    A third volume of our acclaimed POLISH CINEMA CLASSICS series. Second Run DVD presents three celebrated works of Polish Cinema, fully restored and presented from new HD digital transfers with restored picture and sound with new English subtitle translations. All three films are released for the first time ever in the UK. Marek Piwowski THE CRUISE (Rejs, 1970) Regarded as Polish cinema s first cult film, Piwowski s absurdist comedy parodies life in the (then) People's Republic of Poland, reducing a weekend river cruise to a hilarious satire of the entire Communist system. Piwowski's gift of observation, humour and an acute awareness of national pathology have made THE CRUISE one of Poland s most popular and widely-known films of the 1970s. Krzysztof Zanussi - CAMOUFLAGE (Barwy ochronne, 1976) A milestone in Polish cinema, CAMOUFLAGE probes deeply into the moral fabric of the society underlying Poland's regime. What Zanussi finds there - corruption, disillusionment, and a generally confused set of public and moral values - marks CAMOUFLAGE among Zanussi s greatest and most politically subversive works. Wojciech Marczewski - SHIVERS (Dreszcze, 1981) SHIVERS is a coming-of-age story set in the 1950s at a Stalinist youth camp. 13 year old Tomek is sent to a camp where he falls under the spell of a an idealistic but manipulative young woman. His captivation with this woman parallels his growing enchantment with Stalinist ideology, and Marczewski s film daringly explores themes of erotic and political fascinations, and of institutional indoctrination and manipulation. All three films are presented in new HD digital transfers with restored picture and sound, and will feature newly filmed, exclusive interviews with the filmmakers + Booklets featuring newly commissioned essays on each film. Extras: New filmed interviews with the filmmakers Booklet essays, Special Features: New HD restorations with restored picture and sound, New and improved English subtitles.
