Eric Rohmer 1
R429 Discovery Miles 4 290 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Eric Rohmer's reputation was established with his ambitious Moral Tales series of films, each based around a common theme - in his words: 'a man meeting a woman at the very moment when he is about to commit himself to someone else'.

The Girl At The Monceau Bakery (1962)
Barbet Schroeder plays a young man whose affections are divided between two beautiful girls - one he meets on the street and another who works in a local bakery - but finds himself faced with the dilemma of choosing between them.

Suzanne's Career (1963)
In Rohmer’s tale of adolescent naiveté, Bertrand, a shy and reserved student, finds himself consumed with jealousy and resentment as he observes his roguishly confident best friend Guillaume exploit the generosity of the sweetly seductive Suzanne.

La Collectionneuse (1967)
Left to his own devices when his fiancée goes to London, Adrien decides to spend his vacation experimenting with monastic life in the peace and quiet of a large house in St Tropez. However, the villa already has two occupants: his artist friend Daniel and Haydée, a woman he does not know. Haydée collects lovers and comes home at all hours of the night, disturbing Adrien’s ascetic pursuits, yet despite his resistance, Adrien finds himself beginning to surrender to her charms. The third in the Moral Tales series.

My Night At Maud's (1969)
The film that propelled Rohmer to international acclaim remains one of the finest achievements of his career. The fourth in the Moral Tales series, it tells the story of a chaste and conservative thirty-something who sees a woman that he believes will be his perfect match whilst attending church. But when he unwittingly spends the night at the apartment of the worldly and spirited divorcée Maud, he finds the moral certainties of his life are suddenly thrown into question.

Claire's Knee (1970)
The fifth in the Moral Tales series takes a witty look at a man's singular obsession with a much younger woman. Whilst minding a friend’s country estate, Jérôme, recently engaged to his long-term partner, encounters sixteen year-old Laura and a flirtation begins until Jerôme’s roving eye is completely taken by the arrival of her step-sister Claire, whose unaffected sensuality completely bewitches him.

Love In The Afternoon (1972)
In the last of Rohmer's Six Moral Tales we focus on business executive Frederic, who leads a happily married life with wife Helene and enjoys his job as a partner in a small Paris office. He spends his afternoons dreaming of other women, but that's all it ever is - dreaming. Until one day, a mistress of an old friend begins dropping by his office. They begin to meet quite irregularly during the afternoons, until she decides she wants to seduce him, which leaves Frederic with a serious moral dilemma...

Ingmar Bergman
R285 Discovery Miles 2 850 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Through A Glass Darkly
A schizophrenic girl has visions, believing that Gods presence is ever closer. However, as her descent into madness deepens, she becomes the focal point for the emotions of three men. In challenging the traditional notions of God, Bergman's Academy Award winning film is a devastating, harrowing portrayal of the uneasiness and creeping paranoia of contemporary life.

Winter Light
A susceptible and disillusioned fisherman is urged by his wife to seek solace from his local priest. However, the priest is struggling to regain his own belief. Bergman's desire to define man's relationship to God is beautifully played out in the film with stunning character performances and cinematography from the director's favoured collaborator Sven Nykvist.

The Silence
The intimacy of two sisters threatens to destroy them both mentally and physically. Travelling to a foreign city on the brink of war and whose language they do not understand, the setting becomes a metaphor for the strained relationship between the women. This is a shattering vision of emotional isolation and despair in a claustrophobic spiritual void.

All three feature films in black & white and in Swedish with English subtitles.

Two young women lead totally separate lives in France and in Poland, one called Veronique and one called Weronika. They have no blood relation and they and their families have never met, but they are physically identical to one another, and strangely aware of each other’s presence.

Despite their different backgrounds, the two share the same likes and foibles, and above all, both of them have a magnificent sublime voice and an extraordinary musical talent.

Unfortunately each girl suffers from the same, barely detectable, cardiac malformation. They also share the same wisdom, inspiring one to unconsciously avoid making the same mistakes in life as the other...

There are wonderful performances by the whole cast, but Irène Jacob is utterly captivating in the twin roles of Veronique and Weronika, her luminous performance both magical and unsettling.

Completely shut off from the outside world, the now adult children have grown up with their own language, and believe that cats are man-eating predators, aeroplanes flying overhead are toys and small yellow flowers are zombies.

The family's domestic harmony is irrevocably disturbed when their father invites his colleague Christina to service the sexual urges of the son.

Before long, the son and the two daughters are conducting a series of bizarre experiments with sex and violence, and their superficially constructed world of childhood innocence and fantasy threatens to come crashing down around them.

A village in Protestant northern Germany. 1913-1914. On the eve of World War I.

The story of the children and teenagers of a choir run by the village schoolteacher, and their families: the baron, the steward, the pastor, the doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers.

Strange accidents occur and gradually take on the character of a punishment ritual.

Who is behind it all?

The schoolteacher observes, investigates and little by little discovers the incredible truth. Are we being asked to consider whether these events heralded something that would explode years later with the rise of Nazi Germany? Did these events contain the germs of the tragedies that followed?

Acclaimed auteur Michael Haneke returns to his classic themes of guilt, denial and violence in this haunting and provocative feature which was awarded the Palme d’Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.
