The Talented Mr. Ripley

 (1999)

The Talented Mr. Ripley Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Opportunity knocks in the form of a wealthy U.S. shipbuilder who hires Tom to travel to Italy to bring back his playboy son, Dickie. Ripley worms his way into the idyllic lives of Dickie and his girlfriend, plunging into a daring scheme of duplicity, lies and murder

The Talented Mr. Ripley Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The transfer used for this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray released by Warner under license with Paramount is different from that featured on the Region B Blu- ray released by Optimum Home Entertainment earlier this year. That transfer was framed at 1.85:1, while this one, consistent with Warner's usual practice, has been opened up slightly to 1.78:1. Minghella worked with his English Patient collaborator John Seale, who won an Oscar for that film's cinematography, and despite the challenging weather conditions in Italy (described by Minghella in his commentary), Seale delivered one of the most romantically colorful recreations of late Fifties Italy in modern film. The Blu-ray's palette delivers an impressive balance between the brightly saturated hues of the jazz clubs and the impassioned Roman night life and and the more delicate hues of the gorgeous countryside in and around Mongibello (for which various locations were used).

Consistent with the film's dreamy style, the texture is soft, but detail is plentiful, and the film grain is fine but natural. Blacks in night scenes or on the occasional tuxedo are solid, and contrast is never overstated to the point of washing out fine detail. The average bitrate of 25.95 is well within the acceptable range for an action film, which Ripley isn't, but I suspect that every bit was necessary for the magnificent locations. (Almost none of the film was shot on soundstages.)


The Talented Mr. Ripley Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The same sound team that won an Oscar for The English Patient oversaw Ripley, including the film's legendary editor, Walter Murch. Murch's touch can be heard in the many layers of tiny, almost subliminal sounds and the sonic overlap of scenes so that you begin to hear the next scene while the previous one is concluding. The Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track reproduces the original theatrical mix with both authority and subtlety, whether it's the combination of wind, sea and singing during a religious ceremony on the beach, or the uproarious surroundings in a jazz club where Tom and Dickie get up on stage and perform together, or simply the waves rocking a boat during a fateful trip taken by two characters.

Ripley's complex musical score is well served by the Blu-ray's track, which provides presence and wide dynamic range for the unusual blend of classical music, jazz and Gabriel Yared's original score which effectively shifts between the intense longing that drives Tom Ripley and the growing threat that his longing poses to those around him.
