Joris Ivens (w/Mannus Franken)

Regen (1929)



Joris Ivens captures Amsterdam in the rain with poetic simplicity. "Tough Ivens kept his camera within reach to film whenever it would rain, it rained so little that the film took much more time than anticipated"---Beeld en Geluid.

It is a box with 2 dvd-s - besides Regen, you'll fin Symphonie Diagoanle by Eggelink, Le Tempestaire by Epstein, Manhatta by Strand and Sheeler, Meninlontant by Kirsanoff, Brume d'Automne by Kirsanoff - all of them are masterpieces.

I have just bought it - I saw yesterday Regen.
