Tartan's Michael Haneke Trilogy in December - Features revealed

Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of The Michael Haneke Trilogy for 4th December 2006 priced at £39.99. With the box-office success of Hidden and production starting on his English-language remake of the classic Funny Games, Michael Haneke has established himself as a dramatic auteur on the world cinema stage. His three earliest films – referred to as ‘the emotional glaciation trilogy’ - are set to be released on UK DVD for the first time

The 7th Continent (1989) offers a chilling take on contemporary society as a successful young couple decide to kill themselves and their daughter. Benny’s Video (1992) darkly tells of a teenager’s obsession with violent movies leads to murder whilst 71 Fragments Of A Chronology of Chance (1994) recounts a hypnotic series of events which connect back to a motiveless murder.

This trio of disturbing dramas are a perfect primer to the work of Michael Haneke, paving the way for the English-language remake of Funny Games, produced by Tartan Films, which Haneke is currently directing himself. It stars Naomi Watts, Tim Roth and Brady Corbett (Mysterious Skin) and will be released in cinemas in 2007.

All three films are presented in anamorphic widescreen with Dolby 2.0 audio. Each DVD features an interview with Haneke talking about each specific film.
