Pieta

 (2012)

Pieta Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

In the new film by controversial Korean auteur Kim Ki-duk, a brutal man in the employ of a loan shark is forced to reconsider his violent lifestyle when a mysterious woman appears claiming to be his long-lost mother. But, as his attachment to her grows, he begins to discover the gruesome and tragic secret that made her seek him out.

For more about Pieta and the Pieta Blu-ray release, see Pieta Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jeong-jin Lee, Min-su Jo
Director: Kim Ki-duk

Pieta Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Whatever issues I might have with the film itself, there are no major problems with Drafthouse Films' 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray. Like Graceland , Pieta was shot with largely handheld and easily portable DSLR cameras; the cinematographer was Jo Young-Jik, making his feature debut. The results, after post-processing on a digital intermediate, are sharp, detailed and vividly colorful, whether it's the varied shades of blue, gray and brown of the metal shops in Cheonggyecheon, or the reds that always seem to appear around Jang Mi-son, or the rainbow of colors in the lively districts of Seoul when the main characters venture outside their decaying environs.

The image on Pieta suffers from the same flaw as the DSLR-originated image on Graceland, which is occasional aliasing on horizontal edges. The phenomenon is rare but noticeable when it appears.


Pieta Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The machines of Cheonggyecheon—drills, metal punchers, saws and other assorted industrial devices—are the most notable presence on the lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track. They frequently drown out voices, or require the characters to shout over them. The track's full dynamic range conveys the hum, roar and whine of the various machines with conviction, whether nearby at full volume or in the distance. The sound effects associated with Lee Gang-do's collection activities (pounding on rattling metal, slaps, punches, etc.) are also powerfully conveyed. I cannot vouch for the clarity of the Korean dialogue, but cries, wails and howls of pain are piercing. The score by Park In-young is sparingly used and, for the most part, kept in the background.

A Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 track is also included.
