BD 32 Tenderness

#1 Post by Ribs » Wed Jul 01, 2020 5:38 pm

Announced on Blu-ray.com.

Slovak filmmaker Martin ulík s striking debut feature is a rich and complex coming-of-age story set against a background of political upheaval and a country in the throws of transformation and revolution.

Simon, a young student, is drawn into a relationship with an older couple, Maria and Viktor, the dynamics of which veer between passion and cruelty. Simon finds himself caught in a love/hate triangle he does not fully comprehend, the key to which is linked to the dark secrets of their past.

Analysing human relations in the early years of post-communism, Tenderness presents a world still profoundly affected by the moral corruption characteristic of the years of following the Soviet invasion of 1968.

Special Features and Technical Specs:
NEW 2K RESTORATION OF THE FILM from original materials supervised by the Slovak Film Institute and approved by the director.
On Tenderness (2020) - a new documentary on the film and its legacy.
Hurá (1989) - Martin ulík s acclaimed short film.
Booklet featuring new writing on the film by author Peter Hames
REGION-FREE

Pretty obscure; only 51 ratings on IMDb! Sounds interesting.
