Tetro Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 31Mbps), Tetro looks outstanding in high-definition. As I stated earlier, Coppola is the type of director who's so confident in his craft, that he'll throw all manner of visual style into his productions. Some may find this tampering intrusive or unnatural, but I love the bold statements he conveys in the compositions of various shots. Certainly some credit should be given to the cinematography of Mihai Malaimare Jr., who accepts both the honor and difficulty of working on such a visually demanding picture. To give you some idea of what you can expect from this Blu-ray edition of Tetro, we have approximately 80% of the film set in the present day and shot entirely in black and white. The other 20% consists of vintage color film stock that's cropped on both sides to symbolize home video photography during flashback sequences of Tetro's youth. Intermixed in these segments is ballet footage (also in color), which incorporate a blown-out, vivid color palette, lending an almost surreal look to dance-infused storytelling method. I know this likely reads like something out of a dream, and is difficult to visualize in a paragraph assessment, but the end result is a true feast for the eyes. Detail offers excellent clarity, black levels possess ink-like depth, and contrast never displays a hint of weakness. There's a fine layer of film grain permeating the dark background of several scenes, but I doubt many viewers will find it the least bit distracting.

Given the stylistic absence of color through the majority of the film, I wasn't sure what to expect from the high definition offering of Tetro. Now that I've witnessed the artistic style of the carefully crafted shots, and marveled at the contrasting splashes of color used sparingly throughout the feature, I'm extremely happy with Lionsgate's effort on this release.


Tetro Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

For a film built solely around dialog and music, Tetro incorporates a wonderful sense of depth and immersion. Bringing back the same composer who worked with Coppola on Youth Without Youth (Osvaldo Golijov), the film score nearly becomes a an individual character within the story, conveying emotions associated with innocence, tragedy, comedy, and companionship. On occasion, the jazz-inspired numbers are cast aside in favor of sweeping operatic pieces that correspond with the onscreen ballet segments. This contrasting style can be a bit jarring at first, but when you consider the unnerving nature of the overall story, the dichotomy seems fitting. From a dialog standpoint, the audio mix never misses the mark, creating a volume balance that carries appropriate weight next to other elements in the mix. There are several moments when environmental effects take a prominent role that extends beyond the rear surround stage, but they act as placeholders for symbolic moments in the story (such as the creak of a door handle, or the bone-crunching sound of a motor vehicle accident), and never felt out of place.

In the end, this is a fine audio presentation that may surprise some viewers. The drama genre isn't well-known for robust auditory delivery, but Tetro manages to break from those conventions in all of the right ways.
