The Air I Breathe

 (2007)

The Air I Breathe Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A businessman bets his life on a horse race, a gangster sees the future, a pop star falls prey to a crime boss, and a doctor must save the love of his life. Based on an ancient Chinese proverb, these four overlapping stories dramatize the four emotional cornerstones of life: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love.

Starring: Forest Whitaker, Brendan Fraser, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kevin Bacon, Andy García, Jon Bernthal
Director: Lee Jieho

The Air I Breathe Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Image Entertainment presents The Air I Breathe on Blu-ray with an adequate 1080p, 2.40:1 high definition transfer. Much of the transfer, especially in the first segment of the film, has a very nice, realistic, sharp, clean look. I wouldn't call it "cinematic," but there is a sense of realism in the look of the film, despite some darker sequences, that made this a fascinating watch. Along with this realism comes fairly high detail; objects appear pleasing to the eye and realistic, be it a silver lamp on a desk or Andy Garcia's tan colored coat covered in fuzzies. Film grain is to be found here, especially when we're looking at the film's darkest scenes. Black levels are generally solid, but the darkest scenes that exhibit the most grain tend to look slightly gray. Despite the sometimes dreary look of the picture, colors can be vibrant and healthy; the palette never becomes overblown or dulled, and everything from blues to whites to darker colors appear fairly natural. Nevertheless, the film's darkest of scenes do tend to obscure the image and fine details can become lost in the background, but I would attribute this to the film's lighting scheme rather than a poor transfer. Perhaps the only major complaint I have with the transfer is that it never "pops" off of the screen. The director-intended image itself doesn't necessarily lend itself to a Saawaryia-style of three-dimensionality, but even the brighter, more vibrant scenes are never truly eye-catching brilliant. Flesh tones appeared to be solid, but several select scenes appeared somewhat soft around the edges. On the whole, this is a passable Blu-ray transfer that isn't all that memorable (then again, neither is the visual look of the movie), but this is likely to be the best you'll see The Air I Breathe look for quite some time.


The Air I Breathe Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Air I Breathe debuts on Blu-ray with a surprisingly effective DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The edgy, trendy music heard over the opening credits has a wonderful room-filling effect. It bleeds into the rears but is decidedly focused in the front and especially in the center channel. Dialogue seemed to be presented a bit low in volume at times, and I struggled to hear it on occasion. There is a solid surround presence throughout that is palpable but not obtrusive, proving to be the perfect mix for this style of movie. The heavy beats of the music following the horse race in the "Happiness" segment are nearly foundation-rattling in power. There are many instances where the music becomes a heavy, pulsating, "Techno," percussion-based beat, and all instances of this style of music sound fantastic throughout this sound mix. A rain shower scene in "Pleasure" creates a nice, enveloping sound, and a subsequent scene involving an overwhelming crowd of photographers around "Pleasure" provides a unique listen that just might give the less-than-famous of us a chance to feel what it must be like to be hounded by the paparazzi. This is by no means a top-notch lossless soundtrack, but it's surprisingly effective and efficient and one that plays very well with the movie's story and visuals.
