Back to 1942

 (2012)

Back to 1942 Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

A North Henan landlord embarks on a pilgrimage to Shaanxi province during the 1942 famine, struggling to survive as war with Japan looms on the horizon. His house beset by starving villagers, Landlord Fan endeavors to calm the crowd by preparing a feast. But his house is burned down in the chaos, prompting Fan, his teenage daughter Xing Xing, his servant Shuang Zhu, and his tenant Hua Zhi on a treacherous journey south. Along the way, encounters with an American journalist, a judge, and a priest who has lost his faith reveal the true depth of the despair that grips the country. But the hardships along the way prompt Fan to make some devastating sacrifices that leave him a broken man.

Back to 1942 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Back to 1942 is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.39:1. This is a curiously bland looking high definition presentation, one that offers very good fine object detail but which has been desaturated to a point where it almost seems like it's a "colorized" black and white film. The CGI here is kind of middling as well, looking pretty soft and offering unconvincing animation at times, especially when it comes to things like flames. The film is best when it offers extreme close-ups in decent light, but a lot of the film takes place in dark and dank confines, which prevents the image from really popping in any overwhelming way.


Back to 1942 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Back to 1942 features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix in the original Mandarin. (I should point out that I am going by what Well Go USA has listed on the Blu-ray and this label has made errors before in misidentifying Cantonese as Mandarin. As I am not a native Chinese speaker, I must defer to this information until or unless a native Chinese speaker can tell me otherwise.) Fidelity is excellent throughout this track and surround activity is also quite consistent. The film has a nice balance of boisterous sequences, including the riot in the opening moments as well as a major Japanese attack later in the film, but it also ventures into much more quiet, dialogue driven episodes that are also presented cleanly and effectively. The film has some requisite LFE but is fairly reserved overall in its use of low end effects.
