5.0 out of 5 stars
Blu-ray review, 26 Jun. 2011
I checked this title out on the Blu Ray Region Code Database and it said it was region-free, so I bit the bullet. I'm delighted to report that it played perfectly on my Region 2 blu ray player.
This film is one of my all time faves and I would give it five stars even if I had watched my old video copy. But the leap in quality from the (poorly-transferred) DVD to Blu-ray is astonishing. What blu ray brings to the film is a wealth of detail (so you can really enjoy the beautiful setting), clearer speech and, most noticeably, more controlled and intense colours.
I watch my films on a projector, so the differences between disks are really magnified. But if you love this film and you have a blu ray player, I highly recommend this disk. Never has a film so deserved the blu ray treatment!
