A Royal Affair Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Royal Affair glides onto Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that faithfully captures the film's hazy period mood. Shot on 35mm, the grain pattern of the image is sometimes gritty and noticeable from a normal viewing distance, but it's always natural-looking and untouched by digital noise reduction or other types of filtering. The slightly chunky film stock is actually a good fit for the intended atmosphere; it gives the picture a warmth and tangibility that it might not otherwise have if it were shot digitally. Compression doesn't seem to be an problem—I didn't spot any artifacts, banding, or blocking—and the image is entirely free from debris. If the picture is a little soft outside of closeups, I suspect that's an intentional aesthetic choice; regardless, tighter shots do display finely resolved textures on skin and clothing—see the abundance of ruffles and lace—and there's never any doubt that you're looking at a high definition presentation. Likewise, some might point to the screenshots and complain that the color looks somewhat thin, with the flat contrast of grayish shadows and wispy highlights, but this is certainly the intended look for the grading, and in motion it's very effective at selling a specific vibe. No real issues here.


A Royal Affair Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is as evocative as the cinematography. While certainly never action-heavy or intricate when it comes to dynamics and sound design—this is a fairly quiet costume drama, after all—the mix has a refined sense of ambience and acoustics, frequently using the complete soundfield to generate an aural sense of place. The murmuring of nobles at a court dinner, the wind blowing through the rear speakers, the pounding rain and claps of thunder—it's all engaging and complements the moving images nicely. The music too is wonderful, with The English Patient composer Gabriel Yared and Splice's Cyrille Aufort joining forces for the film's lush orchestral score. Cutting through all this, the Danish dialogue is always clean and sharp. (Trivia: While the characters in the film speak Danish, the royalty and aristocracy of the late 1700s in Copenhagen would've been speaking mainly French and German, with Danish relegated to the commoners.) The disc includes optional English, English SDH, and Spanish subtitles, which appear in easy-to-read white lettering.
