Rouge (Remastered DTS) in September
IVL have announced the Hong Kong Region 3 DVD release of Rouge for 16th September 2004 priced at HK$118. Rouge stars Leslie Cheung (Farewell My Concubine) as Chan, the never-do-well son of a wealthy and powerful family, who defiantly falls head over heels in love with prostitute Fleur (Anita Mui) in the 1930’s. Disowned and despised, the hopeless couple makes a suicide pact – but Chan finds himself unable to carry through with it.
Fleur’s pining spirit returns to the thriving Hong Kong 50 years later and finds Chan a withered has-been old-timer, suffering the humiliation of a parasitic and destitute existence. With time running out, Fleur faces her last chance to test Chan’s devotion.
Passionate, moving, and exquisitely executed, Rouge is a must for all those who live for cinematic excellence.
Fully re-mastered with enhanced video quality and Dolby 5.1 and DTS surround sound the film is presented in anamorphic widescreen with Cantonese and Mandarin remixes, and the original Cantonese soundtrack. Subtitles are present in English and Traditional and Simplified Chinese.
Dedicated to the sadly departed stars, Leslie Cheung and Anita Mui, the set includes “Rouge” Memorial Bookmarks and Booklets. Extras on the disc are limited to an interview with director Stanley Kwan.
