Another terrific Blu-ray transfer from Criterion. Colors are very vibrant very natural as a large portion of the movie takes place indoors. The audio is excellent for a romantic movie with the subwoffer adding lots of bass when the story takes place in various bars. Lea and Adele are fantastic as the two main characters. Excellent subtitles the story is very easy to understand. Even though the movie is 3 hours long the director keeps you in suspense wondering what is going to happen next. In the end Adele shows us "Blue is the Warmest Color".

I was thinking of picking this one up... for the transfer, of course.

If you are only looking at this movie only for the "transfer" then I suggest a thousand other "transfers" that are far better and much better filmed than this one (and that is saying quite a bit for those other "transfers"). wink.gif

The rest of the movie is quite good.

The transfer itself is OK, not great. It looked different in the theater. And also the BR has a running time of 3 hours 8 seconds (that's the Oppo display time) which is longer than 179 minutes in the theater. So obviously something has been added and I am not going to say what that was. A sort of extended cut.

Don't criterion add their titles + Janus Films titles to every release? That would account for the 30-60s.

Watch it for free on Netflix streaming. Criterion is releasing a special edition of this title with extras in a few months, so this one will soon be obsolete.

agreed. great film. I told my wife we had a three hour subtitled movie to watch and she groaned a bit, but ended up getting quickly absorbed. Excellent acting (and it was nice to hear my wife say, "wow, those chicks are HOT" lol). But my memories of the film are melancholy since I really felt for the characters; almost hard to believe they are not real people.
