5.0 out of 5 stars Wot's ... Uh the Deal, 18 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Valley (Obscured by Clouds) (DVD + Blu-ray) (1972) (Blu-ray)
At last a good quality DVD release of this cult classic film, cult because of the soundtrack by Pink Floyd, the album the preceded Dark Side of the Moon, and recorded in a two week break from recording 'Dark side of the moon' (also available on Amazon).
However I would caution like the film More (available on Amazon and issued a few years back by the BFI) the music is not as prominent as it could be (You probably hear more in the film trailer than the film itsself),The music is often buried very deep in the background.

To the film, we have an excellent transfer of the film, from the original film stock, nicely cleaned up and looking very good on my TV. (I should add that I don't have a Blu Ray player so I am reviewing the DVD and not the Blu Ray) The sound is excellent though it is Mono, and a lot of the spoken word is French (so subtitles are an option). The film itself is slowly paced, and almost has the style of a travelogue, but give it the time and you will feel quite well rewarded in the end, though it is a film of its time, (so dont expect any car chases or explosions). Do expect dream sequences and a number of seemingly strange edits.

Extras are good as well, with an alternative take of the end of the film, approximately 15 minutes of contemporary documentaries, theatrical trailers for 3 Barbet Schroder films, and a large accompanying booklet.
You could also consider this as a bonus disc pack either a DVD with Bonus Blu ray disc or a Bly Ray disc with a Bonus DVD. Either way a great package and good value.
Don't ignore the package because you don't have a Blu ray player Embrace the Blu ray as it will allow for an upgrade later.
