This review is for the new UK blu-ray release from Second Sight.

The release is a 2 disc set (a 50gb dual layer blu-ray disc containing both versions of the film, and a DVD with extras).

The film itself never ages thanks to its brilliant score, sumptuous photography and warm lead performances. It's maybe not as graphic as i remembered it but there's still lots of nudity (male and female) and at the end of the day its a genuinely heartwarming human drama with dashes of humour along the way. Its testament to its enjoyment that there's not a boring moement even in the 3 hour director cut.

The film looks gorgeous in HD and in its original 1/66:1 ratio. The colours really jump off the screen and the closeup shots of Dalle and Anglades really show off incredible amounts of detail. The film has never looked clearer or brighter and the wonderful score has never been better served (PCM mono). The English subtitles are optional and easy to read at all times.

The theatrical cut looks lovely at a glance but I focussed on the directors cut which is also gorgeous.

On the DVD is a featurelength documentary with lots of new cast and crew interviews and some original screen test footage of Dalle.

Both discs are region free.

The packaging is nice too. The discs are housed in a DVD-sized digipack with an outer card slipcase (it's a bit taller than your avereage blu-ray package but roughly the same width).

Wow, what to say? Brilliant masterpiece of french cinema. Love story, sexuality, romance, tragedy in one film. The longer version, director's cut, is smoothly watchable till end, in spite is three hours long.

Everybody should own this edition of the Betty Blu blu ray. Both editions of the film are on the first disc (the director's cut & the original theatrical version). The second disc is a DVD. It contains an interesting making of documentary called Blue Notes & Bungalows and Béatrice Dalle screen tests.
More importantly, the film is uncensored & it's great to have both versions on one disc. I prefer the director's cut.

Very rarely can one call a film perfect, but the moving story of 'Betty Blue' is perhaps an exception. In this essentially chracter-driven film, the plot is simple enough: Beatrice Dalle plays the role of the young, beautiful and (so it emerges) mentally ill Betty, who determines to get her lover Zorg's (Jean-Hughes Anglade) long-forgotten manuscript published. The film explores the apparent simplicities and emotional complexities of the passionate love that binds Zorg and Betty to one another. Masterfully directed by Jean-Jacques Beneix, and with an unforgettable score by Gabriel Yared, Betty Blue is a modern masterpiece of the French cinema.

This is the first world cinema film I saw, so maybe I'm a bit biased.
But it's such a great film, stunningly filmed, perfect music, great story. Just as film should be.
With this added documentary it adds extra small details to fill in small caps.

I had forgotten just how wonderful this film and soundtrack was especially in this Blu-Ray edition, the music by Gabriel Yared is fantastic and seems to fit the film beautifully. I watched the Directors Cut first and I cant believe just how effortlessly 3 hours passed by. I think I might just go into the kitchen and make some Chili in the hope that Beatrice Dalle might just drop in! If you like this film this is version that you should get.

The best pressing to date of this landmark movie. Both cinema (Director's Cut 177 mins Disc 1) and DVD/VHS (Theatrical 116 mins ) versions are included along with an hour documentary and Betreace Dalle screentests on Disc 2. Class picture quality remastered to HD and stereo sound make this epic. If you're after a copy get this 2 Disc Region 0 Edition and enjoy.

I purchased this specifically to get the shorter, cinematic release (since most single dvd versions seem to be the longer, director's cut). And it's in my opinion of the two versions that I'm likely to be at odds with most reviewers.

The shorter cinematic release is a fine film; nicely paced with moments of folly, fun, humour and sadness beautifully filmed. And a terrific score too. There a just a handful of cringe moments where the story, script or acting don't convince, but many more moments that are genuinely brilliant.

The Director's cut adds an unwelcome homophobic undercurrent to the film without adding anything of merit. To my mind, the editors got it spot on and did the film a massive favour when they cutout the flab for the shorter release.

Many reviewers will disagree, and I know the director certainly does (he was scathing about the cuts imposed to create the shorter cinematic version). Stll, that's the way I see it and the great news is that with this set you get both versions and can form your own opinion. Enjoy :)
