The English Patient Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The English Patient is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate-Miramax with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. This is a largely trouble free presentation, with an overall great looking print, though I would rate the results to be just slightly less formidable than others in this recent wave of Miramax catalog releases, more in tune with the image quality I described in Minghella's other big epic out this week, Cold Mountain. The differences between what I would term the first tier and the second tier levels of image quality are quite slight, but noticeable. As with Cold Mountain, The English Patient shows significantly more grain than releases like Frida or Shakespeare in Love. In fact, The English Patient probably shows the most grain of any of these four releases, grain which spikes rather dramatically in many of the desert scenes (look at the sky in some of the desert screencaps included in this review for some good examples). The image is very sharp otherwise, with well modulated colors and some really gorgeous reproductions of the amber lit hues with infuse a lot of the film. Some of the darker elements do suffer from very minor crush and, again as with Cold Mountain, there some negligible ringing in a few scenes.


The English Patient Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The English Patient's gloriously detailed sound design is presented via a beautifully rendered DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that kicks into excellent immersion before the credits sequence even gets under way. The gentle tinkle of chimes and the thud of footsteps are cleanly presented, with the footsteps clearly in the left channel, and then we're off on a whirlwind journey that offers everything from awesome explosive LFE to gentler dialogue sequences. There are a number of hugely disparate segues in terms of the sound design here. The rattle of gunfire might immediately wash into the clink of glasses a peddler carries strung from bars on his shoulders, and the DTS track offers all of this with sterling fidelity and really impressive dynamic range. The film is full of fantastic panning effects and an above average use of discrete channelization even in dialogue sequences. The English Patient may not in fact be the stuff of summer blockbuster aural assault, but it comes awfully close some of the time, and it is presented here in an incredibly nuanced way.
