Roman Polanski’s – VENUS IN FUR – available on dvd and Blu Ray.

VENUS IN FURVENUS IN FUR (15) 2013 FRANCE POLANSKI, ROMAN DVD – £15.99 BLU-RAY – £19.99

Having trouble casting his theatrical production of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s novel ‘Venus in Furs’, Thomas (Mathieu Amalric) is at the end of his tether trying to find a female lead. As he is about to leave the theatre after another long day of unsuccessful auditions, a dishevelled and weather-beaten woman, Vanda (Emmanuelle Seigner), arrives and demands that Thomas let her read for the part.
Initially, Thomas is reluctant to do so, but Vanda succeeds in changing his mind. As the audition begins and Thomas assumes the role of the submissive male in the play, it quickly becomes apparent that Vanda is perfect for the part and the line between real life and art becomes blurred.

VOUS N’AVEZ ENCORE RIEN VU/YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET out on dvd January 2013

YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN' YET    VOUS N’AVEZ ENCORE RIEN VU/YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET  (PG) 2012 FRANCE   RESNAIS, ALAIN     £15.99
Theatre, memory and the past combine as a group of actors reunite on the wishes of their former director. Informed by telephone that noted theatre director Antoine d’Anthac (Denis Denis Podalydès) has died, a group of actors are requested to attend his home to view a videotaped performance of the play ‘Eurydice’, by a young theatre troupe called La Compagnie de la Colombe. All of the actors gathered together, including Mathieu Almaric, Sabine Azéma, Jean-Noël Brouté, Anne Consigny, Pierre Arditi and Anny Duperey (all playing themselves), have performed the play in the past, and as they watch, they find themselves inadvertantly acting out their former roles, becoming part of the play as the boundaries between fantasy and reality begin to blur.
