Beyond the Hills

 (2012)

Beyond the Hills Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Dark Romanian drama following two young women at odds with their past. Voichita (Cosmina Stratan)'s new life at an isolated convent is threatened when her old friend Alina (Cristina Flutur) appears in the hopes of taking her to Germany. At first they are happy to be reunited but Voichita begins to infuriate Alina with her new found faith and refusal to bend to her will, causing their relationship to deteriorate. Not only does Alina's presence cause disruption to Voichita but the whole community feels the strain of her ungodly ways and they begin to believe she is possessed. Alina then falls victim to the religious order of the convent and is forced to withstand a series of exorcism attempts at the hands of the priest (Valeriu Andriuta).

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

Beyond the Hills Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Cristian Mungiu's Beyond the Hills arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Artificial Eye.

Excluding some extremely light banding that quickly appears early into the film, the presentation is indeed very impressive. Depth and detail are excellent during close-ups and wider panoramic shots. Clarity is also outstanding. Even the nighttime footage looks terrific (see screencaptures #16 and 17). Color reproduction is also enormously pleasing. There is a wide range of strong and natural colors that never collapse or feel boosted. There are no traces of problematic lab corrections. Also, there are no serious transfer specific anomalies to report in this review. Overall image stability is also terrific. All in all, this is a near flawless presentation of Beyond the Hills that should make fans of director Mungiu's work very happy. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Beyond the Hills Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: Romanian DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Romanian LPCM 2.0. For the record, Artificial Eye have provided imposed English subtitles for the main feature (they cannot be turned off from the main menu or with the remote control). They appear inside the image frame.

Depth and especially clarity are excellent. Even seemingly random noises are incredibly crisp and easy to identify (the wind blowing in the back, chatter, a car engine, etc). Surround activity is extremely limited, but this such is the film's original sound design. The dialog is exceptionally crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. Also, there are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review. The English translation is excellent.
