Shell

 (2012)

Shell Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Shell is a 17-year-old woman who lives and works at a petrol station in the desolate Scottish Highlands. Apart from the occasional customers who call by for fuel, and a few regulars who acknowledge and catch up with her, Shell's only company is her reserved and softly spoken father Pete (Joseph Mawle), to whom she is devoted. A young girl trying to find her place in the world, she is on the cusp of womanhood, struggling to re-imagine her role within her own family and life in general. Pete, meanwhile, is damaged goods. He still keenly feels the absence of his wife, who ran away when Shell was four, while his connection with his daughter is both difficult and disturbing. An assured debut feature starring Joseph Mawle and newcomer Chloe Pirrie, Shell marks the arrival of Scottish writer-director Scott Graham as a distinctive new voice in British cinema.

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

Starring: Chloe Pirrie, Joseph Mawle, Kate Dickie, Paul Thomas Hickey, Michael Smiley, Morven Christie
Director: Scott Graham

Shell Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.25:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Scott Graham's Shell arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Verve Pictures.

Detail and especially clarity are very impressive. The various panoramic shots throughout the film look quite extraordinary - sometimes even extremely small objects are surprisingly easy to see (see screencaptures # 3 and 1). Colors are very rich and stable, never looking manipulated. However, because natural light is captures in a variety of different ways, some minor fluctuations are present. There are absolutely no traces of problematic digital corrections. Compression is excellent. When blown through a digital projector, the image also remains exceptionally tight around the edges of the frame. To sum it all up, this is a beautiful presentation that should please even the most demanding Blu-ray aficionados. (This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 o SA in order to access its content).


Shell Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. Also included is Descriptive Audio tracks (LPCM 2.0). For the record, Verve Picures have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The film does not have an elaborate soundtrack. Excluding the occasional exchanges between Shell and Pete and the people that visit their gas station, there are only random nature sounds and noises. A few times one could also hear passing cars and trucks. Needless to say, dynamic intensity is limited. However, clarity and depth are simply outstanding. For the record, there are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
