The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French distributors Carlotta Films.

The high-definition transfer has been sourced from the same master ITV Studios had access to when they prepared their Blu-ray release of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp in the United Kingdom. Needless to say, the film looks quite spectacular on Blu-ray. However, there are a few very minor discrepancies between the two releases. Generally speaking, the reds appear slightly more prominent on the UK release, while here they are toned down and better balanced with the greens and browns. Brightness levels are also slightly elevated on the Carlotta release (compare screencapture #3 with screencapture #4 from our review of the UK release). The difference is marginal at best, but when one compares the two releases it is easy to spot. Detail, depth and fluidity are identical on the two releases. There are no traces of excessive degraining or post-production sharpening corrections. Compression is also very good. All in all, this is easily one of the very best releases in Carlotta Films' impressive catalog. If you are a French speaker, you need to have it in your collection. (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 Life and Death of Colonel Blimp Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0. For the record, Carlotta Films have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is outstanding. The music is lush and well rounded, never sounding thin, while the dialog is crisp, stable, and extremely easy to follow. There is absolutely no background hiss. Also, there are no audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
