Claude Chabrol’s career of bringing strong female characters (working regularly with Stéphane Audran and Isabelle Huppert) to the screen is on full display in his collaboration with Alida Valli (The Third Man) and Juliette Mayniel (Eyes Without a Face) in Ophélia.


YEAR: 1962
GENRE: DRAMA
LANGUAGE: FRENCH (with English subtitles)
LABEL: OLIVE FILMS
TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 104 mins
RATING: N/R
VIDEO: 1.66:1 Aspect Ratio; B&W
AUDIO: MONO


Claude Chabrol (Le Boucher) directs the inspired-by-Shakespeare cinematic gem Ophélia, starring Alida Valli (The Third Man).

Ivan (André Jocelyn, Les Cousins), a high-strung and intense young man of means, suspecting that his mother, Claudia (Valli), and Uncle Adrian (Claude Cerval, Belle de Jour) are responsible for the death of his father, sets out to reveal their foul deed.

Imagining himself a modern day Hamlet, Ivan goes about wooing Lucy (Juliette Mayniel, Eyes Without a Face), the beautiful daughter of his parents’ groundskeeper, convincing her to become the de facto Ophelia of the piece. Concocting a clever ruse to unmask the accused, Ivan’s fever dream of revenge takes a unexpected turn in Ophélia, Claude Chabrol’s witty and darkly comic reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, Hamlet.

Ophélia, directed by Claude Chabrol from a screenplay by Chabrol, Paul Gégauff
and Martial Matthieu, features stark black & white cinematography courtesy of Jean Rabier (Chabrol’s Le Boucher and Madame Bovary, Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Agnès Varda’s Cleo from 5 to 7) and a haunting score by Pierre Jansen (Le Boucher, The Lacemaker).

PIERRE COLLET
(Greed in the Sun, Le Cercle Rouge, French Connection II)

(War of the Buttons, A Horse for Two, Run for Your Wife)

Directed by
WALERIAN BOROWCZYK
(Blanche; Immoral Tales; Goto, Isle of Love)

Walerian Borowczyk, the director of the controversial live action films Blanche, Immoral Tales and Lulu, would show his more playful side with his animated feature Theatre of Mr. & Mrs. Kabal.


YEAR: 1967
GENRE: ANIMATION COMEDY
LANGUAGE: FRENCH (with optional English subtitles)
LABEL: OLIVE FILMS
TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 78 mins
RATING: N/R
VIDEO: 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; COLOR and B&W
AUDIO: MONO


Walerian Borowczyk’s (Blanche) Theatre of Mr. & Mrs. Kabal is a glimpse inside the weird and wonderful world of the theatrical Kabals. The henpecked Mr. Kabal, prone to ogling young females through his binoculars, is never quite beyond the reach of the statuesque and domineering Mrs. Kabal who flutters about (quite literally when butterflies appear inside of her stomach) in a connubial reign of terror. Although it may not always be le beau mariage, Mr. and Mrs. Kabal are nonetheless made for each other.

The years-in-the-making feature length animated film from the controversial director of Goto, Isle of Love and Immoral Tales, featuring the voice talents of Pierre Collet (Greed in the Sun) and Louisette Rousseau (War of the Buttons), is akin to other Borowczyk animated works such as The Astronauts, Renaissance and Angels’ Games.

Goto, Isle of Love is one of several collaborations (including Blanche and Interno di un convento) between director Walerian Borowczyk and leading actress and wife, Ligia Branice.

YEAR: 1968
GENRE: DRAMA
LANGUAGE: FRENCH (with English subtitles)
LABEL: OLIVE FILMS
TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 94 mins
RATING: N/R
ASPECT RATIO: 1.66:1 Aspect Ratio; COLOR / B&W
AUDIO: MONO

EXTRAS
  • Introduction by artist and Turner Prize nominee Craigie Horsfield
  • The Concentration Universe: Goto, Isle of Love – Interview program featuring actor Jean-Pierre Andréani, co-writer Dominique Duvergé-Ségrétin, cameraman Noël Véry and camera assistant Jean-Pierre Platel

With Goto, Isle of Love, director Walerian Borowczyk (Blanche) would cement his status as a visual stylist, weaver of erotic tales, and a filmmaker whose work would both confront and celebrate society’s taboos.

Goto, Isle of Love is a tale of infidelity, revenge, and repressed love, both chaste and illicit, starring Pierre Brasseur (Port of Shadows) as Goto III, an unstable and jealous dictator married to the beautiful Glossia (Ligia Branice, Blanche). Unbeknownst to Goto III, Glossia is carrying on an affair with one of his guards, the handsome Lieutenant Gono (Jean-Pierre Andreani, The Story of O). Also lusting after the dictator’s wife is Grozo (Guy Saint-Jean, The Killing Game), a petty thief who, by winning the confidence of Goto III, plans to win Glossia for himself. Simmering passions will boil over on the isle, leading to a surprising denouement.

Shot in haunting shades of black & white and color by cinematographer Guy Durban (Immoral Tales), Goto, Isle of Love is written for the screen by director Borowczyk with additional dialogue by Dominique Duvergé.

Walerian Borowczyk’s Blanche, the winner of the Berlin International Film Festival’s Interfilm Grand Prix Award (1972) features actress and frequent collaborator Ligia Branice (Goto, Island of Love) in the lead role.

YEAR: 1971
GENRE: DRAMA
LANGUAGE: FRENCH (with English subtitles)
LABEL: OLIVE FILMS
TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 94 mins
RATING: N/R
VIDEO: 1.66:1 Aspect Ratio; COLOR
AUDIO: MONO

EXTRAS
  • Introduction by director Leslie Megahey
  • Ballad of Imprisonment: Blanche – Interview program featuring producer Dominique Duvergé-Ségrétin, assistant director André Heinrich, camera operator Noël Véry and assistant Patrice Leconte

Set in medieval France, an elderly noble baron (Michel Simon, L’Atalante) and his much younger bride, the beautiful Blanche (Ligia Branice, Goto, Isle of Love) welcome a visiting King (George Wilson, Les destinées) and his handsome page, Bartolomeo (Jacques Perrin, Cinema Paradiso) to their castle, and sets in motion accusations of disloyalty and marital infidelity, turning what should be a fairytale into a nightmare.

Walerian Borowczyk (The Beast), whose stylized vision of a bygone world, is key to the overall look and feel of Blanche, which despite its period surroundings, embraces very modern sensibilities.

Blanche, written and directed by Walerian Borowczyk (based on the poem Mazepa by Juliusz Slowacki), features performances by Jacques Perrin (Cinema Paradiso), Denise Péronne (Forbidden Games) and Lawrence Trimble (Meetings in theForest).

The Boro films were all previously released by Arrow Academy in a limited edition Region B set with many more extra features than the Olives. Still, it's good to have these in Region A releases.

Cant say these titles are of any interest - maybe thats a good thing with all the other labels, especially Shout Factory knocking it out of the park with their horror titles :)

Outside of the Savage Innocents I haven't seen anything else about Olive's new releases? Is there anything else in the pipeline?

Olive has decided to stop sending us their press releases, Timothy.

I am assuming this related to public criticism over their non 3D release of "Money From Home"

It's sad that they are taking this position. We have no other choice than not to promote Olive Films on HTF moving forward.

Mr. Epstein:

Thanks for letting me know. That's disappointing that they are taking that position. I typically have bought quite a few of their titles.
