Topsy-Turvy

 (1999)

Topsy-Turvy Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In 1884, as a London heat wave cuts into the theater trade, Gilbert and Sullivan's latest work, "Princess Ida," receives lukewarm press. Sullivan rejects Gilbert's next idea as "topsy-turvy" and unbelievable, and although Gilbert tries to accomodate him, they cannot agree. Mired at a creative impasse, Gilbert and Sullivan can barely converse. Then, Gilbert's wife, Lucy "Kitty" Gilbert, drags him along to a Japanese exhibition--exposure to the very different culture begins inspiration to embark on the production of "The Mikado."

For more about Topsy-Turvy and the Topsy-Turvy Blu-ray release, see Topsy-Turvy Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Topsy-Turvy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in Mike Leigh's preferred aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Topsy-Turvy arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Supervised by cinematographer Dick Pope and approved by director Mike Leigh, this new digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine in 2K resolution from a 35mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisors: Dick Pope, Vishal Chathle/Universal Studios, Los Angeles; Maria Palazzola. Telecine colorist: Doug Drake/Universal Studios, Los Angeles."

I don't have the now out of print R1 SDVD release of Topsy-Turvy in my library to compare it to this new Blu-ray release, but I cannot possibly imagine anyone not being thrilled with it - the film looks splendid in 1080p. Detail is consistently excellent, even during the darker scenes, while clarity is outstanding. Color reproduction is very convincing, and I must speculate that this is probably the key area where this release convincingly outdoes the old R1 SDVD release of Topsy-Turvy. Indeed, the variety of reds, browns, grays, and blacks look remarkably healthy and natural. Furthermore, I did not see any traces of heavy noise reduction; a healthy layer of light grain is present at all times. This being said, I noticed that light sharpening has been applied during specific scenes (the sharpening is most obvious during close-ups), but none of it affects dramatically the integrity of the presentation. Finally, there are absolutely no stability issues to report in this review. I also did not see any annoying scratches, large damage marks, stains, or debris. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Topsy-Turvy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The surround track was remastered at 24-bit from the original 35mm magnetic track. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation."

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is excellent. Andrew Dickson score benefits greatly from the loseless treatment; the dialog and the singing are always crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
