Adapting R.F. Delderfield's classic story of love, lust, crime and betrayal, this mini-series centres around a young bank clerk whose yearning to escape the mundanity of small-town life in the 1930s is answered all too readily when he falls for an exotic beauty with dangerous intentions. First aired in 1990, Come Home Charlie and Face Them was the final project of North Wales-born actor and writer Alun Owen, a key figure in 1960s television drama whose credits include the Oscar-nominated screenplay for A Hard Day's Night and scripts for landmark anthology series Armchair Theatre. Charlie Pritchard is a bank cashier in a small Welsh seaside town; lodging with bank manager Evan Rhys-Jones, he forms a relationship with Ida, the banker's earthy, quietly determined daughter. Ida's simple appeal pales, however, beside the promise of passion embodied by the seductive Delphine – who with her brother, Beppo, runs the lively Rainbow Café. Charlie and Delphine are irresistibly drawn together... but each for entirely different reasons.
Bresson achieves the pinnacle of his art in the tale of a gentle creature’s journey through a cruel world. A profound masterpiece from one of the most revered filmmakers in the history of cinema, Au hasard Balthazar, directed by Robert Bresson (Pickpocket), follows the donkey Balthazar as he is passed from owner to owner, some kind and some cruel but all with motivations outside of his understanding. Balthazar, whose life parallels that of his first keeper, Marie, is truly a beast of burden, suffering the sins of humankind. But despite his powerlessness, he accepts his fate nobly. Through Bresson’s unconventional approach to composition, sound, and narrative, this simple story becomes a moving parable about purity and transcendence. Special Edition Features: New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Interview from 2005 with film scholar Donald Richie “Un metteur en ordre: Robert Bresson,” a 1966 French television programme about the film, featuring Bresson, filmmakers Jean‐Luc Godard and Louis Malle, and members of Balthazar’s cast and crew Original theatrical trailer Plus: An essay by film scholar James Quandt
Hailing more from the pulp-melancholic spirit of the 1978-1982 Hulk television series than its 2003 predecessor did, The Incredible Hulk wordlessly tells the entire gamma ray-afflicted origin story of scientist Bruce Banner's alter-ego within its first two-and-a-half minutes. This credit sequence evokes--albeit with more cinematic weight--the premise-informing quality that might be found before every episode of a cult hit series. This sequence makes at least two things clear. First off, the Edward Norton-starring The Incredible Hulk is not a sequel to or a remake of the 2003 The Hulk, but a reboot complete with an alternate plot, a new dynamic, and a different set of rules. Second, director Louis Leterrier (Unleashed, The Transporter) intends to deliver an economically paced, tightly wound thriller in which drama and action scenes are not mutually exclusive.The Incredible Hulk replaces cerebral family drama with a coping scientist who, at the start of the movie, is in hiding and training his mind-body dichotomy. So much of Banner's plight is effectively conveyed with simple 'days without incident': title cards that inevitably reset. The Hulk's previously poetic weightlessness is rejected in favour of gargantuan physicality akin to seeing huge robots face off in Transformers, but with more flesh, muscle, and bone. The angst, of course, isn't gone from this incarnation--not if Norton's intelligently passionate Banner and his tender, forbidden relationship with Dr. Elizabeth Ross (Liv Tyler) have anything to say about it--it's simply that this Hulk always smashes before he ponders. Rounding out The Incredible Hulk's main players are William Hurt as General Ross and Tim Roth as marine Emil Blonsky, two antagonists in pursuit of the Hulk who, like Banner, are not so much evil as consumed by tragic character flaws.
