I've never heard of that film but I'll probably check it out. I like to see more silents on Blu-ray.

Re: The Official Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Thread

Awesome lineup, but I really wish MoC would go the Criterion route and announce the titles all together with extras on a specified date every so often. Tired of just getting hints little by little and then wondering about disc specs and extras. Good news is good news though.

I should have check discs for those momentarily. I wish I had a Blu-ray drive so I could do caps.

Couer Fidele sounds to have the smallest dts-HD MA track ever... some DVD dts tracks have a bigger file...

Re: The Official Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Thread

Coeur Fidele has a very sparse piano score, so a small audio track is fine, it sounds wonderful. The image quality is absolutely astounding, too. You won't believe it unless you see it.
