The Downfall of Berlin: Anonyma Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Max Farberbock's The Downfall of Berlin - Anonyma arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Metrodome Video.

This is a very strong high-definition transfer. Fine object detail is great, particularly during the numerous close-ups where the camera studies the faces of the main protagonists. Clarity varies - obviously, due to the manner in which the film was shot - and during some of the darker indoor scenes it is rather difficult to see perfectly well everything that takes place on the screen. Contrast levels also vary, but, again, the numerous mild fluctuations that you would notice while viewing the film are intentional. The color-scheme is very unique - and very effective. Grays, light blues, deep yellows and browns are the prevalent colors. Some minor noise reductions have been applied, but the film's grain structure is very much in tact, and a number of key scenes look absolutely gorgeous. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not a serious issue of concern. Neither is ringing and banding. Additionally, I did not detect any disturbing cuts, warps, scratches, dirt, or stains or report in this review. Finally, when blown through a digital projector, the film looks remarkably stable and tight.

Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. There are, however, a couple of PAL-encoded trailers that are included on it. The good news is that they are not "forced", which means that you will be able to skip them and get to the disc's main menu without a problem. For the record, I have tested the disc on a Region-A PS3 and three other SAs.


The Downfall of Berlin: Anonyma Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: German/Russian DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, the English subtitles are imposed and cannot be turned off. Also, they appear inside the image frame.

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is very strong. The bass is powerful and punchy, the surround channels intelligently used, and the high frequencies not overdone. The opening 10-15 minutes, in particular, are very impressive, boasting some terrific surround effects. Furthermore, the dialog is crisp, clean and exceptionally easy to follow. Award-winning composer Zbigniew Preisner's music score also sounds lovely, especially during the second half of the film. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hiss to report in this review.
