Product Description

Product Description

Unanimous winner of all three main prizes at the 1973 Locarno International Film Festival, Zanussi's landmark film is a dazzling kaleidoscope of ideas and images. Illumination explores the life of a self-absorbed young physicist trying to understand his place in the universe. He thinks science will provide the answers, but ultimately learns far more about himself through experiencing love, betrayal, loss, and facing his own mortality.

As much a philosophical essay as a narrative feature Illumination is a cinematic mosaic combining art and science, intellect and emotion. Innovatively structured, this unflinching examination of one man's life became an iconic cultural marker for a whole generation.

The DVD is presented in a superb new director-approved HD transfer with restored picture and sound and features Marcin Latallo's acclaimed 1996 short film A Trace ( lad) about his father, the lead actor in Illumination, Stanislaw Latallo.

New HD restoration with restored picture and sound; 16.9 anamorphic widescreen; New and improved English subtitles.

Format: DVD
One of the best films in the vast film biography of one of the last of today living true artists, who easily stands on the same level of art as Tarkovski, Wajda, Kieslowski, Wenders, Antonioni... An intelectual cinema of the highest rank, asking philosophical, existential questions about life and its meaning, love, death, belief. Great cinema!

Format: DVD
An interesting film looking back to a period of time when life was more structured and possibly controlled. A film if you are interested in life in the time of the Soviet influence over Eastern Europe!
