The Sweet Hereafter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.40:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Atom Egoyan's The Sweet Hereafter arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Artificial Eye.

This new Blu-ray release of The Sweet Hereafter represents a dramatic upgrade in quality over the R1 DVD release of the film New Line Cinema produced in 1998. Image depth and clarity are simply terrific. The very important close-ups during the discussions look particularly good (see screencapture #3 for one such example). The panoramic shots always look crisp and boast terrific fluidity. Colors are wonderfully well saturated and very healthy. There are absolutely no traces of excessive degraining corrections. Sharpening adjustments have not been performed either. Unsurprisingly, from start to finish the film has a very solid and very convincing organic look. Finally, there are no serious compression issues. Also, there are no damage marks, cuts, stains, debris, or scratches. All in all, this is a wonderful presentation of The Sweet Hereafter that is guaranteed to please the many fans of the film. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Sweet Hereafter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Artificial Eye have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Mychael Danna's soundtrack has a very important role in the film. Fortunately, the terrific lossless 5.1 track allows it to shine in all the right places. The beautiful piano solos sound simply terrific (especially the ones in the final third of the film). There is also some good surround movement, though you should not expect to be impressed. The dialog is very crisp, always stable, and easy to follow. For the record, there are no pops, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
