That Obscure Object of Desire

 (1977)

That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Recounted in flashback to a group of railway travellers, the story wryly details the romantic perils of Mathieu, a wealthy middle-aged French sophisticate who falls desperately in love with his 19-year-old former chambermaid Conchita. Thus begins a surreal game of sexual cat-and-mouse, with Mathieu obsessively attempting to win the girl's affections as she manipulates his carnal desires, each vying to gain absolute control of the other. Brimming with a subversive wit, That Obscure Object of Desire takes satiric aim at a decadent, decaying society riddled with political unrest and moral bankruptcy.

For more about That Obscure Object of Desire and the That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray release, see That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Luis Buñuel's That Obscure Object of Desire arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Studio Canal.

Studio Canal's presentation of Buñuel's final film is very similar to their recent presentation of the classic The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie. Generally speaking, detail and clarity are dramatically improved when compared to previous DVD releases of the film (I've done some direct comparisons with the single disc from The Luis Buñuel Collection), while color depth and stability are a lot stronger. Most daylight sequences, in particular, look very good (see screencaptures #2 and 8) - there is good depth and excellent image stability. Sharpness levels are also pleasing, but there are absolutely no traces of overzealous post-production sharpening. There are no traces of excessive degraining either. Unsurprisingly, the film has a stable organic look, which should please viewers who project their films on large screens. This being said, That Obscure Object of Desire has not undergone a meticulous restoration. This isn't to imply that there are serious technical issues with the presentation, but occasionally during frame transitions there are extremely light color shifts, as well as a few sharpness fluctuations (see screencapture #18). Nevertheless, this is a competent presentation of the film that retains its organic qualities very well. For the record, there are no large cuts, damage or burn marks, or stains to report in this review. (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).

Note: The disc's adjustable main menu - the interface can be set in English, French, or German - indicates that this Blu-ray release is also meant to be sold in Germany and France. Naturally, the German and French releases should look identical to the UK release.


That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Studio Canal have provided optional English, German, and French SDH subtitles (with the descriptive text appearing in red) for the main feature.

The original audio is solid. The dialog is crisp, stable and free of distortions. The film does not have a prominent music soundtrack, which is why the overall range of nuanced dynamics is quite limited (even the sound of the passing train and the few gunshots that heard throughout the film are quite modest). However, the sound is well rounded and balance is pleasing. I must mention, however, that some of the actors did post-dubbing, which is why occasionally some of their lines and the audio could be slightly uneven. This is normal. The English translation is very good.
