The Double Life of Veronique Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.64:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Krzysztof Kieslowski's The Double Life of Veronique arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine in 2K resolution from the original 35mm negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Rahma Goubar.
Telecine colorist: Herve Fougera/Scanlab, Paris."

It appears that Criterion and Artificial Eye have had access to the same master (supplied by French distributors MK2). Unsurprisingly, Criterion's high-definition transfer is just as strong - fine object detail is excellent, clarity pleasing, and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. Once again, however, I am most impressed with the color reproduction; the variety of warm greens, yellows, reds, and browns look absolutely fantastic. Edge-enhancement is not a serious issue of concern. I also did not see any traces of excessive noise filtering. Generally speaking, the fine film grain has been retained - but often times it is also covered by an extremely light layer of shifting noise (see screencaptures #3 and 17). In motion, however, I can not see any difference between the Criterion and Artificial Eye transfers. Lastly, there are absolutely no stability issues to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Double Life of Veronique Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Polish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (with portions of French). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The stereo soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the 35mm magnetic tracks. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using Audio Cube's integrated audio workstation."

The Polish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is fantastic. Zbigniew Preisner's dreamy music score now sounds better than ever. The chorus performances, in particular, are outstanding. Indeed, the Polish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track has a very impressive dynamic amplitude that gives the film an entirely new vibe. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow.
