The Damned

 (1947)

The Damned Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Oslo, April 19th 1945, as the Third Reich is living its last day, a group of Nazis and sympathizers (a Wehrmacht general, an SS leader and his "assistant", an Italian industrialist and his wife who is also the general's lover, a French collaborator) board a submarine that will take them to South America, where they hope to find shelter. While they sail off the shores of liberated Royan they manage to kidnap a French doctor to have him look after a wounded passenger. Dr Guilbert will be forced to share the restricted space of the submarine with the fugitives. The atmosphere soon becomes unbreathable...

The Damned Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Not being privy to the shape The Damned's elements were in, it's probably wise not to be too judgmental about Cohen's AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.33:1, for it's evident the film has undergone some substantial restoration. That said, there are a couple of consistently troubling issues that stand in the way of this receiving a higher score. The less troubling of the two problems is somewhat inconsistent contrast, which occasionally varies to fairly milky, overblown status. Much more odd are regular tonal variations that see the film morphing almost moment from moment from what I would term an accurate black and white presentation to something tinged almost toward the blue or even purple side of things. The elements simply may not have allowed for a more precise digital timing to have been done here, but the variances on display are really rather wide and not easy to ignore. All of that said, the bulk of the film looks rather good, with a crisp, mostly stable image, and above average fine detail. There are a lot of stock shots interspersed throughout the film (mostly to do with the submarine), and those understandably look a good deal more ragged than the bulk of this presentation.


The Damned Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Cohen lists the track on this Blu-ray as an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo outing, but I sensed little if any stereo separation, except perhaps for some of the brief music cues. One way or the other, this track is surprisingly trouble free, without even much hiss to report. There's occasional very minor boxiness in the midrange, but dialogue is always clear, and the sound effects also resonate quite vividly. Fidelity is very good and there's reasonable dynamic range here as well, courtesy of a few explosions and gun shots.
