5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 16 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Innocents (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
Once upon a time before special effects there was a fine art in cinema which used the viewer's mind to create effects which have not since been improved upon. Film makers during this period strived to maximise this through shot composition, art direction, light and shade, music score, simple editing, evocative cinematography and a style of acting to further enhance the desired effect in close relation to all of these disciplines and skills. 'The Innocents' is one the finest examples in this category. Engrossing and disturbing, always compelling. Lower the lights, open your mind and dare to let this black and white masterpiece contaminate you with endless psychological colour. You cannot fail to find yourself reflecting on its effect and feel the energy of its masterful delivery. Enhanced clarity in sound and vision via blu-ray.(I hope readers are not deterred from purchasing this disc due to some people receiving faulty discs, it is important to remember they are reviewing their experience and not the film. I suggest returning and requesting another if this happens, Amazon will accommodate I'm sure)

Just one question: are there any English HOH subtitles?

In reply to an earlier post on 12 Jan 2014 18:04:26 GMT
Yes, this blu ray disc has hard of hearing subtitles in English, it is an excellent piece of cinema hope you enjoy. Best, Charlie

Thanks for a very well written review Charlie. I'd held back from buying this due to others' experience with faulty discs, but have decided to go ahead on the strength of your review. Cheers, Ramin.

You're welcome Ramin, I hope the disc is not faulty, however I remember receiving a faulty disc from Amazon once and they sent me another free of any charge before I had even returned the faulty one. Hope you enjoy this fine piece of cinema and blu ray treatment of the black and white original makes it look wonderfully sharp.
