  • Michael [Masters of Cinema] Blu-ray Michael Blu-ray | Blu Ray | (12/02/2018) from £12.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Based on Herman Bang's 1902 novel of the same name, Dreyer's film is a fascinating fin-de-siècle study of a decadent elderly artist (Benjamin Christensen) driven to despair by his relationship with his young protégé and former model, Michael (Walter Slezak). With suffocatingly sumptuous production design by renowned architect Hugo Häring (his only film work), this Kammerspiel, or intimate theatre, foreshadows Dreyer's magnificent final film Gertrud, by forty years with its Now I may die content, for I have seen great love epigraph. Michael was scripted by Dreyer with Fritz Lang's wife, Thea von Harbou (Metropolis, M, etc). It stars the director Benjamin Christensen (Häxan); Walter Slezak (Hitchcock's Lifeboat); Nora Gregor (Renoir's The Rules of the Game); Mady Christians (Ophüls' Letter from an Unknown Woman); and Karl Freund (who also shot Metropolis) in his only ever appearance as an actor. Freund lensed most of Michael too, but left to work on Murnau's The Last Laugh, and Rudolph Maté took over.

  • The Passion Of Joan Of Arc (1928) (Masters of Cinema) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition The Passion Of Joan Of Arc (1928) (Masters of Cinema) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition | Blu Ray | (21/08/2017) from £15.27  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    One of the most emotional film experiences of any era, Carl Theodor Dreyer s 1928 The Passion of Joan of Arc [La Passion de Jeanne d Arc / Jeanne d Arc s lidelse og dod.] is a miracle of the cinema, an enigmatic and profoundly moving work that merges the worlds of the viewer and of saintly Joan herself into one shared experience of hushed delirium. Dreyer s film charts the final days of Joan of Arc as she undergoes the debasement that accompanies her trial for charges of heresy through her imprisonment and execution at the stake. The portrayal of Joan by Renée Maria Falconetti is frequently heralded as the all-time finest performance in the history of film, and Dreyer s unusual and virtuosic method, in seeming to render the very soul of his actress, vaulted the director decisively into the ranks of the art form s supreme geniuses. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present The Passion of Joan of Arc in an exclusively restored version, presented in both 20fps and 24fps playback speeds, and featuring Dreyer s own original Danish-language intertitles.

  • Vampyr [Masters of Cinema] Vampyr | DVD | (25/08/2008) from £8.79  |  Saving you £11.20 (56.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The first sound-film by one of the greatest of all filmmakers Vampyr offers a sensual immediacy that few if any works of cinema can claim to match. Legendary director Carl Theodor Dreyer leads the viewer as though guided in a trance through a realm akin to a wakingdream a zone positioned somewhere between reality and the supernatural. Traveller Allan Gray (arrestingly depicted by Julian West aka the secretive real-life Baron Nicolas de Gunzburg) arrives at a countryside inn seemingly beckoned by haunted forces. His growing acquaintance with the family who reside there soon opens up a network of uncanny associations between the dead and the living of ghostly lore and demonology which pull Gray ever deeper into an unsettling and upsetting mystery. At its core: troubled Gisle chaste daughter and sexual incarnation portrayed by the great cursed Sybille Schmitz (Diary of a Lost Girl and inspiration for Fassbinder's Veronika Voss.) Before the candles of Vampyr exhaust themselves Allan Gray and the viewer alike come eye-to-eye with Fate - in the face of dear dying Sybille in the blasphemed bodies of horrific bat-men in the charged and mortal act of asphyxiation - eye-to-eye then with Death the supreme vampire. Deemed by Alfred Hitchcock 'the only film worth watching... twice' Vampyr's influence has become by now incalculable. Long out of circulation in an acceptable transfer The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Dreyer's truly terrifying film in its film restored form for the first time in the UK on DVD.

    Carl Dreyer's last film neatly crowns his career: a meditation on tragedy individual will and the refusal to compromise. A woman leaves her unfulfilling marriage and embarks on a search for ideal love - but neither a passionate affair with a younger man nor the return of an old romance can provide the answer she seeks. Always the stylistic innovator Dreyer employs long takes and theatrical staging to concentrate on Nina Pens Rode's sublime portrayal of the proud and courageous Ge
