The Man in the White Suit Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Alexander Mackendrick's The Man in the White Suit arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of StudioCanal.

Recently restored in 2K, The Man in the White Suit looks quite beautiful on Blu-ray. From start to finish detail and depth are indeed very pleasing. Close-ups in particular look great (see screencapture #3), but many of the outdoor sequences also surprise with impressive depth (see screencapture #2). Color saturation does not disappoint either. The blacks are lush and stable, while the grays and whites are well balanced. There are no traces of excessive degraining. Compromising sharpening corrections are also nowhere to be seen. Large cuts, damage marks, and debris have been effectively removed. Unsurprisingly, the film has a pleasing organic look. This said, I noticed a couple of sequences where compression could have been better. It is hardly noticeable, but trained eyes will likely spot that there are some extremely small fluctuations (for example, see the light posterization in screencapture #10). Still, this is a very pleasing presentation of Alexander Mackendrick's classic film that is guaranteed to impress its fans. (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 Man in the White Suit Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, StudioCanal have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The range of nuanced dynamics is rather limited, but this should not be surprising. The limitations are directly related to the film's sound design, not the strength of the lossless track. On the other hand, the dialog is very crisp, stable, and easy to follow. Clearly, various stabilizations have been performed, while background hiss has been removed as best as possible. For the record, there are no audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
