Blu-ray box set Lubitsch in Berlin from Masters of Cinema in September

25 July 2017

Eureka Entertainment are to release Lubitsch in Berlin, a six-film box set of invaluable films by Germany’s first great director, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in a definitive Blu-ray edition in September.

Before he arrived in Hollywood to leave his indelible (and inimitable) mark on timeless comedies like Trouble in Paradise and The Shop Around The Corner, Ernst Lubitsch created an expansive body of work in Germany that proved to be as varied in tone as it was sophisticated in its measure of man and woman.

This set collects six restored works from the silent phase of Lubitsch’s career, and casts new light on the director both as a fully-formed comic master, and as a virtuoso of cinematographic technique.

“The six in this invaluable box-set show the extraordinary range of his work” – The Guardian
