The David Lean Centenary (10 Films) Movie Collection DVD
David Lean was one of the greatest directors of the twentieth century. His masterpieces have captivated generations and his visual flare influenced film makers including Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese. A Nick James (Editor, Sight & Sound) enthused, Lean '...made enduringly gripping and entertaining films... every moment counts towards the primacy of thrilling the audience'. The ten films in this stunning Centenary Collection comprise his early works, including Brief Encounter and Great Expectations which the British Film Institute ranked amongst the top 5 British movies ever made. Each film resonates with power and poignancy and shows why, in the words of the New York Times, 'Audiences adore David Lean films'. All ten classics have been beautifully restored. Sight & Sound called the restorations 'marvellous' and film critic David Thomson hailed these films, 'lively, stirring and an inspiration'. The David Lean Centenary Collection emerges as a 'must have' for anyone who has ever marvelled at the majesty of Cinema.
The collection comprises; Brief Encounter, Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, Blithe Spirit, In Which We Serve, Madeleine, Hobson's Choice, The Sound Barrier, The Passionate Friends, This Happy Breed.
