BFI Flipside Bringing Voice Over to Blu-ray/DVD in October

The BFI will be adding another title to their Flipside imprint with the release of Voice Over in a Dual Format Edition (Blu-ray + DVD) on 22 October 2011 at an RRP of £19.99. The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p/24 high definition transfer with PCM mono audio (48k/16-bit).

Press Release:

BFI Flipside presents
Voice Over
A film by Christopher Monger Starring Ian McNeice
Unseen for decades, Christopher Monger’s controversial feature Voice Over is released by BFI Flipside in a new HD transfer, mastered from the only surviving print elements. Released in a Dual Format Edition (DVD & Blu- ray discs together), it also contains Monger’s rare experimental feature-length thriller, Repeater.
‘Fats’ Bannerman is enjoying success as the writer and presenter of Thus Engaged, a romantic radio serial about the lives and loves of a Regency heroine. But when grim reality violently intrudes into Fats’ life, his frail fantasies become unbalanced and his ability to separate fact from fiction breaks down, with devastating consequences.
Featuring a compelling central performance from the great British screen actor Ian McNeice (A Life Less Ordinary; Oliver Twist; Doctor Who), this controversial early film from the award-winning Hollywood filmmaker Christopher Monger (The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain and writer of the multi-award winning HBO production Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes) caused a sensation upon its original release, when its subject matter was attacked by feminist groups.

Voice Over, the 21st BFI Flipside title, is released alongside Little Malcolm (Stuart Cooper, 1974).

Special features:

Both films presented in High Definition and Standard Definition

  • Newly mastered, under the supervision of director of photography Roland Denning, from the best available archive materials
  • Repeater (Christopher Monger, 1979, 76 mins): deconstructed crime thriller, inspired by the French New Wave, in which a woman’s confession of murder is not as simple as it seems
  • 34-page illustrated booklet with newly commissioned essays, biographies, original promotional materials, and recollections by Christopher Monger and Ian McNeice
