Masters of Cinema adds Chabrol, Clouzot, more Antonioni, Kawashima and Yamanaka
Eureka Entertainment's connoisseur label, Masters of Cinema, has just announced a new batch of titles hitting UK Blu-ray and DVD in March and April of next year, including fantastic new restorations of films by New Wave auteur Claude Chabrol, Italian maestro Michaelangelo Antonioni and French supremo Henri-Georges Clouzot, as well as Japanese masters Kawashima Yuzo and Yamanaka Sadao.
In March, Claude Chabrol joins the collection for the first time with releases of Le Beau Serge and Les Cousins, alongside fellow Frenchman Henri-Georges Clouzot, whose comedy thriller The Murderer Lives at 21 also makes its debut. April sees the release of Michaelangelo Antonioni's La Notte, but perhaps more exciting are the releases of Kawashima Yuzo's A Sun-Tribe Myth from the Bakumatsu Era, and the entire surviving oeuvre of fellow Japanese filmmaker Yamanaka Sadao, which includes existing MoC title Humanity & Paper Balloons.
More information will follow in the run-up to these releases, including details of special features, new transfer details and even clips and trailers. All of these titles will be available in both Blu-ray and DVD format, with the exception of the Yamanaka set, which will be DVD-only. Watch this space for more details, but in the meantime here is a selection of trailers and clips for some of these titles, as well as the packshots.
