Dormant Beauty DVD


Quote:
Kino Lorber Releases Acclaimed Philosophical Drama Dormant Beauty, a film by Marco Bellocchio (Vincere) and starring
Isabelle Huppert (Amour) on DVD October 28th


Kino Lorber is pleased to announce the DVD release of Dormant Beauty, a film by acclaimed director Marco Bellocchio (Vincere) and starring award-winner Isabelle Huppert (Amour, I Heart Huckabees, In Another Country) in a powerful story about four characters who struggle to find meaning while being faced with some very profound challenges and moral dilemmas in their personal lives. This moving drama was an Official Selection of both the Toronto and Venice International Film Festivals.

Dormant Beauty will street on DVD October 28th, with a SRP of $29.95 and featuring a stills gallery.

SYNOPSIS:
The issue of assisted suicide made national headlines in Italy when the decision was made to end the life of Eluana Englaro, after she spent seventeen years in a vegetative state.

In Dormant Beauty, directed by the great Marco Bellocchio (Vincere), this real-life drama will affect the lives of four characters struggling with their own beliefs. A senator (Toni Servillo, The Great Beauty), forced to vote for a law with which he profoundly disagrees, is torn between his conscience and his loyalty toward the leaders of his party. His daughter (Alba Rohrwacher), a right-to-life activist, falls in live with an advocate (Michele Riondino) for assisted suicide. A famous actress (Isabelle Huppert) turns toward faith and miracle cures in the hope of bringing her daughter out of an irreversible coma, thus neglecting her son who longs for his mother's love. And the beautiful Rossa (Maya Sansa), lost in despair and determined to die, is saved by the young doctor Pallido (Pier Giorgio Bellocchio) and reawakens to life. These converging stories profoundly wrestle with how to find meaning in life in the face of death.

Memphis Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



NEWS/TRAILER
http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=15346

Quote:
Kino Lorber will release on Blu-ray Tim Sutton's new film Memphis (2013). Nominated for Independent Camera Award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Memphis will be available for purchase on January 13, 2015.

Synopsis: A strange singer with god given talent drifts through the mythic city of Memphis under its canopy of ancient oak trees, shattered windows, and burning spirituality. Surrounded by lovers, legends, hustlers, preachers, and a wolfpack of kids, the unstable performer avoids the recording studio and is driven to spend time in his own form of self-discovery. Shown in fragments, his journey drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of another dimension.

Featuring an explosive performance and score from the singular recording artist-cum-wizard, Willis Earl Beal, Memphis is a film steeped in folklore, music, surrealism, and the abstract search for glory.

Special Features:

Booklet Essays by Robert Gordon
Extra Scene-"Willis Meets the Prophet"
On-set Interview with Willis Earl Beal
Podcast Interview with Director Tim Sutton
Teenie and Charles Hodges of the Hi Rhythm Section in session

Jacques Rivette's Le Ponte du Nord is coming to BD on February 17.

Quote:
Le Pont du Nord (1981) is an entrancing puzzle film with the city of Paris as a continually shifting game board. It is one of director Jacques Rivette's most mysterious and haunting works, a dark companion piece to Celine and Julie Go Boating (1974).
Marie (Bulle Ogier, L'amour Fou, Maitresse) has just been released from prison, and encounters the paranoid loner Baptiste (Pascale Ogier, Full Moon in Paris). They follow Marie's ex-lover Julien (Pierre Clementi) and his talismanic briefcase as Paris begins to open up to them as a series of enigmatic clues. The city is a labyrinth of possibilities but no certainties, a place of fantastical fables (here be dragons) and the brute realities of the street. Shot on luminous 16mm at exclusively outdoor locations by the great cinematographers William Lubtchansky (Shoah, Every Man for Himself, Regular Lovers) and Caroline Champetier (Holy Motors), Le Pont du Nord is surreal, gorgeous and heartbreaking, and is surely one of Rivette's greatest works.


Special Features: Booklet with Original Press Notes and essay by Dennis Lim, Mapping LE PONT DU NORD, an image-essay by Roland-Francois Lack | COMPOSITES, a video-essay by Gina Telaroli
The Retrieval (2013) is coming to BD on February 3.

Quote:
1864: as war ravages the nation, on the outskirts of the civil War, it is business as usual for slave-owners and traders. The Retrieval follows Will (Ashton Sanders), a fatherless thirteen-year-old boy who survives by working with a white bounty hunter gang. They send him to earn the trust of runaway slaves in order to lure them back to the south.
On a dangerous mission into the free north to find Nate (Tishuan Scott), a fugitive freedman, things go wrong and Will and Nate find themselves on the run. As the bond between them unexpectedly grows, Will becomes consumed by conflicting emotions as he faces a gut-wrenching final decision. Thrilling, but grounded in historical research, The Retrieval serves as an insight into the grey period between slavery and freedom and the horrific moral dilemma that comes with being forced to betray your fellow man.

Wow - didn't see that one coming. And with some strong enough extras to offer some serious competition to the MoC edition.

Honey DVD



Quote:
Irene lives alone on the coastline outside Rome. To her father and her married lover, she's a student. In reality, she often travels to Mexico where she can legally buy a powerful barbiturate. Working under the name of Miele ("Honey"), her clandestine job is to help terminally-ill people to die with dignity by giving them the drug. One day she supplies a new client with a fatal dose, only to find out he's perfectly healthy but tired of life. Irene is determined not to be responsible for his suicide. From this point on, Irene and Grimaldi are unwillingly locked in an intense and moving relationship which will change Irene's life forever.

DVD PRESS RELEASE

Kino Lorber Releases Daniel Auteuil's celebrated adaptations of Marius & Fanny, based on the works by Marcel Pagnol

Both acclaimed films to become available together on DVD in Special 2-Disc Set on December 9th


Marius & Fanny DVD



Quote:
Kino Lorber is proud to announce the release of Daniel Auteuil's celebrated adaptations of Marcel Pagnol's timeless stories Marius & Fanny, in a special 2-disc DVD set that presents both of these sweeping, beautiful melodramas together, giving viewers the chance to own these acclaimed films in one set.

The DVD is set to street on December 9th, with a SRP of $34.95, including bonus features such as featurettes, stills gallery, and trailers.

Marius and Fanny were released theatrically by Kino Lorber earlier in 2014, opening in New York before moving on to other national markets. Film Journal International called the films "Utterly delightful".

In addition to writing and directing, award-winning actor Daniel Auteuil (Queen Margot) appears in both films in the role of César, the owner of a small cafe in the port city of Marseilles. Victoire Bélézy (who won the Rendez-Vous First Prize for a Female Actress at the 2013 Cabourg Romantic Film Festival for her performance in Fanny) stars as Fanny, a beautiful fishmonger who is in love with César's son Marius, played by Raphaël Personnaz (winner of the Lumiere Award for Most Promising Young Actor for his performance in Marius). Together the two of them face challenges that test their feelings for one another and require them to make important decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. Daniel Auteuil previously adapted Pagnol's The Well-Digger's Daughter for the screen in 2011.

SYNOPSIS:
Marius and Fanny are the first two parts of Marcel Pagnol's classic trilogy following the loves and losses of a Marseilles port community. Actor and director Daniel Auteuil (The Well-Digger's Daughter) has faithfully and beautifully recreated the grand emotions of these beloved texts.

Marius (Raphaël Personnaz) is the strapping young son of César (Auteuil), a blustery café owner. Marius has known and adored the pretty fishmonger Fanny (Victoire Bélézy) since they were children, but he is torn between his love for her and his love for the sea. Fanny, meanwhile, is being courted by the kindly old shop-owner (Jean-Pierre Darrousin), who offers wealth and stability. Marius and Fanny are torn between their freedom and responsibility, and every decision they make leads to greater heartbreak. With its brilliant and beautiful performances, Marius and Fanny are soaring, satisfying melodramas that would make Pagnol proud.

Marius: 1.85:1. 16x9 / 93 minutes / French with Optional English subtitles / Color
Fanny: 1.85:1. 16x9 / 102 minutes / French with Optional English subtitles / Color

Bonus Features:
Featurettes

The OP of this thread could use some TLC. It isn't up to date and hasn't been for awhile. For instance, the titles being released by Kino recommended by Scorpion Releasing are not listed.

One example is:



Also, the Kino Classics group at the top of the OP started to list the Kino Lorber Studio Classics line, but then quit. Since the KLSC line has its own thread, these should be removed. Ever since the KLSC thread started, traffic has tended to move there, including misplaced posts that should have gone here.

This thread has kind of languished and if the OP were cleaned up it would be more useful. Just pointing all this out because I tend to use the OP to track my Kino wishlist and upcoming releases. It would be greatly appreciated if it were brought up to date. Not sure who is doing this now. I think Pro-B updates some of the foreign titles that he posts in the discussion (thanks for that, BTW).

Good observation . If any of the regular contributors wishes to update the op...please send me a pm to see what we can work out. Personally, I REALLY need to update the Blue Underground thread .

Well, that really sucks. I have the first three of those already. I hate these kinds of box set releases that punish the fans who kept up with the releases (see also: Spielberg box!).

Actually, now that I look up those two exclusive movies, everyone says they're awful and a waste of time anyway, so now I don't feel so bad! Home Before Midnight sounds like it might be pretty good. I can definitely vouch for Frightmare being a legit horror classic, I'd put it right up there with the best of 70s horror. House of Mortal Sin is a very solid horror-thriller, too. I don't think these movies get much attention here and they deserve it.

Such a shame that the first word we've heard from Redemption in months involves box-set exclusives!

Hopefully this means more BDs might be on the horizon? I'm still looking out for that illusive #13 to complete the collection so far.
