Zazie dans le métro

 (1960)

Zazie dans le métro Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A brash and precocious eleven-year-old (Catherine Demongeot) comes to Paris for a whirlwind weekend with her rakish uncle (Philippe Noiret); he and the viewer get more than they bargained for in this anarchic comedy from Louis Malle, which treats the City of Light as though it were a pleasure island just waiting to be destroyed. Based on a popular novel by Raymond Queneau that had been considered unadaptable, Malle’s audacious hit Zazie dans le métro is a bit of stream-of-conscious slapstick, wall-to-wall with visual gags, editing tricks, and effects, and made with flair on the cusp of the French New Wave.

For more about Zazie dans le métro and the Zazie dans le métro Blu-ray release, see Zazie dans le métro Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Philippe Noiret
Director: Louis Malle

Zazie dans le métro Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Louis Malle's Zazie dans le metro arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"This new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine colorist: Richard Deusy/Scanlab, Paris.
Blu-ray mastering: Radius60, Los Angeles.

I have seen only the R4 Australian SDVD release of Zazie dans le metro, which I understand uses the same transfer Optimum Home Entertainment had to work with in the United Kingdom when they prepared their Louis Malle boxset.

Criterion's Blu-ray release represents a strong upgrade in terms of image quality. This may not be immediately obvious if one compares the old R4 SDVD with the Blu-ray release strictly by looking at screencaptures, but detail and especially color reproduction are clearly superior. Furthermore, the macroblocking patterns that are noticeable on the SDVD are also effectively addressed. The background shimmer, particularly during the daylight footage, is eliminated as well. A layer of light grain is now easy to spot here, but not on the SDVD release. This being said, because of the intended cartoonish look - which favors plenty of unnaturally warm and soft colors and subdued contrast levels - the film has a tendency to look somewhat soft at times. This is not to say, however, that detail is compromised; this is a stylistic preference which compliments the satirical tone of the film. Lastly, edge-enhancement is not a serious issue of concern. The high-definition transfer is also free of debris, stains, cuts, and large damage marks. (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).


Zazie dans le métro Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

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

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

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the positive print soundtrack. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

The French LPCM 1.0 audio track has a decent dynamic amplitude. Naturally, Fiorenzo Carpi and André Pontin's score gets a decent boost. The dialog also sounds slightly clearer than it does on the SDVD. Balance, however, is practically identical. For the record, I did not detect any annoying pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
