Happy Together

 (1997)

Happy Together Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung, two of Hong Kong's biggest stars, play a pair of gay lovers living out the waning days of their relationship as expatriates in Buenos Aires. Together with Australian Christopher Doyle, Kar-Wai's longtime cinematographer, the director discovers a city rich with diverse cultural influences. Happy Together reveals a corner of the world alive with intimate colors and an astonishing array of sounds. Even more striking, though, is the way that such an international collaboration begins to life a romance that is both realistic and universal. Ho and Lai are characters who are instantly identifible, who play the roles and experience the dynamics that all couples go through in the course of a relationship. Lusty tango bars, the salsa music of the La Boca sidewalks and the hypnotic vision of the nearby Igauzu Falls gives further dimension to the tensions growing between the two lovers.

Wong Kar-Wai (Chungking Express, Fallen Angels) has made with Happy Together his most accomplished work: A modern film, made by an auteur with a distinctive signature, which contains equal amounts of cinematic beauty and penetrating drama. Here, Kar-Wai has crafted a rare art film that cements his international reputation as a world-class director.

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

Happy Together Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

A few months ago, Kino International finally gave Fallen Angels the home video treatment it had long deserved, and Happy Together looks even better, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that near-perfectly reproduces Wong Kar-Wai and cinematographer Christopher Doyle's visual whirlwind of color and texture. As in Chungking Express and Fallen Angels, Doyle uses a multitude of film stocks and processes here, and the effect is an aesthetic that seems at once more experimental and more emotionally unified than both previous films. The monochromatic scenes that open Happy Together are striking, with deep blacks and brilliant whites, evocative of early- 1960s New Wave. Where Doyle comes into his own, though, is the way he captures—in color—dingy backrooms, kitchens lit with bare fluorescent bulbs, and low-light nighttime exteriors. Colors are wild and saturated, contrast is pumped, and everything looks more real than real. My only complaint about this transfer—and, really, it barely qualifies as a complaint—is that the encode sometimes can't quite handle the depth of the more vibrant reds, resulting in a little bit of blotchiness. Otherwise, I'm in love with the picture quality of this release. The film's grain structure is fully intact, there's no evidence of digital manipulation of any kind, and clarity is exceptional. After several less-than-satisfying DVDs versions—and that's putting it mildly—this Blu-ray release of Happy Together is definitely something to be happy about.


Happy Together Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While not as drastic an improvement as the picture quality, the film's soundtrack gets a significant bolstering on Blu-ray thanks to a strong Cantonese-language DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix. The defining audio characteristic of the film is definitely the music, and it sounds wonderful here, from the Frank Zappa tunes to the slinky tango numbers by Astor Piazolla. The sound design and overall clarity seem somewhat limited by the on-location source recordings, but acoustically there's a nice sense of place, the effects are clean, and the rear channels pipe up frequently for ambience. You'll hear an 18-wheeler rumbling through the rears, the clatter and clang of pots in a Chinese restaurant's kitchen, and barroom chatter and music, among other place-establishing sounds. Voices can occasionally be overwhelmed by the chaos of their surroundings, but most of the dialogue is perfectly mixed. For the record, I didn't notice any hisses, pops, crackles, or drop-outs. Optional English subtitles are available in easy-to-read white lettering.
