Police

 (1985)

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

Mangin, a cop whose brutal method of investigation finds its obsessive outlet in an attempt to crack a Tunisian narcotics ring. It is when Mangin enters into close acquaintance with the defiant Noria that the film proceeds to chart an unexpected, emotionally ambiguous course — and the lines between ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, and ‘power’ and ‘freedom’, terminally blur.

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

Starring: Gérard Depardieu, Sophie Marceau, Richard Anconina
Director: Maurice Pialat

Police Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Maurice Pialat's Police arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French label Gaumont.

I could not be any more pleased with the high-definition transfer. Aside from some light compression artifacts the presentation is indeed very good - there are no traces of excessive denoising and sharpening corrections, while color reproduction is dramatically improved. Where light is restricted shadow definition is also very good. I did some direct comparisons with my R2 DVD release, which also revealed superior image depth - the softness and burliness from the DVD release are eliminated and all sorts of different fine details are now exposed (take a look at the man's jacket in screencapture #6). Finally, there are absolutely no serious stability issues to report in this review. To sum it all up, Gaumont's Blu-ray release of Police represents a very strong upgrade in quality over previous releases of the film that is guaranteed to please folks that appreciate beautiful organic presentations of older films. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray release. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Police Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0. For the record, Gaumont have provided optional English and French SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Police does not have a prominent music score. Only at the end of the film there is beautiful ambient music theme that comes up for a couple of minutes. Nevertheless, the lossless track has a surprisingly good dynamic amplitude. The dialog is exceptionally crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. There are no serious anomalies, such as high-frequency distortions or audio dropouts, to report in this review. The English translation is very good.
