The Trial

 (1962)

The Trial Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Brilliantly capturing the opressive paranoia of Franz Kafka's classic novel, Orson Welles' THE TRIAL is the story of the young clerk, Josef K., who is arrested. All without ever knowing his crime. Welles filmed this baroque work of genius in a deserted belle epoque railway station in Paris. The strange setting perfectly captured the bizarre and nightmarish world of Kafka's mythical totalitarian state.

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

Starring: Anthony Perkins, Orson Welles, Jeanne Moreau, Romy Schneider, Akim Tamiroff, Elsa Martinelli
Director: Orson Welles

The Trial Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.64:1 encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Orson Welles' The Trial arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Studio Canal.

The Trial is the weakest of the three new additions to Studio Canal's classic collection (the other two are Luis Bunuel's That Obscure Object of Desire and Marcel Carne's Le Quai Des Brumes). The high-definition transfer this release uses has been struck from a dated source and quite often it shows. The most prominent issue here is the presence of moderate edge-enhancement, which viewers with larger screens will likely easily notice (see screencaptures #4 and 12). Fortunately, it is not too overwhelming, and this is why good portions of the film actually look acceptable (see screencapture #2). Contrast and brightness levels appear to have been slightly elevated, which is why it is often easy to spot grain fluctuations and minor filtering corrections. Detail is decent but clearly not as pleasing as that from the other two releases mentioned above. Color grading is relatively good. Finally, there are a couple of sequences where I noticed minor stability issues (frame transition issues and edge flicker) but they are hardly distracting. All in all, considering how poor previous DVD releases of The Trial have been in various regions, Studio Canal's Blu-ray release represents an obvious upgrade in visual quality. Very clearly, however, there is still a lot of room for serious improvements. (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).

Note: The disc's adjustable main menu - the interface can be set in English, French, or German - indicates that this Blu-ray release is also meant to be sold in Germany and France. Naturally, the German and French releases should look identical to the UK release.


The Trial Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Studio Canal have provided optional English SDH, French, and German subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless audio track is good. The dialog is stable and relatively crisp. Some extremely light hiss occasionally creeps in, but there are never serious issues that could potentially distract one's viewing experience. There are no serious dynamic fluctuations either. I also did not detect any distortions and dropouts to report in this review.
