The Lives of Others

 (2006)

The Lives of Others Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this must-own Blu-ray release

Set in East Berlin before the fall of the Wall, the East German government kept control over its citizens with a ruthless system of control and surveillance run by the all powerful Stasi. When a high–ranking politician cannot keep his eyes off a celebrated stage actress, State Security Captain Gerd Wiesler is briefed to set up strict surveillance on her boyfriend, the famous theatre director Georg Dreyman. The loyal Stasi man finds that the surveillance process gives him not just an intimate insight into the couple‘s lives but will change his own life irrevocably.

The Lives of Others Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony has certainly done right by this important film, giving it a masterful transfer on Blu-ray. Framed at 2.35:1, this 1080p high definition image is almost flawless, and is, in my opinion, the de facto reference disc for the drama genre. Grain is present throughout, a fine layer that adds a pleasing film-like look to the movie. The print is in mostly good condition, though some spots and imperfections appear on rare occasions. There is not an abundance of color in the film, the brightest shades often seen in the make-up worn by Christa-Maria. Colors are generally drab and lifeless, shades of gray the primaries seen throughout, and other colors representing the more drab and uninteresting to be found on the color palette, a reflection of the dreary, unsavory and frightening proceedings seen throughout the film. Flesh tones look just fine, sometimes lit a bit harshly. Much of the movie, though crisp and defined, can look a bit soft in some places, but I'm convinced that that is more of a result from the director setting the tone of the film more than anything else. Black levels are good, but appear with a field of grain in accompaniment, and are perhaps a bit brighter than we expect to see in the best transfers. Given the stylized look of the film in places, this transfer is an excellent one, befitting of both the subject matter of the movie and of the Blu-ray format.


The Lives of Others Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Though short on action and robust use of loud, aggressive sound, the PCM 5.1 uncompressed track that accompanies The Lives of Others on Blu-ray nevertheless is marvelous. Not an overly active track, this one sounds natural, a track that replicates life, not some over-abundance of unrealistic action. That type of mix is good in its own right, but here, the track is somewhat reserved. It's very front-heavy and dialogue-centered, and dialogue reproduction (in the original German language) is exquisite and makes for a fantastic listen. Several scenes offer moments of pleasant and realistic ambience, such as that taking place during a funeral in chapter 8. Definitely understated but realistic in presentation, we hear a nice breeze and blowing leaves placed in the rear channels; the effect seems to position us in the chilled, dreary setting. The movie's fine, dramatic score is reproduced very well on this disc. Listen in around the 1:20:40 mark for a wonderful directional effect that utilizes the rear channels and a nice thud from the subwoofer. There is not an abundance of surround activity, but most of the movie doesn't call for it. When it comes into play, the effects are seamless. Like the video quality, this is an excellent mix that proves to be a captivating listen and definitely aids in the overall feel and tone of the film.
