Tattooed Life (1965)

tat123.jpg


Herstellungsland: Japan
Erscheinungsjahr: 1965
Darsteller: Hideki Takahashi, Akira Yamauchi, Hiroko Ito, Masako Izumi, Kayo Matsuo
Regie: Seijun Suzuki


Tetsuo (Hideki Takahashi, Fighting Elegy), a low-level yakuza is double-crossed by his boss and attacked. His younger brother Kenji (Kotobuki Hananomoto, This Transient Life), an aspiring artist with no connections to crime, comes to his aid and kills Tetsuo's assailant. Fearing repercussions from the yakuza they flee to Manchuria where they risk coming under suspicion of rival gangs. Seijun Suzuki (Branded to Kill) remains loyal to the conventions of the yakuza film, but Tattooed Life contains flashes of his later creative genius, including a final act of explosive visual excess that has become one of the director’s all-time classic scenes.

Shawscope Vol. 3 Limited Edition

shaw123.jpg

Before Hong Kong's mightiest film studio mastered the art of the kung fu film, Shaw Brothers hit box office gold with a very different kind of martial arts cinema, one that channelled the blood-soaked widescreen violence of Japanese samurai epics and Italian spaghetti westerns into a uniquely Chinese form: the wuxia pian. With their enthralling tales drawn from historical myth and legend of sword-wielding (and often gravity-defying) noble heroes, the wuxia films housed in this next instalment of Arrow Video's best-selling Shawscope series demonstrate the sweeping stylistic evolution of the genre, from the righteous stoicism of the late-60s Mandarin period, right through to the wild-and-weird anarchism of the early-80s Cantonese explosion.

The iconic One-Armed Swordsman trilogy, directed between 1967 and 1971 by wuxia cinema godfather Chang Cheh, made household names of stars ""Jimmy"" Wang Yu and David Chiang and set the gory template for many of the films to come. Contrary to Chang's tales of loyal brotherhood, many wuxia films focused on female protagonists, three very different examples of which we see next: Ho Meng-hua's Lady Hermit, with the great Cheng Pei-pei (Come Drink with Me) as a virtuous swordswoman called upon to stop a vicious warlord; Chor Yuen's scandalous Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan in which the titular lady of the night masters every deadly skill she can to get revenge on those who enslaved her; and Cheng Kang's all-star epic The 14 Amazons, in which Shaws' finest starlets play the real-life women of the Yang dynasty, avenging their fallen menfolk in battle. Next, Chor Yuen adapted several beloved novels by consummate wuxia storyteller Gu Long to the big screen, four of which are collected here: The Magic Blade, Clans of Intrigue, Jade Tiger and The Sentimental Swordsman, all starring the redoubtable Ti Lung. As kung fu overtook wuxia at the box office, the genre evolved into unexpected new directions, with its chivalrous knights-errant replaced by conflicted antiheroes, as seen in Sun Chung's breathlessly exciting The Avenging Eagle and Boxer's Omen goremeister Kuei Chih-hung's fatalistic masterpiece Killer Constable. Finally, just when it seemed the wuxia film had nowhere left to turn, Eighties excess reigned supreme in the special-effects-soaked, fourth-wall-breaking fantastical delights of Taylor Wong's Buddha's Palm and Lu Chun-ku's Bastard Swordsman.

Back with all-new exclusive restorations and hours of insightful bonus material, if you thought the previous two Shawscope sets showed the Shaw Brothers studio at its strongest, you ain't seen nothing yet!

Product Features:

- HD (1080p) Blu-ray presentations of all fourteen films, including thirteen new 2K restorations by Arrow Films from the original negatives, and a new 4K restoration of One-Armed Swordsman by Celestial Pictures

- Hours of illuminating bonus features, including feature commentaries on each film, several cast-and-crew interviews from the Frédéric Ambroisine Video Archive, and the rare alternate Korean cut of Killer Constable
- Exclusive CD of music from the De Wolfe Music Library, as heard in The Avenging Eagle and other Shaw Brothers classics

The Street Fighter Trilogy (Japan / 1974)

street123.jpg


- THE STREET FIGHTER (1974)
- RETURN OF THE STREET FIGHTER (1974)
- THE STREET FIGHTER'S LAST REVENGE (1974)


Sonny Chiba stars as Takuma "Terry" Tsurugi, the animalistic antihero driven by sex, money and brawling in the infamous series that first introduced the name of the martial arts legend to a global audience.

The first film to receive an X rating in the U.S. purely on account of its violence, The Street Fighter sees Tsurugi embroiled in a game of double and triple crosses involving both local and foreign mafia gangs when he is hired to kidnap Sarai (Yutaka Nakajima, The Executioner 1 & 2 ), the beautiful heiress daughter of a recently deceased oil tycoon. In Return of the Street Fighter, Tsurugi uncovers an extortion racket behind the construction of a new karate dojo and a shadowy cabal whose reach stretches across the whole of Asia. In The Street Fighter's Last Revenge, Chiba is joined by Toei star Reiko Ike (Girl Boss Guerrilla, Sex and Fury) as Tsurugi goes hand-to-hand against an ambitious public prosecutor (Koji Wada) with his own fists of fury over evidence of a corporate coverup involving a chemical spillage.

The Street Fighter films made Chiba a star, so beloved by Quentin Tarantino he had the young lovers of True Romance meet-cute at a Sonny Chiba triple feature and would later cast Chiba himself in Kill Bill. Making its UK Blu-ray debut, Arrow Video is proud to present The Street Fighter Trilogy in all its eye-popping, skullcrushing, throat-ripping glory!

Herstellungsland: Japan
Erscheinungsjahr: 2023
Darsteller: Sakura Andô, Eita Nagayama, Soya Kurokawa, Hinata Hiiragi, Mitsuki Takahata
Regie: Hirokazu Koreeda


INHALT:
Saori Mugino ist eine junge Witwe und Mutter. Ihre ganze Liebe gehört ihrem Sohn Minato. Als sich der Junge mehr und mehr zurückzieht, spürt sie, dass etwas nicht stimmen kann. Mit Entsetzen erfährt Saori, dass Minatos Lehrer an seinem merkwürdigen Verhalten schuld sein soll. Aufgebracht stürmt sie in die Schule, verlangt Antworten. Doch man lässt sie im Unklaren. Saori aber lässt nicht locker und geht der Sache auf den Grund. Bis nach und nach offenbar wird, was wirklich geschah. Wahrlich meisterhaft erzählt der preisgekrönte japanische Regisseur Hirokazu Kore-eda (SHOPLIFTERS, BROKER) eine berührende Geschichte über verbotene Gefühle und alltägliche Vorurteile. Die kunstvolle Struktur von DIE UNSCHULD ist eine Reminiszenz an RASHOMON von Akira Kurosawa. Völlig zurecht erhielt das neue Bravourstück von Kore-eda beim Festival in Cannes den Preis für das beste Drehbuch (Yuji Sakamoto). Die einfühlsame Musik stammt vom unvergessenen Oscar®-Gewinner Ryuichi Sakamoto (DER LETZTE KAISER).

The Threat (Japan / 1966)


threat123.jpg


Herstellungsland: Japan
Erscheinungsjahr: 1966
Darsteller: Rentarô Mikuni, Kô Nishimura, Masumi Harukawa
Regie: Kinji Fukasaku


The Threat is a gritty crime drama in the vein of Kurosawa’s High and Low, set against the backdrop of a rapidly modernising Japan that has left many of its citizens behind.

Misawa (Rentarō Mikuni, Fugitive from the Past, Vengeance is Mine) appears to lead a charmed life, the very model of Japan’s post-war economic miracle. His position as the account manager of a prestigious advertising agency is enough to pay the mortgage on the spacious modern house he shares with his wife (Masumi Harukawa, Intentions of Murder) and their two young boys, kitted out with all the latest mod-cons. Then one day, the fragility of his existence is revealed when two violent jail-breakers turn up on his doorstep seeking refuge and threatening to embroil Misawa in their criminal activities.

Arrow Video presents this little-seen early masterpiece from Kinji Fukasaku, the future director of Battles Without Honour and Humanity and Battle Royale, for the very first time outside of its own country in a stunning new transfer.

LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS

- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation

Dogra Magra (Japan / 1988)

dogra123.jpg


Herstellungsland: Japan
Erscheinungsjahr: 1988
Darsteller: Yôji Matsuda, Shijaku Katsura, Hideo Murota
Regie: Toshio Matsumoto


A man wakes in an asylum with no memory. Dr Wakabayashi helps him to recall his past in which he killed his bride on their wedding day. Part of his memory becomes linked to another doctor, Dr Masaki, and a manuscript, Dogra Magra. As the two doctors treat him, reality and fantasy become blurred and the patient becomes unsure of his identity or his doctors’ experiments. The final feature film by Toshio Matsumoto (Funeral Parade of Roses) is an adaptation of the celebrated novel by Kyusaku Yumeno, a period set gothic tale with a sense of dreamy dread that recalls Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Cure and the locked room mystery of Shutter Island. A stunningly shot phantasmagoria by Tatsuo Suzuki (Pastoral: To Die in the Country), Dogra Magra is presented on Blu-ray for the first time outside of Japan.

Daiei Gothic - Japanese Ghost Stories (LE)

A collection of three of Japan's most famous ghost stories that have haunted people for centuries. Kenji Misumi (Lone Wolf and Cub) directs The Ghost of Yotsuya, in which a woman returns from the grave as a horribly disfigured phantom to torment her husband and his new bride. In The Snow Woman, directed by Tokuzo Tanaka (Zatoichi), a woodcutter must keep his oath to a vengeful female spirit or pay the ultimate price. The Bride from Hades by Satsuo Yamamoto (Shinobi) sees a handsome samurai so enchanted by a courtesan's beauty that he fails to realise she is a ghost. These three film versions from the Daiei studio form a pinnacle of atmospheric Japanese horror. Their elegant visuals and ominous shadows rival the best of Terence Fisher or Mario Bava, while their iconic female ghosts would greatly influence Asian genre cinema, from Hong Kong fantasy spectacles such as A Chinese Ghost Story to J-horror.

Broken Oath (Hongkong / 1977)

broke123.jpg


Herstellungsland: Hongkong
Erscheinungsjahr: 1977
Darsteller: Angela Mao, Michael Chan Wai-Man, Bruce Leung Siu-Lung, Kuo Cheng-Yu, Kwan Shan
Regie: Chung Chang-wha


SYNOPSIS:

A Hong Kong take on Japan’s Lady Snowblood, Broken Oath is an action-packed tale of righteous vengeance directed by Jeong Chang-hwa (King Boxer) and starring the first lady of kung fu cinema: the inimitable Angela Mao!

Orphaned and angry, Lotus (Mao) is raised by Buddhist nuns before she is exiled for her violent ways – and skipping classes to improve her martial arts skills. Finding herself alone in the world, she quickly comes to discover the truth of her past: that her father was once a respected member of the Imperial Court who was murdered in cold blood, and that her mother gave birth to her in a jail cell after being unjustly imprisoned for killing one of the culprits. With revenge on her mind and a newfound accomplice in tow (Bruce Leung, Magnificent Bodyguards), she sets out to track down the men responsible for tearing her family apart – armed with both her considerable martial arts prowess and a nest of scorpions with which to poison her enemies.

Made at the height of her fame following roles in Hapkido, Lady Whirlwind, Enter the Dragon and When Taekwondo Strikes, Broken Oath is one of Angela Mao’s very best films – and boasts action choreography orchestrated by Hsia Hsu (Drunken Master) and Yuen Woo-ping, one of the most respected stunt coordinators in both Hong Kong (The Magnificent Butcher) and Hollywood (The Matrix). Eureka Classics is proud to present the film on Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the world from a brand new 2K restoration.

Ein fesselndes Ringen um Macht innerhalb von politischen Intrigen, Kolonialeinflüssen und uralter Tradition im China der 1920er Jahre und mittendrin der intensive persönliche Disput von zwei Männern, die Meister ihrer tödlichen Kunst sind. Umwerfend eingefangenes historisches Drama und gleichzeitig ein actionreicher Martial-Arts-Film, in welchem jede Bewegung, jeder Kampf und jedes Duell in einem atemberaubenden Tempo und Rhythmus eine mitreißende Geschichte erzählen. Mit zwei Größen des modernen Hong Kong-Kinos, Jacky Heung und Andy On, in den Hauptrollen.

Der alte Meister der Kampfkunstakademie in Tianjin verstirbt. Statt dem rechtmäßigen Nachfolger, seinem Sohn Shen An, wird sein bester Schüler, Qi Quan, zum neuen Leiter der Akademie bestimmt. Während dieser eine Reformation der Kampfkunstschule anstrebt, arbeitet Shen An in der örtlichen Bank. Die Rivalität der beiden Männer führt schon bald zu kämpferischen Auseinandersetzungen, welche die Akademie strikt missbilligt. Diese jahrelange Fehde zwischen den zwei meisterhaften Kampfkünstlern steuert auf einen unausweichlichen und katastrophalen Konflikt zu…
