Sanshô Dayû / Gion Bayashi Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Kenji Mizoguchi's Sanshô Dayû arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Eureka Entertainment.

The screencaptures included with our review appear in the following order:

1. Sanshô Dayû: 1-19.
2. Gion Bayashi: 20-29.

The basic characteristics of the high-definition transfers are very similar to those of the one used for the Blu-ray release of Ugetsu Monogatari. There are a few small flecks and scratches that pop up here and there, but absolutely no trances of problematic lab tinkering. Detail is indeed very pleasing, with the daylight panoramic vistas looking particularly strong (see screencapture #13). Clarity is also good, with the most dramatic improvements noticeable during the dusk/nighttime scenes - the light macroblocking has been eliminated and the black levels further stabilized. Film grain is fairly evenly distributed throughout the entire film, though some of it is mixed with extremely light noise (see screencapture #2). Serious banding and aliasing patterns do not plague the high-definition transfer. Finally, aside from some inherited frame skips, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review.

Gion Bayashi looks slightly softer, but there are large portions of the film/transfer that are surprisingly healthier (there are hardly any flecks or scratches). Contrast levels are stable and clarity pleasing. Once again, there are no traces of problematic lab tinkering. Unsurprisingly, despite some of the source limitations the film boasts strong organic qualities.

(Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Sanshô Dayû / Gion Bayashi Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Japanese DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, for Sanshô Dayû, and Japanese DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, for Gion Bayashi. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for both features.

There is a bit of light background hiss on the lossless track for Sanshô Dayû. However, it is far from distracting, and clarity is actually surprisingly good. Predictably, the overall dynamic amplitude on both lossless tracks is rather limited, but there are no serious compromises; both films simply have very modest sound designs. For the record, there are no audio dropouts or high-frequency distortions to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
