Institute Benjamenta Or This Dream That One Calls Human Life Blu-Ray + DVD
Jakob (Mark Rylance) wants to be of service. Admitted to a peculiar school for servants run by domineering Johannes (Gottfried John) and his sorrowful sister Lisa (Alice Krige), Jakob gradually uncovers the mystical Institute's secrets and, by extension, those of life itself. Presented in a new, director approved transfer, this striking live-action feature is an exquisitely realised anti-fairy tale, a fragile world, which shimmering with luminous energy and hypnotic beauty.
