Barbara

 (2012)

Barbara Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Set in East Germany in the early 1980s, the new film from renowned director Christian Petzold (Jerichow) is a suspenseful chamber piece about an accomplished Berlin physician, banished to a rural hospital as punishment, who is torn between the promise of escape across the border and her growing love for a fellow colleague — who may be planning to betray her to the secret police.

For more about Barbara and the Barbara Blu-ray release, see Barbara Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Rainer Bock, Christina Hecke, Jasna Fritzi Bauer, Mark Waschke
Director: Christian Petzold

Barbara Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080/50i transfer, Christian Petzold's Barbara arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Indigo.

Note: Even though the transfer is flagged as 1080/50i, it is actually progressive. So, there is no motion-judder and interlacing.

Excluding some extremely light banding that I noticed early into the film (the sequence where Barbara sits on the bench to have a smoke before she enters the hospital), the film looks solid in high-definition. Close-ups boast excellent definition and consistently pleasing clarity (see screencapture #5), while the wider panoramic shots convey very good depth (see screencapture #3). Contrast levels are stable. From start to finish color reproduction is enormously satisfying - there is a wide range of well saturated, natural looking greens, blues, browns, grays, and blacks. No attempts have been made to apply problematic sharpening corrections. Compression is also solid. For the record, there are no serious stability issues to address in this review. To sum it all up, Barbara looks lovely on Blu-ray, and I am convinced that those who have been hoping to get an English-friendly release of it will definitely be pleased with the technical presentation. (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).


Barbara Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc. German DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and German Dolby Digital 2.0. For the record, Indigo have provided optional English and German SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless is solid. Barbara is primarily a dialog-driven feature and clarity and crispness are quite impressive. There are a couple of sequences where Stefan Will's music score is felt, but the atmosphere is indeed quite subdued. Surround movement is minimal at best. The English translation is excellent.
