The Flowers of War

 (2011)

The Flowers of War Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A story of love and war - and a band of outcasts who emerge as unlikely heroes from the shadows of a city's occupation. At once lyrical and visceral, in the apocalyptic world of Nanjing in 1937, a vibrant human story about the invisible people of the city and a series of unexpected relationships that lead to a resonant act of sacrifice.

The Flowers of War Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Flowers of War is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. This is an often sumptuously beautiful film, something that may sound a bit unusual considering the fact that so much of the film plays out in debris strewn battle sequences. But Yimou, despite his over reliance on camera tricks, frames a very gorgeously wrought picture here, and this high definition presentation offers it with extremely appealing sharpness and clarity. Fine object detail pops extremely well and colors, while intentionally muted at times, pop quite nicely. About the only concern with this presentation is some less than convincing contrast at times, something which tends to bathe a lot of the interior cathedral scenes in too much murkiness. Otherwise, though, this is a really nicely filmic looking offering, with well rendered CGI artfully woven into the film and a generally extremely precise image that faithfully reproduces a cinematic appearance.


The Flowers of War Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Flowers of War features a very nicely done DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix which brilliantly utilizes the sound field in a number of boisterous battle scenes, and then just as artfully articulates some very quiet dialogue driven scenes. Ambient environmental effects are very nicely deployed around the surround channels, and one of the mix's best evocations is the huge hall ambience of Winchester Cathedral. Several sequences feature bullets zinging in from this direction or that direction, and the foley effects are extremely convincing, with impeccable use of discrete channelization. The subtle but very effective score is also very nice rendered in this lossless environment. Fidelity is superb and dynamic range is amazingly wide.
