The Mourning Forest (2007) (Masters of Cinema) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition

(Not Yet Reviewed)

Ten years after becoming the youngest winner of the Caméra d Or, Naomi Kawase returned to Cannes and claimed the prestigious Grand Prix for The Mourning Forest [Mogari no mori], a beautiful and contemplative portrait of grief. Machiko (Machiko Ono) is a young nurse who still carries the burden of her young son s death. Shigeki (Shigeki Uda) is an elderly widower and a resident at the nursing home where Machiko works. After celebrating Shigeki s birthday, Machiko takes him for a drive in the countryside, but their car breaks down and Shigeki absconds into the nearby... forest. Machiko has no choice but to follow, and they become lost in the dense woodlands, before their fates eventually become entwined. Drawing comparisons to Shohei Imamura (particularly his Palme d Or winning The Ballad of Narayama) and Terence Malick, Naomi Kawase s The Mourning Forest is a hauntingly beautiful, symbolically rich masterpiece, and The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film for the first time ever on Blu-ray, in a special Dual Format edition. DUAL FORMAT SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES: Stunning 1080p presentation on the Blu-ray, with a progressive encode on the DVD Uncompressed PCM audio on the Blu-ray High Definition Stills Gallery PLUS: A booklet featuring a statement from Kawase made at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, alongside stills from the films production [show more]
