Digital Noise Reduction on Little Women 4K
I discovered DNR filtering was applied from two major digital platforms with the recent 4K Ultra HD release of Little Women. The natural 35mm film grain is washed away, while two other sites kept the grain intact. Greta Gerwig and her team mastered the 35mm film stock in TRUE 4K. Remember Sony decided to not release a 4K disc version of this American classic.
A 4K disc version from Germany is planned, but with the virus, Amazon Germany is not shipping discs stateside at this moment.
I've included detail frame shots showing the difference with our in-depth review.
Here are two of the excellent HDR frame shots from the sites that didn't apply DNR.
