R245 Discovery Miles 2 450 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The Sign Of Leo (Le Signe Du Lion) 1962
Eric Rohmer’s debut feature tells the cautionary tale of a Paris-based American, born under the sign of Leo and confident that luck is on his side.

Suzanne’s Career (La Carriere De Suzanne) 1963

Ikiru (Japanese, DVD): Akira Kurosawa Ikiru (Japanese, DVD)
Akira Kurosawa; Starring Takashi Shimura 2
R316 Discovery Miles 3 160 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The story of a man diagnosed with stomach cancer, Kurosawa's film is a serious contemplation of the nature of existence and the question of how we find meaning in our lives.

Opening with a shot of an x-ray, showing the main character's stomach, Ikiru tells the tale of a dedicated, downtrodden civil servant who, diagnosed with a fatal cancer, learns to change his dull, unfulfilled existence, and suddenly discovers a zest for life.

Plunging first into self-pity, then a bout of hedonistic pleasure-seeking on the frenetic streets of post-war Tokyo, Watanabe - the film's hero - finally finds satisfaction through building a children's playground.

Beautifully played by Takashi Shimura (who starred in 21 of Kurosawa's films), Ikiru is an intensely lyrical and moving film, and was one of Kurosawa's own favourites.

In black & white.

Three Colours Red (French, DVD): Krzysztof Kieslowski Three Colours Red (French, DVD)
Krzysztof Kieslowski; Starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, Irene Jacob 2
R110 Discovery Miles 1 100 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

The third and final part of Kieslowski's trilogy has been acclaimed as his masterpiece. Immaculately played by an extraordinary cast, Red masterfully plays on Kieslowski's interpretation of brotherhood and destiny.

Irene Jacob is stunning as young model who meets retired judge by chance when she rescues his dog from a car accident. Jean-Louise Trintignant is utterly compelling as the embittered judge who spends his days eavesdropping on his neighbors' phone conversations. Their initially fiery relationship mellows into a close friendship that ultimately liberates them both.

A final twist of fate reveals the destinies of the characters from all three parts of the trilogy

In French with English subittles.

At a decadent 1930s party, two very sexy and utterly shameless young women, Nathalie and Éliane, make a bet with a rich and handsome young Baron to corrupt two innocent teenagers in order to ruin their families' reputations. The prize on offer is marriage to the wealthy Baron.

The innocent and beautiful Nathalie, the illegitimate child of an aristocrat, seeks revenge on her father, Leroy-Murville. She is hired as the private teacher of her half-sister, sexy Sophie, and revenge takes shape using the most depraved teaching methods.

Meanwhile, the seductive Eliane sets out to corrupt the teenage son of Colonel Montvilliers using similarly perverse methods.

What you will see in this highly charged Sadean journey into sexual depravity and corruption of the innocent will astound you. Prepare yourself for scenes of masturbation, incest, lesbianism, bondage and all manner of unspeakably depraved sexual acts, together with a grand display of some of the finest lingerie in this classic example of French erotica.

Previously only available in a heavily censored version, Dressage can finally be fully appreciated in its fully uncut sexual glory for the first time.

Code Unknown - Subtitled (French, DVD): Juliette Binoche Code Unknown - Subtitled (French, DVD)
Juliette Binoche; Directed by Michael Haneke 1
R127 Discovery Miles 1 270 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

On a busy Paris boulevard, a youth scornfully tosses a crumpled paper bag into the outstretched hands of a beggar woman.

This is the bond which, for an instant, links several very different characters: Anne, an actress; her war photo- grapher boyfriend Georges; his farmer father and younger brother Jean, who, contrary to his father's wishes, has no interest in inheriting the farm; Amandou, a music teacher for deaf-mute children, and his family, who originate from Africa; and Maria a Romanian immigrant.

Written and directed by Michael Haneke, one of modern cinema's most distinctive and ambitious directors, Code Unknown is a complex film of powerful emotional force and a fascinating study of the subtle connections and barriers between people, social class, race, and the difficulty of communicating in the modern world.

In French with English subtitles.
