Hemingway & Gellhorn Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Photographed with the Arri Alexa by Rogier Stoffers, the Dutch cinematographer who shot director Kaufman's Quills, Hemingway & Gellhorn owes its final appearance to post-production manipulation even more than most contemporary films, as a result not only of the digital trickery that inserts the actors into archival footage, but also of the constant shifts in palettes and appearance. Each locale has a distinctive color scheme, and editor Walter Murch constantly modulates between a contemporary "you-are-there" style and a historical, "old newsreel" look, complete with scratches and print damage.

HBO's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray accurately captures these shifts, which is to say that the contemporary footage is colorful and detailed, and you're much more aware of both qualities when they reappear after having been leeched out of the image digitally for the historical look. Black levels and contrast are accurate, and the only artifacts in the picture are those that have been deliberately placed there to simulate aging or damaged film. In numerous respects, the image on Hemingway & Gellhorn is a tribute to the capabilities of digital cinema to replicate—and even extend—the capabilities of film. The work of Kaufman and his collaborators on this project should be taught in film schools.


Hemingway & Gellhorn Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Hemingway & Gellhorn won well-deserved Emmy Awards for its soulful score by composer Javier Naverrete (Pan's Labyrinth) and for its elaborate sound editing. Both are thrillingly represented on the Blu-ray's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track. The sound editors have carefully coordinated their work to match Murch's editing choices. Listen, for example, to the forceful impact with which Hemingway strikes the death blow to a huge fish he lands in his opening scene, which provides a key transition to his first meeting with Gellhorn.

Sound effects specific to each of the film's exotic environments have been deftly woven throughout, and often amplified for special emphasis; a notable example is the Hemingways' meeting with General and Mrs. Chiang Kai-shek (Larry Tse and Joan Chen), where the noises of the General's dining habits are more noteworthy than anything he says (which isn't much). Of course, the wartime sounds are the most dramatic, and the aerial bombardment of Madrid by Franco's forces registers with tremendous impact, especially for systems equipped with a subwoofer. However, the quality of the sound editing is revealed by how little the experience resembles an action film sequence. The impacts are abrupt, sharp and unnerving. There is nothing "thrilling" about them. The same is true of every scene relating to war.

Equally fine sound work can be heard in the Hemingway home in Cuba, where cats are always howling; in the editing room in New York where Ulrich's documentary film is completed (and Hemingway fires Orson Welles as the film's narrator); and at the party following the film's premiere, where Hemingway gets into a fight with a critic. Every one of these environments has been sonically reconstructed. Meanwhile, the dialogue and voiceovers remain clear and distinct, and Naverrete's score casts its spell over the entire affair.
