Pina

 (2011)

Pina Blu-ray delivers great video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost. Homage to late choreographer Pina Bausch (1940-2009), a leading influence in the development of the Tanztheater style of dance. Bausch was the artistic head of Tanztheater Wuppertal, a German group that fuses modern dance with theatrical flourishes into a kind of hybrid art form.

For more about Pina and the Pina Blu-ray release, see Pina Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Director: Wim Wenders
Starring: Regina Advento, Malou Airaudo, Ruth Amarante, Pina Bausch

Pina Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Criterion's Blu-ray release of Wim Wenders' Pina contains the original 3D version of the film as well as a standard 2D version. They are placed on two separate Blu-ray discs.

I think it is fair to say that to really understand what the German director wanted to accomplish with Pina one needs to watch the 3D version of his film. For once it is obvious that the technology was used with proper understanding of its advantages and limitations, and the final result truly is quite spectacular. The image depth and dimensionality are enormously impressive, with select sequences basically placing the viewer amongst the dancers. Clarity is also outstanding, especially during the stage dances. Colors are incredibly lush yet natural. Furthermore, there are no image anomalies to report in this review. However, while the encoding is indeed very good, I think that the camera positioning has a lot to do with the film's impressive visual style. I went back a couple of times to see some of the most beautiful dances and it is now pretty clear to me that Wenders did not experiment during the shooting of the film. Every single sequence is shot with a clear understanding of how to maximize the advantages 3D offers and avoid the technology's limitations.

There are no serious technical issues to report with the 2D version of the film. Detail and to a certain extent clarity are both excellent, but the type of dimensionality the 3D version of the film offers is missing. I also think that to a certain extent shadow and light are better captured on the 3D version. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Pina Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

A German DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track (with portions of other languages) is offered for the 2D and 3D versions of Pina. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is excellent. It has a wide range of nuanced dynamics that enhance the film's unusual atmosphere very well. Thom's prominent soundtrack benefits greatly, but random sounds also impress (the sequence with the falling water on the stage is a good example). There is good surround movement as well. The little dialog that is heard in the film is stable, clean, and easy to follow.
