Breaking and Entering

 (2006)

Breaking and Entering Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Jude Law plays Will, a landscape architect who succeeds in business but finds his personal life is tougher to navigate. He has been with Liv for years, but it's difficult to connect with her due to her worry over her teenage daughter. When Will catches a teenage boy named Miro breaking into his office, he chases the thief home. He later meets the boy's mother, a Bosnian refugee played by Juliette Binoche. His anger at Miro is quickly transformed into attraction to his mother, further complicating his relationship with Liv.

Breaking and Entering Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with VC-1 and granted a 1080p transfer, Anthony Minghella'a Breaking and Entering arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Miramax/Buena Vista.

In a lot of different ways this Blu-ray disc is rather unusual. First of all, much to my disappointment, Breaking and Entering was never released in the United States. So, for someone who follows Juliette Binoche's work very closely, it was quite unfortunate to have to wait and hope for a domestic release. Eventually, just as I did with Cédric Klapisch's Paris, I obtained the European Blu-ray disc, as it became clear that the Weinstein Company will not be releasing it in the US. This being said, Breaking and Entering is also the first title from Miramax, that I have seen, to use the VC-1 codec.

The quality of the actual transfer, however, is up to Miramax's high standards. Breaking and Entering is a very recent film and, not surprisingly, detail and clarity here are of exceptionally high quality. Contrast is also impressive - the daylight scenes are vibrant and extremely rich, while the nighttime scenes are free of film noise and very impressive. Furthermore, I did not detect any evidence of heavy DNR manipulation either. On the contrary, Breaking and Entering boasts a very natural, highly detailed, look with a strong, notably nuanced, color-scheme. The quality of the actual print is also solid - I did not detect any debris, spots, or dirt marks. Finally, neither edge-enhancement nor macroblocking appear to be issues of concern with the print Buena Vista offer. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" title which you will not be able to play on your Region-A PS3 or SA Also, the Blu-ray disc allows you to set up the entire menu system in one of the following four languages – English, Italian, German, French).


Breaking and Entering Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As revealed in the video synopsis, Breaking and Entering was designed to be a Pan-European release. With other words, it was meant to be sold in a number of different markets. Not surprisingly, just as the disc allows you to set up your own menu, in a preferred by you language, in the audio department you will find a number of different language tracks that you could choose from. The following audio options are available: English: Uncompressed 5.1, English: Dolby Digital 5.1, German: DTS 5.1, German: Dolby Digital 5.1, Italian: DTS 5.1, Italian: Dolby Digital 5.1 and French: DTS 5.1. I opted for the English Uncompressed 5.1 mix, and generally speaking, I had a very pleasant experience. First of all, Breaking and Entering is a beautifully composed film with plenty of panoramic vistas from London. There are also a lot of warm, notably intimate, scenes with a variety of close-ups. The reason I mention all of this is because, in a lot of different ways, the audio structure of Anthony Minghella's film closely follows the mood of the main characters – the manner in which they fall in love, how they get angry, how they forgive etc. As a result, you will notice that there are a variety of different tunes here that are intelligently blended with the visuals. This being said, the uncompressed 5.1 track does an excellent job of enhancing the nuanced audio structure I described above. There are some marvelous ambient tunes that I heard coming off my speakers, which were most definitely not detectable on my R1 SDVD courtesy of the Weinstein Company. Furthermore, dialog was crystal clear and extremely easy to follow. There is also quite a bit of activity in the rear channels, mostly when the beautiful soundtrack is on, and I am convinced that you will be very pleased with it. In addition, I did not detect any hissing, pops, or cracks to report here. Optional English, French, Italian, and German subtitles are provided and they appear inside the image frame.
