Puberty Blues

 (1981)

Puberty Blues Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Adapted from the popular novel by Gabrielle Carey and Kathy Lette, Puberty Blues traces the lives of two adolescent females who have spent the first part of their lives in a group by themselves, while desperately trying to break into the 'in-crowd' who dominate the Greenhill beach. Once accepted into the group, they realise the laid-back, ultra-cool facade is just that: a glossy cover-up. As Debbie (Nell Schofield) and her life-long companion Sue (Jad Capelja) are drawn into the group's many vices, including drug-usage and casual sex, they begin to realise there might be more to life and set out to regain respect and equality. Directed by Bruce Beresford (Mao's Last Dancer, Driving Miss Daisy), Puberty Blues dives deep into the 80s Australian social landscape and delivers a classic coming of age tale.

For more about Puberty Blues and the Puberty Blues Blu-ray release, see Puberty Blues Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Nell Schofield, Jad Capelja, Geoff Rhoe, Tony Hughes, Sandy Paul, Jay Hackett

Puberty Blues Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.40:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080/50i transfer, Bruce Beresford's Puberty Blues arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Australian distributors Umbrella Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer is encoded in 1080/50i, but it actually contains progressive frames. This means that there is absolutely no motion-judder whatsoever. To be clear, this is essentially a solid progressive transfer "locked" inside a 1080/50i encode.

Despite the fact that the high-definition transfer has been struck from an older master, detail and clarity are consistently pleasing. Close-ups as well as larger panoramic shots also convey good depth (see screencaptures #1, 2 and 5). Color reproduction is also satisfying, though during a few darker sequences some of the blacks appear slightly crushed. The best news, however, is that there are absolutely no traces of excessive degraining corrections. Sharpening adjustments have not been performed either. Needless to say, the film has a pleasing organic look. Lastly, there are some tiny specks that occasionally pop up (see screencapture #11), but no serious damage marks, large debris, cuts, or warps to report in this review. All in all, I actually like the presentation quite a lot. If a brand new master isn't available, this is how older films should be presented on Blu-ray - raw and free of problematic digital corrections. (Note: The disc is encoded for Regions A, B, and C, but because the high-definition transfer is in 1080/50i, which isn't standardized in North America, the release will be logged in our database as Region-B "locked").


Puberty Blues Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Umbrella Entertainment have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track has a surprisingly good range of nuanced dynamics. The dialog is also consistently crisp, stable, and free of background hiss. I must say, however, that this release would have greatly benefited from the inclusion of optional English SDH subtitles because some of the accents in the film are indeed quite thick. There are also a number of unique one-liners.
