Customer Review

on August 9, 2012
Anchor Bay offers up the same clean transfer of THE NIGHT PORTER on blu-ray as the French Wild-Side version (negligible for its forced French subtitles). The restored elements often look better than the original theatrical prints. There are a couple of DTS-HD audio options; both 2.0 and 5.1 options present the original, monaural English-language version of the soundtrack. It's region-B only, and requires multi-region player capabilities for US collectors.
The film offers up an oppressive atmosphere of decadence, but isn't as compelling an examination of post-war, repressive guilt that it should be; and the self-destructive nature of the paternal sexual relationship on display slowly loses impact. Well worth checking out, inspite of the criticism.
