River (Japan / 2023)

rive123.jpg


Produktionsland: Japan
Jahr: 2023
Regie: Junta Yamaguchi
Darsteller: Riko Fujitani, Manami Honjô, Gôta Ishida, Yoshimasa Kondô, Shiori Kubo, Masahiro Kuroki, Kohei Morooka



RIVER ist eine aberwitzige japanische Sci-Fi-Komödie von Junta Yamaguchi, der bereits die kultige Zeitreise-Comedy BEYOND THE INFINITE TWO MINUTES inszenierte – und diese mit einem genialen Script und einem grandiosen Schauspieler-Ensemble nochmal übertrumpft!

Im kleinen japanischen Örtchen Kibune scheint die Zeit stillzustehen: Buchstäblich! Die Hotelangestellte Mikoto staunt nicht schlecht, als sie sich plötzlich am kleinen Fluss hinter der alten Herberge wiederfindet. Immer und immer wieder! Mikoto, ihre Arbeitskollegen und die illustre Schar an Hotelgästen scheinen in einem Zeit-Loop gefangen, der sie sekundengenau nach zwei Minuten wieder an ihre “Ausgangspositionen” zurücksetzt. Während einige Hotelgäste schnell dabei sind, den Verstand zu verlieren, suchen andere nach einem Ausweg und merken bald, dass hier offenbar übersinnliche Geschehnisse die Zeit verrückt spielen lassen.

„Mit „River“ schafft es der japanische Regisseur also, das beinahe Unmögliche möglich zu machen und toppt seinen Erfolg von 2020 meiner Meinung nach nochmal deutlich“ Asianfilmweb

„unglaubliche Wärme und Charme“ uncut.at

„Aus dem japanischen Genrekino ist Junta Yamaguchi nun nicht mehr wegzudenken.“ Uncut.at

„Hinreißend, liebevoll und überraschend heilsam.“ Weird Weekender Festival

RIVER hatte seine Deutschlandpremiere auf dem Weird Weekender Festival.

Ab 4.4.2024 als VOD und limitiertes Mediabook mit exklusivem Artwork und Bonusmaterial erhältlich!

poin123.jpg


Jahr: 2023
Land: Südkorea
Darsteller: Hwang Jung-min, Hyun Bin, Kang Ki-young, Lee Seung-cheol, Jeong Jae-seong
Regie: Soon-rye Yim


Ein fesselnder Actionthriller, basierend auf einer der brisantesten Geiselkrisen Südkoreas! Die packende Geschichte um zwei gegensätzliche Agenten und ihren scheinbar unmöglichen Auftrag zieht den Zuschauer von Anfang bis Ende in ihren Bann. Dank der elektrisierenden Chemie zwischen den Protagonisten Hwang Jung-min (Narco-Saints) und Hyun Bin (Rampant) und der schwelenden Spannung hebt sich THE POINT MEN über die Grenzen eines typischen Geiseldramas weit hinaus. Ein aufregendes und emotional aufgeladenes Film-Erlebnis!

Afghanistan, 2006: Eine Gruppe koreanischer Missionare wird von den Taliban entführt, um inhaftierte Kämpfer freizupressen. Die koreanische Regierung entsendet Jae-ho, einen ihrer fähigsten Diplomaten, um die Freilassung der Geiseln zu verhandeln. Trotz all seiner Bemühungen scheitern die ersten Gespräche, weshalb Spezialagent Dae-sik einen alternativen Weg finden soll, die Situation so schnell es geht zu entschärfen. Während sich zunächst beide Männer gegenseitig im Weg stehen, wird als unmissverständliches Zeichen die erste Geisel umgebracht. In einem Wettlauf gegen die Zeit werden Jae-ho und Dae-sik zu unwahrscheinlichen Verbündeten und gehen immer drastischere Risiken ein, um Herr der Lage zu werden!

• „Fesselnder Actionthriller nach wahren Begebenheiten“ Moviebreak
• „Eine extrem gut umgesetzte, realistische Geschichte über eine der größten Geiselkrisen Südkoreas“ themoviedb.org
• Hervorragend besetzt mit den koreanischen Stars Hwang Jung-min (Narco-Saints) und Hyun Bin (Rampant)!
• „Die Actionsequenzen sind kinetisch und chaotisch, die dramatischen Stellen sind spannend“ MIB’s Instant Headache

Black Mask (Hongkong / 1996)

black123.jpg


Jahr: 1996
Lamd: Hongkong
Darsteller: Jet Li, Lau Ching-Wan, Karen Mok, Françoise Yip, Patrick Lung, Anthony Wong
Regie: Daniel Lee


SYNOPSIS:

Jet Li stars in an action-packed superhero spectacle produced by the legendary Tsui Hark!

Tsui Chik (Li) is a librarian who leads a quiet, unassuming life – or, at least, that’s what he wants people to believe. In truth, he was once a member of the 701 Squad, a group of elite combatants produced by a failed super-soldier project. In kind with his former comrades, his central nervous system has been altered to render him impervious to pain. When several of his fellow test subjects resurface and embark on a crimewave under the leadership of their former commander Hung Kuk (Patrick Lung), Tsui is forced to use his extraordinary abilities once more. Donning a costume, he sets out to face his past – as the vigilante known as the Black Mask.

Adapted from the manhua by Pang Chi-ming and Li Chi-tak and heavily influenced by Bruce Lee’s turn as Kato in The Green Hornet, Black Mask is one of the most entertaining movies in Jet Li’s filmography and boasts action orchestrated by Yuen Woo-ping, who would later win an Academy Award for his work on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

The Bounty Hunter Trilogy (Japan)

bounty123.jpeg




he Bounty Hunter Trilogy

Before he made his name in Lone Wolf and Cub Tomisaburo Wakayama starred in this triptych of violent samurai spectacles that draw on James Bond and Spaghetti Westerns for inspiration yet feature the familiar style and blood-spattering action of the period. Wakayama stars as Doctor and spy-for-hire Shikoro Ichibei who in Shigehiro (The Streetfighter) Ozawa's Killer's Mission is hired to prevent the sale of firearms to a hostile Shogun. In Eiichi (13 Assassins) Kudo's follow-up, The Fort of Death, Ichibei is hired on a Seven Samurai-style mission to protect a village of farmers from a ruthless Lord. The final film sees Ozawa return for Eight Men to Kill, in which Ichibei is hired to recover a cache of stolen gold from the government's mine. Featuring an array of weapons and gadgets that would make Q proud with Ichibei supported by a band of helpers including fellow spies, ronin and female ninjas, the Bounty Hunter films deliver action thrills galore and deserve to sit alongside the celebrated action epics that followed.

Black Tight Killers (Japan / 1966)

black1123.jpg


Herstellungsland: Japan:
Erscheinungsjahr: 1966
Regie: Yasuharu Hasebe
Darsteller: Akemi Kita, Mieko Nishio, Bokuzen Hidari, Akira Kobayashi, Chieko Matsubara


After wooing stewardess Yoriko (Chieko Matsubara, Tokyo Drifter), war photographer Hondo (Akira Kobayashi, Battles Without Honor and Humanity) sees her kidnapped by a team of deadly female assassins who use vinyl records as weapons. Investigating her whereabouts, Hondo uncovers a conspiracy to steal a buried stash of WWII-era gold. Soon he must dodge go-go dancing ninjas and chewing-gum bullets to save Yoriko, whose family secret is tied to the hidden treasure. Every bit as stylish and inventive as the wildest works by his mentor Seijun Suzuki, Yasuharu Hasebe’s spy spoof is a gaudy 1960s pop delight that ranks with the likes of Joseph Losey’s Modesty Blaise and Mario Bava’s Danger: Diabolik!

By A Man's Face Shall You Know Him (Japan / 1966)

byaman1234.jpg (107.34 KiB) 696 mal betrachtet


Jahr: 1966
Land: Japan
Regie: Tai Katô
Drehbuch: Seiji Hoshikawa, Tai Katô
Hauptbesetzung: Noboru Andô, Ichirô Nakatan, iSanae Nakahara
A community struggles against immigrant gangs in the ruins of postwar Tokyo. Only doctor Amamiya (real-life ex-yakuza Noboru Ando) can save them, but he had enough fighting in the war. His pacifism is severely tested by the gangs’ increasingly outrageous taunts and when his neighbours decide to take matters into their own hands, Amamiya is forced to take action. The consequences prove to be much more far-reaching than he could ever foresee. With a story spread across three time periods, Tai Kato’s ambitious revision of the yakuza movie was one of the first films to tackle the taboo subject of Japan’s Korean nationals, greatly influencing the work of later directors such as Kinji Fukasaku and Takashi Miike.

Suzhou River (China / 2000)

zuchou123.jpg


Jahr: 2000
Land: China
Regie: Ye Lou
Drehbuch: Ye Lou
Hauptbesetzung: Xun ZhouHongsheng JiaZhongkai Hua


A videographer narrates the story of Mardar, a small-time crook who delivers packages without asking questions, until he is tasked with delivering Moudan, the daughter of a shady smuggler. After a failed kidnapping attempt sees Moudan disappear and Mardar imprisoned, Mardar returns to the Suzhou River to look for Moudan. Instead, he discovers Meimei, a woman who looks identical to his long-lost love, and also happens to be the subject of our videographer narrator’s obsession. Set within the murky wastelands of Shanghai, Lou Ye’s award-winning re-tooling of Hitchcock’s Vertigo is a visual treat that features the kinetic style of Wong Kar-wai’s Chungking Express.

The Shape of Night (Japan / 1964)

night1234.jpg


Jahr: 1964
Land: Japan
Regie: Noboru Nakamura
Drehbuch: Toshidi Gondo, Kyoko Ohta
Hauptbesetzung: Miyuki Kuwano, Mikijirô Hira, Keisuke Sonoi
A young woman from the countryside (Miyuki Kuwano of Oshima’s Cruel Story of Youth) falls in love with a handsome hoodlum (Mikijiro Hira, Sword of the Beast), who pushes her into a life of prostitution. When his sleazy superiors catch sight of her, she finds herself trapped inside the gaudy maze of city nightlife. Directed by Noburo Nakamura, a veteran of the Shochiku studio’s signature Golden Age family dramas, The Shape of Night was made as a reaction to the radical film styles of the Japanese New Wave. With its lush cinematography full of saturated colours, a lyrical tone and its story of love leading to inescapable tragedy, it has been compared to the films of Douglas Sirk, while also acting as a precursor to the work of Wong Kar-wai.

LIMITED EDITION BLU-RAY SPECIAL FEATURES:

- High-Definition digital transfer
- Uncompressed mono PCM audio
- Visual essay on the artistic upheavals at Shochiku studios during the 1960s by Tom Mes

Shinobi (Japan / 1962 - 1963)

shin123.jpg


Teil 1 - 3:

- Shinobi: Band of Assassins (1962)
- Shinobi: Revenge (1963)
- Shinobi: Resurrection (1963)


It’s the 16th century and Japan is in chaos. Samurai clans engage each other in battle over who gets to rule the nation, while warlords call upon the ninja to spy on and assassinate their rivals. Goemon, an ambitious young member of a ninja family, is thrown into the turmoil of Japanese history when his village is wiped out by the forces of leading warlord Oda Nobunaga, who has sworn to eradicate the ninja in his quest for absolute power. Fueled by vengeance, Goemon uses every weapon in his arsenal to bring down Oda and to prove that a ninja is an army of one. Starring “the Japanese James Dean” Raizo Ichikawa (Sleepy Eyes of Death, Conflagration) alongside Tomisaburo Wakayama (Lone Wolf and Cub, the Bounty Hunter trilogy) and Ayako Wakao (Elegant Beast, Red Angel), the Shinobi series was an epoch-making success and became a social phenomenon that left deep marks on Japan of the 1960s, from children’s playgrounds to the leftist counter-culture. Packed with spectacular and oft-copied action scenes, it also established the ground rules for all ninja movies that followed, introducing such classic tropes as the shuriken throwing star and the iconic black mask and suit.

LIMITED EDITION BOX SET SPECIAL FEATURES:

- High-Definition digital transfer of each film presented on two discs, made available on Blu-ray (1080p) for the first time outside of Japan
- Uncompressed mono PCM audio

The Valiant Ones (Taiwan / 1975)

viol123.jpg
viol1234.jpg


Herstellungsland: Taiwan
Erscheinungsjahr: 1975
Regie: King Hu
Darsteller: Hsu Feng, Pai Ying, Simon Yuen Siu-Tin, Roy Chiao, Han Ying-Chieh, Sammo Hung



SYNOPSIS:

The Valiant Ones is perhaps the last true wuxia film directed by celebrated Taiwanese filmmaker King Hu, an undisputed master of the genre. Shot back-to-back with The Fate of Lee Khan (but not released until two years later), it stands as a worthy follow-up to his earlier works Come Drink with Me, Dragon Inn and A Touch of Zen.

During the reign of the Jiajing Emperor (Chao Lei), China’s coastal regions have come under attack by wokou – Japanese pirates under the leadership of the infamous Hakatatsu (Sammo Hung). To combat this threat, the Emperor tasks a trusted general, Zhu Wan (Tu Kuang-chi), with assembling a group of skilled warriors to find and eliminate the pirates. Under the command of General Yu Dayou (Roy Chiao), the band of soldiers – including husband-and-wife sword-fighters Wu Ji-yuan (Wing Bai) and Wu Ruo-shi (Feng Hsu) – set out to draw Hakatatsu, his ally Xu Dong (Han Ying-chieh) and their pirate clan into a series of spectacular showdowns.

Inspired by historical events and featuring several storied figures drawn from Chinese history, The Valiant Ones is a standout wuxia film produced during the dying days of the genre, as audience tastes were shifting towards more grounded kung fu cinema. The Masters of Cinema series is proud to present the film on Blu-ray from a 4K restoration.


SPECIAL FEATURES (BD)

- Limited edition O-Card slipcase featuring new artwork by Grégory Sacré (Gokaiju) [2000 copies]

Red Peony Gambler 1 – 3 (Japan / 1968-1969)

red12345.jpg


Jahr: 1968-1969
Land: Japan
Director: Kosaku Yamashita / Norifumi Suzuki / Tai Kato
Darsteller: Sumiko Fuji, Ken Takakura (1 and 3)


SYNOPSIS:

Originally released between 1968 and 1972, the Red Peony Gambler series is a cornerstone of the ninkyo eiga genre and a clear influence on such cult favourites such as Lady Snowblood and Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill. The Masters of Cinema series is proud to present the first three Red Peony Gambler films, starring Sumiko Fuji (13 Assassins) and directed by three titans of Japanese genre cinema in Kōsaku Yamashita, Norifumi Suzuki and Tai Katō.

Set during the Meiji era, Red Peony Gambler stars Fuji as Ryuko Yano, the daughter of a gambler. When her father is murdered, Ryuko takes on a new name derived from the crimson flower tattooed on her shoulder – “Oryu, the Red Peony” – and sets out for revenge. Then, in Red Peony Gambler 2: Gambler’s Obligation, Oryu falls in with a group of yakuza attempting to monopolise the silk trade. When machinations within the gang lead to a betrayal, the Red Peony takes action. Finally, in Red Peony Gambler 3: The Flower Cards Game, Oryu meets a pair of star-crossed lovers as she becomes embroiled in a conflict between rival yakuza clans.

Fuji would go on to play the Red Peony five more times, cementing the character as the archetype for many of the vengeful women to follow in Japanese cinema and beyond. These early entries in the Red Peony Gambler series are presented here for the first time ever on Blu-ray from brand new restorations of the original film elements by Toei.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

- Limited edition O-Card slipcase featuring new artwork by Grégory Sacré (Gokaiju) [2000 copies]
- 1080p HD presentation of all three films from restorations of the original film elements supplied by Toei
- Original Japanese audio tracks (uncompressed LPCM mono)

Seit 2016 hat Nikkatsu eine neue Welle dieser Pinku Produktionen begonnen. Namhafte Regisseure und Regisseurinnen erzählen erotische Geschichten, deren Spektrum von Komödien über Thriller bis zu avantgardistischer Filmkunst reicht. Die Nippon Erotika Box präsentiert zehn Highlights dieses filmischen Schaffens.

killer123.jpg


Herstellungsland: Thailand
Erscheinungsjahr: 2014
Regie: Panna Rittikrai
Darsteller: Nantawooti Boonrapsap, Dan Chupong, Ping Lumprapleng



Der Codex der Killer lautet: Brechen Sie die Mission niemals ab! Lassen Sie niemals das Ziel aus den Augen! Zeig keine Gnade! Nate (DAN CHUPONG aus "THE EXPENDABLES 4" und "BORN TO FIGHT") wurde zum eiskalten Profikiller - um herauszufinden, wer seine Eltern getötet hat. Während er der Aufdeckung eines geheimen Netzwerks aus Macht und Korruption immer näher kommt, wird er bei einem Job hintergangen, was ihn zum Ziel macht und alle, die er liebt, in Gefahr bringt. Verraten, entlarvt und gejagt von den tödlichsten Killern der Branche, hat Nate nun einen neuen Codex: Sei schneller! Stärker! Schlag härter! Überlebe!

Erstmals in deutscher Sprache! Ein furioses Action-Meisterwerk vom Regisseur der Kultfilme "ONG BAK 2" und "ONG BAK 3". Blitzschnelle Fights, waghalsige Stunts, blutige Schießereien und Explosionen! Brutal und spannend! Mit einem nervenzerfetzenden Finale in bester "JOHN WOO"-Manier! FULL UNCUT und 2K-HD-remastert!
