Editorial Reviews

Alexander Dovzhenko is regarded by some to be 'the most neglected major film-maker of the 20th Century'. Mr. Bongo's box-set presents his three major works in a single boxset. When placed together, they chronicle Ukraine s tumultuous transformation from a pastoral, traditional, society into a modern communist state. ZVENIGORA Alexander Dovzhenko's unconventional vision and experimental style remained rooted in his love for his native Ukraine; its culture and its people. Zvenigora, his first major film, is also his most joyous work, immediately hailed as a masterpiece by Sergei Eisenstein and V. I. Pudovkin. ARSENAL A 'white hot war film' in Jonathan Rosenbaum's words, Arsenal is placed alongside Battleship Potemkin as the great revolutionary masterpiece of Soviet cinema. It s famous for its frank depiction of violence and its aggressive vision of the impact of modern warfare on a landscape rich in centuries of tradition. EARTH Earth has remained Dovzhenko's most famous work, a vital influence on the films of Andrei Tarkovsky, Sergei Parajanov and artists around the world. This tale of generation conflict between traditional and modern Ukraine contains some of the most beautiful and unforgettable images in film history.

It would not play on my DVD player. Everything else, including Blu-ray plays on it -- but not these discs!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Believe I Didn't Watch Them Sooner January 28, 2014

Arrived on time and intact. Wonderful films by a highly underrated early filmmaker. I would definitely recommend these films to anyone interested in silent film or the Soviet era.

2.0 out of 5 stars Warning: Region 1, but PAL July 16, 2014
By pemory

Dovzhenko was a master filmmaker who produced transcendent works of art, yet this collection is not ideal for U.S. & Canadian viewers. Why? Because while the disks are Region 1, they're PAL, not NTSC, so the typical DVD player purchased in this part of the world will not be able to display them. Most CD/DVD drives on computers & laptops can play these, but given that these films were meant to be screened on something much bigger than a computer monitor, they're not very useful in this format. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
