The Last Metro

 (1980)

The Last Metro Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Gérard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve star as members of a French theater company living under the German occupation during World War II in François Truffaut’s gripping, humanist character study. Against all odds—a Jewish theater manager in hiding; a leading man who’s in the Resistance; increasingly restrictive Nazi oversight—the troupe believes the show must go on. Equal parts romance, historical tragedy, and even comedy, The Last Metro (Le dernier métro) is Truffaut’s ultimate tribute to art overcoming adversity.

For more about The Last Metro and the The Last Metro Blu-ray release, see the The Last Metro Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu, Jean Poiret, Paulette Dubost, Jean-Louis Richard, Maurice Risch
Director: François Truffaut

The Last Metro Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Francois Truffaut's The Last Metro arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

As expected, Criterion deliver yet another fantastic package. I really did not have any doubts that this film would look superb on Blu-ray, but having seen how strong the actual transfer is, I am simply ecstatic; in the future, we should be able to see some remarkable treatments from the US distributors. This being said, contrast, clarity and detail are very impressive. Furthermore, there are absolutely no traces of DNR-manipulation that I could detect either. As a result, The Last Metro reveals a very film-like look with plenty of film grain that should please the purists amongst us. The color-scheme, however, is probably the most impressive feature of this new Blu-ray transfer; the reds are so lush and rich, at times I had a difficult time believing that this film was shot in the early 80s. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are also not an issue of concern. Furthermore, I did not detect any disturbing scratches, debris, or stains to report here either. To sum it all up, Criterion's Blu-ray release of The Last Metro is very close to being absolutely perfect. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" release which you will not be able to play on your Region-B PS3s or SA. In order to view the content of this Blu-ray disc, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free player).


The Last Metro Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The only audio track available on this Blu-ray disc is French: Uncompressed Monaural. Generally speaking, this is a very pleasing mix without any serious issues that I could detect. Aside from a few tiny fluctuations during the opening scenes of the film (more than likely source related) the rest of the mix is just about perfect – the French dialog is crisp, crystal clear and very easy to follow. Furthermore, Georges Delerue's music also comes off the speakers in a very pleasing fashion. Finally, there were absolutely no cracks, pops, or hissings that I could detect. For the record, Criterion have provided optional (white) English subtitles.
