Merry-Go-Round

 (2010)

Merry-Go-Round Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A dying drug addict ran away from San Francisco to Hong Kong, to meet up with a net friend she had never met. However, the one she ran into was an ill-tempered old man, who lived as a recluse at Tung-wah Coffin Home. A Chinese herbal physician, who had been staying in San Francisco over decades, decided to return to Hong Kogn when a deed was delivered by courier to her. The owner of a traditional herbal shop in Hong Kong, was a lad who hated to carry on his family business. He came to himself on account of three women. The world changes so swiftly, things we were once familiar with could just vanish in no time. A chance encounter with strangers could bring new horizon to their lives. You can always acquire a new life regardless of your age. You just have to believe.

For more about Merry-Go-Round and the Merry-Go-Round Blu-ray release, see Merry-Go-Round Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.



Merry-Go-Round Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Gorretti Mak and Clement Cheng's Merry-Go-Round arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Kam & Ronson Enterprises.

I would argue that Merry-Go-Round is the most beautifully lensed contemporary Hong Kong film to be released on Blu-ray in 2010. There are certain sequences in it that look quite incredible, on par with what one would expect to see in a Wong Kar-Wai film. Fortunately, the high-definition transfer Kam & Ronson Enterprises have used for their Blu-ray release of Merry-Go-Round also happens to be one of their very best.

The outdoor scenes look wonderful. The image has tremendous depth and fluidity, while color reproduction is just about perfect. The blues, greens, yellows, browns, and blacks look fresh and natural but at the same time remarkably rich. There are a couple of scenes where Eva is seen wandering around and thinking about her past that truly look like moving pictures (the memory flashbacks have a light, gentle yellowish tint that makes them look dated). Edge-enhancement is never an issue of concern, though I did notice some mild sharpening early into the film, when Merry first meets Uncle Hill. Severe aliasing or banding, however, do not plague the high-definition transfer. As the screencaptures I hope reveal, heavy filtering has not been applied either. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review whatsoever. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Merry-Go-Round Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (with portions of English). For the record, Kam & Ronson Enterprises have provided optional English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track handles the film's trendy soundtrack quite nicely. The long guitar solos, for instance, are lush and well rounded, while Merry's voice truly fills up the room. The bass, however, rarely comes alive. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow. For the record, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review. This being said, the English translation could have been a lot better. I noticed a number of small spelling and syntax errors.
