The Blue Angel

 (1930)

The Blue Angel Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Immanuel Rath, an old bachelor, is a professor at the town's university. When he discovers that some of his pupils often go into a speakeasy, The Blue Angel, to visit a dancer, Lola Lola, he comes there to confront them. But he is attracted to Lola. The next night he comes again--and does not sleep at home. This causes trouble at work and his life takes a downward spiral.

The Blue Angel Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Newly restored in high definition by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau Institute—the same folks who oversaw the recent restoration of Fritz Lang's MetropolisBlue Angel alights on Blu-ray with a satisfying 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation. Sourced from archival 35mm elements, the image fully retains its natural filmic look here, with a visible grain structure and no traces of adverse digital noise reduction or edge enhancement. While the film hasn't quite been given the same level of frame-by-frame restorative polish as Metropolis, the print has been decently cleaned up, with comparatively few white specks and small scratches for a movie from 1930. There is some age-related damage—occasional vertical scratches, slight brightness fluctuations, some brief warping and staining—but nothing out of the ordinary if you're used to watching films from this era. Those who owned Kino's previous Blue Angel DVD will notice an appreciable upgrade in clarity, even if the picture—on the whole—is a bit soft, with a chunky grain pattern that inherently limits the resolution of fine textures. Aside from the mild aforementioned flickering—which is quite hard to correct digitally—the film's black and white photography is handled well, with a good contrast balance that neither crushes shadow detail nor blows out highlights. No overt compression or encode issues either. All around, a very watchable transfer.


The Blue Angel Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Blue Angel's original German-language audio is capably reproduced on Blu-ray via an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 track. Considering this is an 82-year-old film and one of Germany's earliest talkies, there are obviously some unavoidable limitations in sound quality here. You'll notice a low-but- persistent background hiss if you're listening for it, occasional pops and crackles, and some harshness/muffling in the vocals, but nothing grating or distracting in the slightest. The real highlight here is Marlene Dietrich's musical numbers, including "They Call Me Naughty Lola," and the famous "Falling in Love Again," which has subsequently been covered by The Beatles, Christina Aguilera, and Kevin Ayers. The disc includes optional English subtitles, which appear in easy to read white lettering with black borders.
