Love Exposure

 (2008)

Love Exposure Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Irreverently zany, black-comedy drama capturing a year in the life of 17-year-old Yu. Yu falls into sinful ways after the death of his saintly mother and his father's subsequent ordainment to the Catholic priesthood. Yu's speciality as a petty criminal is taking sneaky camera shots up girls' skirts while he ostensibly performs elaborate martial arts moves. He falls in love with rough diamond Yoko, but their future together comes under threat when the creepy Koike goes all out to lure Yu into his religious cult.

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

Love Exposure Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Love Exposure is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Though I haven't seen the British Region "B" release of this film which my colleague Dr. Svet Atanasov reviewed here, a cursory comparison of the screenshots supports my theory that this is most likely not the same transfer. This transfer, while generally adequately sharp and decently detailed, seems a good deal more washed out than the British release, with less fulsome flesh tones and just a generally less robust level of saturation. This transfer also seems just slightly softer in comparison as well. While contrast between the two releases appears similar, the Olive release, perhaps by dint of its less robust saturation, doesn't look like it pops quite as well in the film's darker sequences. On the other hand, it must also be said there appears to be more overall brightness in the Olive release, which makes some of the shadow detail clearer and the daytime scenes pop quite nicely. All of this said, I have never seen Love Exposure theatrically and so cannot offer a valid opinion on which transfer better reproduces the original film appearance. What this is probably going to boil down to for most consumers is, obviously first depending on if they have a multi-region player, whether they prefer a somewhat darker and more saturated appearance or the lighter, less contrasty appearance of this transfer.


Love Exposure Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Love Exposure features the original Japanese language track presented via a Dolby TrueHD 2.0 audio option. Dr. Atanasov's review of the British release, which had a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix, doesn't mention a glut of surround activity, and in fact the film is often on the quiet, dialogue driven side of things, an aspect which is supported quite well on this track. The film does almost obsessively utilize a couple of classical musical cues, both of which might have benefited from a surround track, but which are presented here with excellent fidelity. The overall mix, while obviously narrow, is well prioritized and features good dynamic range.
