Plein soleil

 (1960)

Plein soleil Blu-ray features mediocre video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Tom Ripley is sent to Europe by Mr. Greenleaf to fetch his spoiled, playboy son, Philippe, and bring him back home to the States. In return, Tom will receive $5,000. Philippe toys with Tom, pretending he will go back home, but has no intentions of leaving his bride to be, Marge, and honoring his father's wishes. After some time passes, Mr. Greenleaf considers the mission a failure and cuts Tom off. Tom, in desperation, kills Philippe, assumes his identity, and lives the life of a rich playboy. However, he will need all his conman abilities to keep Philippe's friends and the police off the trail.

Plein soleil Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Rene Clement's Purple Noon arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of StudioCanal.

The presentation is disappointing. Unlike Criterion's recent Blu-ray release of Mr. Clement's classic film which uses a high-definition transfer that was created in 2K resolution from the original camera negative, StudioCanal's release uses as a foundation a new 4K restoration. Unfortunately, this new French release is vastly inferior to Criterion's release.

Traces of moderate to very heavy filtering corrections are easy to see throughout the entire film. Unsurprisingly, detail and especially image depth often suffer a lot. There are sequences where shadow definition and contrast are also very problematic (see screencapture #10). The filtering corrections have also destabilized the film's color-scheme. The blacks, in particular, are often replaced by large blocks of gray (see screencapture #12). The ultra-fine grain which high-quality 4K scans typically produce is also lost (compare screencapture #3 with screencapture #6 from our review of the Criterion release). The only good news is that the film looks remarkably healthy - there are absolutely no debris, cuts, damage marks, stains, or scratches. All in all, it is very unfortunate that a decision was made to filter the high-definition transfer because even with the applied corrections it is very easy to see that the 4K restoration was excellent. StudioCanal's Blu-ray release of Purple Noon could have been a special one. Instead, it is an enormously frustrating one. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Plein soleil Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, StudioCanal have provided optional French SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is as impressive as the LPCM 1.0 track provided on Criterion's release of Purple Noon. Depth is very good and there is also a nice range of nuanced dynamics. Nino Rota's soundtrack, in particular, benefits a lot from the enhanced dynamics. The dialog is exceptionally crisp, clean, and easy to follow.
