Howards End

 (1992)

Howards End Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Howards End is a thought-provoking, luminous vision of E. M. Forster’s cutting 1910 novel about class divisions in Edwardian England. Margaret Schlegel, a flighty yet compassionate middle-class intellectual whose friendship with the dying wife of rich capitalist Henry Wilcox (Anthony Hopkins) commences an intricately woven tale of money, love, and death that encompasses the country’s highest and lowest social echelons.

For more about Howards End and the Howards End Blu-ray release, see Howards End Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Howards End Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, James Ivory's Howards End arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

Supervised by cinematographer Tony Pierre-Roberts and approved by director James Ivory, the high-definition transfer for Howards End has been created on a C-Reality Datacine with Oliver Wetgate processing from the original 35mm interpositive. The result is a vibrant, terrific looking transfer that will surely impress fans of this beautiful film. Detail is excellent, clarity outstanding, and contrast very convincing. The large panoramic shots from the British countryside, in particular, are terrific. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not an issue of concern. Neither is digital noise, though I spotted a bit in the very beginning of the film. There are no traces of heavy filtering - film grain is very much in tact. The overall condition of the transfer is also excellent - I did not detect any disturbing debris, scratches, blemishes, or dirt. Finally, when blown through a digital projector, Howards End remains pleasingly stable. All in all, this is yet another fantastic looking release by the competent folks at Criterion. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" disc. Therefore, unless you have a native Region-A or Region-Free player, you won't be able to access its content).


Howards End Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it (two-line texts appear inside the image frame; three-line texts have the bottom line outside of the image frame).

The soundtrack has been remastered at 24-bit from the 6-track magnetic soundtrack. Crackle has been attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation. Additionally, numerous pops, clicks, hiss and hum have been manually removed.

I have absolutely no reservations with the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track whatsoever. Richard Robbins' lovely score sounds beautiful; it is lush and very dynamic. The dialog is crisp, clear and very easy to follow. There are absolutely no balance issues to report either. All in all, I believe that a lot of people would be pleasantly surprised by the enormous depth of the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, particularly those who have previously seen Howards End on SDVD.
