Elena

 (2011)

Elena Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Elena and Vladimir are an older couple, they come from different backgrounds. Vladimir is a wealthy and cold man, Elena comes from a modest milieu and is a docile wife. They have met late in life and each one has children from previous marriages. Elena's son is unemployed, unable to support his own family and he is constantly asking Elena for money. Vladimir's daughter is a careless young woman who has a distant relationship with her father. A heart attack puts Vladimir in hospital, where he realizes that his remaining time is limited. A brief but somehow tender reunion with his daughter leads him to make an important decision: she will be the only heiress of his wealth. Back home he announces it to Elena.

For more about Elena and the Elena Blu-ray release, see Elena Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Elena Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Andrei Zvyagintsev's Elena arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors New Wave Films.

From start to finish the film looks very crisp and sharp. There is a wide range of very well saturated cool colors. The outdoor footage, in particular, looks fantastic - depth and fluidity are simply superb (see screencapture #5). There are no traces of problematic lab tinkering. When projected, the film also remains very tight around the edges. There is some extremely light banding that I noticed during a short sequence early into the film, but its presence is far from distracting. There are no serious purely transfer-specific anomalies to report in this review. To sum it all up, Elena looks quite impressive on Blu-ray. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Elena Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Russian DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Russian LPCM 2.0. For the record, New Wave Films have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The film is complimented by a beautiful score by award-winning composer Philip Glass (The Qatsi Trilogy). Thankfully, the lossless 5.1 track allows the strings to shine in all the right places. Surround movement is limited, but there are important sounds and noises that are exceptionally well defined. The dialog is crisp, always stable, and very easy to follow.
