Summary: United Kingdom released, Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C DVD: LANGUAGES: French ( Mono ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.66:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Blu-Ray & DVD Combo, Booklet, Cast/Crew Interview(s), Documentary, Interactive Menu, Posters, Remastered, Scene Access, Short Film, SYNOPSIS: One of the greatest of all medieval films, not least for its utterly distinctive realisation of a recognisable yet alien world, Walerian Borowczyk s third feature was widely hailed as a masterpiece from the moment it first appeared and is still regarded as one of his greatest films. Based on Juliusz S owacki s 19th-century play Mazepa but relocated to 13th-century France, Blanche tells the story of the beautiful young wife (Ligia Branice) of a nobleman many decades older (French acting legend Michel Simon). As innocent as her name suggests, Blanche becomes the unwilling centre of attention in a power struggle between her husband, the visiting King and his page, the latter a notorious womaniser. Its unique visual style resembles a medieval fresco, and its period-instruments soundtrack, adapting the ancient Carmina Burana song book, was years ahead of its time. ...Blanche (1972) (Blu-Ray & DVD Combo) (Blu-Ray)
