    Seijun Suzuki's The Taisho Trilogy Limited Edition

    After over a decade in the wilderness following his firing from Nikkatsu for "Branded to Kill" (1967), maverick director Seijun Suzuki returned with a vengeance with his critically-praised tryptic of cryptic supernatural dramas set during the liberal enlightenment of Japan's Taisho Era (1912-26). In the multiple Japanese Academy Award-winning "Zigeunerweisen" (1980), two intellectuals and former colleagues from military academy involve their wives in a series of dangerous sexual games. In "Kageroza" (1981), a playwright is drawn like a moth to a flame to a mysterious beauty who might be a ghost, while "Yumeji" (1991) imagines the real-life painter-poet Takehisa Yumeji's encounter with a beautiful widow with a dark past. Presented together on Blu-ray for the first time outside of Japan, the films in the Taisho Trilogy are considered Suzuki's masterpieces in his homeland. Presenting a dramatic turn from more his familiar tales of cops, gangsters and unruly youth, these surrealistic psychological puzzles drip with a lush exoticism, distinctively capturing the pandemonium of a bygone age of decadence and excess, when Western ideas, fashions, technologies and art fused into everyday aspect of Japanese life. Formats: Blu-ray/DVD Combo with High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations, with original stereo audio (uncompressed on the Blu-ray). Extras: New introductions to each film by critic Tony Rayns, making-of featurette, vintage interview with Seijun Suzuki, limited edition packaging featuring newly commissioned artwork by Corey Brickley.

And with this exquisite ghost story, a fatalistic wartime tragedy derived from stories by Akinari Ueda and Guy de Maupassant, he created a touchstone of his art, his long takes and sweeping camera guiding the viewer through a delirious narrative about two villagers whose pursuit of fame and fortune leads them far astray from their loyal wives.

Set in Germany and France in the aftermath of the First World War, the film recalls the mourning period that follows great national tragedies as seen through the eyes of the war’s “lost generation.” They are Anna (21 year-old Paula Beer in a breakthrough performance), a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed during trench warfare, and Adrien (Pierre Niney), a French war veteran who shows up mysteriously in Anna’s town, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave.
