematic sharpening corrections, though with Rupture grain does appear slightly uneven. The feature films, however, look very strong, boasting excellent fluidity and very stable and natural colors. Finally, there are absolutely no debris, cuts, damage marks, stains, or warps to report in this review. All in all, the quality of the presentations is indeed very good, which is why there is no doubt in my mind that these will likely be the definitive presentations of Pierre Etaix's films. (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).

Pierre Etaix Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are seven standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release. (See listings below). For each film, Criterion have included optional English subtitles. (The intertitles on Yoyo are also subtitled).

1. Rupture: French Dolby Digital 1.0.
2. Happy Anniversary: French Dolby Digital 1.0.
3. The Suitor: French LPCM 1.0.
4. Yoyo: French LPCM 1.0
5. As Long As You've Got Your Health: French LPCM 1.0.
6. Feeling Good: French LPCM 1.0.
7. Le Grand Amour: French LPCM 1.0.
8. Land of Milk and Honey: French LPCM 1.0.

Large portions of Pierre Etaix's films have only random sounds and noises. Most of them are well enhanced and quite effective. Some of the feature films, such as Yoyo and The Suitor, also have lovely music scores, but dynamic movement is quite limited. Generally speaking, the dialog is crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. It is easy to tell that, where needed, various stabilizations have been performed. There is no excessive background hiss or problematic distortions. The English translation is outstanding.
