A couple of great discs round out the week in home video.
Couscous. Otherwise known as La Graine et le mullet, and The Secret Of The Grain, Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue Is The Warmest Colour predecessor is one of the best films of the 2000s. A timely release from Artificial Eye, with the film hopefully drawing a fresh audience in the wake of the success of the directors latest film.
Suzanne. France again, with Katell Quillevéré’s film having played well on the festival circuit last year. Our complete review can be found here.
Nebraska. Alexander Payne looks inward for his latest film, a work decidedly more low key than something like The Descendants.
The Hunchback Of Notre Dame. The definitive adaptation of the Hugo tale features an iconic performance from Charles Laughton.
Pom Poko. The latest title in Studio Canal’s plot to release the complete Studio Ghibli on Blu-ray is the delightfully peculiar Pom Poko.
