Melancholia Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Lars von Trier's Melancholia arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Artificial Eye.

The high-definition transfer is truly outstanding. In fact, I am so impressed with the quality of the presentation that I would go on record here and say that we will be discussing Melancholia again at the end of 2012, when the year's best releases are mentioned.

Detail is fantastic. I think that some of our screencaptures suggest how striking this film looks, but clearly do not tell the whole story. The prologue, in particular, looks absolutely incredible - the clarity and crispness levels really seem to be testing Blu-ray's potential. Later into the film the outdoor sequences also look wonderful - fine object detail is remarkable and clarity impeccable (see screencapture #5). Some of the close-ups have the type of depth seen in high quality digital photographs but without the that familiar sterile, often cold look. Color reproduction is also very impressive. The variety of blues, greens, reds, browns, and especially yellows look remarkably rich but at the same time natural (see screencapture #11). There are also some outstanding special effects that further enhance the striking scenes at the end of the film. Finally, there are no aliasing, banding, or other transfer-related issues to report in this review. All in all, Melancholia is without a doubt the first truly impressive release of 2012. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Melancholia Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Artificial Eye have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is also enormously impressive. The prelude to Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde, for instance, sounds remarkably rich and full, enhancing the dreamy atmosphere in a way that really cannot be described with simple words; the range of subtle dynamics here is truly outstanding. Elsewhere, random small noises (animal sounds, vibrations, etc) are incredibly easy to hear. The dialog is crisp, clean, clear, and exceptionally easy to follow.
