Vivre Sa Vie

 (1962)

Vivre Sa Vie Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Vivre sa vie was a turning point for Jean-Luc Godard and remains one of his most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with a tragic character study. The lovely Anna Karina, Godard’s greatest muse, plays Nana, a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but instead ends up a prostitute; her downward spiral is depicted in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances. Featuring some of Karina and Godard’s most iconic moments—from her movie theater vigil with The Passion of Joan of Arc to her seductive pool-hall strut—Vivre sa vie is a landmark of the French New Wave that still surprises at every turn.

For more about Vivre Sa Vie and the Vivre Sa Vie Blu-ray release, see Vivre Sa Vie Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Anna Karina, Sady Rebbot, André S. Labarthe, Monique Messine, Paul Pavel
Director: Jean-Luc Godard

Vivre Sa Vie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.34:1, encoded with MPEG-AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Luc Godard's Vivre sa vie arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

Contrast and clarity are dramatically improved. For example, in Chapter 4, where Nana is questioned by the police, now we can clearly see her face - she looks sad, perhaps even frightened. On the UK SDVD by Nouveaux Pictures, it is almost impossible to see Nana's face. The outdoor scenes also look notably better - the film grain is a lot more prominent; the blacks and whites are richer and better saturated. The heavy digital noise that plagued the Nouveaux Pictures SDVD is also gone. Macroblocking is also not an issue of concern. Those of you with larger screens at home - larger than 100' - will be delighted with the depth and stability of this high-definition transfer. The famous dance scene, for example, looks absolutely fabulous. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing cuts, splices, debris, or stains to report in this review. (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).

Telecine supervisors: Lee Kline and Maria Palazzola. Telecine colorists: Abdel Benlatreche/VDM, Paris; Gregg Garvin/Modern Videofilm, Los Angeles.


Vivre Sa Vie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French LPCM 1.0 (mono). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The monaural soundtrack has been remastered at 24-bit from the optical prints. As a result, the dialog is clean, stable and easy to follow. Legendary French composer Michel Legrand's soundtrack also sounds lovely. There are no balance issues with it either. Finally, while watching Vivre sa vie, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or heavy background hiss to report in this review.

Audio restoration: Michael W. Wiese. Audio supervisor: Ryan Hullings.
