Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


Unanimous winner of all three main prizes at the 1973 Locarno International Film Festival, Zanussi's landmark film is a dazzling kaleidoscope of ideas and images. Illumination explores the life of a self-absorbed young physicist trying to understand his place in the universe. He thinks science will provide the answers, but ultimately learns far more about himself through experiencing love, betrayal, loss, and facing his own mortality.

As much a philosophical essay as a narrative feature Illumination is a cinematic mosaic combining art and science, intellect and emotion. Innovatively structured, this unflinching examination of one man's life became an iconic cultural marker for a whole generation.

The DVD is presented in a superb new director-approved HD transfer with restored picture and sound and features Marcin Latallo's acclaimed 1996 short film A Trace (Slad) about his father, the lead actor in Illumination, Stanislaw Latallo.
