Playing by Heart Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Playing by Heart's oddly-framed high definition transfer is no work of Blu-ray art. From the outset, the image takes on a muddled, bland, dim, washed out appearance. Darker shots look as though they're being smothered by a haze, and brighter ones don't fare significantly better. The image is terribly flat and unnaturally smooth; grain is practically nonexistent, and details lack any sort of refined texture, showing only basic shapes and the sort of clarity and vibrancy normally associated with standard definition material. Colors fare little, if any, better. They're uninspired to say the least, never brilliant and quite drab in most instances. Black levels take on a pale and washed out appearance, and flesh tones, too, never find a positive, natural balance. The image shows some light banding in a few places, but additional unwanted anomalies aren't included in any real excess. This one's watchable, but it's pretty far removed from the best Echo Bridge has to offer.


Playing by Heart Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Playing by Heart earns a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack, but it lacks that sense of rich fullness and natural clarity of similarly encoded and superior presentations. Overall, the track proves quite weak, yielding muddled musical notes and a distinctive lack of energy. It does offer a fair amount of front end spacing with a noticeable surround element to the opening music, though this certainly isn't a track one would use to showcase precise musical reproduction. Granted, some of the dance club background music should come across as somewhat cluttered and sloppy to help recreate the effect, but even through score there's a disappointing lack of natural presence. The track does produce a few scattered moments of fair surround immersion; falling rain isn't purely spaced but the scattered entire-stage effect proves satisfactory. Most of the track takes the shape of dialogue, which fortunately comes through clearly enough and remains the property of the center channel for the duration. This is a somewhat sloppy track, but it's good enough to get listeners through the film with the basic elements coming through adequately enough.
