Product description

Product Description

SYNOPSIS: Of Make Way for Tomorrow, Orson Welles told Peter Bogdanovich: Oh my God that s the saddest movie ever made. Leo McCarey s personal favourite among all his films (which included The Awful Truth and An Affair to Remember) is sad, yes, but it also stands as cathartic affirmation of the dignity of human feeling, and in the testament of such achieves a subtle complexity of characterisation on par with Renoir, Ford, and Hawks. Victor Moore and Beulah Bondi, two of the great Hollywood character actors, portray the couple whose house the bank has foreclosed upon, and who are forced subsequently to move into their children s homes in the city. A near-musical restructuring of gratitude and debt ensues once the offspring deem the couple s lodging an imposition: the two are separated, then reunited weeks later... as they glide inexorably into an uncertain future.

Unrelentingly unsentimental, Make Way for Tomorrow exerted a powerful influence on Ozu s Tokyo Story and several other key entries in the Japanese master s body of work. It is a film that, to give Welles the last word, could make a stone cry. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Leo McCarey s truly great Make Way for Tomorrow for the first time on Blu-ray anywhere in the world, as part of this Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) edition.
