Customer Review

on 8 May 2013
This is a marvelous film, no doubt about it, and it's a great pleasure to view it at 20fps. The slower speed significantly benefits the pacing and weight of each scene. Excellent. This would have been a five star recommendation if not for the fact that the restoration has gone too far in terms of what has been lost from the image. Texture, grain, and depth have all been compromised. The detail in the faces, a fundamental and crucial aspect of this film, has been softened or (in places) virtually removed. This is particularly noticeable when compared to the Criterion DVD, which is certainly rougher, but all that wonderful detail is, I have to say, preferable to this overly cleaned-up version. It's a great pity. This film has had to fight to survive, and while we get closer with every new release, we have yet to hit upon the ultimate faithful restoration. PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC, THE [LA PASSION DE JEANNE D'ARC] (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) [1928]
