Anne Wiazemsky: List of Movies, Films and TV Shows
Hawks and Sparrows (1966) / Pigsty (1969) Limited Edition (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (22/02/2016)
from £9.05 | Saving you £8.94 (49.70%) | RRP
From its sung opening credits, Hawks and Sparrows (Uccellacci e uccellini) is a wonderfully free-form picaresque fable that lampoons politics, religion and the state of modern Italy, as the beloved comic actor TotÃ², Pasolini regular Ninetto Davoli and a talking crow wander the landscape through a gauntlet of unexpected encounters. Pigsty (Porcile) is one of his most controversial works, interspersing the mute wanderings of cannibalistic savages against a barren, volcanic earth with the tale of Julian (played by Nouvelle Vague icon Jean-Pierre LÃ©aud), his radically politicised fiancÃ©e Ida (Anne Wiazemsky, Au Hasard Balthazar), and the financial machinations of his father Herr Klotz in contemporary industrialised Germany. Both films demonstrate a restless, pioneering artist's exploration of the natural world contrasted with the societal structures that govern human life. Visually inspired and playing by no-one's rules other than his own, these two brilliant works by Pasolini are presented on Blu-ray for the first time in a new limited edition.
La Chinoise | Blu Ray | (23/04/2018)
from £15.98 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Jean-Luc Godard's ferocious run of ground breaking 1960s commercial features neared a terminus point as the filmmaker turned his gaze onto the nascent left-wing student organisations coalescing on university campuses across France and environs. The resulting film was his searing masterpiece La Chinoise a mordant satire, pedagogical treatise, political tract, and pop-artwork-plus blood rolled into one. It's early '67 and Radio Peking's in the air for the Aden Arabie Cell, a Maoist collective holed up in a sprawling flat on Paris's rue de Miromesnil the newly purchased actual residence of Godard and then-wife and star Anne Wiazemsky. VÃ©ronique (Wiazemsky) and her comrades, including Jean-Pierre LÃ©aud (The 400 Blows, Out 1) and Juliet Berto (Out 1, CÃ©line and Julie Go Boating) lead a series of discussions and performative skits addressing matters of French colonialism, American imperialism, and the broader conflict raging in Vietnam. A meditation on the efficacy of violent protest and militant counteraction played out between Wiazemsky (conducted by Godard via radio-earpiece), and her then-tutor philosopher Francis Jeanson gives way to a plot to assassinate the Soviet minister of culture a red-handed point of no going-back on the path to complete radicalisation. A tour-de-force of the primary-palette images the ?household images,' perhaps of Godard's early career, La Chinoise serves as both cautionary tale and early sign of fascination with the political currents that would soon lead to the next period of JLG's life and work. The revolution is not a dinner-party.

Au Hasard Balthazar | Blu Ray | (31/12/2018)
from £17.74 | Saving you £2.25 (11.30%) | RRP
Revered director Robert Bresson's celebrated masterpiece is the seemingly simple yet profoundly moving and deeply affecting tale of Balthazar, a donkey in rural France. Passed from owner to owner, in turn treated kindly and cruelly, always inhabiting a world beyond his control, Balthazar exists as a beast of burden, suffering for the sins of man. But through his silence and powerlessness - as well as Bresson's masterly touch - his trajectory becomes a stirring, transcendental allegory of purity and hope. A film unlike any other, Au Hasard Balthazar was awarded the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival and has rightly taken its place in the pantheon of greatest French films ever made.

Sympathy For The Devil | DVD | (05/06/2006)
from £7.59 | Saving you £8.40 (52.50%) | RRP
Jean-Luc Godard's Sympathy For The Devil is an exhilarating provocative pastiche of a motion picture. While the focus of the film is on The Rolling Stones song after which the film is titled a series of abstract fictional vignettes in the second half of the film allows Godard to probe topics as diverse as Black Power pornography and the irony of interviewing celebrities. These extended sequences elevate the film above a simple portrait of the English rockers constructing a
Pigsty (DVD) | DVD | (23/07/2012)
from £5.19 | Saving you £10.80 (67.50%) | RRP
Decades on from its release, and featuring an all-star cast that includes Jean-Pierre Laud, Anne Wiazemsky, Franco Citti, Pierre Clmenti, and Marco Ferreri, Pigsty [Porcile] remains one of Pier Paolo Pasolini's most controversial and wilfully provocative works – a deranged parody of cinema as revolutionary act. It comprises parallel stories: (1) Clmenti and Citti as cannibalistic savages who rampage a world outside of any distinct time or place, and who push against the boundaries of human morality; (2) Godard-regulars Laud and Wiazemsky as a romantically engaged couple in a contemporary Germany painted as a morass of industrialisation, fascist impulse, and bestial instincts. Special Features: New high-definition transfer in the film's original aspect ratio Original Italian theatrical trailer Newly translated optional English subtitles Illustrated booklet featuring rare archival imagery, the words of Pasolini, and more!
