Tabu Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Miguel Gomes' Tabu arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors New Wave Films.

Excluding a few tiny flecks, Tabu looks simply fantastic on Blu-ray. In "A Lost Paradise", depth and fluidity are outstanding. Contrast levels are stable and color saturation wonderful. "Paradise" is grainier, boasting a slightly less-contrasty look. Light and shadow are also beautifully captured here. There are no traces of excessive denoising. Problematic sharpening corrections have not been performed either. Compression is also very good. Unsurprisingly, when blown through a digital projector Tabu looks simply gorgeous. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Tabu Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Portuguese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Portuguese LPCM 2.0. For the record, New Wave Films have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The difference between the two tracks is minimal at best. Depth is slightly better on the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track where the music is heard, but otherwise the fluidity is practically identical. The dialog/narration is exceptionally crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. Additionally, there are no problematic audio dropouts to distortions to report in this review.
