The Leopard

 (1963)

The Leopard Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In Sicily during the 1800s, as the aristocracy found itself being suffocated by a newly democratic fervor, Prince Don Fabrizio Salina tries to hold on to the past, but it appears that his glory days are waning. This is perfectly exemplified by his nephew Tancredi Falconeri and his gorgeous wife-to-be Angelica. As the revolt gathers steam and begins to affect a real change, the aging prince must come to terms with the new world that surrounds him.

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

Starring: Burt Lancaster, Alain Delon, Claudia Cardinale, Paolo Stoppa, Rina Morelli, Serge Reggiani
Director: Luchino Visconti

The Leopard Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.20:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Luchino Visconti's The Leopard arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of the BFI.

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

"The master (for The Leopard) has been provided by Twentieth Century Fox.

The Leopard has been presented in its original Super Technirama aspect ratio of 2.21:1 and was transferred in High Definition from the original 35mm 8-perforation negative. Director of Photography Giuseppe Rotunno supervised this transfer. The audio is presented in mono 2.0 and was mastered from the 35mm optical soundtrack print master.

Additional picture and sound restoration was done by Ascent 142, London. "

Similar to the Criterion high-definition transfer, the BFI high-definition transfer has been supervised by Mr. Rotunno. As a result, the basics here appear to be practically identical to those of the Criterion high-definition transfer: fine object detail is excellent, clarity very impressive and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. The color-scheme is also practically identical to that of the Criterion high-definition transfer. There are some scenes that look slightly brighter on the BFI high-definition transfer, and the yellows and browns in them slightly better saturated (compare the opening shots with Fabrizio's palace), but the difference is negligible. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are, again, not a serious issue of concern. I also did not notice any large cuts, marks, stains, or dirt to report in this review. What I did notice during a few scenes, however, is some extremely mild background flicker. For example, in the very beginning of the film, as the camera moves through the garden and approaches Fabrizio's palace, the effect is quite easy to see. Elsewhere, I noticed some mild noise popping up here and there that I did not see on the Criterion high-definition transfer. All in all, though, this is still a remarkably strong high-definition transfer, which I believe serious film aficionados will be very impressed with. (Note" This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Leopard Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Italian LPCM 2.0. For the record, BFI have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

I don't have any major reservations with the Italian LPCM 2.0 track. Nino Rota's terrific music score sounds fantastic and the dialog is clean, crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. I also did not detect any serious balance issues. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review. (Note: I watched the entire film again, and my impression is that the English translation/subtitles isn't/aren't identical to the English translation/subtitles from the Criterion release).
