The White Ribbon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony's Blu-ray release of The White Ribbon yields a gorgeous 1080p black-and-white transfer framed at a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The absence of color is in no way a hindrance to the quality of the picture; detail is immaculate throughout, with character faces and the village's pebbly dirt roads in particular revealing of the transfer's capabilities. There's no shortage of clarity across the board; even distant shots of the landscape and the textured wood and brick building façades and accents never lack in even the most intricate of details. Black levels are more often than not splendid, though there is a hint of crushing evident in several scenes. Still, it's the film's bright exterior daytime scenes that showcase the image's strengths. Clarity is beyond exceptional; the image is consistently sharp and deep, with several scenes taking on an almost 3D-like quality, and most every frame in some way demonstrates a perceptible level of depth. The White Ribbon's Blu-ray transfer does feature some grain; it's more pronounced in some scenes than in others, and while a random speckle or two also appear atop the image, they're not intrusive to the presentation. The White Ribbon represents another fine high definition transfer from Sony, and it's also a splendid example of how good a black-and-white image can look when presented with proper care and attention to detail.


The White Ribbon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The White Ribbon's Blu-ray release is graced with a high quality DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, presented with both native German and dubbed English options. The White Ribbon's soundtrack yields positive, strong, and focused dialogue, its narration in particular nicely resolved and infinitely crisp and discernible. Music is wonderfully clear and absent any sense that it's artificial and not live; a flute practice session early in the film features several light notes that float into the soundstage as if they were being performed live, allowing the speakers to disappear in favor of the breezy and impeccably accurate presentation. Additionally, Sony's track creates a wonderfully light but absorbing and seamless small-town atmosphere; the surround speakers are engaged with minor but nevertheless critical nuances that help absorb the listener into the various environments seen throughout the film, whether indoors, in the town proper, or in the surrounding wooded areas where birds, insects, light winds, and other natural elements spill into the soundstage with an effortlessness that ranks up there with the finer Blu-ray presentations. There are no action-like powerful components to be found, but a piercing whistle heard late in the film represents the track's most aggressive element. Generally, however, this is something of a reserved and contemplative listen; it suits the movie well, and Sony's lossless soundtrack is wonderful in that context.
