Pierrot le fou Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Luc Godard's Pierrot le fou arrives on Blu-ray courtesy British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment. Please note that in addition to English the main menu could be set in one of the following languages: Danish, German, Spanish, French, Dutch, Norwegian, Portuguese, Finnish, Swedish, and Japanese.

The following text appears before the film begins:

"This film was restored by Studio Canal and Cinematheque Francaise with the support of the Franco-American Cultural Fund. Pierrot le fou was shot in Techniscope on Eastmancolor emulsion. Techniscope was often used at the time, notably for reasons of economy, because the image only took up two perforations per photogramme. The dupe-positive, also printed Techniscope, is lost. As for the negative, it had become unusable and was destroyed in 1990. A new internegative element was made on reversible film stock, with an anamorphic image on four frames, which is still used to make prints today. However, this element doesn't reflect the qualities of the original work, particularly in terms of the colormetrics. The restoration resides entirely in the making of a new negative from the digitisation in 2K of the camera negative, which has the original colors of Eastmancolor. As for the sound, the original magnetic elements disappeared, a new negative was made from a positive of the period, respecting the original mono format."

As most of you who are interested in this film probably know by now, the transfer Criterion used for their Blu-ray release of Pierrot le fou in the United States was approved by cinematographer Raoul Coutard. The transfer used for this Blu-ray release, which as I understand is the same transfer French distributors Studio Canal have provided to different distributors throughout Europe (Kinowelt Home Entertainment in Germany, Optimum Home Entertainment in the UK, etc), isn't.

There are key scenes in the film that reveal entirely different color-schemes. On the Criterion release the party scene where Pierrot meets the American producer is entirely in green; on the Optimum Home Entertainment's release, this scene lacks the heavy green tint. Additionally, the reds and blues are slightly stronger here, while grays appear more prominent on the Criterion release.

Generally speaking, fine object detail and clarity are very good. Contrast levels are also convincing. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not a serious issue of concern either. I did notice, however, a couple of scenes where some extremely mild halo effects were present. Blown through a digital projector, this high-definition transfer looks just as solid as Criterion's. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing scratches, debris, cuts, or splices to report in this review. All in all, even though the restored transfer for this Blu-ray release of Pierrot le fou does not have cinematographer Raoul Coutard's stamp of approval, and, obviously, there are some color discrepancies with the one he approved for Criterion's release, I still think that it looks very strong. (Note: This Blu-ray disc is coded for Regions A and B. Therefore, you must have a native Region A or B, or Region-Free, PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Pierrot le fou Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are four audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Japanese, Norwegian, and Swedish subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar bellow it.

The French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 is solid. The dialog is clean, stable and very easy to follow. There are no balance issues with Antoine Duhamel's music score either. I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or heavy hissings to report in this review. All in all, I think that the audio treatment is as good as it could possibly be.
