The Naked Island

 (1960)

The Naked Island Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The film depicts a small family, a husband and wife and two sons, struggling to get by on a tiny island in the Seto Inland Sea, over the course of a year. They are the island's only occupants, and survive by farming. They must repeatedly carry the water for their plants and themselves in a row boat from a neighboring island...

The Naked Island Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.46:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Kaneto Shindo's The Naked Island arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer is beautiful. Image depth and clarity are very pleasing during the daylight footage as well as during the few nighttime sequences (see screencaptures #3 and 5). Contrast levels remain stable throughout the entire film. The blacks, whites, and the variety of grays are well balanced. There are absolutely no traces of problematic denoising corrections. Sharpening adjustments have not been performed either. Predictably, the film has a terrific and very consistent organic look. Compression is also very good. Purely transfer-specific anomalies, such as banding or aliasing, are nowhere to be seen. The film has also been carefully cleaned up. There are no large cuts, damage marks, or warps. A couple of tiny scratches, vertical lines and stains remain, but I suspect that they were left in order to preserve the integrity of the image. All in all, this is a wonderful presentation of Naked Island which is guaranteed to impress those who are going to see the film for the first time as well as those who have previously seen it on DVD. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Naked Island Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: Japanese LPCM 1.0. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The film is virtually dialog-free, but it has a beautiful soundtrack that greatly benefits from the lossless treatment. Overall dynamic movement is quite modest, but clarity and depth are very good. Background hiss is not an issue of concern. Also, there are no problematic audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
