Actually, there are some pretty obvious errors there - such as the fact that the viewer in the theater isn't Lavant, it is Carax

Pro-B

Edit. And I see one of the readers even mentions it.

I was sort of thinking that it wasn't Lavant. Was the intention of that scene to be the last of the appointments the night before? Or was it to set the film in motion?

This is a great deal (waiting for my copy to arrive), but be aware that the UK version available through Zavvi and The Hut is region "B" locked.

Watched the UK release last night and I disagree with the reviewers grade on the PQ on the UK release.

There is a lot of banding, especially in the first scene, and I don't know if it is an encoding error or part of the film, but around the 1:22:16 mark, the image slowly breaks up completely, macro blocking, decolourisation, etc. And then returns to normal. I have tested the disc on multiple players and displays, and still get the same results. Also there is quiet a bit of noise.

The bitrate of 20.00Mbps average is too low for this digitally shot film. Shooting digitally is prone to banding, but it should have been dithered or given a fake layer of grain. The restrictions of Blu-ray, really do bring these issues out, due to its limited colour depth range.

Anyone else encountered the breakup?

The majority of the film looks great. 4/5 for PQ overall.
