    Regarded as the finest work from the first great era of Chinese filmmaking Fei Mu’s quiet piercingly poignant study of adulterous desire and guilt-ridden despair – now restored by the China Film Archive – is a remarkable rediscovery. After eight years of marriage to Liyan – once rich but now sickly and almost suicidally apathetic following a long ruinous war – Yuwen does little except deliver his daily medication. A surprise visit from Liyan’s friend Zhang re-energises the household the invalid included. Liyan’s young sister is not alone in her excitement over the much-travelled guest; Yuwen knew him before her marriage… In 2005 Spring In a Small Town was declared No.1 in the Best 100 Chinese Motion Pictures. A re-make as Springtime in a Small Town by Tian Zhuangzhuang was released in 2002 but this is the first time that the original film has been available on DVD in the UK.

  • Sweet Bean (aka 'an') (2015) (Masters of Cinema) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) Sweet Bean (aka 'an') (2015) (Masters of Cinema) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) | Blu Ray | (22/08/2016) from £13.24  |  Saving you £6.75 (33.80%)  |  RRP £19.99

    One of the most acclaimed figures in modern Japanese cinema, Naoimi Kawase followed up her remarkable 2014 Still in the Water with Sweet Bean [AN], a small-town drama of culinary redemption, which opened the prestigious Un Certain Regard strain of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Struggling street food vendor Sentaro (Masatoshi Nagase) finds himself confronted with Tokue (Kirin Kiki), an odd but sympathetic elderly lady looking for work. When he reluctantly accepts, it's not long before Tokue proves to have an extraordinary gift when it comes to making an - the sweet red bean paste filling used in his dorayakis - which starts a relationship that is much more than just street food. With Sweet Bean, Kawase again focuses on people at the periphery of Japanese society and investigates their place in the flow of life itself. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film for the first time in the UK. Special Features: High Definition presentation on the Blu-ray Optional English Subtitles A new, exclusive video interview with Naomi Kawase Theatrical trailer A 32-page booklet featuring a new essay on the film by critic Philip Kemp; an interview and statement from Kawase, and production images Click Images to Enlarge

  • Snow Flower and the Secret Fan [DVD] Snow Flower and the Secret Fan | DVD | (14/05/2012) from £5.59  |  Saving you £7.40 (57.00%)  |  RRP £12.99

    The Joy Luck Club director Wayne Wang contrasts the lives of two women in the present with two women in the past in Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Sophia (Gianna Jun), who hails from Korea, enjoys spending time with Nina (Bingbing Li) in 1990s Shanghai, though her uptight stepmother considers the latter a bad influence. Through Sophia's liberal aunt (Vivian Wu), the girls find out about Snow Flower and Lily, two laotongs, or "sisters for life," from the 1820s (played by the same actresses). Despite their class differences, the Hunan girls bond as they undergo rituals from foot-binding to arranged marriages, but Lily's mother-in-law interferes with their friendship, much like Sophia's stepmother (their contemporary versions squeeze their feet into designer heels). Typhoid and rebellion proceed to ravage their families, just as the stock market crash causes a similar effect centuries later. As adults, Nina and Sophia drift apart after a misunderstanding (concerning Hugh Jackman's nightclub owner), but an accident brings them back together, reflecting the rift that divided the 19th Century friends. Throughout, Wang shifts back and forth between eras, emphasising the freedoms Chinese women have gained over the years, which brings The Joy Luck Club to mind, since both movies sprang from novels about female relationships, but Snow Flower isn't as much of a tearjerker. It's absorbing and attractively shot, but frequently too restrained. Wang directs with compassion, but the film could use more heat. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

  • Force Majeure DVD Force Majeure DVD | DVD | (29/06/2015) from £6.95  |  Saving you £9.04 (56.50%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Whilst on a ski holiday in the French Alps a family are suddenly hit by what looks to be a deadly avalanche and the father-andhusband makes a cowardly run for it abandoning his wife and two children. However when it turns out to be a false alarm he has to slink back and face the people he is meant to love and the judgements they will form of him. This Golden Globe nominated comedy deconstructs everything to do with masculinity and being an “alpha male” in hilarious fashion.

  • Ghost In The Shell [DVD] Ghost In The Shell | DVD | (20/03/2017) from £3.84  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    The skilful blending of drawn animation and computer-generated imagery excited anime fans when this science fiction mystery was released in 1995: many enthusiasts believe Ghost suggests what the future of anime will be, at least in the short term. The film is set in the not-too-distant future, when an unnamed government uses lifelike cyborgs or "enhanced" humans for undercover work. One of the key cyborgs is The Major, Motoko Kusanagi, who resembles a cross between The Terminator and a Playboy centrefold. She finds herself caught up in a tangled web of espionage and counterespionage as she searches for the mysterious superhacker known as "The Puppet Master." Mamoru Oshii directs with a staccato rhythm, alternating sequences of rapid-fire action (car chases, gun battles, explosions) with static dialogue scenes that allow the characters to sort out the vaguely mystical and rather convoluted plot. Kusanagi's final quote from I Corinthians suggests that electronic evolution may compliment and eventually supplant organic evolution. The minor nudity, profanity, and considerable violence would earn Ghost in the Shell at least a PG rating. --Charles Solomon

  • Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Season 2 (Episodes 53-104) [DVD] Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Season 2 (Episodes 53-104) | DVD | (06/02/2017) from £27.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

  • Rashomon (Blu-ray) Rashomon (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (21/09/2015) from £10.48  |  Saving you £9.51 (47.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

    This 1950 film by Akira Kurosawa is more than a classic: it's a cinematic archetype that has served as a template for many a film since. (Rashomon's most direct influence was on a Western remake, The Outrage, starring Paul Newman and directed by Martin Ritt.) In essence, the facts surrounding a rape and murder are told from four different and contradictory points of view, suggesting the nature of truth is something less than absolute. The cast, headed by Kurosawa's favourite actor, Toshiro Mifune, is superb. --Tom Keogh

  • Mulholland Drive [2002] Mulholland Drive | DVD | (09/09/2002) from £5.00  |  Saving you £6.52 (32.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Pandora couldn't resist opening the forbidden box containing all the delusions of mankind, and let's just say in Mulholland Drive David Lynch indulges a similar impulse. Employing a familiar film noir atmosphere to unravel, as he coyly puts it, "a love story in the city of dreams", Lynch establishes a foreboding but playful narrative in the film's first half before subsuming all of Los Angeles and its corrupt ambitions into his voyeuristic universe of desire. Identities exchange, amnesia proliferates and nightmare visions are induced, but not before we've become enthralled by the film's two main characters: the dazed and sullen femme fatale, Rita (Laura Elena Harring), and the pert blonde just-arrived from Ontario (played exquisitely by Naomi Watts) who decides to help Rita regain her memory. Triggered by a rapturous Spanish-language version of Roy Orbison's "Crying", Lynch's best film since Blue Velvet splits glowingly into two equally compelling parts. --Fionn Meade

  • Farewell My Concubine (Dual Format Edition) [DVD] Farewell My Concubine (Dual Format Edition) | DVD | (21/03/2016) from £13.79  |  Saving you £6.20 (31.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The panorama of 20th-century Chinese history swirls past two men, celebrated actors with their own decidedly specialised view of things. We first observe their lives as children at the Peking Opera training school, a brutal and demanding arena for future actors. While still in training, the effeminate Douzi is chosen to play the transvestite role and the masculine Shitou is chosen to play the royal role in a ritualised play about a king and a concubine. The actors are so good at this performance that they become identified with these roles for their entire careers; through World War II, through the takeover by the Communists, through the insanity of the Cultural Revolution, they are known for their famous parts. Leslie Cheung and Zhang Fengyi are powerful as the two men, and Gong Li (the beautiful leading lady of Raise the Red Lantern) plays the wife of the latter. The movie may be stronger on good old-fashioned melodrama than on profound conclusions, but boy, does it fill up the eyes. The director is Chen Kaige, one of the most talented members of China's "Fifth Generation" of filmmakers, whose daring subject matter (and sometimes bald international ambitions) have often irked the Chinese government. Indeed, though Farewell My Concubine shared the top prize at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival and snagged two Oscar nominations, it had difficulty gaining official approval from China. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com
