The Kid With a Bike

 (2011)

The Kid With a Bike Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Placed in a group home for children, peppery 11-year-old Cyril promptly escapes, unwilling to accept that his deadbeat dad has abandoned him. Rebuffed by his father, the distraught Cyril is taken in by concerned passerby Samantha, who in time becomes his foster guardian. Samantha's good heart could make a world of difference in Cyril's life, but the troubled young boy still has demons to deal with.

For more about The Kid With a Bike and the The Kid With a Bike Blu-ray release, see the The Kid With a Bike Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

The Kid With a Bike Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's The Kid With a Bike arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Supervised by director of photography Alain Marcoen, this new digital transfer was created in 2K resolution on a Northlight scanner from a 35mm interpositive.

Transfer supervisor: Alain Marcoen.
Colorist: Gerard Savary/Eclair Laboratories, Epinay-sur-Seine, France."

The high-definition transfer used for this release, which was supervised by director of photography Alain Marcoen, is virtually identical to the one Artificial Eye used for their Blu-ray release of The Kid With a Bike in the United Kingdom. The film has a warm, very beautiful organic look. During sequences with plenty of natural light, detail and clarity are exceptional. Color reproduction is also excellent - the reds, yellows, greens, blues, and browns are are consistently lush. There are no traces problematic denoising corrections or contrast adjustments/boosting. Excluding some extremely light banding I noticed during the second half of the film, compression is also very good. To sum it all up, I think that The Kid With a Bike looks quite beautiful on Blu-ray. It is guaranteed to please its fans. (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 Kid With a Bike Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

Surround and dynamic activity in The Kid With a Bike are very limited, but this is how the film was shot. Excluding a short theme (beautiful strings) that is occasionally heard in the back, music also does not have an important role in the film. The dialog is exceptionally crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. There are no pops, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
