Mother and Child Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Mother and Child features a wonderful 1080p Blu-ray transfer. This digitally-shot film looks great, surpassing most other digital features -- whether shot on high end equipment or mid- to low-grade gear -- and oftentimes looks almost as good as film. Sony's image is a bit flat and glossy by nature, but it's also crisp and incredibly detailed, capturing every wrinkly line on older characters' faces wile picking up every small texture in clothing and other materials seen throughout the film. Colors are natural, bright, and very well balanced; flesh tones appear accurate and black levels linger around perfection. Slight banding knocks the score down by half a point, but otherwise, Sony's Blu-ray transfer is much like the film: simple but beautiful. There's no flash and pizazz here, but this is one of the steadier and most faithful high-def video transfers on the market today.


Mother and Child Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Much like its splendid video presentation, Mother and Child's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is quietly effective. The picture is made up of nothing more than dialogue, light music, and slight atmospherics. It's all handled primarily by the front three speakers, but effectively so. Music and dialogue both are perfectly clear and accurate, with the former spreading out a bit to the sides while the latter remains centered, both infinitely pleasant and supporting the movie about as well as can be expected. Atmospherics are incredibly light and not very pronounced in terms of sheer volume. Still, they're so wonderfully integrated into the soundtrack that even something as inconsequential as the ticking of a clock manages to instantly and for the duration of a scene perfectly convey the room's atmosphere. Other such nuanced effects are scattered around the film and played with equal precision. Mother and Child's lossless soundtrack is limited in range to be sure, but it handles the picture's spartan sound design wonderfully in every scene. Don't equate a high score with an action-packed extravaganza; Mother and Child is certainly not that, but Sony's lossless soundtrack handles all that's asked of it with pinpoint clarity. The film's sound design may be routine, but this is routine done as well as it may be done.
