    Full press release for the Eureka Blu-ray.

    The cinematic masterpiece and movie adaptation of Jerzy Kosinski's controversial novel

    [For immediate release] Eureka Entertainment to release THE PAINTED BIRD on Blu-ray as a part of the Montage Pictures range from 16 November 2020. The Blu-ray will include the feature-length documentary 11 COLOURS OF THE BIRD, a behind-the-scenes look at the incredible 11-year process it took director Ví¡clav Marhoul to create the film version of Jerzy KosiÅ„ski's controversial novel. The first print run of 1000 copies will include a Limited-edition O-card Slipcase and Collector's Booklet.

    Featuring a staggering central performance from the young Petr Kotlí¡r alongside a star-studded international ensemble including Udo Kier, Stellan Skarsgí¥rd, Harvey Keitel, Julian Sands and Barry Pepper. The Painted Bird has won ecstatic acclaim, with The Guardian's Xan Brooks describing the film as “a monumental piece of work” rewarding the film with a five-star review.

    The film follows the journey of a boy, entrusted by his Jewish parents to an elderly foster mother in an effort to escape persecution. Following a tragedy, the boy is on his own. Wandering through the desecrated countryside, the boy encounters villagers and soldiers whose own lives have been brutally altered, and who are intent on revisiting this brutality on the boy. When the war ends, the boy has been changed, forever.

    Shot in crisp black and white 35mm - Ví¡clav Marhoul's The Painted Bird does far more than simply depict the horror of war. It is an unflinching examination of the very worst of humanity.
