Conversation Piece Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (2.35:1 aspect ratio) presentation carries itself gracefully, providing a fresh viewing experience that handles the demands of the soft cinematography satisfactorily. Colors are rich and stable, with the opulence of The Professor's home preserved with hearty reds and golds, while elaborate costuming carries an additional element of varied hues, communicating the generational divide further. Fine detail is scrubbed out to a degree by DNR efforts, but the image retains cinematic flavors, with some facial nuances and make-up additions easy to scrutinize, while fabrics maintain texture. The depth of the production design also makes an impression during this HD event, with the viewer permitted to survey artwork and literary choices, while lens limitation also reveals itself in full. Low-light scenarios bring out some clotted blacks and moderate ghosting issues, but shadow detail is acceptable. Skintones are flush, with pleasing pinks supporting a human feel to these troubled characters. Reel changes are spotted, but the print is largely clean.


Conversation Piece Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA sound mix is a blunt affair, befitting a film nearly 40 years old. The frontal sonic push is comfortable, with a heavy isolation of the Italian dubbing, making dialogue exchanges and emotional purgings easily understood. Scoring is supportive, carrying a decent weight to drive home dramatic points, never intruding on the performances or hitting shrill notes common with pictures of a certain age. While a true sense of bass is missing, the mix brings an accurate read of the effort's passive nature, with silence an important component that's preserved well without intrusive imperfections. The track is not dynamic, but realistically simple and effective. And English mix is available as well, presenting Lancaster and Berger's original audio.
