A key work of German silent cinema and an international smash on its release, E. A. Dupont’s Varieté (Variety) is an audacious revenge melodrama set under the canvas of the big top. When Boss Huller (the iconic Emil Jannings) meets the young émigré Berta-Marie (Lya De Putti), it kindles his desire to relaunch his career as a trapeze artist, stalled due to an injury and the pressures of domestic life. But with passion comes obsession, and with the involvement of the famed Artinelli into their act, tensions rise to a fever pitch. Visually astonishing, with some of the most inventive camerawork of the 1920s, and a typically intense and vivid central performance from Jannings, Varieté is presented here in an all-new restoration of the original German version. Featuring three scores: one by Stephen Horne, one by The Tiger Lillies, and one by Johannes Contag. DUAL FORMAT SPECIAL FEATURES New 2015 high-definition digital restoration by the FWMS Three scores: one by Stephen Horne, one by The Tiger Lillies, and one by Johannes Contag PCM audio on the Blu-ray Optional English subtitles for the German intertitles The complete American version of the film PLUS: A booklet featuring new writing on the film and archival images

Early Murnau (Five Films)
32,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

One of the most influential and revered figures in all of cinema, Friedrich Wilheim Murnau came to prominence in the first half of the 1920's with a diverse string of productions ranging from buoyant satire to swirling psychological drama. Five key works are presented here: Schloß Vogelöd, Phantom, Die Finanzen des Großherzogs (the Grand Duke's Finances, Der Letzte Mann (The Last Laugh) and Tartuffe.In the sinister mystery Schloß Vogelöd, terrible secrets from the past threaten a group of aristocrats' gathering at a country manor. In the delirious Phantom, an aspiring poet's change encounter with a beautiful woman leads into obsession and deception. The delightful Die Finanzen des Großherzogs sees a rakish-but-impoverished duke setting out to rebuild his fortune via blissfully comic high adventure on the Mediterranean coast. In Der Letzte Mann, one of the undisputed masterpieces of the silent era, Emil Jannings gives an overwhelming performance as a hotel porter with dreams of a higher station in life, and was a stylistic breakthrough for both Murnau and cinema in general. Finally, the slyly satiric Tartuffe features Jannings as Moliere's iconic creation in a morality tale film-within-a-film as only Murnau could conceive.This collection features new high-definition transfers of all five films from the finest archival elements, all on Blu-ray for the first time in a special edition three-disc set.Click Images to Enlarge

The Birth of a Nation (Masters of Cinema)
11,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

One of the most artistically significant and controversial motion pictures ever made, D. W. Griffith's silent epic The Birth of a Nation was a massive commercial success at the time of its release, owing to its dynamic storytelling and its breakthrough developments in cinema language that have become common traits of practically every film that has since followed. However, the picture's legacy is one that continues to elicit outrage over its vulgar depictions of African-Americans and its deceptive historiography of the United States in the second half of the nineteenth century. The Birth of a Nation begins depicting the amiable relationship between two families, Northern and Southern, and the way in which the impending Civil War intensifies the conflict of their worldviews. Following the end of the war and the assassination of President Lincoln, a lawless chaos courses throughout the Reconstruction South, and the Ku Klux Klan is formed to take on a rising black militia and impose a vengeful vigilante justice across their land and birthright . It's a film that's deeply divisive even to the senses of a single viewer: images of painterly beauty in composition and tonal quality often exhibit a contemptuous, inflammatory coarseness with regard to subject matter; just as frequently, long tracts evince an innocent, terrifically lyrical grandeur. Griffith would attempt to make amends for the moral schism of this schizophrenic epic in his next film, Intolerance, but The Birth of a Nation cannot - and should not - remain unseen, or undiscussed: it is a great, and terrible, masterpiece. The Masters of Cinema Series releases Griffith's three-hour epic, including a series of the director's Civil War shorts, for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK.

Nosferatu - Limited Edition Steelbook

Jonathan Harker (Bruno Ganz, Downfall) lives with his young wife Lucy (Isabelle Adjani, Possession in the idyllic town of Wismar, where he works as an estate agent. In spite of grim omens, Harker ventures deep into the Carpathian Mountains to close a property deal with Count Dracula (Klaus Kinski, Aguirre, and Wrath of God), a sickly, wrath-like creature with sunken eyes and pallid skin. While dining that night at the Count's ghostly castle, Harker cuts his finger, provoking a disturbing reaction to his host. Werner Herzog's masterful contribution to the vampire canon is both a discerning tribute to F W Murnau's 1922 silent classic, and a singularly atmospheric and thoughtful horror film in its own right. Kinski's central performance, Herzog's images and Popul Vuh's music combine to create a darkly hypnotic and seductive experience. This specially-designed, limited edition SteelBook is released ahead of an extensive Werner Herzog box set from the BFI, which will include newly remastered HD presentations of 17 of his greatest feature films and shorts. Special Features: Limited Edition SteelBook Newly Remastered Presentations of the English and German versions Original Mono Audio (German and English) Alternative 5.1 Surround audio (German) Feature-Length Audio Commentary with Werner Herzog On-set Documentary (1979, 13 mins): Promotional Film Featuring Candid Interviews with Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski Original Theatrical Trailer Stills Gallery Fully Illustrated Booklet with a new Essay by Laurie Johnson, Full Film Credits and on-set Photographs Cast and Crew: Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn, Encounters at the End of the World).

An iconic film of the German expressionist cinema, and one of the most famous of all silent movies, F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror continues to haunt - and, indeed, terrify - modern audiences with the unshakable power of its images. By teasing a host of occult atmospherics out of dilapidated set-pieces and innocuous real-world locations alike, Murnau captured on celluloid the deeply-rooted elements of a waking nightmare, and launched the signature Murnau-style that would change cinema history forever. In this first-ever screen adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, a simple real-estate transaction leads an intrepid businessman deep into the superstitious heart of Transylvania. There he encounters the otherworldly Count Orlok - portrayed by the legendary Max Schreck, in a performance the very backstory of which has spawned its own mythology - who soon after embarks upon a cross-continental voyage to take up residence in a distant new land... and establish his ambiguous dominion. As to whether the count's campaign against the plague-wracked populace erupts from satanic decree, erotic compulsion, or the simple impulse of survival - that remains, perhaps, the greatest mystery of all in this film that's like a blackout... Remade by Werner Herzog in 1979 (and inspiring films as diverse as Abel Ferrara's King of New York and The Addiction, and E. Elias Merhige's Shadow of the Vampire), F. W. Murnau's surreal 1922 cine-fable remains the original and landmark entry in the entire global tradition of the horror film . The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present, newly restored on 1080p Blu-ray at long last, Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror in its definitive restoration, complete with original intertitles and accompanied by the score that played with the film at the time of its initial release. Special Features: Two audio commentaries: one newly recorded by film historian David Kalat; the second by historian R. Dixon Smith and critic Brad Stevens The Language of Shadows, a 53-minute documentary on Murnau's early years and the filming of Nosferatu New video interview with BFI Film Classics Nosferatu author Kevin Jackson Newly translated English subtitles with original German intertitles More surprises to be revealed closer to release date! PLUS: a 56-page booklet featuring writings and rare imagery
