The folks at Cohen Media are doing a good job getting foreign classics and festival favorites out there for the home video market. Here's a couple of their recent offerings:
The Artist and the Model (2013) ✭✭✭✭ 1/2
His idleness ends one day when his wife (Claudia Cardinale) befriends Mercè (Aida Folch) a scruffy young refugee from Franco’s Spain. The homeless Mercè is persuaded to pose for Cros, and over the course of a magical summer the aging sculptor rekindles his creative fires, along with other passions he had assumed were long dead. Directed with an ethereal finesse by Fernando Trueba (Chico y Rita, Belle Epoch) The Artist and the Model casts a spell that evokes deep memories and blissful emotions and, despite the backdrop of war’s savagery, draws a closer connection between humanity and the divine.
