The Red Shoes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 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 Red Shoes arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"This new high-definition digital transfer was created from the 2009 4K digital restoration made from the original Techniocolor negatives and optical tracks. The Red Shoes was restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive in association with the BFI, the Film Foundation, ITV Global Entertainment Ltd., and Janus Films. Restoration funding was provided by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Film Foundation, and the Louis B. Mayer Foundation. Restoration supervised by: Robert Gitt, with the assistance of Barbara Whitehand. Digital colorist: Ray Grabowski/Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging, Burbank, CA. Film color timing: David Cetra/Cinetech, Valencia, CA. Digital audio restoration: John Polito. Digital Picture Restoration: Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging, in association with Prasad Corporation Ltd. (India) and MTI Film".

I decided to name the parties involved with this project so that people could get a good idea of how important the restoration of The Red Shoes was. Hopefully, once you see the final product you would be as pleased as I am.

The high-definition transfer looks solid. Detail is fantastic, clarity very impressive and contrast levels simply wonderful. The color-scheme, however, is where the most serious improvements are - blues, reds, yellows, greens and blacks look lush and notably rich.

This high-definition transfer appears to be practically identical to the one ITV used for their Blu-ray release of The Red Shoes in the United Kingdom. I did not see any serious fluctuations in the color-schemes. Contrast levels and clarity look very similar as well. Blown through a digital projector, the two high-definition transfers also convey similar depth and fluidity. To sum it all up, I am convinced that film aficionados residing in Region-A territories will be very impressed with this wonderful release. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Red Shoes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

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

I do not have any major reservations with the English LPCM track. The dialog is crisp, clean, clear and stable. Brian Easdale's music score also sounds very good. Generally speaking, the dynamic amplitude of the English LPCM track is almost identical to that found on the ITV Blu-ray release. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.
