Bel Canto – Official Trailer

Official Film Synopsis: Bel Canto

Based on Ann Patchett’s best-selling novel, BEL CANTO is a dramatic love story that follows a famous soprano (Julianne Moore) who travels to a military dictatorship in South America to give a private concert at a party for a wealthy Japanese industrialist (Ken Watanabe). Just as the glittering gathering of diplomats and politicians convenes, the mansion is taken over by a guerrilla rebel group demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. Threats are made, lives are lost, a tense negotiation begins, and a month long standoff ensues.

While they are confined to the house, the hostages and their captors, who speak different languages, are forced to find ways to communicate. Music, especially the beautiful arias performed by Moore’s character, a songbird in captivity, sparks a shared sense of comradeship and even love, uniting the disparate housemates as they form unexpected bonds, overcome their differences, and discover their shared humanity.

Julianne Moore stars.

Bel Canto Design DAC 1 D/A processor

Now the rallying cry is “24-bit/96kHz!” It’s possible to spend several thousand dollars on a digital processor that could become obsolete as rapidly as do today’s cutting-edge computers. SACD and DVD-Audio are about to duke it out in the marketplace, and it’s too soon to predict how this epic fight will turn out. The CD will likely continue as the dominant format for at least the next few years, so it makes sense to have your CD playback optimized. You’d like your CD playback equipment to be as up to date as possible, but you’d also like to stay in the moderate price range, so you won’t lose too much in the inevitable next round of obsolescence.

The Bel Canto DAC 1 was designed for people like you.

Description & Design
If what you’re looking for is a piece of equipment that will impress your audiophile friends with its milled-from-solid titanium case and array of flashing lights, the DAC 1 will not satisfy. It’s a smallish black box, albeit with a classy gold-plated “Bel Canto Design” metal plate on the side. At one end are the inputs (one S/PDIF, one TosLink), at the other the analog outputs (RCA coax). There’s an LED that changes from red to green when the DAC 1 locks on to a digital datastream, and a pushbutton inverts absolute phase.

As described in the “User’s Guide,” and in more detail in a white paper on the Bel Canto website, designing the DAC 1 involved attempts to reduce four sources of error in D/A conversion:

1) timing jitter in the DAC clock

2) quantization noise in the D/A conversion process

3) time-domain smearing

4) distortion from electromagnetic interference (EMI)

Without going into the technical details—which I understand at only a very general level—the DAC 1’s design involves use of the popular Crystal CS8420 sample-rate converter chip, which converts all input sources to 96kHz and adds 8 bits of dither to bring the data depth up to 24 bits (unless the source is already 24/96), then sends this “upsampled” data to the Burr-Brown PCM1704 24/96 DAC. A crystal oscillator provides a buffered clock output that controls both the sample-rate converter and the DAC, thus reducing jitter. A slow-rolloff digital filter set at 48kHz produces what Bel Canto claims is a more “analog-like” impulse response than the 22kHz brick-wall digital filters used in some other processors.

EMI—which, as Bel Canto uses the term, includes radio-frequency interference (RFI)—has long been recognized as a significant source of distortion, and Bel Canto’s white paper on the DAC 1 points out that the problems start with the radiation of high-frequency clock and data signals. “Radiation requires an antenna, which is any unshielded wire of sufficient length.” It now becomes clear that the DAC 1 is made small not to save money (or not just to save money) on chassis costs, but because its design calls for short signal paths. Critical clock and data line lengths are a fraction of an inch, and the DAC 1’s small size allows it to be placed close to the preamp or data source, requiring only very short cables. (The DAC 1 is also available in an “internal” version that can be part of a Bel Canto preamp or integrated amp.)

On the analog side, the DAC 1 uses all Caddock resistors and polypropylene film and foil capacitors, with separate power supplies (including separate transformers) for the analog and digital sections, and star grounding. The analog section’s S/N ratio is said to be equivalent to 20-bit performance.


Getting Started
Connecting the DAC 1 is simplicity itself—the only decision is whether the coaxial S/PDIF or TosLink input should be used. And because my PS Audio Lambda II transport has no TosLink output, I didn’t even have to make that decision. Linked by the excellent Kimber Illuminations D-60 coax, the Lambda II/DAC 1 pairing worked well except in one respect: with every CD, when the first track started playing, and whenever I changed tracks manually, there was a slight pop through the speakers. I’ve used this transport with a number of digital processors, and this has never happened, which made me suspect the DAC 1 was the source of the problem. However, when I used the Rotel RCD-991 as the transport, the pop was gone.

I discussed the issue with John Stronczer, designer of the DAC 1, who acknowledged that with some transports they’ve found this sort of interaction, which, he said, indicated momentary loss of lock. He suggested that I try one of the late-generation DVD players and use its TosLink output, which they’ve found to work better in this application than most CD transports. He also sent me a new sample of the DAC 1 that incorporated the latest revision of the CS8420, which was said to have better locking performance. Indeed, the new sample of the DAC 1 did not produce the pop when used in combination with the Lambda II (or any other transport I had on hand).

I was intrigued by Stronczer’s suggestion to use the TosLink connection from a DVD player. The collective audiophile wisdom on TosLink is that it’s inferior to coax S/PDIF, having lower bandwidth and being more prone to jitter. Stronczer admits that TosLink has relatively high jitter, but says that this does not present a problem with the DAC 1 because of this processor’s ability to reject jitter. He likes the fact that TosLink can get rid of ground loops, and feels that the large (16MB) storage buffer built into DVD players is an effective way of suppressing low-frequency jitter components from the datastream that comes off the disc. In any case, I felt compelled to check out the suitability of a DVD player/TosLink as a source.

The DVD player in regular use in my home-theater system is a Sony DVP-S7000, a first-generation player; so I borrowed a Pioneer DV-09, a current top-of-the-line model. The first comparison I made was between the TosLink (AudioQuest OptiLink 2) and coax S/PDIF (Kimber Illuminations D-60) outputs of the DV-09, playing Chesky’s familiar Jazz Sampler & Audiophile Test CD (JD37). The sound with the TosLink connection was fine in general terms, but compared to the coax it seemed subdued, slightly muffled, and subjectively slower. Comparing the DV-09 and the Lambda II, both using the coax outputs, there was not much difference; if anything, the Lambda II was a bit more detailed. I used the Lambda II for most of my subsequent auditioning of the DAC 1.

Bel Canto-sp

Veteran director and co-writer Paul Weitz (recently known for the award winning TV series Mozart in the Jungle) took the well-received novel by Ann Patchett which we read four years ago (see bookrap.net) and brought together an international cast to make this magnificent film. The story is based on an actual hostage situation which occurred in Peru in the 1990s. It centers around a planned dinner party featuring a performance by a well-known opera star (played by Julianne Moore with the voice over by Renee Fleming).

The setting is a beautiful private residence where the president of a South American country was supposed to be one of the guests. Also present was a Japanese industrialist (Ken Watanabe) and other international guests. The private party was invaded by some rebels, who had planned to take the president of the country hostage, in order to attempt to free some jailed political prisoners. Because the president was not there and had sent the vice-president in his place, the rebels took all of the guests hostage. The dinner party guests are now hostages being guarded by their captors. What then develops is a beautiful depiction of what psychiatrists call, the “Stockholm Syndrome” where hostages develop meaningful relationships with their captors and in this case vice versa. The situation goes on for several weeks as negotiations take place. The mood is set by the beautiful voice and music of the opera singer. The very human stories and interactions of the cast of characters is enchanting as attention builds towards the climax.

While some of the points of emphasis may be slightly different than was depicted in the book, Mr. Weitz is true to the theme and is able to match the magnificent setting and the beautiful singing to the interesting and rich characters with whom he worked. The excellent international cast includes Sebastian Koch, Christopher Lambert, Ryo Kase, Tenoch Huerta, Noe Hernandez, Maria Coroy, Elsa Zylberstein and Olek Krupa. The entire film is skillfully woven together and should not be missed. (2018)

Movie Plot:
Roxane Coss (Julianne Moore), a famous American soprano, travels to a military dictatorship in South America to give a private concert at the birthday party of rich Japanese industrialist Katsumi Hosokawa (Ken Watanabe). The house is taken over by guerrillas, led by General Benjamin (Demian Bichir), demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. A monthlong standoff ensues in which hostages and captors must overcome their differences and find their shared humanity in the face of impending disaster.

‘Bel Canto’ Trailer: Julianne Moore Brings Harmony To A Hostage Crisis In Paul Weitz Drama

In the Paul Weitz-directed Bel Canto, Julianne Moore plays a famous soprano who heads to South America to perform at a swanky birthday party for a wealthy Japanese industrialist (Ken Watanabe). But the fancy gathering is rudely interrupted when the house is taken over by a guerrilla rebel group demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. Needless to say, they ruin the party and things take a turn for the worse.

Based on the novel by Ann Patchett, the story follows the lengthy standoff and as seen in the trailer above, hostages and captors form unlikely bonds as they overcome their differences and find their shared humanity. And of course, we get some singing from Moore. Actually, it’s not Moore doing the singing — it’s international opera star Renee Fleming. Either way, it’s beautiful.

The film , which was adapted by Weitz and Anthony Weintraub, also stars Sebastian Koch, Christopher Lambert, Ryo Kase, Tenoch Huerta, and María Mercedes Coroy. Patchett’s best-selling novel was inspired by the events of the Japanese embassy hostage crisis (also called the Lima hostage crisis) of 1996-1997 in Lima, Peru. It has received several awards including the Orange Prize for Fiction and PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction

Screen Media Films will release Bel Canto in theaters on Sept. 14.
