Senso Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Luchino Visconti's Senso arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Bu-ray disc:

"Working under the auspices of the Film Foundation, L'Immagine Ritrovata at the Cineteca di Bologna created this new digital restoration of Senso from the original 3-strip Technicolor camera negatives and the film's surviving master positives. The original 3-strip negatives had suffered extreme shrinkage and decay and, as a result, could no longer be properly aligned, a defect that had been impossible to fix when the film was previously restored by photochemical means. By scanning each of the three negatives separately on an ARRISCAN Film Scanner in 2K resolution and aligning the images digitally, the restorers were able to correct the registration problems that had plagued the film for decades. The resulting images were then color corrected in consultation with cinematographer Giuseppe Rotunno and Martin Scorsese. The key references for color correction were a 1954 positive print as well as a print created from a 2001 photochemical restoration. Finally, DaVinci's Revival system was used to improve frame steadiness, reduce flickering, and manually eliminate thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and jitter.

Film restoration: Studio Canal, Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia/Cineteca Nazionale, Cineteca di Bologna/L'Immagine Ritrovata. With funding provided by Gucci, the Film Foundation, and Comitato Italia 150.

Telecine colorist: Giandomenico Zeppa/L'Immagine Ritrovata, Bologna, Italy."

I am incredibly pleased with the presentation. Anyone who has seen the Cristaldi Film/Dolmen Home Video R2 Italian SDVD release of Senso would immediately be able to recognize the massive upgrade in quality Criterion's Blu-ray release represents. Considering the various inherited limitations, fine object detail is remarkably strong, clarity very pleasing (even during the problematic nighttime scenes), and contrast levels well balanced. The color-scheme is also dramatically improved - the various color pulsations present on the SDVD release have been effectively addressed, and with the exception of the execution scene at the end of the film, colors are also better balanced. Film grain is well resolved. Finally, there are no serious stability issues. I also did not see any problematic large cuts, damage marks, or stains to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Senso Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Italian LPCM 1.0 (with portions of German). 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 disc:

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from a 35mm positive print made from the original soundtrack negative. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using Audio Cube's integrated workstation."

The restoration efforts have produced great results here as well - stability is restored and balance greatly improved. The dialog is crisp, clean, and easy to follow, and there are no audio dropouts to report in this review. The English translation is very good.
