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).

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.

Alchemy - the mystic science of transmutation. Gifted alchemists can break down and reconstruct matter using the 'Law of Equivalent Exchange ' creating miraculous things. But one taboo can never be broken - human transmutation. The Elric brothers Edward and Alphonse broke the taboo in an attempt to resurrect their late mother and as a result lost everything. Al's soul was transferred to a suit of living armour and Ed lost two limbs confining him to mechanical auto-mail. To recover what they've lost they embarked on a journey to find the fabled Philosopher's Stone. The closer they get to the hidden truth of the Philosopher's Stone the deeper they fall under shadowy schemes and the perils of unnatural creatures. The military nation of Amestris the grudges and hatreds of a persecuted people and the countless tragedies caused by alchemy all form a dark vortex that will draw people and countries into its void. The Elric brothers forge ahead in their quest to transmute despair into hope...

Derek Jarman sadly passed away from HIV-related complications in February 1994, but his legacy lives on. In the twenty years since his death, his work has lost none of its relevance. Jarman's multi-faceted work is inspirational in its fearlessness, yet remains touchingly personal. The dynamism of these features evokes comparison with the bold romanticism of directors Ken Russell (an early champion) and Michael Powell, as well as artists Paul Nash and John Piper. But Jarman was also a subversive force in film. Through the provocativeness of Jubilee, The Tempest and The Angelic Conversation, he invoked Elizabethan occultist Dr John Dee and explored alchemical imagery, a subject in which he was well versed, while in Sebastiane and Caravaggio he revived key gay and homo-erotic figures from the past with edgy and unmistakable style. Derek Jarman's enduring legacy is celebrated in this lavish box set containing his first five features, newly scanned at 2K from original film elements, alongside an exciting array of new and archival extras. Extras: All films presented in High Definition for the first time. Fully illustrated 80-page book with new writing on the film, contemporary reviews and full film credits
