Music of the Heart

 (1999)

Music of the Heart Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A single mother of two young children, whose husband left her for a family friend, leaves the security of her small hometown and moves to East Harlem and begins teaching violin to support her family. She didn't have extensive experience to offer the school; she had her talent, her determination, and her violins. At first, the kids, the parents, and the principal were skeptical. But, Roberta taught with such passion that it was infectious and soon her young violinists were manifesting incredible results. Despite her success, after 10 years of teaching, the Board of Education eliminates her position due to budget cuts, and Roberta fights back. Based on the true story of Roberta Guaspari-Tzavaras and her passion for teaching.

Music of the Heart Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Music of the Heart features a somewhat disappointing high definition transfer. At best, it's an adequate image and at its worst in need of a whole lot of TLC. Generally, the image looks quite pasty and flat; there's no grain, intricate skin textures are largely nonexistent, and only basic details on clothes and surfaces are present. Clarity is decent, but the image suffers from some occasional softness both around the edges and, occasionally, center frame, including runny, unfocused, and wobbly opening titles. Colors are a bright spot; the palette certainly isn't robust but it's never dull and the transfer displays various hues on clothing and backgrounds nicely enough. A few edge halos are present, as are a plethora of pops and speckles that cover the entirety of the film. This is far from being an unwatchable transfer, but it's something of a disappointment next to some of the other, better transfers released by Echo Bridge of late.


Music of the Heart Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Music of the Heart's DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtrack is rather superficial. It's a basic sort of track with little range and good, but not great, clarity, a shame for a movie that's all about music. The good news is that the general musical elements aren't bad. The track finds some very nice, smooth violin notes, whether solo play and rehearsal or big concert sounds at a school performance or inside Carnegie Hall. The track finds a jolt of energy when a Pop tune blares into the stage with solid energy and very good clarity during a chapter eleven montage; the music practically dances right out of the speakers, the result of a nice combination of volume and accuracy. Some of the other heavy sound effects, scattered as they may be, don't rate quite so highly. A train rumbling across the stage comes across as little more than a blob of loud sound, and the din of yelling schoolchildren fighting over the newly arrived violins offers little in the way of authentic clarity. Fortunately, dialogue is clear and largely robust. This is far from a total loss of a track, but a superior presentation would do wonders for the overall experience.
