The Man Without A Past & In This World (R2) in September
ICA Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of two films on 21st September 2009. Priced at £12.99 RRP each, both are titles previously released by Optimum which have now moved to ICA...
The Man Without A Past - The second installment of Aki Kaurismaki's (Drifting Clouds, Lights In The Dark) "Finland Trilogy", The Man Without A Past is a touching and amusing film that portrays a man who must start his life anew when he is brutally mugged and loses his memory.
A barebones disc (aside from trailers and biographies), the film is presented in anamorphic widescreen with Stereo sound and forced English subtitles.
In This World - Michael Winterbottom's epic docu-drama takes a pointedly different look at the immigration issue. In This World follows a journey that is illegal, fraught with danger and full of back-channel bribes, human smuggling and examples of the lengths people will go to in an effort to reach freedom.
Extras include the film's trailer, a behind-the-scenes with Michael Winterbottom and Tony Grisoni documentary (31mins), filmographies on the aforementioned gentlemen and a stills gallery. The film is presented in anamorphic widescreen with Stereo sound and forced English subtitles.
