New Wave DVD releases: Caesar Must Die and The Wall are out on DVD today

Caesar Must Die and The Wall are available to buy from today in our shop

Caesar Must Die is directed by legendary directors Paolo & Vittorio Taviani and was the winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival 2012:

Each year the inmates of Rome’s high security Rebibbia prison, incarcerated mostly for Mafia-related crimes, put on a play. The Taviani brothers follow the rehearsals and performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, a play where the conspiracies and betrayals echo the past and present lives of the prisoners. The actors become prisoners once again as they are accompanied back to their cells. As one of the prisoner-turned-actor remarks towards the end of the film: "Since I discovered art, this cell has become a prison."

The DVD includes 40 minutes behind the scenes and interviews with the actors and directors.
The Wall, directed by Julian Roman Pölsler and starring Martina Gedeck (The Lives of Others) is a contemporary female Robinson Crusoe story. 
Based on Marlen Haushofer’s best-selling eponymous novel from the 1960s, the film is a highly original exploration of the experience of solitude and survival.
Gedeck plays an unnamed Austrian woman who goes to a secluded Alpine hunting lodge with her cousin (Ulrike Beimpold) and the latter's husband (Karl Heinz Hackl) who, shortly after their arrival, decide to visit the nearest village. When the couple does not return the next morning the woman sets out for the village and discovers an invisible wall, behind which there appears to be no sign of life. The wall now separates her from the rest of the world. Left behind with a dog, a cat and a cow, she must try to survive alone in the forest. She keeps a record of her thoughts, her fears and the hardship she suffers although nobody might ever read her outpourings.

Order The Wall and Caesar Must Die from the Viva Verve Shop (currently on 30% off Christmas sale on titles released before the 30th of September).
