• Maria Klonaris & Katerina Thomadaki – Double Labyrinthe (1976)

    Quote:
    “A quest for identity through a series of disguises that do not involve costumes but gestures, materials and objects. The theorem of cross-dressing: by superimposing a different behavior, one that is socially defined, in the middle of everyday life, subjects search for the most intimate layers of their identity. In this sense, their relationships with materials, gestures and objects function as instances of exploratory “acting out”.Read More »

    Synopsis
    Two rival police inspectors, Boucheron and Baumer, investigate the murder of the owner of a well-to-do apartment block.

No sooner have these two suspects been arrested than a young bank clerk, André, confesses – not to the murder but to defrauding his employer. Could the murderer be the sinister Eric, who is revealing his nasty character during a game of cards? Could it be the unscrupulous Alfredo, a classy crook who abuses women? Or could it be the son of the respectable Président Bernier, eager to repay his father for having a mistress? As they delve deeper into the private lives of the dead woman’s tenants, Boucheron and Baumer make more than a few surprising discoveries. But will they solve the crime..?Read More »

  • Takeshi Kitano – Ano natsu, ichiban shizukana umi AKA A Scene at the Sea (1991)

    Quote:
    Third Window Films continues their collection of Takeshi Kitano Blu-rays with a revisit of his 1991 film, A Scene at the Sea. At the time Kitano was still seen largely as a comeic performer and his first two films started to change that perception and give him a small taste of international recognition. However, it is with A Scene at the Sea, his third feature as a director, that Kitano really showed the film world his skill set. Not only was it his first film as a director that didn’t feature him in an acting role, it also distanced itself from the previous two yakuza driven features and proved that Kitano is a force ot be reckoned with and a truew artist, rather than a hired gun.Read More »
