Gate of Hell Officially Announced

Posted October 11, 2012 03:58 PM by Webmaster

Eureka EntertainmentEureka Entertainment have detailed their upcoming Dual Format edition of Japanese director Teinosuke Kinugasa's Jigokumon a.k.a Gate of Hell (1953), starring Kazuo Hasegawa, Machiko Kyô, Isao Yamagata. The release will be available for purchase on December 3rd.

One of the key works of the early 1950s wave of Japanese films to first reach foreign markets, director Teinosuke Kinugasa's sumptuous period drama astonished audiences with its dramatic force and spectacular colour cinematography.

During feudal unrest in the 12th century, samurai warrior Moritō (Kazuo Hasegawa) manages to thwart a palace rebellion and save the life of the empress, using loyal subject Lady Kesa (Machiko Kyō) as a decoy. When Moritō is offered anything he should desire as reward, he requests Kesa's hand in marriage. Informed that she is already married to a fellow samurai (Isao Yamagata), he refuses to withdraw his request, setting in motion a tragic chain of events.

Three decades after the director's iconic A Page of Madness, Teinosuke Kinugasa's striking tale of feudal intrigue, political machinations, and erotic obsession won the Grand Prix at Cannes, two Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film and Costume Design, and has since been named by Martin Scorsese as one of the ten greatest colour achievements in world cinema.

Special Features:
  • Beautifully restored high-definition master presented in the film's original aspect ratio, in 1080p on the Blu-ray
  • Newly translated optional English subtitles
  • Illustrated booklet featuring the words of Kinugasa, rare archival imagery, and more
  • Further details to be announced nearer the release date!
