The Perfect Husband

The Perfect Husband Lowest new price: $20.85
Lowest used price: $19.49
List price: $19.98

Based on a story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Perfect Husband is a suspenseful hybrid of tense psychological drama and period love triangle. Set in Prague in 1900, this emotionally inhibited roller coaster revolves around three friends who met at a spa seven years ago. Gifted musician Milan (Tim Roth) is an unabashed womanizer who wins over even the most difficult-to-conquer women and whose propensity for seduction has led to 29 duels and counting with their affronted husbands. Wealthy spa manager Franz (Peter Firth) is much harder to read. His always proper, button-down demeanor cloaks a surprisingly tumultuous, fiery inner nature--when a stranger on a train, reminding him that smoking is not allowed, takes his pipe and throws it out the window, he calmly throws her dog out the window, reminding her that animals are not allowed. Franz's wife, Therese (Ana Belén), becomes the third point on the triangle.

The story begins when Franz appears unexpectedly at Milan's home. The action bounces between flashbacks that gradually reveal Milan's feverish affair with Franz's wife and Franz's current psychological manipulations that will reveal whether or not he knew about the affair and who his mysterious travel companion is. An enthralling period drama with an underlying air of mystery and psychological tension, The Perfect Husband is an erudite antidote to too much mindless television. The DVD also includes a scene index. --Tara Chace


Conspirators of Pleasure

Conspirators of Pleasure Lowest used price: $29.95

Selling much of my personal collection; not a dealer. Like all of my used DVDs, I watched it once and put it on a shelf; no scractches on disk. I'd say it looks just like it would with one use. This is a very strange and unusual presentation with many uses of puppets, clay changing shape, and the like. For that reason, an intersting DVD. Because this Czech director does such unusual things, I've leaned toward not sellling his Faust though a lack of space may win out so keep checking if you like the director. This appears to be out of print.

Banned for decades, this rediscovered classic of Holocaust Cinema was shot only three years after the war ended, making it one of the first films to deal with the Holocaust. DISTANT JOURNEY follows the struggles of Dr. Hannah Kaufman and her family from the time of the Nazi Occupation of Prague through her experiences in the transit camp of Theresienstadt (modern Terezin). Director Alfred Radok skillfully weaves together documentary-style footage with expressionist dramatic sequences to convey both the reality of history and the nightmare of its impact.

The Great Water

The Great Water Lowest new price: $56.25
Lowest used price: $9.97

A man near the end of his life relives a crucial period from his youth in this powerful drama. Lem Nikodinoski (Meto Jovanovski) is a prominent Macedonian politician who has suffered a severe heart attack. As Lem drifts between life and death, his mind wanders to his childhood, and he observes his younger self (played by Saso Kekenovski) during his days in a camp for children whose parents were unwilling to embrace Russia's Stalinist regime following World War II. Ariton (Mitko Apostolovski), the camp's headmaster, is a strong taskmaster, but he displays a genuine compassion for his charges; Olivera (Verica Nedeska), his second in command, takes a more stern approach, and is willing to dole out physical punishment to any child who does not absorb her Stalinist teachings. One day, a new boy enters the camp, Isak (Maja Stankovska), who displays a calm but resilient nature that's different from the fearful attitudes of the other children. After initial resistance, Lem becomes close friends with Isak, and their friendship helps Lem confront the horrors of camp life in a new way.

Old Believers

Old Believers Brand: FACETS VIDEO

Filmmaker Jana Sevcikova spent years in the outlands of Eastern Europe, chronicling the descendants of immigrants and exiles to these remote lands. The results are three revealing documentaries that capture the unique lives and customs of people unknown to most of the world. The award-winning Old Believers (2001) documents a strongly religious community where time seems to stand still, but does it? During the 17th century, Russian immigrants of a minority faith settled in a remote area of Romania’s Danube Delta, allowing them to preserve their original language and beliefs, but yet the people enjoy modern conveniences. Piemule (1984) offers a close look at the descendants of Czech immigrants in Romania, and Jakub (1992) tells the story of Jakub Popovich, a Ruthenian in western Bohemia whose life spanned the tumultuous events of the region from 1947 to 1992. These exceptional documentaries are poetic, intimate portraits that capture both the humanity and mystery of people from another place, another time.
