Product Description

New hi def color transfer made from 35 mm interpositive - picture: 16x9 Anamorphic 1.85:1 presentation, 5.1 surround sound, subtitled in English, French and Spanish, commentary with director Bruce Beresford, 20 minute interview with actor Edward Woodward, in-depth character breakdown, photo gallery and original theatrical trailer. Synopsis: Based on a true story, Breaker Morant is the tale of three soldiers who are court-martialed at the end of the Boer War. When one of their comrades is ambushed and killed, three soldiers (Edward Woodward, Brian Brown and Lewis Fitz-Gerald) seek revenge and kill a Boer Solider. The act of murder and the mysterious disappearance of a German missionary leads to the arrest of the three men. In one of the most controversial court-martials in military history, they are defended by Major Thomas (Jack Thompson), small town Australian solicitor who has only been given one day to prepare the case.

Additional Features

The "Masterworks Edition" offers excellent print and sound (recorded in 5.1 Dolby) for this landmark Australian film. (If you want to see how bad prints can be, check out the vintage trailer!) Director Bruce Beresford gives an easygoing commentary recorded a quarter-decade after the film's release. His recollection is deft and he draws parallels of the story's history and the wars at the time (the play was written in the Vietnam era, his commentary is during the Iraq War). Interesting to note that Beresford prefers not having a musical score and he mentions how source music is used (very effectively) in the film. A 20-minute fireside interview with Edward Woodward has a few curious tales, most notably about the esteemed actor's foray into horseback riding. --Doug Thomas
