Breaking Glass

 (1980)

Breaking Glass Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

1980s London punk scene is captured in the gritty new wave musical with poignant rags to riches story of a talented and rebellious young singer-songwriter. Kate is the lead singer of the rock group Breaking Glass. Kate’s socialist ideals are juxtaposed to her pragmatic rock manager's, Danny, a streetwise hustler who discovers her and develops her into a star. The energetic singer, whose talent and sanity are jeopardized by the music business’ power structure, struggles for artistic recognition . Hazel O’Connor wrote and performs 13 captivating and provocative songs for the film.

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

Starring: Hazel O'Connor, Phil Daniels, Jonathan Pryce
Director: Brian Gibson

Breaking Glass Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Breaking Glass arrives on Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is a dark and gritty film which was filmed under verité conditions and shows it. The film is quite grainy most of the time, with a soft and not especially well saturated image. A lot of the dark scenes are hobbled by fairly bad crush, and the grain is so omnipresent in some scenes that the darker sequences tend to drift toward digital noise territory. Contrast is often quite low, though some scenes seem to indicate it was pushed slightly, giving a slightly effulgent glow to some lighting sources. Olive Films, as is its wont, has done absolutely no restoration or digital scrubbing of the print. What that means is that DNR-phobes have nothing to complain about with this release. What that also means is there is a fair amount of specks, flecks, dirt and other damage which dots the frame pretty consistently.


Breaking Glass Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Somewhat surprisingly, Breaking Glass's lossless LPCM 2.0 soundtrack doesn't really bristle with much energy, and in fact sounds kind of narrow and boxy a lot of the time. There are some synch issues, and not only with regard to the musical performances, which tend to point to this film having undergone some serious post dubbing, which may account for some of the anomalies. While O'Connor's music sounds at least acceptable, it never really bursts forth the way it should, and while the low end is there, it certainly isn't at head banging levels. Dialogue fares quite a bit better, with good to very good fidelity. Everything plays out within a very narrow soundfield but most elements are prioritized well and while this track never really reaches for the stars, it manages to at least get airborne a time or two.
