Nope, it's VC1 like the French BD and most likely the same disc.
Regards! :D

Try stretching the dvd image to match the same size as the BD caps and you'll see a difference!
I think it looks great.

Aye, but it's very very minimal! Oh, anyway, the DVD was superb, so the improvement is not so noticeable.

Maybe you're joking, but that's not interlacing, it's an optical effect.

Many thanks, Rowan! This appears to be much better than I feared.

Sorry, I've seen it only once, I can recall nothing! I'm glad it's only an effect.

Dan, I thought you were kidding! Yes it's film effect. If it was interlacing, it would be the worst example of it EVER :D

I posted some impressions in the Studio Canal thread. In motion, especially on the projector, the blu makes all the difference - isn't that what the format is really about?

Point is, this isn't the disaster it could've been and many feared (see HDDVD).

India Song by Marguerite Duras. Scandinavian DVD from Atlantic Film, 2010. PAL format; most likely region 2; French audio; optional subtitles in Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, and Finnish; no special features. Looks open-matte to me.

I've used Totem Movie Player in Ubuntu to take these captures, and I have no idea if that program is actually any good. I'm fairly sure I've never changed any of its settings, for what it's worth.

Seems comparable imagewise with the French subbed Carlotta CAMELIE (in their MA set with RED DESERT & CRONACA DI UN AMORE)...
