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 French distributors Carlotta Films.

The marvelous 2009 restoration of The Red Shoes arrives on Blu-ray in France rather late, but it is just as impressive as the Criterion and ITV DVD Blu-ray releases. Once again, detail is outstanding, clarity excellent and contrast levels effectively stabilized. I ran a few quick tests with my Criterion and ITV DVD releases and as far as depth and fluidity are concerned I could not see any notable differences - all three releases look phenomenal. There are, however, some minor discrepancies in the color-schemes. Generally, reds and browns are slightly more prominent on the Carlotta release, while on the Criterion release greens appear marginally stronger (compare screencapture #12 from our review of the Criterion release with screencapture #11). On the other hand, the blues and blacks on the Carlotta disc are identical to those of the ITV DVD release (compare screencapture #18 from our review of the ITV DVD release with screencapture #2). The reds and browns on the Carlotta release are also identical to those of the ITV DVD release. In other words, there is a very small difference in color nuance between the Carlotta release and the Criterion release, but everything else, from fine object detail to clarity and contrast levels, appears to be identical. Finally, there are no compression issues or other purely transfer-related anomalies to report in this review. (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 Red Shoes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0 and French LPCM 1.0. For the record, Carlotta have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature.

The English LPCM 1.0 track has the same dynamic characteristics the English loseless track from the Criterion release boasts. Unsurprisingly, Brian Easdale's music score shines, while the dialog is consistently crisp, stable, and easy to follow. I quickly tested the French LPCM 1.0 track to hear how the film was dubbed, and all I could say is that there is a sea of difference in terms of quality - the dialog sounds rather thin and anemic while the music during the ballet sequence seems to be lacking depth.
