Volver

 (2006)

Volver Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Set in Spain, this is a generational story of three women: a good mother who is desperately in love with a man who is far from being a saint; a young mother carrying a hard life upon her shoulders; and an illegal hairdresser whose shop is the meeting point for all the neighborhood gossips.

For more about Volver and the Volver Blu-ray release, see Volver Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, Blanca Portillo, Yohana Cobo, Chus Lampreave
Director: Pedro Almodóvar

Volver Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Volver's 2.35:1 framed, 1080p high definition transfer will often have you returning to this transfer to lose yourself in its beautiful presentation. Striking, realistic colors are apparent from the opening moments of the film. The purple sweater Raimunda wears not only has a natural, vibrant color, but the detail in it is extraordinary as each and every thread is clearly reproduced and visible on the disc. In fact, colors are vibrant and pleasing throughout. Various indoor shots feature a striking array of colors, from curtains to tile, and everything stands out as ornate and beautiful. Likewise, paper towels that soak up the blood of Raimunda's murdered husband feature a wonderfully realistic texture, and the blood looks surprisingly real. The image is crisp, well-defined, and sharp. Black levels are fine, and flesh tones appear natural. I saw one instance of edge enhancement on one of the foreground power line towers in chapter two as the family drives through a windmill farm; granted, this is so minimal it is hardly worth mentioning, save to emphasize the perfection otherwise noted throughout the film. Volver is another great looking title from Sony, and the rich colors strewn throughout the film that look so marvelous make this disc demonstration-worthy material.


Volver Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Volver provides listeners with only two soundtrack options, both of which feature the film's original Spanish language track, one in Dolby Digital 5.1 and the other in an uncompressed PCM 5.1 offering. English SDH and standard English subtitles are available to assist listeners who do no not speak Spanish. The uncompressed soundtrack is just fine, but is generally uninteresting. Dialogue is always crisp, but in a movie like this it is sometimes hard to fine-tune your ear to the track as half your brain is tied up in reading the subtitled translation rather than focusing completely on the voices of the characters. Still, there is no denying that this aspect of the disc is strong. The opening sequence in a cemetery features a stiff wind that comes through well, filling the listening area and creating the illusion of a breeze blowing through your room. Generally, however, the track is front and dialogue heavy, offering limited range and effects in either the front left and right speakers, or the rear channels. A few effects sound canned and unnatural, like they are being artificially forced onto the soundtrack rather than coming across as natural and realistic (the multiple cheek kisses shared by the characters is a good example). Volver is a dialogue-driven drama and, as such, the audio presentation is fine. It's bland and boring, but it fits the tone of the movie well.
