The Conformist Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with VC-1 and granted a 1080p transfer, Bernardo Bertolucci's The Conformist arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Raro Video USA.

The release uses as a foundation a new restoration of The Conformist supervised by cinematographer Vittorio Storaro. The restoration work was carried out by Cineteca di Bologna (Italy).

I've done some direct comparisons with Arrow Video's Region-B Blu-ray release and can confirm that there are substantial improvements in terms of clarity and detail. Most well-lit close-ups boast wonderful depth and there is improved shadow definition during the indoor sequences (see screencaptures #4 and 10). There are no traces of problematic filtering corrections. Unsurprisingly, now there is a fine layer of grain that is visible throughout the entire film. To get an idea how much of it was filtered on the Region-B release, please compare screencapture #18 with screencapture #2 from our review of the Region-B release, and screencapture #5 with screencapture #3 from the same Region-B review. This being said, the encoding isn't as convincing as it could have been, and as a result there are areas of the film where the grain isn't as tight and evenly distributed as it should have been (see again screencapture #18). Still, from start to finish the film does have a pleasing organic appearance. There are no traces of problematic sharpening corrections. Furthermore, some stability issues remain. For example, the mentioned in our review of the Region-B release jerky movement is still present around the 15-minute mark (this is the most obvious example). A few more examples are present elsewhere in the film, but they are not as prominent. A couple of tiny specks pop up here and there, but never become distracting. Color reproduction is very good. Color saturation, in particular, is excellent -- there are no traces of color boosting or other digital color corrections. All in all, there is certainly some room for improvement. The encoding definitely could have been better and some image stabilization enhancements could have been applied. However, this is still a very nice organic presentation of The Conformist. In fact, it is the best English-friendly presentation of the film on the global home video market. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray release. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


The Conformist Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: Italian LPCM 2.0 and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Raro Video USA have provided optional white English subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless Italian track has a good dynamic range which allows Georges Delerue hauntingly beautiful score to open up the film in all the right places. Clarity and depth are also very good. Some extremely light hiss occasionally makes its presence felt, but it never becomes distracting. The dialog is clean, stable, and easy to follow. Some viewers may notice some extremely small sync/alignment discrepancies (and they are indeed very small), but some actors spoke their lines in different languages (English) and were later on overdubbed. In other words, they are part of the film's original sound design.

The English dub is good to have, as both Jean-Louis Trintignant and Stefania Sandrelli, for instance, spoke lines in English. The Italian track, however, is the one to use when viewing the film.
