Competition: Win La Ronde on Blu-Ray


La Ronde is out on DVD & Blu-ray on 27th of May

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 copies on Blu-ray to give away.

Synopsis
Praised by directors, critics and cinephiles alike, master of cinema Max Ophuls’ masterpiece La Ronde (1950) is set for a newly restored release in high-definition.

Winning the BAFTA Best Film award and earning double Oscar®nominations La Ronde’s scene-setting opening has been described as ‘one of the marvels of cinema’ (The Observer) and has garnered huge acclaim across the globe.

The film is one of the most lauded adaptations of Arthur Schnitzler's (Eyes Wide Shut) renowned play and stars some of France’s most respected actors including Anton Walbrook (The Red Shoes, The Life and Death of Colonal Blimp); Simone Signoret (Les Diaboliques, Room at the Top); Serge Reggiani (The Leopard, The Lovers of Verona; Simone Simon (Cat People, La Bete Humane)and Daniel Gélin (The Man Who Knew too Much, Napoleon).

Now this magnum opus is set to arrive as a stunningly remastered version, from the original negative.

Set in 1900s Vienna, La Ronde presents an amazing series of interconnected romantic entanglements, a merry-go-round of life and love.

Anton Walbrook guides us through the chain of amorous encounters as the enigmatic, omnipotent master of ceremonies. One fleeting moment links to the next, partners change, and the dance goes on, turning with the elegance of a Viennese waltz, until the story is brought full circle in the final vignette.

With its breath-taking use of long takes and beautiful fluid camera moves Max Ophuls (Letter from an Unknown Woman, Lola Montes) directs with stunning style and élan to create an astounding cinematic masterwork.
