Querelle Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.36:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Querelle arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French distributors Gaumont.

Generally speaking, all basics are good. The high-definition transfer, which was apparently struck from a newly restored master, offers notable upgrades in terms of definition, contrast stability and color reproduction. Certain sections of the film look quite soft, but they are indeed part of Xaver Schwarzenberger and Josef Vavra's very unique photography -- various light filters and color enhancements are used throughout the entire film to achieve a certain 'dreamy' look (see screencapture #11 and 17). The strong color shifts from yellow to green to brown are also intended. Detail and clarity also have a tendency to fluctuate. For example, virtually all sequences in which Lysiane is present look quite subdued, while sequences with Lieutenant Seblon tend to look sharper. Furthermore, there are no traces of excessive sharpening. However, some extremely light denoising corrections have been applied (they are similar to the ones observed in Captain Fracassa's Journey). Overall, however, the film does have a moderately stable organic look, and both clarity and color reproduction are indeed far more satisfying than those observed on the old R1 DVD release, which Sony Pictures produced quite a few years ago. Viewers with larger screens will also be pleased to know that there isn't even a whiff of macrobloking. However, some light compression artifacts occasionally pop up here and there, as well as some extremely light flicker (upper left corner). There are no larger debris, damage marks, cuts, or stains. All in all, without a shadow of a doubt Gaumont's presentation of Querelle represents a very strong upgrade in quality over the earlier mentioned R1 DVD release, but I feel that there is still some room for improvement. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Querelle Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Gaumont have provided optional French and French SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

The original English track is good. It has a decent range of dynamics and the dialog remains consistently crisp. There are no dropouts or audio distortions to report in this review either. This being said, optional English subtitles would have been a terrific bonus for this release - not only because some of the principal actors have rather thick accents (Franco Nero), but also because there are a couple of small text inserts that are in French. Still, this isn't something that should keep you from picking up Gaumont's Blu-ray release.
