The Tin Drum

 (1979)

The Tin Drum Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In the East Prussia of Danzig before the war, three-year-old Oskar Matzerath decides to stop growing--and succeeds--then finds playing his favorite toy, a tin drum, useful for tuning out things that annoy him, like his mother's dallying with their Polish boarder, the Nazi rallies his father attends, or even the advent of war itself.

For more about The Tin Drum and the The Tin Drum Blu-ray release, see the The Tin Drum Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Mario Adorf, Angela Winkler (I), David Bennent, Katharina Thalbach, Daniel Olbrychski, Tina Engel
Director: Volker Schlöndorff

The Tin Drum Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.64:1m encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Volker Schlondorff's The Tin Drum arrive son Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Films.

The Blu-ray disc contains new high-definition transfers for the Theatrical Version and newly reconstructed Director's Cut of The Tin Drum approved by Volker Schlondorff. The former runs at approximately 144 minutes, while the latter runs at approximately 164 minutes. My comments below will be for the Director's Cut of the film.

Detail and clarity are very pleasing. Contrast levels have also been largely stabilized. There are dramatic improvements in the area of color reproduction as well - the reds, greens, blues, browns, and blacks look substantially richer and better saturated than they are on the Criterion R1 DVD release of the film. Furthermore, there are no traces of overzealous sharpening and problematic denoising corrections. Unsurprisingly, a healthy dose of light grain is present at all times. This being said, compression could have been better as small artifacts occasionally pop up here and there. Extremely light noise and some background flicker have a tendency to creep in as well. During a few selected sequences sharpness levels also tend to spike up. Overall, however, the restoration efforts have produced solid results and the strong high-definition transfer makes it easy to appreciate them. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Tin Drum Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: German DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (with portions of Polish). For the record, Arrow Films have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The German DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is strong. The dialog is crisp, clear, well balanced, and free of problematic hiss. Maurice Jarre's music score has also benefited from the loseless treatment - depth and especially fluidity are greatly improved. However, anyone expecting a wide variety of nuanced dynamics will likely be disappointed as the film's sound design is relatively modest. For the record, there are no sync issues or audio dropouts to report in this review.
