Os lançamentos em Blu-ray da Criterion para janeiro

Janeiro é um mês repleto de raridades dos anos 1930 e 1940 nos lançamentos da Criterion Collection.

Mas comecemos por um clássico que não é raridade. O Clube dos Cinco já saiu por aqui em DVD e em uma edição especial de 30 anos em Blu-Ray, com vários extras, pela Universal. Mas Criterion é Criterion e esta versão do clássico de John Hughes conta com uma remasterização em 4K e mais de 50 minutos de cenas inéditas, entre outros extras bem bacanas.

A Mocidade de Lincoln , de 1939, concorreu ao Oscar de melhor roteiro, foi dirigido pelo grande John Ford e contou com Henry Fonda como o presidente norte-americano. Saiu aqui em DVD pela obscura Silver Screen.

O recente Eu, Daniel Blake (2016), de Ken Loach, ganhou mais de 20 prêmios mundo afora e chega recheado de extras pela Criterion. Por aqui saiu apenas em um DVD pelado pela Imovision.

Guerra! Flagelo de Deus (tradução perfeita para Westfront 1918) é um filme alemão de 1930 passado na Primeira Guerra Mundial, bem raro e que está sendo apresentado numa incrível versão restaurada. Foi dirigido por G. W. Pabst e saiu aqui em DVD pela famigerada Magnus Opus. Também do mesmo diretor, A Tragédia da Mina (1931) é um aclamado filme-catástrofe baseado em fatos reais sobre uma explosão que soterrou mineradores franceses. Também saiu aqui pela Magnus Opus.

Para terminar, o diretor francês Claude Autant-Lara tem um box com quatro raros romances feitos durante a ocupação nazista na França: Casamento de Chiffon, Paixão de uma Noite, Silvia e o Fantasma e Lettres d’amour, . Curiosamente este lançamento só estará disponível em DVD. E também curiosamente aparentemente o box não contará com nenhum extra. Por aqui nem cheiro de nenhum dos quatro filmes.

Eclipse Series 45: Four Romantic Escapes from Occupied France, de Claude Autant-Lara (França, de 1942 a 1946)

4-DVD BOX SET INCLUDES:

LE MARIAGE DE CHIFFON (1942)
This delightful comedy brought Claude Autant-Lara his first popular success as a director. Chiffon (Odette Joyeux) is being pushed by her mother to wed a dashing military officer (André Luguet) but finds herself drawn to her stepfather’s penniless brother (Jacques Dumesnil). For LE MARIAGE DE CHIFFON, Autant-Lara convened the creative team including screenwriter Jean Aurenche, cinematographer Philippe Agostini, and the incomparable Joyeux that would reunite for each of his subsequent three features, initiating a remarkable run of sharp love stories.

LETTRES D AMOUR (1942)
A deceptive lightness distinguishes this farcical second feature made by Claude Autant-Lara while Germany occupied France. During the reign of Napoleon III, a plucky postmistress (Odette Joyeux) agrees to receive love letters to a prefect’s wife from a young official, and soon finds herself embroiled in a scandal that inflames a town’s class tensions. A transporting period piece with ornate costumes by Christian Dior, LETTRES D AMOUR paints a blithely pointed portrait of life in a highly stratified society.

DOUCE (1943)
As belle epoque Paris prepares for Christmas, the residence of Countess de Bonafé hosts more than its share of intrigue: the countess’s headstrong granddaughter, DOUCE (Odette Joyeux), pines for the estate manager, whose heart has been broken by the governess, who is being courted by DOUCE’s widower father. Elegantly shot, DOUCE is a dizzying romantic roundelay that contains a biting critique of France’s rigid social order. This film, which ultimately takes a tragic turn, found Claude Autant-Lara in full command of his craft.

SYLVIE ET LE FANTÔME (1946)
With this film, conceived during the occupation and released after the war, Claude Autant-Lara entered the realm of pure fantasy. Odette Joyeux stars as Sylvie, in love with a figure from the lore of her family’s castle. Sylvie’s father hires three actors to impersonate the ghost of her beloved, while the spirit himself (Jacques Tati, in his first feature-film role) stalks the grounds. Marrying a playful script, artful special effects, and wistful performances, SYLVIE ET LE FANTÔME stages a delicate dance of enchantment.
