Masters of Cinema Blu-ray - April 2012: Not much to address - we get a Mizoguchi classic in hi-def courtesy of MoC! The improved resolution is a significant improvement in-motion - the image is brighter, more detailed via the layered contrast - it shows a shade more information in the frame. Audio gets the HD-bump and ratchets up a notch closer to purity. Optional subtitles are at MoC's usual high standard.
On the supplements they have included Mizoguchi's Oyu-sama in 1080P plus the Rayns discussions on both films. There is also the included booklet. The Dual-format package also contains a DVD of the feature.
This film always floors me - and it have it in such a wonderful Blu-ray package makes it a true keepsake for the digital library. I rate this 'Essential'.
