Ce monument de l'histoire du cinéma a raflé dix oscars. Adapté d'un spectacle théâtral, West Side Story transpose l'histoire de Roméo et Juliette à New York et oppose des Blancs à des Portoricains. A sa sortie en 1961, le film provoque l'effet d'une bombe et bouleverse par sa modernité la traditionnelle comédie musicale. Musique et chorégraphie sont en parfaite osmose. Les numéros de danse, dirigés par Jérome Robbins, sont réglés au millimètre près. Le superbe ballet "America" est un véritable morceau d'anthologie. Nathalie Wood et Richard Beymer sont de touchants amants déchirés par la haine raciale. Mais l'excellent danseur George Chakiris, dans un second rôle, leur vole la vedette et s'impose par sa fougue et sa spontanéité. --Marie-Sylvie MaufusVoir l'ensemble des Description du produit

Aujourd'hui, adulte, j'ai goûté pleinement la modernité de cette magnifique transposition libre de "Romeo and Juliet" dans le New-York des années 60. Car cette comédie musicale est définitivement moderne de par les thèmes abordés, la musique, la chorégraphie. Un souffle nouveau s'emparait de la jeunesse de l'époque, et c'est cette modernité-là qui a traversé les décennies.
C'est vrai que par certains aspect de la mise en scène, ou par la façon dont les chansons sont interprétées, ça a un peu vieilli, mais pas trop mal!!! Ce film a vraiment bien mérité ses 10 Oscars!
La version BLU-RAY apporte une belle image , par contre au niveau du son je recommande la bande son en anglais avec les sous titre en français car il y'a une grande différence de qualité entre le moment des chants et les moments ou ils parlent.
The greatest love story ever told... in the most acclaimed musical of all time... is now on Blu-ray! Experience every sensational song, dazzling dance number and magical movie moment of West Side Story in sparkling high definition with pure 7.1 digital sound – along with fascinating special features created exclusively for this 50th Anniversary Edition!

Andrew’s Blu-ray Review: ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ is without question one of the most iconic, undeniably powerful, and memorable films ever released. The idea behind the production was an act of genius in and of itself: taking the tried and true formula of William Shakespeare's prodigious work known as Romeo & Juliet and adapting it into a modern day setting. Jerome Robbins monumental musical brought forth enough flair in style and heart of wonder to capture the imaginations of even the most cynical of film goers and film critics upon the theatrical release in 1961 and now 50 years ago. There are few films that manage to be so awe-inspiring in scope. West Side Story has the distinction of winning 10 Academy Awards® and including Best Picture, which is the most ever for a film musical.
The film lays out some ground rules for the story from the beginning as two rivalling gangs in New York known as the Jets and the Sharks begin to demonstrate their immense displeasure with each other by evoking these negative sentiments with a perfectly choreographed song and dance number. The gang form replicates the original rivalry of Romeo & Juliet found between the Montagues and the Capulets.
This is a love story, of course, between two young star-crossed lovers from different backgrounds and who must struggle with the lack of acceptance from those who surround them. Tony [Richard Beymer] was the former leader of the Jets gang, and now he's looking for a brighter tomorrow without gang life interfering with a newfound spirit for renewal and growth. Maria [Natalie Wood] is the beautiful young woman who captures Tony's heart. Maria has inner-beauty that matches her outwardly gorgeous looks and she falls in love with Tony with an equal level of intensity and immediacy. Conflict inevitably arrives when Bernardo [George Chakiris] learns that his younger sister is involved with former Jet leader Tony. Bernardo is the gang leader of the Sharks.
The performances in ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ are brilliant and uncannily captivating across the board. Both lead performances by Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer are remarkable achievements. Beymer was cast in one of his most memorable roles of his career and Natalie Wood added another excellent performance to her already long list of achievements (including her child performance in the original ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ and a performance against James Dean in ‘Rebel Without a Cause’). The supporting cast of actors helps the foundation of the film dramatically with great performances by Russ Tamblyn as the new Jet leader Riff (who is close friends with Tony), George Chakiris as Bernardo, and Rita Moreno as Bernardo's feisty and intelligent girlfriend Anita. George Chakiris and Rita Morena both received well deserved Academy Awards for their sensational performances.
There are two essential double-bill aspects to ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ that have continued to be so impressive after all of these years following the debut: the collaborations in music that combined the efforts of an undeniably jazz-infused Leonard Bernstein and the up and coming brilliant lyricist Stephen Sondheim, and the directing efforts from both Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins (who also choreographed the film). Robbins deserves the most recognition though, as he conceived of the original play and lent the best of his choreography on a level that had never been captured before and hasn't been since. Either double bill aspect concerning this massive and unrelentingly complicated production is purely wonderful and worthy of acclaim. The music sweeps viewers off their feet and captures the essence of romance and love while the energetic, stylish direction and the majority of which was done by Robert Wise, and choreography done entirely by Jerome Robbins, and brings some of the most captivating cinematic visuals around.
Who cannot forget the opening dance number by the Jets, the spinning visual-effects of Maria to a new dance number with countless energetic dancers, the silly rooftop dance that celebrates and critically dissects both the promise and disappointments found by minorities living in America? Attempting to even pick a favourite scene or sequence can lead to some problems: every scene is so beautifully and expertly crafted that it almost seems more appropriate to simply select a personal favourite from the bunch. The mid-way rushing of frantically scattering gang members, the long silence, and the slanted camera-work might be one person’s pick, but how about the simple but elegant dance between Tony and Maria? There are so many perfect moments. The execution of this production is almost flawless.
There are some minor detractors as it is hard to imagine new audiences of ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ not having at least some difficulty accepting the fact that Natalie Wood is playing a Puerto Rican. The racial issues are actually inherently important to the story of ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ itself so the unmistakable fact that there is a racial issue in the film is sadly disappointing nonetheless, but for those who can overlook this aspect it should still be worth recognizing that Natalie Wood delivered a fantastic performance that continues to be enchanting. It is important to remember the historical context of when the film was produced within the Hollywood studio system and to appreciate positive elements without overlooking negative drawbacks.
The history of this film is so interesting. It was a huge undertaking for everyone involved, most notably Jerome Robbins, who was eventually fired from the film despite being the largest source of its creative energy. The film surprised audiences worldwide. It was such a tremendous hit, and no one expected it to take everything by storm the way it did. The film continues to amaze audiences after half a century. The play version is performed worldwide through schools and theatre production companies. Even for those who haven't seen the film, there is a clear distinction of the importance of ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ and of the music that brought it to life. There is not even a single film out there quite like it and that continues to make it even more special and enduring. ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ is all about love between two unlikely souls, the love for theatre, as represented through this stunning cinematic tour-de-force, and the recognition of the importance of overcoming racial issues and understanding the commonalities between people of different backgrounds.
Set to the lush cinematography of Daniel L. Fapp, West Side Story is pretty much as the early advertisements for the film claimed: "As other movies age ... ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ gets younger!" In other words: it's a timeless classic.
Blu-ray Video Quality – ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ arrives on Blu-ray with an almost immaculate looking transfer – which is great news as it was filmed with 70mm cameras. In one word: incredible. Fans of the film will be hard-pressed to find an element of dissatisfaction. The colours are so vivid; the contrast so accurate, the cinematography brilliant, and the overall feel of the high-quality production is almost perfectly captured. The image clearly hasn't been tampered with by annoying "picture-quality enhancing" shortcuts. Make no mistake: this Blu-ray is the best presentation of ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ on home media. The film is presented in an awesome 1080p encoded image in the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.20:1.
Blu-ray Audio Quality – The audio presentation doesn't skimp out on any trimmings either. The film is presented with a glorious 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio presentation that captures the music in all its magnificent glory. The dialogue is also well reproduced on this Blu-ray release and sound directionality is well used for both the score and songs. Other Audio options available as stated above.
Blu-ray Special Features and Extras:
Blu-ray Film [1080p] and DVD Bonus [PAL]
DISC 1 [Blu-ray]:
Special Feature: Comment on the songs by Lyricist Stephen Sondheim: This is somewhat fascinating and somewhat depressing. Steven Sondheim seems to offer a view on his lyrics that is negative, overly harsh, extremely unflattering, and thoroughly interesting all at the same time. He apparently doesn't feel quite as confident in his own lyrics as his fans do. Sondheim does share a great deal about how or why he created some of the lyrics to his songs and he gives good information about the overall process.
Special Feature: Karaoke (Voice Original) Music Machine [1080p] [1:25:07] This is a video jukebox of all the film's musical sequences. Each song/sequence can also be accessed individually.
Special Feature: POW! Dances from West Side Story [1080p] [19:00] All new feature in which cast members, contemporary filmmakers, dancers and choreographers analyse and illuminate the film's famous dance sequences. With a fantastic 19 minutes’ worth of footage for 6 specific scenes in the film including Prologue; Dance At The Gym; Tony And Maria's Cha Cha; America; The Rumble and Maria's Roof Dance, and they can also be viewed separately.
DISC 2 [DVD]:
Special Feature Documentary: Memories of West Side Story  [60:00] This is an original recordings of Natalie Wood, interviews with team members including Robert Wise and Stephen Sondheim. It gives us a broad look at the making of the film and the troubles it went through, including the firing of Jerome Robbins and the replacement of Natalie Wood's vocals with those of Marni Nixon.
Special Feature: Storyboard to Film Comparison Montage [4:50] This is a brief but interesting video collection of storyboarded drawings that were used to capture the essence of select scenes or moments before being filmed.
Special Feature: Photo Shooting [480i] [4:50] This is a Storyboard to Film Comparison Montage.
Theatrical Trailers: Original Theatrical Trailer; Original Issue Trailer; Reissue Trailer and Animated Trailer.
BONUS: A Beautiful Designed Exclusive Deluxe Limitied Edition DigiBook. Here you get lots of brilliant stunning Colour and Black-and –White photos and an Introduction by Producer Walter Mirisch. You also get different sections entitled: “LA PETITE HISTOIRE DE WEST SIDE STORY;” “UN FAUTEUIL POUR DEUX;” “BERNADO, TONY ET RIFF;” “MARIA ET ANITA” and “NEW YORK NEW YORK.” [French wording].
Finally, ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ is one of the great landmarks of cinema. It is the perfect blend of theatricality and cinematic wonder. The performances amaze, the direction mesmerizes, and the musical songs are totally beautiful and have become classic songs that live forever. ‘WEST SIDE STORY’ is a landmark film which pushed the boundaries of the American musical art form. Five decades later it doesn't just hold up, it stands tall as one of the best movies ever made. This Blu-ray presentation doesn't quite reach those comparatively giddy heights, however. The transfer looks great at times but it's slightly hamstrung by the original printing artefacts, and some modern anomalies have also left their mark. The sound is quite lovely in terms of quality and retains the directional dialogue, but sadly the 7.1 surround field is utterly wasted. The extra features aren't as wide-ranging as one might hope, yet there's just enough here to satisfy. Here be warned about the strange fade to black during the Overture, which maybe was a small mistake that will surely be remedied at some point with another Special Edition. But despite this, with this Blu-ray release, it has made the film look totally fresh, in thinking it was made in the 21st Century, as the filming was so dramatic and with the fantastic cinematography, bring musical score and amazing tuneful songs, this film was worthy of all its plaudits and has now gone pride of place in my Blu-ray Collection. Of course sadly the wording in this DigiBook is all in French, but the colour and black-and-white images make up for it, as well as the brilliant DigiBook luxurious presentation. Very Highly Recommended!

Il est vrai que "West Side Story" est loin d'être la seule de ses compositions à mériter d'être connue.
Quant au film lui-même, il est remarquable à tout point de vue, et on ne le regarde jamais sans émotion, surtout quant on sait que plusieurs de ses auteurs et interprètes ont aujourd'hui quitté ce monde.
Je sais que certains regrettent que le DVD n'ait pas été réalisé à partir du film d'origine avec son en 5.1, mais cela viendra peut-être un jour !
Plus jamais je n'achèterai via ce vendeur.
Un seul bémol : la piste originale de l'époque (6 pistes, déjà !) a été retrouvée depuis cette réédition. Alors un collector ultime à venir ? En tous cas l'expérience actuelle est déjà fabuleuse...
