Stalingrad

 (1993)

Stalingrad Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In the spring of 1942, German troops advanced deep into the Soviet Union en route to Stalingrad. Hitler seriously misjudged the tenacity of the Red Army and was convinced that the city could be conquered before winter. Ordinary foot soldiers, inadequately clothed and without sufficient food, struggled just to stay alive. Abandoned by their leaders, Nazi troops froze and starved to death in a conflict that left over one million dead. Stalingrad graphically depicts this turning point in World War II as a vast tableau of horror in which the average German soldier was as much a victim of Nazi evil as the Soviet people.

For more about Stalingrad and the Stalingrad Blu-ray release, see Stalingrad Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Dominique Horwitz, Thomas Kretschmann, Jochen Nickel, Sebastian Rudolph, Dana Vávrová, Martin Benrath

Stalingrad Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Hen's Tooth Video does not do its own transfers, but the master that has been supplied for Stalingrad is excellent. Hen's Tooth's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray reflects a clean source, impressive detail, and a superior balance of black levels and contrast that you very much appreciate when the weather turns wintry and many scenes are dominated by snow all around. (The production filmed in Finland to simulate the Russian winter.) Fine features of faces, uniforms and rubble are equally good in both dark areas (more common in the early parts of the film) and bright ones (more common after winter arrives).

The film's palette switches from a dull, dingy earth-toned mix, dominated by military green, prior to the onset of winter, to a chilly mix of whites, grays and blues after the cold takes over. Strong, saturated colors are almost non-existent, because they would suggest too much vitality. The film has three credited cinematographers, which is probably due to the multiple locations.

The film has been mastered on a BD-50. Compression and other artifacts were not in evidence. The only point to give one pause is that there's little visible evidence of a grain structure. Now, since there's also no indication that any fine detail has been scrubbed away—no waxy faces no loss of detail or other telltale signs of high-frequency filtering—this may be the film's authentic look, but that would certainly be unusual. If any degree of grain reduction has been applied, it has been done expertly, with the kind of high-end tools typically used in today's DI suites.


Stalingrad Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Blu-ray for Stalingrad offers two soundtrack options, the original German language track and a dubbed English version. Both are provided as DTS-HD MA 2.0. While IMDb claims that Stalingrad was released in Dolby Digital, the claim is suspect given the fact that the film appeared just six months after the launch of DD in theaters. The film itself bears the Dolby Surround logo, and it's far more likely that this was the release format, in which case the lossless 2.0 version is correct. In any case, when the 2.0 soundtrack is played through a good surround decoder, it provides substantial environmental presence and even noticeable surround activity, especially in a sequence like that at the Pitomnik airport, where planes are taking off and banking.

The artillery and tank fire of the battle scenes conveys an impressive sense of havoc. Although the bass extension isn't as deep as it would be with a dedicated LFE channel, it still makes enough of a statement that, combined with other registers, you experience the bombardment as an assault on the senses. My German is good enough to vouch for the clarity of the German dialogue; I did not sample the English track. The alternately military and tragic score by German composer Enjott Schneider is muddier than it would be with a discrete 5.1 mix, probably as a result of having to share two channels with all the sound effects, but it's still effective.
