The Turin Horse Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Without hyperbole, The Turin Horse features one of the best black and white Blu-ray presentations I've seen yet, right up there with The Seventh Seal and Letter Never Sent. Longtime Tarr collaborator Fred Kelemen's cinematography is starkly beautiful from start to finish— that should go without saying—and Cinema Guild's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer never hinders it in any way. The natural 35mm grain structure is entirely intact, there are no overt compression issues, and it's obvious that there's been no tampering with the integrity of the print, e.g. no edge enhancement or digital noise reduction filtering. What we get here is pure image. Clarity is never less than striking, with extremely fine detail visible in the peasant clothing of the two leads, the hard-knock-life wrinkles and creases in their faces, the shaggy coat of the lugubrious horse, and the dingy interiors—and weathered exteriors—of the wind-wracked cottage. Just as importantly, the monochromatic gradation has a wonderful sense of contrast, with ink-deep blacks and crisp whites, the former rarely crushing and the latter rarely peaking. Of course, there's really no substitute for seeing a Béla Tarr film on the big big screen, but when it comes to home video, I don't think we could've asked for more from Cinema Guild's faithfully gorgeous transfer of The Turin Horse.


The Turin Horse Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The core element of The Turin Horse's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 stereo track is a nearly non-stop assault of high-speed wind, blowing unhindered over the scrubby countryside. While part of me wishes the film had a 5.1 surround sound mix, effectively putting us right in the middle of the storm, the other part readily acknowledges that an immersive multichannel presentation might've been too much—too oppressive, too pervasive, too hard to endure. The 2.0 mix is plenty intense on its own. Some of other effects do sound a little canned, oddly—I might be wrong, but the footsteps, the jingle of horse tackle, and the flapping of blown clothing all seem to have been recorded by foley artists on a sound stage—but whether or not this one-step-removed-from-reality artifice is fully intentional is hard to say. Regardless, it's not distracting and you get used to it quickly. Aside from the wind, the most memorable aspect of the mix is Mihály Víg's haunting score, which consists of a repetitive minor-key arpeggio overlaid with quivering strings. It sounds wonderful here, the timbres of its cellos and violins richly reproduced. The Hungarian narration and spartan dialogue is well handled too, clean, balanced, and always easy to understand. The disc includes optional English subtitles, which appear in white lettering.
