The National Health (Dual Format Limited Edition)
21,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Jack Gold's film about life and death in a shabby London hospital interweaves the story of the real hospital with a fantasy one which exists in the soap-opera world of 'Nurse Norton's Affair', where everything is fully funded and patients are miraculously cured. A darkly funny satire on the state of the nation and also a deeply prescient comment on TV's ability to turn tragedy into entertainment, The National Health sits somewhere between the bawdy antics of the Carry On films and the angry satire of Lindsay Anderson’s Britannia Hospital, but emerges as a starkly prophetic film, more relevant now than ever. Available for the first time ever in the UK. INDICATOR LIMITED EDITION SPECIAL FEATURES: High Definition remaster Original mono audio New audio commentary with star Jim Dale New interview with playwright and author Peter Nichols (2017, tbc mins) Original theatrical trailer Image gallery: on-set and promotional photography New English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing Limited edition exclusive booklet with a new essay by Laura Mayne, an overview of contemporary critical responses, and historic articles on the film World premiere on Blu-ray UK DVD premiere Limited Dual Format Edition of 3,000 copies

Jack lebt mit seiner Frau Milly, einer reichen Erbin, im vornehmen Londoner Viertel Hampstead. Einst war er der vielversprechendste Komponist Großbritanniens. Nun ist er in einer Schaffenskrise, seine Kariere im freien Fall. Jack reist für drei Wochen nach Estland, um im Land seines Idols Arvo Pärt seine Inspiration wiederzufinden. Er lernt eine Kellnerin kennen, Kaya, es entwickelt sich eine leidenschaftliche Affäre. Als er abreist, ist alles vorbei. Es ist das Jahr 2005, London wurde gerade von terroristischen Anschlägen erschüttert. Sechs Jahre nach Jacks Reise nach Tallin holt ihn die Vergangenheit mit einer Wucht ein, die sein Leben - und auch Millys - vollständig durcheinander wirft. Jack sieht keine andere Möglichkeit, als nach Tallin zu reisen, um die Angelegenheit zu klären und die Wahrheit herauszufinden. Als er ankommt, ist es zu spät ... Eine Geschichte von Liebe und Betrug, von Alter und Jugend, von Reichtum und Armut, vom "neuen"und" alten"Europa, von Kunst und Kompromissen, von jugendlichen Idealen und zynischem Überdruss. Taktverschiebung ist eine bewegende Liebesgeschichte, zugleich eine bissige zeitgenössische Satire über soziale und emotionale Orientierungslosigkeit.

Country of the Blind
11,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

British critics have compared Christopher Brookmyre's writing to the 'sassy, nasty, fast style of the Americans Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen' (The Guardian) and called his work 'perpetually in-your-face ... irreverent and stylish' (The Times). Now he returns with another cracked gem of a comic thriller: Country of the Blind. This time, hard-bitten investigative journalist Jack Parlabane -- hero of Brookmyre's award-winning novel Quite Ugly One Morning-finds himself up to his eyeballs in murder, mayhem, and political intrigue when conservative tabloid media mogul Roland Voss is discovered at his country estate with his throat slit and his wife and bodyguards killed. The police have arrested four men fleeing the scene, but for Parlabane it all doesn't add up and he suspects the fix is in ... unless he can get to the bottom of things before everybody else. Packed with Brookmyre's distinctive collection of wacked-out characters and fueled by his trademark hell-for-leather pacing, Country of the Blind is a tart 'tartan noir' that will leave you breathless with suspense -- if you're not asphyxiated by convulsions of laughter first. 'A high-octane political thriller doused in stinging satire.' -- The Sunday Times (London)
