The Nativity Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Hardwicke tapped her cinematographer from her previous two films, Elliot Davis, to shoot The Nativity Story. (Davis also shot her Twilight film and, more recently, The Iron Lady for director Phyllida Lloyd.) Captured on film and finished on a digital intermediate, The Nativity Story was given a look dictated largely by the period production design, which was monochromatic, and the arid locations in Morocco. To the extent any color remained, it appears to have been further desaturated in post-production, with the exception of scenes involving the Magi, who, by virtue of their wealth, could afford more vivid finery.

Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray features exceptional, almost tactile detail that renders the landscape almost three-dimensional in some scenes. Blacks are solid and well-differentiated—a must, given the lack of strong colors to separate one plane from another. The grain pattern is unusually fine, which is probably a result of the DI process, but nothing looks filtered or smoothed. Nor does any of the image's sharpness appear to be the result of electronic enhancement. Although the bitrate is not the highest I've seen (at just under 21 Mbps), there were no evident compression artifacts, and given the limited audio options and the relative lack of extras, the 101-minute film fits comfortably onto a BD-25.


The Nativity Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack is pleasant-sounding and professionally engineered, with good dynamic range and a fine sense of presence, especially for Mychael Danna's elegant score, which strikes an apt balance between an adventure story and a devotional experience. The spare dialogue is always clear. Although the temptation to add thunderous sound effects to appearances of the Angel Gabriel must have been overwhelming, these major events remain understated and dreamlike. To the extent the surrounds become active, it is only in isolated moments such as Herod's tour of a palace under construction or a river crossing by Mary and Joseph that turns hazardous.
