Elem Klimov's Come and See in April
Nouveaux Pictures have announced the UK DVD release of Come and See for 24th April 2006 priced at £19.99. After eight years of building up a prestigious DVD catalogue containing some of the finest examples of World Cinema ever produced – including such titles as La Dolce Vita, Hiroshima Mon Amour and The Tin Drum – Nouveaux Pictures is proud to announce the first ever UK DVD release of its biggest title to date, Elem Klimov's award-winning World War II epic, COME AND SEE.
The winner of both the FIPRESCI Prize and the Golden Prize at the 1985 Moscow International Film Festival, and hailed by Empire Of The Sun author J. G. Ballard as "the greatest war film ever made" and by Academy Award winning actor Sean Penn as "a masterpiece not only of filmmaking but of humanity itself," the film's unavailability on DVD in the UK has given COME AND SEE the status of "lost masterpiece". Now, this spellbinding film is being released as a double-disc DVD, digitally remastered from a restored print and featuring a host of Special Features including brand new interviews with director Elem Klimov, lead actor Alexei Kravchenko and production designer Victor Petrov.
Feature presentation in dual language format (Russian 5.1 with English subtitles and English 5.1 dubbed version).
Preface by director Elem Klimov; interviews with star Alexei Kravchenko and production designer Victor Petrov; Chronicles 1 and 2 featuring archive newsreel footage; filmographies; photo album.
