The Secret of the Grain Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Abdellatif Kechiche's The Secret of the Grain arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Shot on the HD Sony 900, this film was created entirely in the digital realm, without ever being output to a film element and transferred. This high-definition master was converted directly from the Digital Intermediate color space to SMPTE Rec. 709 24fps 1080p and approved by director Abdellatif Kechiche."

This is a strong high-definition transfer. Fine object detail is excellent, clarity great and contrast levels consistent. The color-scheme does not disappoint either; blues, greens, yellows, reds, browns and blacks look rich and very natural. Most of the nighttime footage looks a bit soft but also natural (some of the poorly lit scenes also reveal a bit of native digital noise). Generally speaking, the daytime footage is very impressive. Finally, while watching the film, I did not detect any specific transfer-specific anomalies to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free SA or PS3 in order to access its content).


The Secret of the Grain Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (with portions of Arabic and Russian). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

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

"The film features a fully digital soundtrack. The audio for this release was mastered at 24-bit from the original digital audio master files using Pro Tools HD."

The French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is excellent. The bass is potent, the rear channels intelligently used and the high-frequencies not overdone. The finale, in particular, sounds terrific (on the Artificial Eye DVD release the sound quality is very disappointing). Additionally, the dialog is crisp, clean, stable and very easy to follow. Also, while viewing the film, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.

The Secret of the Grain Blu-ray, News and Updates



This Week on Blu-ray, July 27-August 2 - July 27, 2010

As I write today's post, I can't help but see the similarities between the cover of today's Blu-ray release of Clash of the Titans and a scene from the beginning of Transformers. That might explain why this action-packed remake failed to provoke the same level ...
