Mizoguchi films on video or DVD

Postby FF-jason » Wed Jun 04, 2003 11:48 pm

Mizoguchi made over 50 films... and how many are available on video or DVD in the US/UK? Help me compile a list (including OOP) of everything that is out there. Consider this a first step towards action.

List so far...
- 47 Ronin (DVD)
- The Sisters of Gion (VHS)
- The Life of Oharu (VHS)
- The Story of the Last Chrysantheum (VHS)
- Sansho the Bailiff (VHS)
- Street of Shame (VHS)
- Ugetsu (VHS)
- Osaka Elegy (VHS)
- A Geisha (VHS) - OOP
- Princess Yang Kwei Fei (VHS) - OOP

Many thanks,

As only 4 are available in Britain, i had to get some of those listed above from France (with French subtitles)- including Miss Oyu, which is a beautiful neglected little gem. Sisters of the Gion, Street of Shame and Osaka Elegy are available in US, i understand; can anyone say if the videos will work on UK machines? Being in black and white i hope they will turn out o.k, as the French ones did.

American NTSC videos are not compatible with British PAL VCRs. It is possible to convert them to PAL though if you can find somewhere to perform this task.

For FF-Admin

i m a fan of L'Amant. Do you know where i can purchase and download the movie that starred Tony Leung & Jane March, from the internet without having to buy the DVD or VCD.

Your advise and assistance are appreciated.
