A Simple Life

 (2011)

A Simple Life Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent 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.

A Simple Life Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

A Simple Life is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. From the look of the screenshots and the analysis offered by my colleague Dr. Svet Atanasov, this appears to be the same transfer that graced the British Blu-ray release of this film. Those of you who regularly read my reviews know I am not an especially rabid fan of the look of Red One shot features due to the somewhat flat and textureless appearance these features often have (something that some others of you who read my reviews may find odd, since I am relatively untroubled by the moderate use of DNR on some catalog releases). That said, A Simple Life boasts a spectacularly clear and precise looking image with more than abundant fine detail, especially in close-ups (which Hui favors throughout the film). A Simple Life is intentionally rather drab looking quite a bit of the time, with an emphasis on browns and beiges that mean there isn't a lot of "wow" inducing palette here that the high definition presentation can really exploit. But given the constrained visual look Hui was going for, this Blu-ray looks rather elegant and crisply well defined.


A Simple Life Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Simple Life is by its very nature a rather quiet, subdued film, and so there's not a whole heck of a lot that the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track has to offer in terms of overwhelming immersive qualities and spectacular effects. That said, what's here is rather artfully put together, with subtle but effective discrete channelization afforded to ambient environmental effects (there's a nice sense of depth even in the hospital and nursing home scenes). Dialogue is very cleanly presented and the minimal but affecting score also spills generously into the surrounds. This is not a "showy" track by any stretch of the imagination, but it very capably supports this film's intimate approach. For the record, there is also a standard Dolby Digital 2.0 track available as an audio option.
