CARANDIRU- Brazil/Argentina

The Brazialian/Argentina entry from Cannes 2003 is set for a UK release-July26.




Synopsis- (via the Brits):

"Columbia Tristar Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Carandiru for 26th July 2004 with a retail price of £19.99. Murderers, rapists, stool pigeons, drug addicts. They were the feared ones, the criminals who really ran Carandiru, Brazil's largest correctional facility: Ebony, an honourable thief and respected leader; Highness, a smooth operator with two families to support; Ezequiel; n ex-surfer turned crack addict; Dagger, a brutal killer with God in his side. They were among the prison's elite, the select few who ruled Carandiru by their own codes and laws. A rule that would end in bloodshed when 300 Policemen stormed the facility and brutally murdered 111 unarmed inmates. This is the true story of that infamous day in October 1992, a day that shocked the world. The day of the Carandiru massacre.

Features include:

* 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
* Brazillian Portuguese and Spanish DD5.1 Surround
* Subtitles: Arabic, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Norwegian, Polish, Portugese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish
* Director's Commentary
* Deleted Scenes
* The Making of Carandiru featurette"

Saw this at a festival in March. It's a great accomplishment for the director which must have been made at great toil and sacrifice. As a film it's a pretty wild ride,too. I hope there are subtitles for the extras on this one.

I'm not sure if this is off-topic but, even though i liked the movie a lot, I wouldn't recommend this as a blind buy.

I think the pace of the movie is not for everyone. but that's just my opinion

We have taken a look at the July 27th UK release of the Brazilian prison drama Carandiru here.

Snippet:
Carandiru wonít be a film for everyone, some may find the somewhat free flowing structure problematic. Indeed I did, on my first watch. Whilst the sequence involving the riot and subsequent massacre contain some of its best material, itís best not to think of it as a movie about the riot, but as one about prison life in general. It is an excellent movie, convincingly acted, sensitively directed and is well worth your time.

Expensive DVD in the US and UK!

I'm buying the Columbia TriStar Region 4 Brazil 2 disc SE. English subtitles on the main film. Not on the extras apparently.
