A Late Quartet

 (2012)

A Late Quartet Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Music-based drama directed by Yaron Zilberman in which a world-renowned string quartet from New York must come to grips with the thought of losing one of their members. After being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, Peter (Christopher Walken), the eldest of the group, expresses his wish to leave. As his departure threatens the future of the quartet, so does the breakdown of Robert (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Juliette (Catherine Keener)'s marriage. Tensions increase further when Robert becomes dissatisfied with his position as second violinist, while first violinist Daniel (Mark Ivanir) becomes involved with Alexandra (Imogen Poots), Robert and Juliette's much younger daughter.

For more about A Late Quartet and the A Late Quartet Blu-ray release, see A Late Quartet Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

A Late Quartet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Late Quartet was shot digitally using Arri Alexa cameras and anamorphic lenses, so the transition to Blu-ray comes rather easily, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation that's sharp, strong, and free from distractions. At most, you may notice some thicker source noise during darker scenes, but the image really does hold up well to pixel-peeping scrutiny. Close-ups are especially crisp—see the screenshot of Philip Seymour Hoffman crying in the shower—and the picture overall is nicely resolved, revealing ample skin and clothing texture, like the weft of Alexandra's knit cap. Likewise, the color grading is balanced, unobtrusive, and largely realistic, while still carrying the punch of good contrast and hue density. (Although there are a few scenes, where shadow detail seems a bit crushed.) DNR and edge enhancement are not concerns, and neither are there any obvious compression artifacts. There are two or three spots where you might spot some slight aliasing on violin/cello strings, but only when they're shot from a long distance. Overall, the picture seems true to both source and intent. No issues here.


A Late Quartet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

For the most part, A Late Quartet is a quiet, dialogue-centric film, with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track to match. Voices are clear, unmuffled, and balanced at the top of the mix in the front speakers, while the surround channels are often used for low-level environmental ambience— usually street sounds or other outdoor noises. Where the lossless track really becomes worthwhile is in the clarity and depth of the film's music, particularly The Fugue's climactic performance of Opus 131. From the deepest cello rumbles to the highest soaring violin line, the strings sound fantastic —dynamic, lively, and with a great sense of room-filling presence. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles for those who need or want them.
