Seijun Suzuki's The Taisho Trilogy
22,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

HAUNTING, HYPNOTIC, FLAMBOYANT, EROTIC, BIZARRE… SUZUKI! After over a decade in the wilderness following his firing from Nikkatsu for Branded to Kill (1967), maverick director Seijun Suzuki returned with a vengeance with his critically-praised tryptic of cryptic supernatural dramas set during the liberal enlightenment of Japan’s Taisho Era (1912-26). In the multiple Japanese Academy Award-winning Zigeunerweisen (1980), two intellectuals and former colleagues from military academy involve their wives in a series of dangerous sexual games. In Kageroza (1981), a playwright is drawn like a moth to a flame to a mysterious beauty who might be a ghost, while Yumeji (1991) imagines the real-life painter-poet Takehisa Yumeji’s encounter with a beautiful widow with a dark past. Rarely seen outside of Japan, the films in the Taisho Trilogy are considered Suzuki’s masterpieces in his homeland. Presenting a dramatic turn from more his familiar tales of cops, gangsters and unruly youth, these surrealistic psychological puzzles drip with a lush exoticism, distinctively capturing the pandemonium of a bygone age of decadence and excess, when Western ideas, fashions, technologies and art fused into everyday aspect of Japanese life. SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) transfers of all three films Original uncompressed stereo audio Optional English subtitles New introductions to each film by critic Tony Rayns Making-of featurette Vintage interview with Seijun Suzuki Tony Rayns on the Taisho Trilogy, a new appreciation of Suzuki’s trilogy Trailers Reversible sleeve featuring two artwork choices

Over a century ago, The Brothers Grimm compiled an iconic collection of stories. Over forty years ago, American cinema was infected by the walking dead. A few years ago, classic literature fell to that same infection. Now, it is time for the logical, but simultaneously unlikely, fusion of the often mistakenly labeled Grimm's Fairy Tales to fall prey to the gaping maw of undeath. Volume One of Gruesomely Grimm Zombie Tales offers up the first twenty-five stories... with a liberal dose of blood... gore... and of course... zombies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Darla Middlebrook. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/007005/bk_acx0_007005_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this pause-resisting postapocalyptic thriller, Roy M. Griffis explores an alternate timeline in which America falls victim to a coordinated attack by Islamic jihadists and Chinese Communists. It's 2008, and George W. Bush is still president. Three years later the man called Lonesome George is in hiding, leading the resistance from a secret location. Multiple plot lines skillfully braid the tales of resistance fighters in various parts of the country. Whistler is the hard-bitten commander of a military unit in Texas. Karen, a former congressional aide, stumbles through the radioactive rubble of Washington, DC. Griffis also entertainingly works in real-life liberal celebrities and pundits whose eyes are finally opened to threats they once discounted as obsessions of the right. Molly, a left-wing columnist in San Francisco, finally puts her talents to good use on the underground radio as the voice of the resistance. Alec, a famous actor and liberal gadfly, loses his wife and daughter in the nuclear attack on Los Angeles and becomes a legendary fighter, inventing the gun that bears his name. A vivid imagining of an America gone horribly wrong, written in gripping detail. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Fouhey.

The boys at Linbury Court Preparatory School are eager to speed up the progress of space travel, and none more so than Jennings, whose first task is to find a suitable helmet. But is it really a good idea to take a dome-shaped glass-case, which previously housed a stuffed woodpecker, and place it over his head? Petrified paintpots! Jennings and Darbishire's luck is in when they hitch a ride with an international cricketer, and could it be that they've done something right for once when they attempt to apprehend a suspected burglar? Bat-witted clodpoll! According to Jennings is one of a series of 25 books by Anthony Buckeridge. The Jennings stories originated in a series of radio plays for the BBC s Children s Hour, which proved so popular they spawned this delightful series of books. The tales make liberal use of Buckeridge's inventive schoolboy slang ("fossilised fish hooks!," "crystallised cheesecakes!," and others). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Vance.

Love and Youth (eBook, ePUB)
6,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the most romantic of the Russian greats, an enthralling selection of short stories and novellas Ivan Turgenev was able to contain the narrative sweep of a novel in a single short story. His tales evoke the joy and painful tubulence of first love, the grandiose flights of youthful imagination, and the wistful reflections of maturity. Tugenev brought his characters vividly to life, rendering their complex interior lives, whether nobleman or serf, in writing charged with a profound social conscience.This collection, in a lyrical new translation by Nicolas Pasternak Slater and Maya Slater, places Turgenev's great novella First Love alongside a selection of his classic stories. From the evocative rural scenes of 'Bezhin Meadown' and 'The Rattling!' to the pathos and profundity of 'The District Doctor' and 'Biryuk', these are miniature epics brimming with humanity.Ivan Turgenev was born to an aristocratic family in 1818. He wrote plays, poetry, short stories and novels. A liberal who found himself frequently at odds with tsarist rule, he lived for much of his life in Western Europe, where he became friends with writers such as Gustave Flaubert and Henry James. His most famous novel Fathers and Sons was poorly received by many Russian critics. It is now regarded as one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century.

The Bigs: The Secrets Nobody Tells Students and...

What is The Bigs? In baseball, "the bigs" is slang for the big leagues. When you become responsible for yourself, and you are being paid to do a job, you are in the big leagues. The real world is tough, competitive, and much is expected. This is a quintessentially American story of one man's journey through his career and life. Wall Street veteran Ben Carpenter chronicles the people he met, the experiences he had, the mistakes he made, and what he learned along the way. Listeners will encounter a colorful cast of real-life characters which include Big Hank, Hoops, Sweater Girl, The Zombies, Mr. Nuts, The Cheese, Deep Throat, and The RAT. Their tales illuminate Carpenter's progress from newly minted liberal arts graduate, to the owner of an out-of-control bar in Manhattan, to the CEO of a major international investment company. While the real world can be very fun, it's also very much a battle, and that battle is not easy for anyone. The Bigs is an eye-opening audiobook with specific, comprehensive, and practical advice you won't hear anywhere else. This is a book that parents will want to listen to and give to their children - and their children will want to listen and share with their friends. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Podehl.

Tales of the Jazz Age , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 59...

Tales of the Jazz Age is a delightful, sobering, thought-provoking, and downright curious collection of 11 of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short stories, published after his first two novels - This Side of Paradise (1920) and The Beautiful and Damned (1922) - but before The Great Gatsby (1925).  In Tales of the Jazz Age, Fitzgerald takes on the mystery and confusion of love: from Southern temptations ("The Jellybean") to humorous ("The Camel’s Back") to poignant ("The Lees of Happiness") to heartbreakingly cruel ("O Russet Witch") to gay-but-tempered in post-World War I New York, with its dark undertones of alcoholism, communism, a liberal press, and the treatment of returning veterans (May Day).  Fitzgerald moves away from the real world and takes the listener into the fantasy of a gemstone that is, literally, the size of a mountain ("The Diamond as Big as the Ritz"), with echoes of H. G. Wells and rough government authority flying into the story. But, staying with fantasies, Fitzgerald also treats the listener to two plays (Porcelain and Pink and Mr. Icky) that will bring smiles and a few good laughs to the listener’s ears.  It is hard to categorize "The Curious Tale of Benjamin Button" except to say that the listener of this audiobook who has seen or heard about the recent movie of the same name should not - must not - expect anything like that. About all you need to know about Benjamin Button is that his birth and life were anything but normal.  In "Tarquin of Cheapside", Fitzgerald tries out his inner Shakespeare, with an Elizabethan setting and characters that take the listener down dark London streets and into a rather unexpected but satisfying conclusion. And if London of the 16th century is not enough color for the listener of this audiobook, then "Jemina, the Mountain Girl" will transport you deep into the Kentucky hills, where family feuds over moonshine and card gam 1.
