That Obscure Object of Desire

 (1977)

That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent 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 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Carole Bouquet, Fernando Rey, Angela Molina

That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

That Obscure Object of Desire is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Studio Canal and Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.67:1. This appears to be the same transfer that was released in Britain last year. The elements herr are in surprisingly good condition, with nary a scratch or blemish dotting the proceedings. The image is often startlingly clear and well defined though admittedly there isn't the eye popping fine detail that informs many high definition presentations. The most niggling concern here may well be the slightly pallid palette, though it's actually quite accurate to the original look of the film. There are also slight density issues and registration differences which are noticeable but not extremely distracting. Overall, this is a very nice looking transfer that retains a nicely filmlike appearance without any egregious digital tweaking of any kind.


That Obscure Object of Desire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

That Obscure Object of Desire features lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mixes in both the original French as well as an English dub. The English dub is noticeably less aggressive and more boxy sounding than the French track, so even those who prefer not to read subtitles will probably want to stick with the original language. This is not an overly dynamic track, and it's obvious that quite a bit of the film was post-looped, leading to occasional synchronization issues, but dialogue remains very clearly and cleanly presented. The track is quite narrow, and dynamic range is also fairly limited, though there are occasional gunshots and a couple of explosions courtesy of the terrorists.
