Cinema Paradiso Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Cinema Paradiso flickers onto Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.64:1. Anyone who saw this film theatrically or in its previous home video releases will know that it features a rather soft, often diffuse, image, and that continues with this latest high definition release. The opening sequence, which is further hampered by the opticals of the credits, looks distressingly soft, but things improve dramatically after we get past the brief prologue featuring Salvatore's mother and then the adult Salvatore and his girlfriend. Once the film gets into the bulk of its flashback segments, colors are nicely saturated and the image, while not mind blowingly sharp, is certainly a major step up from the old DVD releases. Fine detail is best in close-ups, as is to be expected, but some of the establishing shots of the town and its inhabitants pop rather nicely, all things considered. Grain structure is also well intact, and in fact some viewers may be bothered by some of the overly grainy sequences, especially in the more dimly lit scenes. The film does suffer from some noticeable edge enhancement and fairly consistent crush in the dark interior scenes.


Cinema Paradiso Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Cinema Paradiso never had a very aggressive sound design, and that lack of a "wow" factor carries through to the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono mix (in the original Italian, with optional subtitles) offered on this Blu-ray. There's nothing horrible about this mix in any way, shape or form, other than its obvious narrowness. Dialogue is crisp and clear and Ennio Morricone's achingly evocative score sounds fantastic. The film is rather small scale, from a sound design standpoint, and while a 5.1 repurposing may have added some space and depth to the crowd scenes inside the theater, or a couple of sequences in the town square, otherwise there probably wouldn't have been much to gain from such a surround revision. Fidelity is very strong, with excellent dynamic range, and the soundtrack has no damage to report.
