Please Give

 (2010)

Please Give Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Married antique-dealers, Kate and Alex plan on gutting the apartment they own next door to expand their own pad once Andra, the cranky, elderly widow who lives there, finally dies. When Kate, conflicted with her own guilt, befriends Andra’s granddaughters, the results are anything but predictable.

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

Starring: Rebecca Hall, Elizabeth Keener, Elise Ivy, Catherine Keener, Josh Pais, Sarah Steele

Please Give Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Please Give arrives on Blu-ray with what appears to be a true-to-director intent 1080p transfer. Viewers used to immaculately reproduced 35mm transfers from Sony will immediately note that something about Please Give looks to be a bit off. The film was actually shot with 16mm cameras, giving it that somewhat less defined and slightly more raw and under-detailed texture. Thew result is a sometimes soft image that's lacking in pristine definition. Faces occasionally appear pasty and flat, and fine detailing ranges from tolerable to quite strong in several spots. A handful of shots look like they were captured on low grade, standard definition video, but such exist only in one- or two-second spurts here and there. Colors are fairly accurate and pleasing; everything from nicely-realized flesh tones all the way to the colorful decorations seen on food packaging impress and lends to the transfer a steady, honest appearance. Black levels are strong, too, never appearing neither dull nor excessively dark so as to drown out fine details. Please Give features a rough-around-the-edges sort of transfer, but it seems to replicate the picture's intended appearance based on the available information (further supplementary insight would have been appreciated).


Please Give Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Please Give features a run-of-the-mill DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. This is a dialogue-intensive film that sees most every other element fade into the background in favor of the words and the story they tell. Dialogue is precise and center-focused, and Marcelo Zarvos' (Remember Me) wonderful score is well-spaced across the front speakers. In one scene, voices and a slamming door nicely echo through the soundstage to create a realistic sound effect, and the track also captures location-specific ambience -- such as clanking silverware and background music in a restaurant or the general din of New York City in various exterior scenes -- nicely enough across the front. The surround speakers are rarely, if ever, put to use. Put simply, this track is as basic as they get, but basic is really all this film needs.
