Ingmar Bergman’s early masterpiece, a wrenching battle of the sexes, in a new 2K restoration Ingmar Bergman (The Seventh Seal) presents the battle of the sexes as a ramshackle, grotesque carnival of humiliation in Sawdust and Tinsel, one of the master’s most vivid early works and his first of many collaborations with the great cinematographer Sven Nykvist (Persona). The story of the charged relationship between a turn‐of‐thetwentieth‐ century circus owner (A Lesson in Love’s Åke Grönberg) and his younger mistress (Harriet Andersson), a horseback rider in the traveling show, the film features dreamlike detours and twisted psychosexual power plays, making for a piercingly brilliant depiction of physical and spiritual degradation. SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES: New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Audio commentary by Ingmar Bergman scholar Peter Cowie Introduction by Bergman from 2003 PLUS: An essay by critic John Simon
Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov’s follow-up to The Lesson is a social parable about a humble man who gets unwillingly promoted, and ends up sacrificed. Bearded railway linesman Tsanko Petrov (Stefan Denolyubov) discovers millions of lev on the train tracks. When he reports the money rather than pocketing it, his co-workers label him the “fool of the nation,” but the Ministry of Transport—currently embroiled in a scandal—takes the opportunity to parade their new hero. Little do they know that Tsanko is a loser who suffers from a debilitating stutter and might not be the best exemplar of Bulgarian honesty and responsibility on TV. But compared to the intense and driven Julia Staikov (the amazing Margita Gosheva), he’s an angel sent from heaven. When Julia removes his watch—the titular Glory, inscribed and presented to him by his father—for the ceremony to present him with an improved digital model, it sets off a chain of events that threatens to bring down the Ministry thanks to a combination of corruption, irresponsibility and arrogance.
Der Name des Alexander History Lesson MK2 ist Programm: dieses Pedal ermöglicht eine Zeitreise durch die Geschichte der Delay Effekte. Es stehen 3 Grundsounds zur Verfügung: 1963 - das klassische, warme und runde Tape Delay Sound mit den charakteristischen dumpfer werdenden Echowiederholungen. Die typischen Gleichlaufschwankungen lassen sich mit dem Mod Poti authentisch simulieren. 1974 - die Geburtsstunde der analogen Eimerketten Delays, auch hier werden die Echowiederholungen dumpfer, bei aufgedrehtem Feedback Regler lassen sich coole "Space Ship" Sounds erzeugen. Der dritte Kandidat ist das mit 1984 benannte Digital Delay - Anfang der 80er das ganz coole, angesagte Hightech Equipment. Die Echowiederholungen sind klar und brilliant - kein begrenzter Frequenzgang mehr, ideal für getimte Echosounds a' la U2. Mit dem Mod Poti können auch schwebende Chorus Sounds erzeugt werden. Der gebufferte Bypass läßt sich auf Trais Mode umschalten - die Echowiederholungen klingen im Bypass Betrieb aus. · Vintage Delay · Effekt-Typ: Delay · Bauart: Digital · Mono/Stereo: Mono In, Dry+Fx Out · Regler: Time, Feedback, Mix, Mod · Modes: 3 Delaytypen · Schalter: 1963/1974/1984 · Bypass Modus: Buffered Bypass · Stromversorgung: 9 VDC, Center negative · Stromverbrauch: 60 mA · Batteriebetrieb: nicht möglich · Gehäuseformat: Standard · Abmessungen (BxHxT/cm): 6,6 x 5,4 x 12,1 · Boutique Effekt: ja · Produktionsland: USA · Analog Dry Signal Output · Tap Effektgerät E-Gitarre

Just When Does the Necessary Lesson Itself Become the Very Reason for the Necessity of the Next? When the phone rings unexpectedly one afternoon, Joey's guardians wouldn't possibly presume that their innocent darling is catching the attention of his teacher for all the wrong reasons - again. Not when they've addressed the issue of his natural, growing curiosities about the opposite sex so straightforwardly, his maternal influence guiding him through His First Lesson so skillfully with her gentle, hands-on approach. But the school principal is forced to phone Joey's parents yet again. This time, Joey's focus is completely on his teacher... but not at all on what she's trying to teach him. Joey's one curiosity has led to another; and, just like the first, it demands immediate attention. And so, the line between lesson and real-life experience continues to blur. It's time to teach Joey that his latest habit of classroom disruption is inappropriate... by distracting him with a new lesson in the anatomy of the opposite sex. Her at-home, firsthand approach worked so well the first time, so it must be the best way to teach Joey something new. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Me.
