A great Blu-Ray of a great film,
This review is from: Brief Encounter [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Do not listen to the person who said this is less than great despite the claims of being image-conscious. I've seen 35mm prints that weren't as good as this Blu-Ray. It's been lovingly restored and looks absolutely fantastic in every way. The negative must have been in very good shape, despite what Mr. Image Conscious says. In fact, it's a shame Mr. Image Conscious can't be specific - point out the specific things that he thinks are less than great - that would be illuminating. As it is, if you love the film I can't imagine you wouldn't be thrilled with the Blu-Ray. There is no extant DVD version of this film that comes within a country mile of this transfer - I'd advise a trip to the optometrist for anyone who tells you otherwise.

Can I assume you are using a US Blu-Ray player? I am in the US too (Oregon) and would like to order this film on Blu-Ray, provided it is likely to play on a Blu-Ray player sold here...Thanks!

Brief Encounter [Blu-ray] Hi! I agree. I happen to have got a council libary copy on Blu Ray and ran it and it's great. I have the earlier DVD which I will always keep in my large archive. I had neglected to order the Blu Ray but I have already ordered the copy I am viewing from a local Australian rights holder's label. It is an identical master to the UK release but a little cheaper for me in this case. A little more care and we get a great result. If only all I like can be the same but this is next to impossible.

You've written a review of the blu-ray version. I wanted to see a review of the DVD special edition to find out why it is special.
