    Although most commonly associated with the Wuxia genre, in 1979 King Hu directed the epic fantasy-horror, Legend of the Mountain. Heavily influenced by traditional Chinese aesthetics and Zen Buddhist philosophy, it has come to be regarded as one of his greatest filmmaking achievements. A young scholar, Ho Yunqing (Shih Jun, A Touch of Zen, Dragon Inn), is tasked by an eminent monk to transcribe a Buddhist sutra said to have immense power over the spirits of the afterlife. To execute his work in peace, he travels to an isolated monastery deep in the mountains, where he encounters a number of strange people, including the mysterious and beautiful Melody (Hsu Feng, A Touch of Zen, Dragon Inn). As malicious spirits attempt to steal the sutra, Ho becomes entangled in a conflict between duelling forces of good and evil. Will he leave the mountain alive? Adapted from a Song Dynasty folk tale, Legend of the Mountain exemplifies King Hu's masterful command of spectacular visuals and philosophical insights into life and existence. Heavily edited upon release, the film has now been fully restored to its original length in stunning 4K, and The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film for the first time ever on home video in the UK, in a special Dual Format edition.

    Silence And Cry An elliptical, claustrophobic drama shot in the brilliant, breathtaking long takes that are Jancsó s trademark, Silence and Cry is set after the fall of the short-lived Hungarian Soviet Republic of 1919. A young Red soldier, fleeing the anti-Communist manhunt, takes refuge at the isolated farm of a peasant family, who are already under police scrutiny for being politically suspect... Working on a more intimate canvas, following the epic The Round-Up and The Red and the White (of which this film forms the final part of an unofficial trilogy ) Hungarian master Jancsó's film is still very much concerned with the terrible, tyrannical impact of power, politics and history. Features: Silence and Cry (1968) presented from a brand new 2K restoration of the film by the Hungarian Digital Archive and Film Institute, supervised by the film's cinematographer János Kende. Original Hungarian soundtrack in Dual Mono 24-bit LPCM audio Booklet featuring a new essay on the film by critic and film historian Tony Rayns New and improved English subtitle translation.

    Eureka Entertainment to release Japanese Director Nagisa Oshima’s landmark film CRUEL STORY OF YOUTH a shocking tale of youthful delinquency in post-Hiroshima Japan on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format edition available from 17 August 2015. This second feature by the Japanese cinema-insurgent Nagisa Ôshima (In the Realm of the Senses Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence) galvanised its home-turf with its topsy-turvy directorial dexterity and stinging castigation of an indolent self-indulgent youth culture reposing on the eve of the turbulent 1960s. When high-schooler Makoto is saved from the advances of a lecherous middle-aged man by uni student Kiyoshi the pair embark on a fits-and-starts affair that finally settles into a sexually extortionary mutually exploitative dependency that promises to spell their relationship’s doom. Ôshima’s breakthrough portrait of alienated youth comes courtesy of the 2014 Shochiku 4K scan that resurrected the film’s glorious colour palette recently described by critic and programmer James Quandt as “running riot with retro: pulsing neon turquoise telephones hair teased into shellacked grandeur.” The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Cruel Story of Youth in a Dual Format edition for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK. Feature: Gorgeous 1080p presentation of the film on Blu-ray from the 2014 4K Shochiku restoration Optional English subtitles New video interview with film critic Tony Rayns Original theatrical trailer 36-page booklet containing an essay interview material and rare archival imagery

    From acclaimed Mexican horror maestro Guillermo Del Toro comes The Devil's Backbone a truly terrifying spine-tingler combining state of the art special effects with towering performances from a combination of Latin legends (Federico Luppi and Marisa Paredes) and younger stars (Eduardo Noriega from Alejandro Amenabar's Open Your Eyes). A deliciously dark horror The Devil's Backbone tells the tale of a remote Spanish orphanage during the final days of The Spanish Civil War whose young inhabitants are brutally terrorised by Santi a decomposing spirit who stalks the building's dark decaying hallways. But as the film builds to a grisly explosive finale the children learn the true story of Santi's death and rise up to vow a deadly vengeance on his vicious murderer. Produced by Pedro Almodovar and brilliantly photographed for maximum suspence by leading cinematographer Guillermo Navarra The Devil's Backbone is a truly haunting memorable ghost story.

  • The Mystery Of Picasso [Blu-ray] The Mystery Of Picasso | Blu Ray | (22/01/2018) from £14.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    The Mystery Of Picasso Henri-Georges Clouzot, best known for his classic French thriller Les Diaboliques, took on a different mystery in 1956: the creative process and the essence of an artist, namely Pablo Picasso. Utilising transparent canvases so the camera of Claude Renoir could directly capture an artwork s creation, Picasso created 20 artworks for the film. At first, these are simple sketches in marker, but each grows in complexity until the final reel, when The Mystery of Picasso switches to a CinemaScope ratio and bursts into colour. One of the greatest documentary portraits of an artist of work, this release is accompanied by two other films of Picasso: Paul Haesaerts BAFTA-winning A Visit to Picasso from 1949 and a charming home movie by fellow artist Man Ray. Features: High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation, from materials supplied by Gaumont Original French mono audio (uncompressed LPCM) Optional English subtitles A Visit to Picasso, Paul Haesaerts 1949 BAFTA-winning documentary on the painter, capturing Picasso at work in his Vallauris studio La Garoupe, a 1937 home movie by Man Ray, in black and white and colour, of Picasso and friends holidaying near Antibes Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by maarko phntm FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Illustrated collector s booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and illustrator John Coulthart

  • Untouchable [Blu-ray] Untouchable | Blu Ray | (04/02/2013) from £5.39  |  Saving you £19.60 (78.40%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Driss (Omar Sy), a Senegalese man living in a Paris slum, applies for a job as caretaker to a wealthy quadriplegic, but all he wants is to get his paper stamped so he can get benefits. Despite his lack of qualifications, he lands the job because of his attitude: Philippe (François Cluzet), the quadriplegic, wants a caretaker who will look at him without pity. As Driss reluctantly learns to move, feed, and clean Philippe, the two men discover a blunt but vital humour that not only bridges the cultural and class divide between them, but gives Philippe a renewed joy in life. It's easy to see what made Untouchable such a massive success in France; the movie has the sweet sincerity and uplifting conclusion that make for a classic feel-good experience. The chemistry between the two leads is undeniable, and Sy--who won the French equivalent of the Oscar for his role--is a dynamic and charismatic performer, while Cluzet's understated performance conveys Philippe's frustrations. The movie doesn't dig too deeply into the struggles of life as a quadriplegic or the struggles of life among the inner-city poor, so when Untouchable ends it's not likely to leave a lasting impression, but that doesn't get in the way of its immediate charm and warmth. --Bret Fetzer

  • Diary of a Lost Girl [Masters of Cinema] Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) Diary of a Lost Girl Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) | Blu Ray | (24/11/2014) from £9.98  |  Saving you £10.01 (50.10%)  |  RRP £19.99

    A masterwork of the German silent cinema whose reputation has only increased over time Diary of a Lost Girl [Tagebuch einer Verlorenen] traces the journey of a young woman from the pit of despair to the moment of personal awakening. Directed with virtuoso flair by the great G. W. Pabst Diary of a Lost Girl represents the final pairing of the filmmaker with screen icon Louise Brooks mere months after their first collaboration in the now-legendary Pandora’s Box [Die Büchse der Pandora]. Brooks plays Thymian Henning an unprepossessing young woman seduced by an unscrupulous and mercenary character employed at her father’s pharmacy (played with gusto by Fritz Rasp the degenerate villain of such Fritz Lang classics as Metropolis Spione and Frau im Mond). After Thymian gives birth to his child and rejects her family’s expectations for marriage the baby is stripped from her care and Thymian enters a purgatorial reform school that seems less an institute of higher learning than a conduit for fulfilling the headmistress’s sadistic sexual fantasies. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this glorious restoration of an iconic German film for the first time anywhere on Blu-ray. Special Features New high-definition 1080p presentation of the film on the Blu-ray Original German intertitles with optional English subtitles Piano score of Javier Pérez de Aspeitia New and exclusive video essay by filmmaker and critic David Cairns 40-PAGE BOOKLET including writing by Louise Brooks Lotte Eisner Louelle Interim Craig Keller and R.

    Fritz Lang’s penultimate silent film Spione [Spies] is a flawlessly constructed labyrinthine spy thriller. Hugely influential Lang’s famous passion for meticulous detail combines with masterful story-telling and editing skills to form a relentless tale of intrigue espionage and blackmail. An international spy ring headed by Haghi (Rudolf Klein-Rogge) uses technology threats and murder to obtain government secrets. As master spy president of a bank and music hall clown Haghi leads several lives using instruments of modern technology to spearhead a mad rush for secrets — secrets that assert his power over others. Setting in stone for the first time many elements of the modern spy thriller Spione perhaps represents the zenith of Lang's silent artistry. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Spione in a Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) edition.

  • Amelie [2001][Blu-ray] Amelie | Blu Ray | (17/10/2011) from £7.93  |  Saving you £10.06 (55.90%)  |  RRP £17.99

    With its use of special effects to express the main character's internal emotions, Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Amelie could have been mistaken for a French version of Ally McBeal; however, unlike Ally--"woe is me for I cannot find a man"--McBeal, Amelie is not distressed by the lack of men in her life, in fact the whole idea of sex seems to amuse her no end. Basic pleasures such as cracking the top of a Crème Brule offer her all the sensual satisfaction she needs and her existence in the "Paris of Dreams" is the stuff of fairy tales. Indeed, this cinematic treat must have worked wonders for the Paris tourist board: Jeunet's beautiful interpretation of Parisian life is depicted in all the vibrant colours you would expect from the director of Delicatessen. On the DVD: Amelie has received an additional disc for this special edition release. Disc 1 is the same as the original single-disc release, with a choice of DTS or Dolby 5.1 sound and an 16.9 anamorphic widescreen picture with optional director's commentary. The second disc contains the new special features and, just like original disc, a lot of thought has gone into the access menu with its lavish graphics offering the choice of entering the Café, the Canal or the Station. Yet the most exciting extra in name--"Audrey Tautou's funny face"--is simply a series of out-takes which does little more than allow you to warm to Tautou as a person. The home movie includes the transformation of Tautou into Amelie and the creation of the "photo-booth album". There are also interesting interviews with Jeunet and the cast and crew, and a nice little section themed around the gnome and his travels. Along with this is a storyboard-to-screen exposition, behind-the-scenes pictures, scene tests, teasers and trailers. All in all a decent enough package, but hardly warranting the special edition label. It's hard not to wonder why Momentum didn't offer this set two months earlier. --Nikki Disney

  • Man with a Movie Camera (and other works by Dziga Vertov) (1929) [Masters of Cinema] 2-Disc Blu-ray edition Man with a Movie Camera (and other works by Dziga Vertov) (1929) 2-Disc Blu-ray edition | Blu Ray | (17/07/2017) from £14.09  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    "An experiment in the creative communication of visible events without the aid of inter-titles, a scenario or theatre "aiming at creating a truly international absolute language of cinema," is how the inter-titles describe what is about to be seen. Bold claims indeed, but in its awesome sophistication The Man with a Movie Camera does live up to them, making it one of the most contemporary of silent movies. The subject, the life of a city from dawn to dusk, was not original even for 1928, but its treatment was--the cameraman as voyeur, social commentator and prankster, exploiting every trick permissible with the technology of the day (slow motion, dissolves, split screens, freeze frames, stop motion animation, etc). A young woman stirs in her bed, apparently fighting a nightmare in which a cameraman is about to be crushed by an oncoming train. She wakes up, and the sequence is revealed to be a simple trick shot. As she blinks her weary eyes, the shutters of her window mimic her viewpoint, and the iris of the camera spins open. Self-reflexive wit like this abounds here--there's even a delicious counterpoint made between the splicing of film and the painting of a woman's nails.The film was the brainchild of the Moscow-based film-maker Dziga Vertov (real name Denis Arkadyevich Kaufman), a furiously inventive poet of the cinema who made innumerable shorts about daily life (such as the much-quoted "Kino-Pravda"), and played at candid camerawork and cinema vérité long before they became the clichés of the television age. The editing has a fantastic abandon that makes most pop videos look sluggish. --David Thompson
