Rendition

 (2007)

Rendition Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

When Anwar El-Ibrahimi, an Egyptian-American chemical engineer whose family emigrated to the United States when he was a boy, seemingly disappears during a flight from South Africa to Washington, D.C., his pregnant wife, Isabella, does everything she can to find him. She enlists the help of an old college friend, Alan Smith, an aide to Senator Hawkins, who uncovers the shocking fact that Anwar is suspected of aiding terrorists and has been shipped off to a third-world country for interrogation on the orders of Corrine Whitman, the CIA's head of anti-terrorism. Douglas Freeman, a CIA analyst working in North Africa, starts to question his assignment after witnessing the brutal interrogation.

Rendition Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Rendition was shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Dion Beebe (Memoirs of a Geisha), who worked closely with director Hood to develop specific visual styles for the various locales, as described in Hood's commentary. Finished on a digital intermediate, the film arrives on Blu-ray in a 1080p, AVC-encoded presentation whose sumptuous appearance presents an ironic contrast with the frequently grim subject matter.

Sharpness and detail are superior throughout, so that, for example, in the Morocco locations the fine textures of buildings, faces, clothing and landscapes can be discerned even in long and medium shots. Black are deep and true, which becomes crucial in, e.g., an important nighttime sequence in a shipyard late in the film. Colors range from the chilly blues and grays of Washington to the warmer earth tones of the El-Ibrahimi home to the hot siennas and ochres of North Africa; the sole exception is Anwar's prison, where darkness prevails.

As with most films finished on a DI, there is almost no visible grain, but this is inherent in the source (assuming that, as is customary, the source was the DI). High-frequency filtering, artificial sharpening, compression and other artifacts were nowhere to be seen in the moving image.


Rendition Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Rendition's soundtrack, presented in lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1, isn't showy, but it's powerful and effective. Each of the film's different environments has a subtle but distinctive presence that, together with its color scheme, helps differentiate it and orient the viewer as the story shifts among the locales. The streets of the city are alive with the sounds of pedestrians, mopeds, automobiles, peddlers and chatter. The corridors of power are hushed except for the click of keyboards, the ring of phones and the rush of ventilation. The lower levels of the prison are full of eerie echoes, sudden silence and just-as-sudden loud noises.

The dialogue, which is primarily English with some subtitled Arabic, is generally very clear, although a few of the Arabic actors speak English with thick accents. For scoring duties, Hood turned once again to his Tsotsi composers, Paul Hepker and Mark Kilian, who supplied a suitably atmospheric sound, using Middle Eastern instruments and harmonics that provide a mournful and ultimately tragic undercurrent.
