Rob Roy Academy Award nominee Liam Neeson and Best Actress Oscar winner Jessica Lange give extraordinary performances as the legendary hero who refused to let his enemies destroy his honour and the loyal woman who gave him the courage to fight. When a harsh winter threatens the majestic Scottish Highlands, Rob Roy McGregor (Neeson) is forced to borrow money from the less-than-noble Marquis of Montrose (John Hurt) to provide for his clan. But when Montrose's henchmen (Tim Roth) conspires to take the wealth for himself, Rob is thrust into the most challenging battle of his life: one that escalates into an exhilarating climax that will captivate you to the film's final frame... Kingdom of Heaven An epic film set in Europe and the Middle East, Kingdom Of Heaven follows one man's struggle to better himself and the world around him. Orlando Bloom stars as Balian, a French blacksmith who is mourning the deaths of his wife and baby when his estranged nobleman father (Liam Neeson) arrives and asks him to join the Crusades in Jerusalem. Mindful that conducting the Lord's work will help him atone for his sins, Balian agrees and embarks on the perilous journey. Along the way, he reveals his gifts of inherent goodness and fair treatment of all human beings. Upon reaching Jerusalem, a city where his meagre beginnings no longer matter, Balian earns respect and fealty while secretly courting the capricious wife of the ruthless Guy de Lusignan (Marton Csokas) who seeks a way to destabilise the uneasy Christian-Muslim truce brokered by King Baldwin (Edward Norton) and wage war against his religious enemy... Director Ridley Scott bring the scale of his previous epic Gladiator to this film while confronting hundreds of years of religious conflict. At times controversial in both its content and production difficulties, populated by an all-star cast and held together by a sterling central performance from Orlando Bloom, Kingdom Of Heaven is a multi-faceted classic of a humble man who chooses his fate, instead of accepting the fate given to him at birth.

Perhaps best known as the writer of Alain Resnais’ classic cine-conundrum Last Year of Marienbad, Alain Robbe-Grillet was also the director a number of stylish, controversial and erotic films which starred such icons of French cinema as Jean-Louis Trintignant (Haneke’s Amour, Bertolucci’s The Conformist), Marie-France Pisier (Truffaut’s Stolen Kisses and Bed and Board) and Isabelle Huppert (Claire Denis’ White Material, Haneke’s Amour). Impossible to see for decades, these enigmatic, sexually-charged films have now been collected together for the very first time, and are made available here in beautifully remastered High Definition presentations, with extra features including video introductions by Catherine Robbe-Grillet, filmed interviews with Alain Robbe-Grillet by Frederic Taddei, and newly-recorded, exclusive feature-length commentaries by cult cinema authority Tim Lucas.

Awards and Reviews: ‘Trans-Europ Express is as challenging and influential again today as it was in the 1960s – a key text of the post-war European avant-garde. But it is, above all, as an enjoyable and witty movie that this film has remained a classic.’ Senses of Cinema
Sturmtrupp in den Tod Sommer 1943: Am Zelengoramassiv in Südbosnien sind die dort operierenden, jugoslawischen Partisanenverbände von den Deutschen eingeschlossen und sehen ihrer Vernichtung entgegen. Einer der Partisanenführer, Slava, früher Universitätsprofessor in Nish, erhält mit seinen ehemaligen Studenten den Auftrag, die das Tal der Drava beherrschende Höhe des Lubingrob zu besetzen, um einen Ausbruchsversuch aus dem Kessel zu sichern. In einem tollkühnen Kommandounternehmen wird die Höhe genommen und ein Weg für den Ausbruch freigekämpft. Während die Hauptmacht der Partisanen mit ihren Verwundeten sich nach Norden durchschlägt, hält Slava mit seinen Leuten die Deutschen in blutigen Nahkämpfen auf. Nur wenige überleben die Schlacht in der Zelengora... Laufzeit: 78 Min. Produktionsjahr: Regie: Darsteller: Panzerschiff Graf Spee Dezember 1939. Das deutsche Panzerschiff Admiral Graf Spee nimmt Kurs auf sein Jagdgebiet im Südatlantik. Es ist schneller und schwerer bewaffnet als die gewaltigen Schlachtschiffe des Gegners. Unerbittlich kämpft Kapitän Hans Langsdorff. Wie ein trügerisches Irrlicht taucht das schnelle Schiff auf und verschwindet plötzlich spurlos, um dann wieder wie ein Wolf anzugreifen. Doch dann wird der Jäger zum Gejagten, und der Kampf wird im neutralen Hafen von Montevideo ausgetragen. Laufzeit: 112 Min. Produktionsjahr: 1956 Regie: Michael Powell Darsteller: Christopher Lee, Peter Finch, John Gregson; Briefe aus Stalingrad Stalingrad war die entscheidende Wende im zehnten Jahr des tausendjährigen Reiches. Nur wenige, der über dreihunderttausend, denen diese Stadt zum Schicksal wurde, konnten berichten, was das Inferno einer sinnlosen Schlacht nicht nur an materiellen Trümmern, sondern auch an psychischen hinterließ. Dieser Film will nicht klagen noch anklagen. Nein, er erzählt schlicht die Geschichte einiger, deren Gedanken und Erlebnisse in Briefen zum Ausdruck kamen, die ihre Empfänger nie erreichten. Aber er beleuchtet auch in ehrlicher Weise den Hintergrund einer oft verschwiegenen Vergangenheit. Hier ist das Spielgeschehen eingewoben in den authentischen und ungefärbten Rahmen des Auf- und Untergangs, dessen Akteure leibhaftig sind. Alles ist wahrheitsgetreu. Die Bilder, das Geschehen, die Worte, die gnadenlosen Kämpfe in und um einen Trümmerhaufen aus Stein, der zum größten Friedhof des zweiten Weltkrieges wurde... Laufzeit: 77 Min.

For over half a century, the brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani have been making some of the most beautiful and timeless films in all Italian cinema, and this collection showcases some of their greatest achievements. Padre Padrone catapulted them to international fame when it won both the Palme d’Or and the International Critics’ Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Set in rural Sardinia, it tells the true story of Gavino Ledda, who rose from shepherd boy to distinguished academic against all possible odds, especially those posed by his terrifyingly traditionalist father. With The Night of the Shooting Stars, the Tavianis dramatised the events of summer 1944 (when Germans and Americans used their native Tuscany as a battleground) through the eyes of an imaginative and mischievous six-year-old girl. And in Kaos, they adapted several Pirandello short stories into a magnificent three-hour panorama of nineteenth-century Sicilian life in all its comedy, tragedy, horror and unforgettable visual splendour. Arrow Academy is proud to present these three masterpieces in brand new director-approved 2K restorations. SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS: Limited Edition Collection [3,000 Copies] High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of all films from brand new director-approved 2K restorations, with Kaos also approved by its original cinematographer Giuseppe Lanci Original mono audio (uncompressed PCM on the Blu-rays) Optional newly-translated English subtitles for all films Brand new two-hour interview with Paolo & Vittorio Taviani Video essays on individual films by leading Italian film scholar Millicent Marcus Commentary on The Night of the Shooting Stars by critic Michael Brooke The Sublime Brothers: Michael Brooke looks at the Tavianis’ illustrious career, now into its seventh decade High Definition stills galleries for all three films Trailers for the new restorations Reversible sleeves featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Matt Griffin Exclusive 100-page book featuring Pauline Kael’s reviews of all three films and brand new (in some cases world premiere) translations of the Pirandello short stories that were adapted for Kaos.

Government spy Craig Gamble tracks down Robot 11, but even he isn't immune to her charms. Disc Two – Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs The devious Dr. Goldfoot (Price) is determined to conquer the world yet again, this time by deploying a legion of explosive robots that happen to look like gorgeous women. Fortunately for the citizens of the globe, suave secret agent Bill Dexter is out to foil Goldfoot's plans, which involve kidnapping a prominent American general (also Price) who bears a striking resemblance to Goldfoot. Also getting in on the antics is inept aspiring spy Franco.

The Crowded Day (1954) is an engaging, bittersweet comedy-drama focusing on the intertwined lives of a group of shop girls working in a London department store in the 1950s, with a wonderful cast including John Gregson, Joan Rice, Dora Bryan, Thora Hird, Prunella Scales, Sid James and Dandy Nicholls; Song of Paris (1952) is a charming romantic comedy which sees an archetypal Englishman - suavely played by Dennis Price - return from a jaunt abroad to face a dastardly foreign Count in a duel for the hand of a beautiful mademoiselle.
