4 Discs release limited edition


The first ever 4K restoration of DON'T LOOK NOW which was Nicolas Roeg's finest film and, arguably, one of the best British films ever made. Starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, this is a brilliant adaptation of a Daphne Du Maurier short story. On a cold, bright autumn day in Suffolk, England, a little girl in a red mackintosh drowns in a pond - the daughter of John and Laura Baxter. Trying to recover from the tragedy, the couple arrive in Venice, Italy, where John has been commissioned to restore a church. In the eerie atmosphere of the lagoon city in winter, they encounter two strange sisters. Laura is suddenly released from her grief when one of them, a blind psychic, tells her that she is in contact with her dead daughter. Angered and skeptical, John carries on with his work, but witnesses an unsettling vision of his own: a little girl in a red mackintosh disappearing into the Venetian alleys.
As Venice and his fate closes in on John, illusion, reality and sudden terror spiral the story to its grotesque climax, as the design in director Nicolas Roeg's mosaic becomes unforgettably clear.

I've been waiting for this for so long. Hopefully their packaging hasn't changed.

Being in Australia, the only place I can buy UK releases (not from a boutique label) now is Zavvi, and you just can't trust them with collector's editions. I could get Amazon orders forwarded, but they're hit and miss and too. HMV have always been perfect for me even though the forwarding costs are so expensive.

I can actually buy this now! :LOL:

Might be worth a separate thread but this is now available state side at Amazon for the unbeatable price of $71.99. :LOL: Should go down in price closer to its August 9th release date. No info yet on a SteelBook.

EDIT: Gave it a second look and it is an import, so it should be the same exact release.
