This Must Be the Place

 (2011)

This Must Be the Place Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Cheyenne, a wealthy former rock star, now bored and jaded in his retirement embarks on a quest to find his father's persecutor, an ex-Nazi war criminal now hiding out in the U.S. Learning his father is close to death, he travels to New York in the hope of being reconciled with him during his final hours, only to arrive too late. Having been estranged for over 30 years, it is only now in death that he learns the true extent of his father's humiliation in Auschwitz at the hands of former SS Officer Aloise Muller - an event he is determined to avenge. So begins a life-altering journey across the heartland of America to track down and confront his father's nemesis. As his quest unfolds, Cheyenne is reawakened by the people he encounters and his journey is transformed into one of reconciliation and self discovery.

This Must Be the Place Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p0 transfer, Paolo Sorrentino's This Must Be the Place arrives on Blu-ray courtesy Anchor Bay Entertainment/The Weinstein Company.

Note: The UK Blu-ray release of This Must Be the Place, courtesy of Trinity Home Entertainment, contains the original Cannes 2011/International cut of the film, which runs at approximately 118 minutes, as well as the UK theatrical cut, which runs at approximately 111 minutes. This U.S. release contains only the UK theatrical cut of the film.

The high-definition transfer has been sourced from the same master Trinity Home Entertainment had access to when they prepared their Blu-ray release of This Must Be the Place for the UK market. I did a few comparisons with the disc that I have in my library and could not see any important discrepancies to address in this review. Detail and depth are quite spectacular, especially during the second half of the film, where Cheyenne travels to New Mexico and Utah. Color reproduction is also outstanding. Many of the panoramic shots, for instance, boast terrific lush colors (see screencaptures #3 and 14). Also, there are no traces of problematic lab corrections. However, I did notice the same light banding that is present on the UK release (see the the sequence where Cheyenne visits the old lady and has tea with her and her friend). It is not at all distracting, but it is indeed rather easy to see. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


This Must Be the Place Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles have been included for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The film is complimented by a very diverse soundtrack courtesy of David Byrne and Will Oldham. The music is not intense, but dynamic movement is still very impressive. Various nature sounds and noises are also quite well enhanced. The dialog is crisp, very clear, and always easy to follow. There are no problematic pops, cracks, audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
