Un Taxi pour Tobrouk

 (1960)

Un Taxi pour Tobrouk Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Libya, 1942. Four soldiers in the Free French Forces are crossing the desert when their jeep breaks down. They have no other option but to continue their journey to Tobruk on foot. On the way, they encounter a party of German soldiers - one of whom they take captive, the others they shoot down. Taking possession of the Germans’ jeep, the four French soldiers resume their desert crossing with their reluctant prisoner. What ensues is an odyssey that is both hazardous and revealing, but it is doubtful that any of the five men will live to tell the tale...

Un Taxi pour Tobrouk Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Denys de La Patellière's Taxi for Tobruk arrives on Bu-ray courtesy of French distributors Gaumont.

Like all previous releases in the Gaumont Classics Collection, the high-definition transfer for this release has been struck from a newly restored master. However, I do not have a DVD release of this film in my library to do some direct comparisons.

Generally speaking, detail and clarity are pleasing. Because the overwhelming majority of the action takes place in the desert and natural light is in abundance, there is also decent depth. The color grading does not disappoint either - the blacks are solid while the variety of grays and whites are well balanced with them. This being said, There are some minor compression anomalies. During specific sequences (early into the film) some light compression artifacts are easy to spot (see screencaptures #8 and 11). Occasionally, there is also light edge flicker that pops up here and there, usually either in the upper left or right corner. Theses are not serious issues that would affect one's viewing experience, but are certainly easy to spot. On a positive side, there are absolutely no traces of excessive sharpening corrections. Though occasionally mixed with light noise, grain is also present. All in all, this is a decent presentation of a film which I do not believe too many people outside of France have had the opportunity to see. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Un Taxi pour Tobrouk Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Gaumont have provided optional English and French SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The lossless audio track is solid. During the action scenes the trucks are destroyed and elsewhere where shots are fired, the sound is well rounded and stable. There are no distortions, pops, or cracks. The overall range of dynamic is rather limited, but given the film's age and budget this should not be surprising. The dialog is crisp, clear, and stable. The English translation is very good.
