Video

High picture quality which helps convey the intended atmosphere of the film. Set in a frozen landscape, many scenes must come off as cold not just in temperature, but mood. Checking out the movie on blu-ray is definitely the way to go.

Audio

The audio comes through fine. I never misunderstood a line reading and never felt overwhelmed by the sound mix.
