The Barbarian and the Geisha Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Whatever your thoughts on the story, there's no denying that The Barbarian and the Geisha is a beautiful film, with lushly colored Cinemascope photography that strikingly captures the on-location-in-Japan scenery and Toho Studios interior set design. A quick comparison between the Blu-ray and the included DVD shows a clear difference between the high and standard definition versions, most notably in terms of clarity. The 1080p/AVC-encoded image might not be exceptionally sharp by today's standards, but detail is strong in the areas where you normally look for it—facial features, clothing, in-focus props—and overt blurriness only occasionally affects the far edges of the 2.35:1 frame. Most importantly, the transfer seems entirely faithful to source, with a natural-looking grain structure—though a bit chunky at times, especially during fades between scenes—and no signs of edge enhancement, DNR, or any excessive filtering. Color and contrast look appropriate too, with balanced skin tones, decently deep blacks, and a gorgeous palette of distinctly Japanese hues. I'm not sure how much restoration work Fox did on the digital intermediate, but the print itself is in good shape here; you'll only spot infrequent white specks, and no heavy scratches, stains, or tears. No noticeable compression issues either. An all-around faithful, accurate-looking transfer.


The Barbarian and the Geisha Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

20th Century Fox has given The Barbarian and the Geisha a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 4.0 track that's often surprisingly immersive. Of course, dynamically, the mix delivers about what you'd expect from a 1950's film—no real low-end and slightly thin highs—but the response is wonderfully clear and there's an appreciable sense of separation between the four channels. In the rears, you'll often hear carefully placed ambient sounds—lapping waves, crackling flames, tweeting birds—and the effects are suitably potent. It's the music that'll really catch your ear, though. Hugo Friedhofer's orchestral score is large-scale and memorable, if maybe a bit too stereotypically "oriental," with pentatonic scale melodies and clanging percussion. Throughout it all, dialogue is clear and easily understood, and there are no distraction-level pops or crackles. (Though you might notice a low-level tape hiss from time to time.) For those that need or want them, the disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles, along with French and Spanish Dolby Digital mono dubs.
