Blu-ray Release: Love and Death

Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 10, 2015
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

Woody Allen (Blue Jasmine) takes on the monolith of Russian literature—with a bit of Ingmar Bergman thrown in for good measure—with 1975’s Love and Death, a deadpan costume comedy epic set against the sweeping backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars.

LoveDeathAllen plays Boris, a philosophical coward who becomes an inadvertent war hero and then a potential assassin thanks to the encouragement of his mad(cap) wife, Sonja (Diane Keaton, Morning Glory).

Shot by the great cinematographer Ghislain Cloquet (Tess), the movie features a brilliant turn by James Tolkan (Top Gun) as the great Napoleon, who insists to his royal chefs that if a pastry is going to be named after him, it must have more cream and no raisins!

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, the time to order your Blu-ray discs directly from distributor Screen Archives is NOW!
