Birdsong

 (TV) (2012)

Birdsong Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

SEBASTIAN FAULKS'S epic love novel set against the First World War has been adapted for the screen for the first time. In two movie-length parts, the story tells of Stephen Wraysford (EDDIE REDMAYNE), a young Englishman who arrives in Amiens in Northern France to stay with the Azaire family and falls desperately in love with Isabelle Azaire (CLMENCE POSY). They begin an illicit and all-consuming affair, but the relationship falters. Years later, Stephen finds himself serving on the Western Front in the very area where he experienced his great love. As he battles amidst the blood and gore of the trenches he meets Jack Firebrace (JOSEPH MAWLE), a tunneller who unexpectedly helps him endure the ravages of war and enables him to make peace with his feelings for Isabelle.

For more about Birdsong and the Birdsong Blu-ray release, see Birdsong Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Birdsong Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

"Birdsong" carries a processed look that's tastefully offered on the AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation. It's a crisp look at all of the dramatics and war zone troubles, providing an intense view of the characters as they march through misery. Detail is excellent, registering powerfully with make-up efforts, keeping bloodshed vivid. Facial textures are always expressive, while backgrounds are easily scanned for additional thespian activity and decorative achievements. Skintones are purposefully washed out to achieve the bloodless look of the miniseries but remain quite human in appearance, especially warm and pink during love scenes. Colors are often muted, favoring brownish and greenish hues, while countryside excursions carry a natural palette. Shadow detail is comfortable, never remarkable, sustaining needed details during tunneling sequences. Some minor ghosting and banding is detected.


Birdsong Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix doesn't make a generous use of the surrounds, lacking a dynamic sense of directional activity and circular intensity. While distances and echoes are maintained, little depth remains. The primary focus is on frontal dialogue exchanges, which sound fresh and deep, carrying targeted qualities of passion, while providing a full feel for accents without any distortion. Scoring is supportive without stepping on the performances, carried softly until needed, filling up the fronts when time arrives to create dramatic points. With bombs bursting everywhere, there's actually a decent low-end to the track, rumbling through with a satisfactory read on explosions, intensifying the violence.
