Take This Waltz Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The first thing you'll notice about the picture here is that sometimes it's very realistic-looking, while elsewhere the tonal grading features candy-colored oversaturation. Skies go a Sweet Tarts blue. Reds are pushed to cherry. Sunlight streams in intense yellows. Pool water becomes an almost ridiculous turquoise. According to an interview with Sarah Polley in the making-of documentary, this is highly intentional—it seems to reflect the sensory overload of falling in love—but it's also distractingly unnatural at times, and I think a more consistent, tempered approach would've worked better. In all other respects, though, this is a great 1080p/AVC-encoded Blu-ray presentation. Take This Waltz was shot digitally using the Panavision Genesis high definition camera, resulting in crisp, clean footage that's nearly noiseless in all but the darkest scenes. There's simply no need for heavy DNR or edge enhancement. If you can get past the sometimes too vivid palette, color pops with strong density—no wishy-washy-ness here—and the slightly ramped up contrast carves out a very dimensional image. The picture is consistently sharp as well, with fine detail resolving nicely in closeups and even many longer shots. I didn't spot any noticeable compression or encode issues—everything looks, for better or worse, just as intended.


Take This Waltz Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Take This Waltz swings onto Blu-ray with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that's surprisingly engaging for what's essentially a low-key, talky indie romance. The difference here is that it's clear someone paid close attention to the sound design, filling just about every scene with the appropriate ambience and spreading it throughout all 5.1 channels. The rear speakers frequently come alive with activity, from outdoorsy noises like wind and insects and seagull cries, to the neighborhood clamor of sprinklers and light traffic. It all sounds clear and grounded and realistic. The onscreen drama is paired with a wonderful score by Jonathan Goldsmith, who utilizes lots of atypical instrumentation—quiet tones and chimes. The film also makes great use of "Video Killed the Radio Star," by The Buggles. Dialogue is consistently clean and comprehensible throughout, and the disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles for those who might need or want them.
