Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido Anselmi, a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life. One of the greatest films about film ever made, Federico Fellini’s 8½ (Otto e mezzo) turns one man’s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. An early working title for 8½ was The Beautiful Confusion, and Fellini’s masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream, a circus, and a magic act.

Jean-Paul Belmondo delivers a subtly sensual performance in the hot-under-the-collar Léon Morin, Priest (Léon Morin, prêtre), directed by Jean-Pierre Melville. The French superstar plays a devoted man of the cloth who is desired by all the women of a small village in Nazi-occupied France. He finds himself most drawn to a sexually frustrated widow—played by Emmanuelle Riva—a religious skeptic whose relationship with her confessor turns into a confrontation with both God and her own repressed desire. A triumph of mood, setting, and innuendo, Léon Morin, Priest is an irreverent pleasure from one of French cinema’s towering virtuosos.

EVE comes to realize that WALL-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL-E chases EVE across the galaxy.

Mulholland Drive (2001)
A Film by David Lynch

Audio: English AC3 5.1/2.0 @ 448/224 Kbps | Subtitles: None
Genre: Mystery, Thriller | Nominated for Oscar + 33 wins | France, USA

Beautiful, bizarre and strangely addictive Mullholland Drive begins as a botched hit results in the meeting of bruised brunette amnesiac Rita (Laura Harring) and blonde would-be Hollywood actress Betty (Naomi Watts – King Kong, 21 Grams). Taking the viewer on a memorable neo-noir trip through Hollywood’s dark underbelly, Lynch dispenses with a conventional narrative in favour of an hallucinogenic assault on the senses that will stay with you long after the credits roll.

Pergolesi - Il Prigionier Superbo & La Serva Padrona (Corrado Rovaris) (2010) [BluRay-rip]

Pergolesi - Il Prigionier Superbo & La Serva Padrona (Corrado Rovaris) (2010) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 29,970 fps | 177 min | 9,58GB
Audio: Italian / DTS / 6ch / 48.0 KHz / 24 bits
Sub: Italiano, English, Deutsch, Francais, Espanol, Japanese, Korean

The Fondazione Pergolesi Spontini, which has been devoting itself to the research and performance of Pergolesi‘s music for years now, had his operas recorded live at the annual Music Festival in Jesi. Released on this BD are two productions from Jesi of one almost forgotten opera, Il prigionier superbo, and one of Pergolesi’s most popular works, La serva padrona, combined like they were at the original premiere.
Donizetti - Anna Bolena (Fabio Biondi, Marta Torbidoni, Laura Polverelli) (2013) [BluRay-rip]

Donizetti - Anna Bolena (Fabio Biondi, Marta Torbidoni, Laura Polverelli) (2013) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 29,970 fps | 163 min | 8,87GB
Audio: Italian / DTS / 6ch / 48.0 KHz / 24 bits
Sub: Italian, English, German, French, Japanese

This production of Anna Bolena faithfully meets the musical vision proposed by Fabio Biondi. The mise-en-scène, therefore, excludes any explicit reference to the plot’s historical time, and the events have been set at the beginning of the 1800s, when Donizetti’s opera was premièred.
Pergolesi - Il Flaminio (Ottavio Dantone, Accademia Bizantina) (2010) [BluRay-rip]

Pergolesi - Il Flaminio (Ottavio Dantone, Accademia Bizantina) (2010) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 29,970 fps | 183 min | 9,0GB
Audio: Italian / DTS / 6ch / 48.0 KHz / 24 bits
Sub: Italiano, English, Francais, Deutsch, Espanol, Japanese, Korean

The 2010 Jesi production is conscious of the complexity of Flaminio for all its seeming simplicity and cleverly exploits the suggestive milieu of the Teatro Valeria Moriconi, in particular its shape and relatively small scale. Without any attempt at realism, (the main action takes place “in a villa on the outskirts of the city of Naples, complete with hunting lodge, etc.”, but just a handful of props to symbolise the bucolic atmosphere), the production concentrates on establishing a kind of meta-theatrical relationship to this repertoire work which sets out to highlight the interweaving and overlayering of truth and fiction, passion and irony, tragedy and comedy.
Rossini - Semiramide (Alberto Zedda, Myrto Papatanasiu, Ann Hallenberg) (2011) [BluRay-rip]

Rossini - Semiramide (Alberto Zedda, Myrtò Papatanasiu, Ann Hallenberg) (2011) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 29,970 fps | 238 min | 12,9GB
Audio: Italian / DTS / 5ch / 48.0 KHz / 16 bits
Sub: Italian, English, German, French, Japanese

The composition of Semiramide took approximately four months, which is an unusually long span for Rossini. The premiere took place on the 3rd of February of 1823. The opera’s libretto is based on Voltaire’s drama Sémiramis, written by the French philosopher and scholar in 1748. For some respects a conclusive work, Semiramide contains, like all masterpieces, traditional elements alongside innovative ones. Rossini accentuated the role of the orchestra, compared to his previous serious operas: the Sinfonia, the longest and most elaborate Rossini ever wrote, immediately suggests Rossini endeavoured to give the instrumental part a more important role yet than usual. At the same time, the bel canto dimension is probably more developed than in any other previous Rossinian serious opera.
Rameau - Platee (Marc Minkowski, Paul Agnew, Mireille Delunsch) (2002) [BluRay-rip]

Rameau - Platée (Marc Minkowski, Paul Agnew, Mireille Delunsch) (2002) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 29,970 fps | 150 min | 8,16GB
Audio: French / PCM / 2ch / 48.0 KHz / 16 bits
Sub: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian

The opera Platée by Jean Philippe Rameau is not just a comic opera but an opera in which the Gods of Olympus play a part. With his tragedies lyriques Jean Baptiste Lully had banned all comical characters from the opera, and musical comedies had become unfashionable. Thanks to works by André Campra and Jean-Joseph Mouret, however, the genre had not disappeared completely, and Rameau made his own contribution with Platée.
