The 1967 Czech film from František Vlácil is bound for Blu-ray in June.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion will release 'Marketa Lazarová' on Blu-ray on June 18.
Based on a novel by Vladislav Vancura, this stirring and poetic depiction of a feud between two rival medieval clans is a fierce, epic, and meticulously designed evocation of the clashes between Christianity and paganism, humankind and nature, love and violence.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p transfer, an uncompressed monaural soundtrack; and supplements include: New interviews with actors Magda Vášáryová, Ivan Palúch, and Vlastimil Harapes and costume designer Theodor Pištek; New interviews with film historian Peter Hames and journalist and critic Antonín Liehm; a booklet featuring new essays by film scholar Tom Gunning and author and translator Alex Zucker and a 1969 interview with Vlácil by Liehm; and More!
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
