The Bird With the Crystal Plumage

 (1970)

The Bird With the Crystal Plumage Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

In his first film as writer/director, Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA, DEEP RED, TWO EVIL EYES) single-handedly created the giallo genre and instantly emerged as the filmmaker critics worldwide hailed as ‘The Italian Hitchcock.’ Tony Musante (TRAFFIC, WE OWN THE NIGHT) and Suzy Kendall (CIRCUS OF FEAR, TORSO) star in this pulse-pounding suspense thriller about an American writer in Rome who witnesses – and is helpless to stop – a brutal assault, the cunning vengeance of a maniac, and the heart-stopping horror that lives – and kills – deep in the dark.

For more about The Bird With the Crystal Plumage and the The Bird With the Crystal Plumage Blu-ray release, see the The Bird With the Crystal Plumage Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Tony Musante, Suzy Kendall, Eva Renzi, Enrico Maria Salerno, Mario Adorf, Renato Romano

The Bird With the Crystal Plumage Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Bird With the Crystal Plumage arrives on Blu-ray with fine results. This 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer will not become the next go-to demo disc, but it does feature the film looking about as good as it's ever likely to. Detail is rather strong throughout, and colors are stable, though reds seem to stand out as a bit more pronounced than anything else on the palette. There are many locales seen throughout the movie that offer viewers the opportunity to see plenty of fascinating textures and objects, ranging from an antique store to Sam's apartment with its brick walls, plaid wallpaper and table cloths, and antiquated furniture and appliances. Each locale, and the objects in them, is colorful and nicely detailed. Foggy and other dark scenes are handled well by the disc with no pixelation and only a slight bit of noise. Grain is rather heavy throughout the picture, and viewers will note several speckles scattered about the image. Blacks are deep and inky and flesh tones stable. The Bird With the Crystal Plumage enjoys something of a classic look and feel, and its intended appearance is nicely replicated on this Blu-ray release from Blue Underground.


The Bird With the Crystal Plumage Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Bird With the Crystal Plumage features a myriad of audio options, including a pair of English 7.1 lossless soundtracks and two Dolby Digital 5.1 EX tracks, one each in English and Italian. The DTS HD MA and Dolby TrueHD offerings feature no discernible differences compared one to the other, but the movie was screened in its entirety utilizing the DTS offering. Generally, this is a mostly bland and average soundtrack that is front-heavy, though it was never intended to be a rip-roaring sonic extravaganza. It's more of a quiet, contemplative track enhanced by various effects and music that punctuate certain scenes and sequences. What's available does offer a decent presence; music is generally pleasing, ranging form the lightest notes of a piano or earthy, breezy, soft music accompanied by a series of light chants, to the harsh beating of piano keys to punctuate the most violent and terrifying of images in the film. The track handles the range of music and effects nicely. However, several sound effects and musical cues are presented with a rather high-pitched and harsh tone. Dialogue reproduction is steady and emanates cleanly and discernibly from the center speaker. The Bird With the Crystal Plumage's soundtrack supports the film rather than defines it, and all of the mixes available on this track replicate the film's sound nicely.
