Raymond Bernard: Eclipse From The Criterion Collection DVD
SKU ID #324051
The stunning dramas contained on this Criterion Eclipse edition, 2-disc set from nearly forgotten French film director Raymond Bernard offer ample evidence that his is a career worth re-examining. Pierre Blanchar and Gabriel Gabrio star in "Wooden Crosses" (1932), a mesmerizing and downbeat tale of soldiers on the front lines in World War I. Then Harry Baur is fugitive Jean Valjean in Bernard's exquisite, epic (over four hours long) and faithful adaptation of Victor Hugo's great novel, "Les Miserables" (1934).
