Product Description

Product Description

Considered by many to be Britain's most gifted and remarkable filmmaker, Terence Davies' visually stunning, intensely personal films have impressed audiences the world over and seen him proclaimed by critics as one of contemporary cinema's true poets.

THE TERENCE DAVIES TRILOGY (1976-1983) These three semi-autobiographical short films follow the journey of Robert Tucker, first seen as a hangdog child in Children, then as a hollow-eyed middle-aged man in Madonna and Child, and finally as a decrepit old man in Death and Transfiguration. Dreamlike and profoundly moving. UK | 1976-1983 | black and white | English, optional subtitles for the hearing-impaired | 94 minutes | DVD-9 | Original aspect ratio 1.33:1

DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES (1988) An impressionistic view of working-class life in 1940s and 1950s Liverpool starring Freda Dowie and Pete Postlethwaite. Through a series of exquisite tableaux Davies creates a deeply affecting photo album of a troubled family wrestling with the complexity of love. UK | 1988 | colour | English, optional subtitles for the hearing-impaired |80 minutes | DVD-9 | Aspect ratio 1.78:1 (16 x 9 anamorphic)

THE LONG DAY CLOSES (1992) Bud's home is happy and safe, but his Catholic school is a harsh world where teachers administer lashings, and he is bullied and friendless. Once again Davies creates a dreamlike montage of memories, using gliding tracking shots and an artful layering of pop songs and religious music. UK | 1992 | colour | English, optional subtitles for the hearing-impaired | 85 minutes | DVD-9 | Aspect ratio 1.85:1

OF TIME AND THE CITY (2008) Davies revisits the city of his youth in this deeply personal BAFTA-nominated evocation of post-World War II Liverpool. Through the film's patchwork visual poetry, woven entirely from painstakingly researched archival footage, Davies explores an urban landscape that echoes his own troubled past to speak candidly of his childhood experiences. UK | 2008 | colour, and black and white | English, optional subtitles for the hearing-impaired | 74 minutes | DVD-9 | Aspect ratio 1.77: 1 (16 x 9 anamorphic widescreen)

I became aware of Davies through Mark Cousins's series, The Story of Film. How is it that I was not familiar with this great film maker and Director? I have now seen all of his films available to me and I must say that the views into his life and his impressions of English life are simply stunning. The best part of this Davies collection is seeing him and hearing his explanations of his films. For those of us who are admirers of the British nation and its people, these films show the daily social life of ordinary people, clinging to family life and happiness. Anyone who loves film and seeks to understand British life must see the films of Terence Davies. This Collection is a great place to start.

Terence Davies has the ability to allow the viewer to become involved in the life on screen. However many times you watch his films you always find deeper meanings in his script.

This is a great collection of the work of one of the best directors ever! Sparse dialogue give room for wonderful cinematography. These films are enthralling, engaging and sublime

what a great collection of films and great picture quality too. i wish that house of mirth had been included because that would top it off. i bought this new on amazon summer 2011 for £6.50 and what a bargain. i wish terrencee davies would do a film adaptation of chekhov, ibsen or shakespeare for the masses because we need it from someone in britain.
