Mona Lisa Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Like the other HandMade titles being released on the 24th by Image Entertainment, Mona Lisa sits on a single-layer, 25 GB Blu-ray disc, with a small file size and a low bit-rate. Extrapolate from this what you will, but subjectively, the film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is far from ideal. There's a good deal of compression noise on this disc, and not just during the darker scenes—although nighttime sequences look worst, as blacks are covered by a chunky mix of artifacts, film grain, and, at times, slight macroblocking. The film is noticeably in high definition—and there are occasionally crisp moments where it's easy to spot fine texture—but most of the time it looks very soft and indistinct. Although there's certainly more detail here than was present on the Criterion or Anchor Bay U.K. DVDs, the difference isn't drastic. Color is nicely balanced and reproduced, though, with strong reds and a generally realistic palette. Black levels are never truly satisfying, however, this is mostly due to the noisy compression problems and not a contrast-related issue. I can't help but feel that Mona Lisa—and the other HandMade titles being released—could look a lot better.


Mona Lisa Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

This is odd. The back of the case claims that Mona Lisa has a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and my PS3 confirms as much, but I can't recall hearing anything in the rear channels during the film. I even popped in a different movie afterwards to make sure my speakers were functioning properly. This track isn't front-heavy, it's front-exclusive. It's better, then, to think of this as a 2.0 mix, and as such, it sounds okay. Obviously, the ambience and immersion you expect from a 5.1 track is missing, but otherwise the film has a strong, well-balanced blend of music, effects, and dialogue in the front channels. Aside from a light hiss that accompanies a few scenes, the track is clean, dialogue is easy to understand, and there are no fatal drop-outs or crackles. English SDH subtitles are available in easy to read white lettering.
