French director JACQUES DEMY didn't just make movieshe created an entire cinematic world. Demy launched his glorious feature filmmaking career in the sixties, a decade of astonishing invention in his national cinema. He stood out from the crowd of his fellow New Wavers, however, by filtering his self-conscious formalism through deeply emotional storytelling. Fate and coincidence, doomed love, and storybook romance surface throughout his films, many of which are further united by the intersecting lives of characters who either appear or are referenced across titles. Demy's filmswhich range from musical to melodrama to fantasiaare triumphs of visual and sound design, camera work, and music, and they are galvanized by the great stars of French cinema at their centres, including ANOUK AIMÃE, CATHERINE DENEUVE, and JEANNE MOREAU. The works collected here, made from the sixties to the eighties, touch the heart and mind in equal measure. LOLA JACQUES DEMY's crystalline debut gave birth to the fictional universe in which so many of his characters would live, play, and love. It's among his most profoundly felt films, a tale of crisscrossing lives in Nantes (Demy's hometown) that floats on waves of longing and desire. Heading the film's ensemble is the enchanting ANOUK AIMÃE (8 1/2) as the title character, a cabaret chanteuse; she's awaiting the return of a long-lost lover and unwilling to entertain the adoration of another love-struck soul, the wanderer Roland (Le trou's MARC MICHEL). Humane, wistful, and witty, Lola is a testament to the resilience of the heartbroken. BAY OF ANGELS This precisely wrought, emotionally penetrating romantic drama from JACQUES DEMY, set largely in the casinos of Nice, is a visually lovely but darkly pragmatic investigation into love and obsession. A bottle-blonde JEANNE MOREAU (Jules and Jim) is at her blithe best as a gorgeous gambling addict, and CLAUDE MANN (Army of Shadows) is the bank clerk drawn into her risky world. Featuring a glittering score by MICHEL LEGRAND, Bay of Angels is among Demy's most somber works. THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG An angelically beautiful CATHERINE DENEUVE (Belle de jour) was launched into stardom by this glorious musical heart tugger from JACQUES DEMY. She plays an umbrella-shop owner's delicate daughter, glowing with first love for a handsome garage mechanic, played by NINO CASTELNUOVO (The English Patient). When the boy is shipped off to fight in Algeria, the two lovers must grow up quickly. Exquisitely designed in a kaleidoscope of colors, and told entirely through the lilting songs of the great composer MICHEL LEGRAND, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time. THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT JACQUES DEMY followed up The Umbrellas of Cherbourg with another musical about missed connections and second chances, this one a more effervescent confection. Twins Delphine and Solange, a dance instructor and a music teacher (played by real-life sisters CATHERINE DENEUVE and FRANÃOISE DORLÃAC), dream of big-city life; when a fair comes through their quiet port town, so does the possibility of escape. With its jazzy MICHEL LEGRAND score, pastel paradise of costumes, and divine supporting cast (GEORGE CHAKIRIS, GROVER DALE, DANIELLE DARRIEUX, MICHEL PICCOLI, and GENE KELLY), The Young Girls of Rochefort is a tribute to Hollywood optimism from sixties French cinema's preeminent dreamer. DONKEY SKIN In this lovingly crafted, wildly quirky adaptation of a classic French fairy tale, JACQUES DEMY casts CATHERINE DENEUVE as a princess who must go into hiding as a scullery maid in order to fend off an unwanted marriage proposal from her own father, the king (Orpheus's JEAN MARAIS)! A topsy-turvy riches-to-rags fable featuring songs by MICHEL LEGRAND, Donkey Skin creates a tactile fantasy world that's perched on the border between the earnest and the satiric, and features DELPHINE SEYRIG (Last Year at Marienbad) in a delicious supporting role as a fashionable fairy godmother. UNE CHAMBRE EN VILLE In this musical melodrama set against the backdrop of a workers' strike in Nantes, DOMINIQUE SANDA (The Conformist) plays a young woman who wishes to leave her brutish fiancÃ© (Contempt's MICHEL PICCOLI) for an earthy steelworker (The Valet's RICHARD BERRY), though he is engaged to another. Unbeknownst to the girl, the object of her affection boards with her no-nonsense baroness mother (The Earrings of Madame de . . .'s DANIELLE DARRIEUX). A late-career triumph from JACQUES DEMY, Une chambre en ville received nine CÃ©sar Award nominations and features a rich, operatic score by MICHEL COLOMBIER (Purple Rain). Features New 2K digital restorations of all six films, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks on the Blu-rays of Lola and Bay of Angels and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and 2.0 surround soundtracks on the Blu-rays of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, The Young Girls of Rochefort, Donkey Skin, and Une chambre en ville Two documentaries by filmmaker AgnÃ¨s Varda: The World of Jacques Demy (1995) and The Young Girls Turn 25 (1993) Four short films by director Jacques Demy: Les horizons morts (1951), Le sabotier du Val de Loire (1956), Ars (1959), and La luxure (1962) Jacques Demy A to Z, a new visual essay by film critic James Quandt Two archival interviews from French television with Demy and composer Michel Legrand, one on The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and the other on The Young Girls of Rochefort French television interview from 1962 with actor Jeanne Moreau on the set of Bay of Angels Once Upon a Time . . .

As a Christmas treat in the late 1960s and 70s, the BBC produced adaptations of ghost stories based on the works of MR James, the Cambridge academic and author of some of the most spine-tingling tales in the English language, which were broadcast to terrified viewers in the dead of winter. This was a tradition that was briefly revived by the BBC between 2007 and 2010. These adaptations, which have a subtlety and style all of their own, have been a major influence on many contemporary British horror filmmakers and have come to be some of the most sought after British TV titles of all time by their legions of eager fans. Episode Comprise: Whistle and I’ll Come to You. The Stalls of Barchester. A Warning to the Curious. Lost Hearts. The Treasure of Abbot Thomas. The Ash Tree. The Signalman. Stigma. The Ice House. A View from a Hill. Number 13.
England's World Cup Magic is a limited edition box-set celebrating the England football team and its current incarnation's qualification for the 2002 World Cup, featuring over six hours of action on three discs. England's Dream Ticket follows England from the ignominious Wembley defeat at the hands of Germany to the last-gasp Beckham-bender at Old Trafford against Greece. Highlights of all the matches, including friendlies against Spain, Mexico and Holland are interspersed with episodes on Sven and Wembley, and capture a sense of the media-frenzy that follows the team. Germany 1 England 5 charts that glorious September 2001 evening, offering the full BBC (Motson, Brooking) coverage of the match. Finally, The England Collection is an entertaining though somewhat flawed hall-of-fame, featuring 50 players who have graced the England team (three keepers, 13 defenders, 18 midfielders, 16 strikers). Some of the selections and omissions are hard to understand, and there is a distinct bias towards the post-1980s, presumably because of lack of rights to footage. Extra sections on 30 best goals, the Next Generation and Bloopers, are fun but still missing valuable players. On the DVD: Englands World Cup Magic contains lots of extras spread across the three discs, including scene selection; exclusive interviews with Sven and his assistant Tord Grip; England U21 match highlights; text-only match statistics and player profiles; montages of top 10 qualification goals. The England Collection is essentially a file of nearly 100 programmes of around 60 seconds each and is poorly served by the technology--viewers have no option but to trawl through the bulk of the clips one at a time. --Alex Hankin

THE CHAPLIN REVUE The Chaplin Revue consists of three highly acclaimed short silent comedies featuring Chaplin's famous trademark character, the Little Tramp. A Dog's Life (1918) The Little Tramp and his dog companion struggle to survive in the inner city... Shoulder Arms (1918) Chaplin features as a boot camp private who has a dream of being a hero who goes on a daring mission behind enemy lines... The Pilgrim (1923) Featuring the Tramp as an escaped convict who is mistaken as a pastor in a small town church... CITY LIGHTS Wandering the city streets, the Little Tramp happens upon a blind flower girl who mistakes him for a wealthy gentleman, and manages to save and befriend a drunken millionaire who is trying to drown himself in the river. A world of disenchanted bourgeoisie, where social structure and class are misconceived and questioned at every turn, City Lights has gone down in history as not only one of Chaplin's best films but one of the best ever committed to celluloid. THE CIRCUS The Little Tramp is hired by a circus and soon becomes the main attraction when his comedic blunders drive the crowd wild. Yet he himself is unaware of this newly acquired eminence due to his tunnel vision of love for the ringmaster's daughter. The Circus features one of the most memorable appearances by the Little Tramp where Chaplin delivers a whirlwind of visual gags that are quite literally show stopping.
