From French New Wave and Italian art cinema classics to lesser known gems from France and Japan, The Masters of Cinema Series remains as eclectic as ever in its March and April 2013 releases – a 6-release slate that includes big name directors Claude Chabrol, Michelangelo Antonioni, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Y?z? Kawashima, and Sadao Yamanaka.
Producer of the Masters of Cinema Series, Andrew Utterson stated “In March, we welcome legendary French director Claude Chabrol into the series for the very first time, with a back-to-back French New Wave double-bill, Le Beau Serge [Handsome Serge] and Les Cousins [The Cousins], alongside fellow French filmmaker Henri-Georges Clouzot’s exquisite comedy-thriller The Murderer Lives at 21 [L’Assassin habite au 21].
More cinematic treats follow in April with a stunning new presentation of Michelangelo Antonioni’s majestic slice of Italian art cinema La notte [The Night] as well as rare treasures in the form of a blazing new restoration of Y?z? Kawashima’s utterly thrilling but long-unavailable-in-the-west Bakumatsu taiy?-den [aka A Sun-Tribe Myth from the Bakumatsu Era] and the collected release of fellow Japanese filmmaker Sadao Yamanaka’s entire surviving works.”
Managing Director of Eureka Entertainment added “Across six standout releases, world and UK home viewing and Blu-ray premières abound, with new restorations aplenty, as we continue our quest to release the very finest in world cinema, using the very best available materials, all with a meticulous attention to design and detail.”
