A Simple Life

 (2011)

A Simple Life Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Roger is a successful movie producer with a housekeeper, Ah Tao, who has worked for his family over the course of four generations. Ah Tao has been a nanny and maid for Roger's family for nearly all her adult life, and he looks upon her as a member of the family rather than an employee. When Roger comes home one day to discover Ah Tao has suffered a severe stroke, its' clear she's no longer up to the demands of her job, and he agrees to help her relocate to a nursing home. Roger, the only member of his family still living in Hong Kong, is eager to help, but he's unsure of just how much he's supposed to do for her and is afraid to seem neglectful; Ah Tao, on the other hand, doesn't want to be a burden to Roger, and their relationship goes through an awkward period.

For more about A Simple Life and the A Simple Life Blu-ray release, see A Simple Life Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

A Simple Life Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Ann Hui's A Simple Life arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Films.

Shot with the Red One Camera, A Simple Life looks simply astonishing on Blu-ray. During close-ups definition and clarity are very impressive, allowing one to see even incredibly small objects and facial details (see screencapture #1). Larger panoramic shots also boast tremendous depth, both during nighttime and daylight sequences (see screencaptures #3 and 18). Color reproduction is fantastic - there are beautiful warm and very natural blues, greens, grays, and browns; the blacks are lush and stable. There are no traces of problematic lab tinkering. Compression is also very good. Purely transfer specific anomalies, such as banding and aliasing, are also nowhere to be seen. To sum it all up, this is one of the very best presentations of a contemporary Hong Kong-made film that I have seen to date. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


A Simple Life Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Arrow Films have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is excellent. Despite the fact A Simple Life is primarily a dialog-heavy feature, there is a very good range of nuanced dynamics. Law Wing-fai's soft ambient score is only occasionally felt, but the sequences where the music becomes prominent are indeed quite beautiful. The dialog is exceptionally crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. Also, there are no pops, dropouts, or distortions to report in this review. The English translation is very good.
