Eureka Entertainment has used Twitter to announce the March and April 2013 releases in its Masters of Cinema series.
From French New Wave and Italian art cinema classics, to lesser known gems from France and Japan, the six-release slate includes big name directors Claude Chabrol, Michelangelo Antonioni, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Yūzō Kawashima, and Sadao Yamanaka.
“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],” said Andrew Utterson, producer of the Masters of Cinema Series. “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 Yūzō Kawashima’s utterly thrilling but long-unavailable-in-the-west Bakumatsu taiyō-den [A Sun-Tribe Myth from the Bakumatsu Era] and the collected release of fellow Japanese filmmaker Sadao Yamanaka’s entire surviving works.”
Full details of each of the titles announced can be found on the Eureka / Masters of Cinema website.
