Heaven

 (2002)

Heaven Blu-ray offers decent video and poor audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

A woman takes the law into her own hands after police ignore her pleas to arrest the man responsible for her husband's death, and finds herself not only under arrest for murder but falling in love with an officer.

For more about Heaven and the Heaven Blu-ray release, see Heaven Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Cate Blanchett, Giovanni Ribisi, Stefania Rocca, Vincent Riotta
Director: Tom Tykwer

Heaven Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Echo Bridge's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray of Heaven's imagery (cinematography by Tykwer's usual collaborator, Frank Griebe) leaves much to be desired. Black levels are acceptable, colors are properly saturated, and detail is superior to what we would see on a DVD—which is hardly an acceptable standard for Blu-ray. Fine detail is somewhat smudged, which appears to be a function of grain reduction: not so-called "DNR", but a roll-off of the high-frequency information that contains image detail. This would be consistent with the unnecessarily low bitrate of 19.65 Mbps and a disc image of 16.3 Gb. Heaven has not been overcompressed so much as stripped down more than necessary for the sake of an image that resembles video instead of film.

A light amount of artificial sharpening has been applied as well, consistent with the "video not film" philosophy. It's not enough to cause obvious ghosting, but it adds to the obvious impression that someone wanted this disc to look like that latest thing in HD video. They failed, and they lost the film-like look in the process.


Heaven Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

In a distressing return to its earlier practices, Echo Bridge has released Heaven on Blu-ray with a lossless stereo soundtrack, formatted as DTS-HD MA 2.0, even though the film was released theatrically with a 5.1 mix. The initial DVD release in 2003 included the original 5.1 track. As 2.0 tracks go, it's a perfectly serviceable affair, with clear dialogue and good fidelity for the spare musical score consisting of selections composed by Tykwer, Arvo Pärt and several others. Heaven's soundtrack is deliberately simple, and it has been long enough since I last saw the film that I cannot now recall how much more of a sense of immersion the 5.1 track provides. Still, we shouldn't have to guess. The original audio track should have been provided.
