The Book Thief Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Book Thief is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. This is a largely flawless high definition experience that offers the crisp digital look of the Arri Alexa bolstered by a refreshing lack of overt color grading. In fact a lot of this film features a wonderfully natural looking palette, from the cool, frozen whites of the film's opening snowbound scenes (an environment which is revisited a couple of times in ensuing years) to the drab browns and beiges of the interior of the Hubermann home. There are a couple of notable exceptions to this, however, including a nice montage intercutting scenes of Jesse Owens at the 1936 Berlin Olympics with a blue tinged "recreation" by a young Rudy, who has unwisely adorned his face and body with black makeup (see screenshot 4). Even in these rare instances of intentional filtering, surprisingly little fine detail and sharpness is compromised. Contrast is generally strong, though there were one or two interior scenes in the Hubermann basement that I felt could have benefited from stronger shadow detail. All in all, though, this incredibly handsome looking film pops extremely well on Blu- ray.


The Book Thief Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Book Thief's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 provides a wealth of surround activity, including relatively subtle ambient environmental effects like the bustle of the little village's main street. The one place this track may surprise some audiophiles is in how restrained it sometimes is, as in some instances like a major bombing attack that rains down destruction on various characters, where just a couple of relatively conservative explosions play out underneath a swelling music cue. The claustrophobic atmosphere of the Hubermann home is very well rendered, with creaks of floorboards and a kind of slightly closed in sound in the home's attic making things sound very realistic. Dialogue is cleanly presented, and the film's moving score by John Williams is immaculately spread through the surrounds to great effect. Fidelity remains top notch and dynamic range is wide.
