Customer Review

on 16 February 2012
I remember seeing this film on bbc as a young child.Ever since then,this film has always been one of my favourites.I vividly remember one sequance from the television showing.After returning from a lightning raid in to French lines,a group of German soldiers break open and share a bottle of cognac.Years later i bought this film on vhs.The sound was very muffled,the picture flickery,and the scene of the soldiers drinking the cognac was not there.Later i upgraded to dvd and bought a region 1 copy of this film.The picture and sound was a lot clearer and their was a moment showing one of the soldiers drinking from the cognac bottle.Now this film has been released on blu-ray and what a treat it is.This is the version of the film i have been waiting for since that television showing in 1969.The picture is crystal clear and sharp,the sound clear without any noise or hiss,and the missing sequance in the film.There are also many other brief moments inthis version which i have not seen elsewhere before.Obviously a lot of time and effort has gone in to remastering and cleaning up the film.This is the best version of all quiet on the western front that we are likely to get.The digi book is a treat,as are the extras on the disc.The film has lost none of it"s power and impact after 80 years.If anything,blu ray only adds to the power of the film with it"s clarity and sharpness.Thank you universal for giving us this release and treating the film as the masterpiece it is.T o update my earlier review,i have just been comparing this version directly with the dvd copy i have.The difference is amazing.My dvd copy is flickery,muffled and hazy compared to the crystal clear clarity of the blu-ray edition.If their was any argument for upgrading to blu-ray,then this film is it.To fully appreciate this film as the masterpiece it is,then i encourage you to see it on blu-ray.
