Thale Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Definitive information on Thale's shooting format was not available, but the appearance is obviously that of digital video. To my eye, it appeared to be high-end consumer-grade equipment rather than a professional system such as the Arri Alexa or one of the Red cameras, but the result on XLrator's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is a satisfyingly clean and detailed image with reasonably solid blacks and well-saturated primary colors in scenes that are fully lit. In the many scenes in the underground rooms, a sickly yellow or green cast tints everything, because the illumination is poor, and the effect contributes to the sense of claustrophobia and danger. The images of the surrounding forest in the outdoor scenes are breathtakingly detailed and beautiful, but also forbidding in their sense of isolation and coldness.

The film's running time is short, and the only extra is a trailer. At an average bitrate of 28.77 Mbps, compression artifacts are not an issue.


Thale Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The sophistication of Thale's sound editing is demonstrated not by showy surround effects, but by the careful layering and alternation of the dialogue (and breathing) of the two main characters with the various sounds that issue from the recorded tapes they find in the abandoned cabin basement, as well as the otherworldly sounds that issue from Thale herself. In outdoor scenes, there are distant (and also nearby) rustlings that pass quickly through the sound field and are meant to have an unsettling effect. A sequence near the end that cannot be described without spoilers has been carefully edited to converge the sounds of two scenes occurring simultaneously into one aural event. All of this sound work has a natural and effective presence on the Blu-ray's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track, which includes the original Norwegian dialogue. I presume the dialogue is clearly conveyed but do not have the linguistic knowledge to form an independent judgment. An English dub track is available in Dolby Digital 2.0, but when I sampled it, I found the voices wholly unsuitable to the characters of Leo and Elvis.

The sparse musical accompaniment is credited to Raymond Enoksen and Geirmund Simonsen, who have extensive credits in Norwegian TV.
