The Big Picture

 (2010)

The Big Picture Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Paul Exben is a success story - partner in one of Paris's most exclusive law firms, big salary, big house, glamorous wife and two sons straight out of a Gap catalog. But when he finds out that Sarah, his wife, is cheating on him with Greg Kremer, a local photographer, a rush of blood provokes Paul into a fatal error. Standing over the corpse of his wife's lover, Paul knows that his perfect life has gone for good. But by assuming the dead man's identity and fleeing for an isolated part of former Yugoslavia on the beautiful Adriatic coast, Paul gets another shot at being himself and, at last, seeing the big picture.

The Big Picture Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

We can see The Big Picture on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's satisfying and faithful to source. Shot on 35mm, the film's (mostly) fine grain structure is entirely intact and unmodified, with no smeary digital noise reduction or obvious edge enhancement. As you'd hope, there's no print damage or compression issues either; everything looks as it ought to. While this isn't the sharpest 35mm image you'll ever see, clarity is generally very strong, revealing the expected level of fine facial and clothing detail in closeups, especially of Romain Duris' scruffy visage. Color is dense and graded with care, often using subtle toning to mirror the mood of each scene. Contrast is almost always balanced nicely, but there are a few scenes where black levels encroach on shadow detail a bit too oppressively. That's a minor complaint, and it's really the only one I can muster. The Big Picture looks true to intent and is a pleasure to watch in high definition.


The Big Picture Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

MPI's Blu-ray release includes two audio options, a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo fold- down. You'll definitely want to stick with the multi-channel mix if you've got a capable home theater system; although The Big Picture is a decidedly low-action thriller, the sound design does make good use of the rear speakers for ambience and occasional effects. A crying baby, crashing waves, Paris street sounds, birds and insects—the atmospherics are subtle but immersive. The original music by brothers Evgueni and Sacha Galperine drifts and surges through the soundfield as well, and while low-end output is limited, the overall mix has a solid sense of clarity and presence. Dialogue is balanced perfectly on top of all this, and is always cleanly recorded and easily understood. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles, which appear inside the 2.35:1 frame.
