Un amour de Swann

 (1984)

Un amour de Swann Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Elegant and educated bachelor, Charles Swann, moves in the most powerful and fashionable circles of Paris in the 1890's. When he falls in love with Odette de Crecy, a courtesan, his friends warn him against marriage. Proving himself a silly and socially-foul goose, Swann ducks his social responsibilities, Odette ensnares him, and he is gently but firmly cast out of society amidst everyone's great politeness.

For more about Un amour de Swann and the Un amour de Swann Blu-ray release, see Un amour de Swann Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jeremy Irons, Ornella Muti, Alain Delon
Director: Volker Schlöndorff

Un amour de Swann Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Volker Schlöndorff's Swann in Love arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French distributors Gaumont.

Similar to the majority of the releases that have appeared in Gaumont's Classic Collection, the high-definition transfer used for this release was apparently struck from a newly restored master (I assume that the overwhelming majority of these are done in 2K for Gaumont's library and then archived). The basics here are intact - the majority of the close-ups convey good depth and detail, clarity is pleasing, and the larger panoramic shots boast decent fluidity. Color reproduction does not disappoint either. There is a good range of warm and natural blues, greens, browns, and grays, and stable blacks. As usual, the most pleasing aspect of these transfers is the complete lack of harsh sharpening corrections. This being said, once again there are traces of extremely light denoising corrections (see screencapture #7). Clearly, detail isn't seriously compromised and the film does have a stable organic look, but there is simply no need for these corrections. Still, this is indeed a very strong release that represents a major upgrade in quality over the out of print the defunct HVE produced some years ago. (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 amour de Swann Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

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

I've noticed that various French sites list the French audio track as the 'original' one (version originale francaise), but this simply isn't true. There were DVD releases of the film that had only the French audio track, but the film was actually shot in English, and the European actors were later on overdubbed (some dubbed their own lines), again in English. In fact, while watching the film it is pretty easy to see that they utter their lines in English.

The English lossless track is very good. Swann in Love has a very unique, very tense soundtrack which greatly benefits from the lossless upgrade - the strings sound well rounded yet quite vibrant, while the occasional piano motifs truly shine. The dialog is crisp and stable, but optional English subtitles for this film are a necessity as some of the actors have rather thick accents.
