The Stendhal Syndrome

 (1996)

The Stendhal Syndrome Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

When beautiful police detective Anna Manni follows the bloody trail of a sophisticated serial murderer/rapist through the streets of Italy, the young woman falls victim to the bizarre "Stendhal Syndrome" - a hallucinatory phenomenon which causes her to lose her mind and memory in the presence of powerful works of art. Trapped in this twilight realm, Anna plunges deeper and deeper into sexual psychosis, until she comes to know the killer's madness more intimately than she ever imagined.

Horror maestro Dario Argento (Suspiria, Opera) reaches new heights of florid fantasy and Grand Guignol with this warped work of art starring Maxim Magazine's "Sexiest Woman in the World" Asia Argento (Land Of The Dead, XXX), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong, Blade II) and Marco Leonardi (From Dusk Till Dawn 3). Previously edited outside of Italy, The Stendhal Syndrome is now presented here in stunning High Definition, transferred under the supervision of cinematographer Giuseppe Rotunno (All That Jazz, Amarcord) from the original Italian 35mm interpositive, and loaded with exclusive Extras.

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

Director: Dario Argento
Writer: Dario Argento

The Stendhal Syndrome Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Stendhal Syndrome debuts on Blu-ray with a 1080p transfer alongside a 1.66:1-framed aspect ratio, which preserves the film's original presentation and places small, vertical black bars on either side of the image when projected on a standard 1.78:1 display. With that said, the transfer looks positively stunning. The Stendhal Syndrome features a thick layer of grain that, again, preserves the filmmaker's intended vision and has the added benefit of lending to the picture a dazzling film-like look and feel. Colors throughout are spot-on; neither overly bright nor in the least faded, the transfer simply offers a good, stable palette that does well to reproduce an entire spectrum of colors, from bright blue to blood red. Detail is wonderful, too. The film opens inside a museum and the camera lingers on several works of art. The 1080p transfer reveals plenty of fine lines, cracks, creases, wrinkles, and other signs of general wear and tear on the works, and again, they each retain a nice color balance. Detail throughout the remainder of the film looks great, too; the Italian brick-laden streets, building façades, clothing, and other assorted odds and ends all take on a fine level of detail, and both up-close and distant objects retain a nice bit of sharpness and clarity. Plagued by neither poor blacks nor faulty flesh tones, The Stendhal Syndrome is a marvel to behold on Blu-ray.


The Stendhal Syndrome Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Stendhal Syndrome features two lossless soundtracks, both in English and one each of the DTS-HD MA 7.1 and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 varieties; an Italian-language track is available via a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 EX offering. Though the film was screened in its entirety utilizing the DTS track, random back-to-back samplings yielded no discernible differences in quality between the two lossless mixes. The DTS track delivers a nice, spacious, satisfying listen throughout. During the film's open inside the museum, it offers footsteps and patron chatter spread nicely and cleanly across the front half of the soundstage. The music that accompanies it plays with a crispness -- particularly in the highs -- that makes for a compelling and, eventually, altogether haunting opening scene. All throughout the film, in fact, whispers and other varied sound effects pour forth from the front half of the soundstage to chilling effect as Anna experiences the Stendhal Syndrome; there's not much in the way of an obvious rear channel presence during such scenes, though the surround speakers do feature some nice discrete effects later in the film. Though even the film's more action-packed scenes -- featuring several gun shots -- don't boast all that much in the way of ear-shattering volume or absolute realism, there's still a nice bit of clarity to the entire proceedings that makes the lossless soundtracks superior to the lossy mixes. Also featuring sound dialogue reproduction, The Stendhal Syndrome makes for a very good, though not altogether compelling, audio experience.
