[Test Blu-ray 4K UHD] Don’t worry my love

4K picture: 4.5/5



Don’t worry my love captured digitally (Arri Alexa LF, Arri Alexa Mini LF) and comes from a 4K master with respectable 2.40:1 aspect ratio 4K Blu-ray, HEVC compression and HDR10+ presentation. On the definition side, it should be noted that the picture has been altered to give it some cinematic grain to make it more believable of the 50s and 60s, but it doesn’t detract from the definition. It is very good and does not drop even a second. The detail in faces (close-ups are perfect), costumes and sets, real or digital, is superb.

It explodes on the color side. Whether it’s for the different clothes of the characters, the green of the grass, or the blue of the sky, everything is saturated to the maximum to create an image that is more bare than reality and give a fake side to the whole. Visually it works perfectly. Contrasts and blacks, unobstructed, good and skin tones are respected. Whites are also plain (men’s white shirts). Finally, the image depth is excellent. No compression problems are noted. Perfect master from the publisher.

Vote: 3.5/5

Warner Bros. France (Casablanca, Elvis) offers us a track in English Dolby Altmos (with kernel in Dolby TrueHD 7.1). As strong as it should be, accurate, well distributed, wide, effective as needed. Dialogues are clear. There are few effects, even atmospheres, to make full use of Atmos, but we’ll remember the mall scene, the plane crash, or the final chase. Don’t worry my love It’s not the kind of film that Atmos would demo, but it remains a very good mix. For the rest, the music and songs used in the film are also well mixed and the subwoofer is used sparingly but well. A track is mostly enough and well mixed.

There is a French track Dolby Digital 5.1. These are strong enough, wide enough, well distributed, but lack precision due to compression. The volume of the French dub is level and blends well with the original mix. Effects and music flow well through all five channels. Subwoofer is again less but well used. Unfortunately, we do not have an HD 5.1 track for this movie.

Synopsis

Alice and Jack are lucky enough to call Victory home, a small corporate experimental campus inhabited by men and their families who work for the ultra-secret Project Victory.

While the men spend all day at Project Victory HQ working on “advanced materials development,” their wives, like Frank’s elegant wife Shelly, live in luxury and laziness. Life is perfect in this environment, where the smallest desire of the residents is paid for by the company. In return, they agree to retain full discretion and unwavering support for the Victory cause. But when cracks begin to appear beyond the charming facade, revealing a terrifying reality, Alice can’t help but wonder: why are she and Frank here? What is the real purpose of Project Victory? But is Alice willing to lose everything to discover behind the scenes of an island paradise?

Movie

Don’t worry my love, Olivia Wilde’s second feature film, is a psychological thriller with science fiction undertones. As for the script, if there’s anything to complain about, whether it’s the drama or the exposition (obviously, we can see the opposite thirty minutes in), it’s that the direction, costumes and sets are impeccable. . The cast is also very good, with Florence Pugh once again showing her talent. Unfortunately, the script is not up to par. With a little more subtlety and depth, this could have been one of the films of 2022.
