When Pauline's mother tries to intervene and split the girls apart, they bring about a terrible revenge, resulting in what is to this day still a celebrated and controversial case.

Heavenly Creatures Blu-ray, Video Quality

  n/a

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Peccadillo Pictures.

Note: I was informed by the British distributors that a few early Blu-ray copies have a manufacturing defect - instead of gravitating at around 30 MB per second, the bit rate would be at approximately 9/10. The copy I received is one of these defective discs. Therefore, I will only offer some generic comments in my review as I don't feel comfortable addressing the picture quality in detail without having seen one of the good discs.

Perhaps the only positive thing I could say about the high-definition transfer is that it allows some of the close-ups to breathe (see screencapture #5). However, there are numerous traces of post-production sharpening that make the film look quite harsh. This is particularly obvious during the daylight scenes (see screencapture #4) where detail is also notably compromised. There is mild to moderate background shimmer as well, but I cannot categorically state at the moment whether it is part of the high-definition transfer or or a byproduct of the improper encoding. However, I feel very conformable stating that the color-scheme is vastly superior to that of the old R1 SDVD, which Miramax released in the United States. The blues and reds, in particular, look quite good. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA in order to access its content. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Heavenly Creatures Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English Dolby Digital 2.0. For the record, Peccadillo Pictures have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The fact that the Blu-ray does not contain a loseless audio track of some sort is indeed rather disappointing. Clearly, the film demands one because Peter Dasent 's score has a very important role. There are various sound effects during the dream sequences that also would have benefited a great deal. This being said, the dialog is consistently crisp, clean, clear, and easy to follow, as well as free of pops, cracks, or hiss. Optional English subtitles should have been included as I assume that some viewers would likely find the accents in the film a bit distracting.
