The Night Porter

 (1974)

The Night Porter Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

A concentration camp survivor discovers her ex-torturer/lover working as a night porter at a hotel in postwar Vienna. When the couple attempt to re-create their sadomasochistic relationship, his former SS comrades begin to stalk them. Operatic and disturbing, The Night Porter deftly examines the cruelty and decadence of Nazi culture.

For more about The Night Porter and the The Night Porter Blu-ray release, see the The Night Porter Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Dirk Bogarde, Charlotte Rampling, Philippe Leroy, Gabriele Ferzetti, Giuseppe Addobbati, Isa Miranda
Director: Liliana Cavani

The Night Porter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Liliana Cavani's The Night Porter arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment-UK.

The high-definition transfer appears to have been sourced from the same new master French distributors Wild Side Video had access to when they prepared their Blu-ray release for the Gallic markets (in fact, the Wild Side Films logo appears in the beginning of the film). Generally speaking, its basics are quite strong. Despite the abundance of low light, most close-ups convey pleasing depth, with the footage from inside the hotel looking quite good. The daylight footage also boasts decent fluidity (see screencapture #3). The best news, however, is that there are no traces of problematic denoising/degrainning corrections. Additionally, edge-enhancement never sneaks in. This being said, grain isn't always well resolved, partially due to the fact that extremely light noise occasionally overwhelms it - but there are no lumps of grain or noise that stick out. On the contrary, despite some minor fluctuations the film has a genuinely pleasing organic look. There are absolutely no serious stability issues to report in this review either. All in all, this Blu-ray release of Liliana Cavani's controversial film represents a substantial upgrade in quality over virtually every previous release of the film, including Criterion's quite problematic R1 DVD release, as well as General Video's Italian R2 DVD release. (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 Night Porter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Anchor Bay-UK have not provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The English LPCM 2.0 track has a strong dynamic amplitude that gives quite a boost to the excellent soundtrack. The oboe and violin solos, in particular, sound beautiful. The long segment from the performance of Die Zauberflote also boasts substantially better depth (when one compares the same segment from the Criterion release). There are no distortions, excessive background hiss, pops, or cracks. The dialog is also very easy to follow. However, optional English subtitles should have been included. I tested only a few scenes with the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track but did not hear any substantial dynamic improvements. For this film, I prefer the original two-channel track.
