Film Fanaddict News : Kino Lorber to Release Alain Robbe-Grillet's L'IMMORTELLE in new HD transfer on Blu-ray and DVD

Open in new windowKino Lorber and Redemption are proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Alain Robbe-Grillet's L'IMMORTELLE (1963), starring François Brion and Jacques Doniol-Valcroze. The film marks Robbe-Grillet's directorial debut, following the acclaim he received for his Academy Award®-nominated screenplay for Alain Resnais' Last Year at Marienbad the previous year. L'IMMORTELLE won the Prix Louis Delluc and was nominated for the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival when it was released in 1963.

This is the third release in The Cinema of Alain Robbe-Grillet, a collection from Kino Lorber and Redemption that will consist of six films by the acclaimed French writer and filmmaker, restored and remastered in HD from original 35mm elements.

L'IMMORTELLE will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on April 1st, with a SRP of $34.95 for the Blu-ray and $29.95 for the DVD. It is presented in the original French language soundtrack with optional English subtitles. Special features include an interview with Alain Robbe-Grillet (32 min.), three trailers for the films of Alain Robbe-Grillet, and a 2014 promotional short for The Cinema of Alain Robbe-Grillet Collection.

With his talent for intricate, experimental narratives, and his penchant for sado-masochism as a recurring theme in his work, Robbe-Grillet used film to explore his own sexual desires, resulting in a highly personal and sometimes disturbing body of work that is equally characteristic of European art cinema and the exploitation cinema of the 1960s.

For years, Robbe-Grillet's films have been unavailable in the United States in any form. It is with great pride that Kino Lorber and Redemption Films bring these films to American viewers, in exquisite HD editions, aiding in the rediscovery of one of European cinema's most eclectic and highly original filmmakers.

With its highly stylized camerawork and fragmented narrative structure, Alain Robbe-Grillet's L'IMMORTELLE is a cinematic arabesque that teases the eye with visual delights, yet sadistically confounds the viewer's expectations. Not dissimilar to Alain Resnais's Last Year at Marienbad, which he had written two years earlier, L'IMMORTELLE involves a Frenchman, traveling in Istanbul, who is fascinated by the city's language, architecture, and exotic culture. He soon becomes entranced by a mysterious woman (Françoise Brion) who seems to encourage his attentions but remains, maddeningly, just beyond his reach. His erotic pursuit of her leads him into the criminal underworld...with deadly consequences.
