The Story of O

 (1975)

The Story of O Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

In this masterpiece of sexual obsession, cinema's original sin returns with its shocking portrait of sexual submission from master of erotica Just Jaeckin (Emmanuelle, Lady Chatterly's Lover). A stunning young woman (Corinne Clery) surrenders herself at a remote chateau at her lover's (Udo Kier) request and is immediately forced into a round the clock regimen of every sexual appetite imaginable. Her submission is total to the orgasmic odyssey that explores the shadowy boundaries between pleasure and pain.

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

Starring: Corinne Clery, Udo Kier, Anthony Steel, Jean Gaven
Director: Just Jaeckin

The Story of O Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC, and granted a 1080p transfer The Story of O arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Somerville House Releasing.

There is a lot to be pleased with in this new transfer of Just Jaeckin's cult picture The Story of O. As long as you understand how the film was shot, its history, and could have and could have not been achieved in an HD presentation! With this small disclaimer out of the way, I must note that personally I am very satisfied with what I have in my hands. Somerville House Releasing have delivered a print which reveals good clarity and detail, a color scheme which is very much in tune with the dreamy look of the film, and a degree of contrast which I believe is the best that has been achieved in any format. Of course, the key issue here is understanding how good Just Jaeckin's film could look. If you expect to see a lush, well-defined, and bursting with colors print then you are in for a great deal of disappointment. If you, however, expect to see the heavy grain of The Story of O preserved, the dreamy, at times, misleadingly faded-looking, color-scheme intact, with plenty of dirt being removed from the actual print, then you will really like what the Blu-ray release offers. Let's be honest here, this is a cult erotic film which will never look as good as a restored Last Tango in Paris. If anything, it would look on par with what a restored Sergio Martino, Ugo Tognazzi, or Mariano Laurenti film from the early 70s would look like in HD. And as far as I am concerned if you are interested in classic erotic European cinema this print of The Story of O is probably the best treatment the film will boast in a very, very long time. Finally, I specifically wish to comment on the fact that the Blu-ray transfer appears to have eliminated a lot of the annoying specks and scratches noticeable on the SDVD. As far as I could tell this print appears to have been cleaned up quite a bit. (Note: The Blu-ray release is Region-free therefore you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographic location).


The Story of O Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Three different tracks are available: English Dolby Digital 2.0, French Dolby Digital 2.0, and Spanish Dolby Digital 2.0. First of all I would like to clarify something: The Story of O was composed in the same manner a lot of Italian gialli are – they relied and utilized post-production overdubbing where the actors rerecorded their own lines. Furthermore, I've always seen this film projected in English. I am aware that the French track is being regarded by some as the original audio track but the fact of the matter is the actors utter an overwhelming amount of their lines in English.

This being said, the audio treatment here is solid. The dialog is very easy to follow and the marvelous soundtrack by Pierre Bachelet comes off the speakers much more convincingly than what I hear produced by my SDVD. I am unsure how expansive the restoration efforts have been in the audio department but it is quite obvious to me that the audio is stronger, better balanced, and without any disturbing drop-outs, hissing, or cracks. Subtitles are not provided for any of the three tracks (small bits of imposed English subs are available when the French track is on). Finally, I quickly wish to note that I also spent some time with the French track which isn't bad at all. The narration is quite well done and as far as I could tell there aren't any issues with the technical presentation.
