Blu Ray Review!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Funny Face [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I don't need to comment about the actual film much here - it's a lightweight musical, not one of Fred's best films (or Audrey's, for that matter), but it has some fun numbers and Audrey gets to show off her ballet skills here and there. If you like traditional, romantic musicals this is a pretty enjoyable one. What I will focus on is the blu ray edition as released in the UK. It is open region, played fine on my European blu ray player. It is a really basic release, absolutely no extras or frills of any kind. The picture transfer is excellent; the colours are vibrant, the detail in each scene outstanding. The sound is not so impressive, though, I had to crank the volume up much higher than normal to get the dialogue and the quality was decidedly fuzzy here and there. Which is a shame, since you would have thought that for a musical they would have made more effort to clean up the sound. Still, it's a pleasant watch and the visuals are vastly improved on previous dvd releases.

I found the volume fine, although I play it through a sound system, and like you I was delighted with the blu ray picture. Always liked the movie, and it was the Paris number that made me go there for the first time. Thank you for imforming me re. The blu ray picture. S Wonderfull.
