The Well-Digger's Daughter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Well-Digger's Daughter emerges on Blu-ray—courtesy of Kino-Lorber—with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's true to source and strikingly sharp. Shot on 35mm, the image retains its natural filmic appearance here, with a warm layer of grain and no signs of digital noise reduction, excess compression, or other concerns. You may suspect some slight edge enhancement was applied—I did, at first—but on closer inspection it looks like the picture really is that sharp, with surface, skin, and clothing textures that are extremely finely resolved. This actually leads to a two or three instances of moire shimmer—see the weft of Amoretti's sweater in certain scenes—where the lens is effectively out-resolving the ability of a 1080p picture to display the full degree of detail that's being captured. (Don't worry, though; this is always brief and far from distracting.) Gorgeously shot by cinematographer Jean-François Robin, the film has a rich color palette—tinged with a slightly nostalgic warm cast—that's perfectly reproduced here, with balanced contrast and no under- or over-saturation. A beautiful high definition image in all respects.


The Well-Digger's Daughter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

For a mostly quiet drama that focuses on the dialogue between characters, The Well-Digger's Daughter—sporting a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track—has surprisingly involving and dynamic sound design. The mix is strong with room-filling environmental ambience—insect and bird calls, blowing wind through tall grass, crowds murmuring and clapping at the air show, etc.—making full use of the rear speakers. Filling out the soundscape is an evocative score by Alexander Desplat (The Tree of Life, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, and many more), which seems to borrow the first few bars from Krzysztof Komeda's theme for Rosemary's Baby. Voices are cleanly recorded and always balanced well. Do note, though, that The Well-Digger's Daughter has hard-coded English subtitles, meaning they can't be turned on or off at will. They're always there. This won't be a big deal for most audiences—who can't speak French and are going to leave the subtitles on anyway—but it may be a mild annoyance to some.
