The Early Films Of Olivier Assayas [Blu-ray]
Enhance your purchase
Now recognised as one of French cinema s finest talents courtesy of such modern classics as Irma Vep, Carlos, Summer Hours and Clouds of Sils Maria, Olivier Assayas started out as critic and screenwriter before making his debut feature as director in 1986. The Early Films presents this work, Disorder, and his second feature, Winter s Child, in the UK for the first time.
Disorder concerns a group of friends in a post-punk band. When a robbery at a music store turns fatal, the resulting chaos threatens both their working relationship and their long-held friendships as they leave France to tour London and potentially make their big break.
Released two years later, Winter s Child presents a four-person, two-couple tragedy of passion. Natalia is pregnant, but the child s father, Stéphane, doesn t want to know and abandons her. He meets Sabine, a set designer, and falls in love but she is struggling with her attachment to Bruno, an actor with whom she had a brief fling.

Update January 2019. The second replacement I got from Amazon now works perfectly. The releasing company also confirmed that the first production batch had that problem only and current copies of the movie are in playable state.
Buyers prior to January 2019 might wanna check their discs.
The films by the way are great!
