A lifetime of police work has left Kurt Wallander with the look of a man who’s seen too much. In a spare and compelling performance, Krister Henriksson does justice to the detective beloved by fans of the crime novels by Henning Mankell. The series depicts a police team in the city of Ystad, Sweden, confronting the darkness of the human heart. Wallander works with his daughter Linda, who shares his instinct for crime solving and Stefan Lindman, a young detective eager to prove himself.
In celebration of the life and career of French maestro Claude Chabrol, who recently passed away at the age of 80, First Run Features is pleased to present two of the legendary director’s classic thrillers in this two-disc Special Edition. Hailed as the French master of the Hitchcockian thriller, Chabrol directed more than 60 films in a career spanning over half a century. Two of his most delightfully macabre are included here. La Demoiselle d’Honneur (The Bridesmaid) It’s love at first sight when bridesmaid Senta falls into the life of handsome young Philippe at the wedding of his younger sister. As their passion for one another intensifies, Philippe slowly discovers that Senta is shrouded in mystery. When one day she asks Philippe to perform a terrible deed as proof of his love for her, Philippe must come to terms with who his lover might really be. Based on the novel by Ruth Rendell, "the best mystery writer in the English-speaking world" (Time Magazine) and starring Benoit Magimel (The Piano Teacher) and Laura Smet (daughter of actress Nathalie Baye and French rock idol Johnny Hallyday). Merci Pour le Chocolat (Thank You for the Chocolate) This is vintage Chabrol: intricate plots wend their way through the elegant homes of several well-heeled French-Swiss, in Lausanne, Switzerland. Isabelle Huppert stars as Mika, the oh-so-perfect head of a company that manufactures Swiss chocolate; Jacques Dutronc is Andre, her suave, concert pianist husband whose first wife died years ago in a mysterious car accident. How is it that Andre’s teenage son has no musical talent, while the stunning Jeanne, who shares his birthday, is already a world-class pianist? And why does Huppert insist that everyone sip the hot chocolate she prepares so faithfully each evening? Chabrol has fashioned a delectable mystery, dipped in darkest Swiss chocolate.
