PADRE PADRONE:

"Stirringly affirmative...vivid and very moving." - The New York Times

Winner of the coveted Palme d'Or, the story of young, barely literate shepherd boy Gavino who lives under the thumb of his tyrannical peasant father. He is ultimately rescued from his family and his isolated lifestyle by a call to military service, eventually emerging as a brilliant linguist and scholar. Based on the book by Gavino Ledda.

NIGHT OF THE SHOOTING STARS:

"One of the greatest films of the 1980's." - Film Threat

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival. Set during the summer of 1944 in a small Tuscan town caught between the threat of destruction by retreating German forces and the advancing American army, this is a bedtime story told by a mother to her child. A recollection of her experience during the war which takes on the quality of fairytale as seen through the eyes of a six year old. In it, the Tavianis create some of their most lyrical and poetic cinema.

KAOS:

"Rigorous and eloquent, effortlessly poetic, KAOS is the Tavianis at their best." _ The New York Times

With a free adaptation from Luigi Pirandello's words, the Taviani brothers have constructed an ethereal odyssey into the Sicilian landscape - with four stories and an epilogue - it brings together all the main actors with whom the Tavianis had previously collaborated with in a voluptuous naturalistic trip.


DVD Extras Include:

New 2K Restorations | NEW Two-Part Interview with the Taviani Brothers | Trailers
