From Up On Poppy Hill

 (2011)

From Up On Poppy Hill Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Umi Matsuzaki, the eldest sibling in a close-knit family of five, raises a pair of signal flags everyday at her seaside house in Yokohama Bay without fail in anticipation of the return of her father, who went missing in action during the Korean War. In school, Umi finds herself involved in a student movement seeking to prevent the demolition of an old club house. In the process, she falls in love with the newspaper club president Shun Kazama, only to find out that they might be related by blood.

From Up On Poppy Hill Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

From Up on Poppy Hill is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of GKids and Cinedigm with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1 This is another beautifully animated offering from Ghibli, though it's manifestly different from some of the elder Miyazaki's works in content, style and tone. With a solid basis in a real time and place, the animation here still tends towards a slightly Impressionistic look with regard to the backgrounds, which are often blurred and smeared to look like the paintings that Umi also engages in, but which are rendered here with gorgeous, almost palpable, texture. Characters are sharp as a tack, with excellent line detail (though the mouths are kind of odd and two-toned when the characters speak). The colors utilized span the gamut from really lovely Van Gogh yellows to vivid reds and blues. The interior of the Latin Quarter is an especially amazing piece of animation, with a really incredible assortment of knick knacks stashed in every conceivable corner of the building. And the water, so important to the story, is given a really lustrous, shimmering quality which pops beautifully in this high definition presentation. There are one or two anomalies that need to be noted, all having to do with some of the railings on boats as they pass by in the water. Now, Ghibli may have animated them to pulse and shimmer the way they do, but my hunch is these are probably some very minor stability problems, especially since this only occurs when the camera is panning.


From Up On Poppy Hill Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Despite "only" offering DTS-HD Master Audio 5.0 mixes in Japanese and English, From Up on Poppy Hill features incredibly immersive and in fact rather surprisingly boisterous mixes which don't really suffer from an obvious lack of extreme low end. Rather interestingly, this time it's the Japanese mix which is decidedly pumped in amplitude when compared to the English. It's especially noticeable during music cues, but is certainly there during dialogue segments as well. Both of these tracks have some great surround activity. The opening of the film shows boats entering and leaving the harbor, and there are some evocative horns that call out across the sound field. Later, when Umi is fixing breakfast for her family and the other boarders, as more and more people enter the room, the side channels start to kick in and then when Umi's complaining little brother talks out of frame, he's clearly heard at a distance. The somewhat anachronistic stride piano that opens the film also sounds clear as a bell, with no ringing or brittleness. Ambient environmental sounds, always so important in Ghibli films, are emphasized again here, from the distant sounds of the harbor to the zooming wheels of Shun's bicycle. The interior of the Latin Quarter is also awash in surround activity as a glut of voices descend from the many balconies surrounding an inner atrium. Dialogue is very cleanly presented and well prioritized in the mix, though occasionally the music tends to slightly overpower things. This film perhaps has a bit less dynamic range than some of Ghibli's more overt fantasy offerings, but there is still quite a variety to be heard here, albeit on a slightly less extreme scale.
