Combining wrenching melodrama with epic sweep, the films of director Raymond Bernard's are some of the finest in French cinema--and some of the least known. As a corrective, this collection includes two of Bernard's best works: his heartbreaking and innovative World War I tragedy, WOODEN CROSSES; and his five-hour version of LES MISERABLES--the richly detailed story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his pursuer, Inspector Javert--long-considered the best adaptation of Victor Hugo's novel.

From a story by 'James Maki', the pseudynom often used by Ozu, 'A Story of Floating Weeds' is the second instalment of the 'Kihachi Trilogy'. Filmed in Kamisuwa, central Japan, this film is partially an adaptation of a silent American film by George Fitzmaurice. Ozu focuses on the theme of erosion of the family. It tells the story of Kihachi, a traveling kabuki troupe master who comes to a small village to perform. He decices to reunite with his former lover and their illegitimate son. Kihachi has hidden his relationship to his son all these years, this enrages his lover and results in heartbreak for all.
From the husband and wife team that gave you NARCOTIC (1933), comes this film loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe's "The Black Cat." A madman kills a scientist and conducts experiments of his own in his rat-infested basement. Regarded by some as the worst film ever made, the film actually straddles the line between experimental and exploitation. In an attempt to mimic insanity, disturbing imagery- still raw by today's standards- fills the screen. Along the way, there are touches of necrophilia, a peek into a (real!) farm where cats are turned into fur coats, and double exposures of demons, and some nudity. Too dark to be campy, too strange to be taken seriously, this one is an original.
