Rosetta

 (1999)

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

Rosetta is a 17-year-old Italian girl who lives in a trailer park on the outskirts of the Belgian town of Seraing. Drowning in poverty and neglect, she is driven by a need that quickly becomes her singular obsession: securing a steady job and a normal life, but her single-mindedness may lead her to make a choice that she may not be prepared to accept.

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

Directors: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne
Writers: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne
Starring: Émilie Dequenne, Fabrizio Rongione, Anne Yernaux, Olivier Gourmet, Bernard Marbaix, Frédéric Bodson

Rosetta Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's Rosetta arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"Supervised by director of photography Alain Marcoen, this new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 2K Datacine from a 35mm blowup interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean.

Transfer supervisors: Lee Kline, Alain Marcoen.
Colorist: Giovanni Zimolo/Eclair, Paris."

The majority of the film looks quite soft. Considering the fact that it was shot in Super 16 this should not be surprising, but there is also light noise that further affects definition and clarity. Where light is restricted, the softness also affects color depth, and black levels in particular. The good news here is that there are no traces of post-production sharpening and contrast boosting. Naturally, the film still has the organic look it ought to have, but it is obvious that the blowup interpositive that was used to create the new high-definition transfer had some limitations. There are no serious stability issues. Scratches, cuts, debris, and warps are also nowhere to be seen. All in all, the Blu-ray release clearly represents an upgrade in quality over previous DVD releases of the film, but I feel that the technical presentation could have been even more convincing. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you mist have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Rosetta Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

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

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"The original 2.0 surround soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the 35mm magnetic tracks. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

Like the overwhelming majority of the films the Dardennes have directed, Rosetta has a very modest sound design. Unsurprisingly, there is a limited range of dynamics. The dialog, however, is very crisp, clean, and stable. The film does not have a prominent soundtrack. Naturally, there are no balance issues either. Lastly, there are no dropouts or problematic audio distortions to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
