First of, a confession; I'm a Powell and Pressburger nut! Already owning this in standard DVD format - a print that was perfectly fine - I took the plunge and asked for this on Blu-ray as a birthday present, havingwatched an on-line preview of the restoration process. I sat down to watch it and was frankly blown away; I had expected to see some level of improvement, but the depth of clarity and colour that I was experiencing took my appreciation of this film to a whole new level. The extras are ok but skimpy and a tad thin, but this is more than made up for by the quality of the print. The sharpening of the sound was another revelation.
I was disinclined to update my existing collection of P & P movies to blu-ray prior to getting this, but having seen such a very real improvement in the presentation of this film I reckon I'll be looking to upgrade others as they become available.
The blu-ray print does credit to a great film. If you own a blu-ray player then you should buy this dvd, as it not only showcases the format in my opinion, but reminds us of why the greatest films are just that - great.
