Winnie Mandela

 (2011)

Winnie Mandela Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

The life of Winnie Mandela from her childhood through her experience as a social worker in Johannesburg, where she met and married Nelson Mandela, who was then imprisoned for 27 years by the South African government for his opposition to apartheid. Mrs. Mandela took up her husband's cause and was herself persecuted and imprisoned.

For more about Winnie Mandela and the Winnie Mandela Blu-ray release, see Winnie Mandela Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jennifer Hudson, Terrence Howard, Wendy Crewson, Elias Koteas

Winnie Mandela Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Shot on film by Canadian cinematographer Mario Janelle (graduating from second unit work on such films as Upside Down), Winnie Mandela was finished on a digital intermediate, from which Image/RLJ's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray was presumably sourced. The image is crisply defined and razor sharp, with a smooth, nearly grainless appearance that could almost be mistaken for digital photography (which seems to be the goal of most contemporary DI colorists).

A golden glow suffuses most of the outdoor scenes, even in Nelson Mandela's Robben Island prison quarry, where the sunlight suggests hope more than heat. The color palette is vivid and intense, and both the production design and the post-production have conspired to draw disproportionate attention to Winnie Mandela's evolving wardrobe, which results in a sharp exchange between her and the judge at Nelson's trial. While the historical photographs accompanying the end credits suggest that this design may be accurate, it's a questionable visual strategy, because it invests too much of the character in her outfit and distracts from the woman herself. (It's the African equivalent of a society column that begins by describing what each lady wore to a luncheon.) Still, this isn't a fault of the Blu-ray, which conveys the multitude of colors in both Winnie's wardrobe and that of others (including her notorious "football team") without bleeding or oversaturation. The landscapes, streets of Johannesburg and grim interiors of prisons also get the appropriate hues and shadings.

Beyond any adjustments made at the DI stage, there is no indication of high frequency filtering or other untoward digital manipulation. Image continues its habit of using BD-25s wherever possible, holding the average bitrate at 19.99 Mbps for this 107-minute film, but the presence of black letterbox bars and of sufficient scenes involving quiet conversation seem to have afforded the compressionist enough space to avoid artifacts.


Winnie Mandela Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The film's original 5.1 soundtrack is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA. The English dialogue is very clear, and the less frequent dialogue in either Xhosa or, occasionally, Afrikaans is translated by non-switchable English subtitles. Several major crowd scenes of demonstrations and attacks on demonstrators by the police make effective use of the surrounds and, in some instances, the LFE channel to emphasize the scale of the confrontation and the threat from the authorities. Certain specific locales like the huge courtroom have subtle ambiant qualities that distinguish them from everyday situations.

The soundtrack by French composer Laurent Eyquem (Copperhead) is beautiful but unfortunate. It has the sweep and warmth of a historical romance, which is the wrong tone for Winnie Mandela. The same can be said of the Diane Warren song "Bleed for Love", which Jennifer Hudson sings over the end credits. The film should end with something haunting and tragic, and that's not what Warren writes or Hudson sings.
