Summer Interlude

 (1951)

Summer Interlude Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The film deals with the innocence of first love and the transition from youth to adulthood, two of the director-screenwriter's favorite themes, and ones that he would revisit in later works. When Marie (Maj-Britt Nilsson), a prima ballerina, receives an old lover's diary after his death in a tragic accident, she begins to reminisce about the happy summer she spent with Henrik (Birger Malmsten), her first love, on an island near Stockholm. A flashback shows the young couple in a playful, carefree light, full of energy and grace. Since parting from Henrik, Maria has emerged as a sucessful dancer with many admirers and a new suitor, the journalist David Nystrom (Alf Kjellin). But she is dissatisfied with her present life and unable to forget the ardent love she experienced that one fateful summer long ago.

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

Starring: Maj-Britt Nilsson, Birger Malmsten, Alf Kjellin, Annalisa Ericson, Mimi Pollak, Georg Funkquist

Summer Interlude Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Ingmar Bergman's Summer Interlude arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

Considering the fact that the original negative for Summer Interlude has been lost and that the new high-definition transfer was struck from a reconstruction of 35mm duplicate negative sources, the final result is indeed very impressive. Most close-ups convey enormously pleasing depth (see scnreecapture #5), while the panoramic vistas from the island boast excellent fluidity (see screencapture #2). Viewers with large screens (100'+) should also be especially pleased with the stability of the image, as there are no warps or shimmer to report in this review. Also, a steady dose of well resolved grain has been retained throughout the entire film. There are only a few selected scenes where inherited softness is noticeable. Furthermore, there are no traces of problematic sharpening corrections or contrast boosting. Problematic banding and aliasing patterns are not visible either. Unsurprisingly, despite the few minor fluctuations noted above, the film does have a very strong organic look. Lastly, I would like to quickly mention that a few small scratches and lines have been retained as current digital tools could not fully remove them (see screencapture #19), but they are indeed incredibly easy to tolerate. (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).


Summer Interlude Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Swedish LPCM 1.0. 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 disc:

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

There are no serious issues to address in the audio department. The lossless audio is stable and provides the film with the depth it needs. The dialog is crisp, clean, and easy to follow. Also, there are no high-frequency distortions or audio dropouts to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
