Pink Floyd soundtracked More - Blu-ray/DVD dual format editionBarbet Schroeder created a sensation when his controversial first feature More, boosted by Pink Floyd's involvement, opened in 1969, and it quickly became a cult classic. Coming to Blu-ray for the first time on September 19th 2011, it is released by the BFI in the UK, in a Dual Format Edition (a DVD is included in the case) along with a newly commissioned documentary on the story behind it.

The synopsis of the film is as follows: "With his exams a distant memory, German student Stefan (Klaus Grünberg) burns his bridges and hitchhikes across Europe in pursuit of adventure and the warm southern sun. Seduced by the offbeat crowd he encounters in Paris – among them the shyly seductive Estelle (Mimsy Farmer) – Stefan is soon flying dangerously close to disaster." The film is famous for its subdued, moody Pink Floyd soundtrack, featuring some of their most loved songs from that era, including Green is the Colour, Cymbaline and The Nile Song.

The release is presented in both High and Standard Definition, and features a Director-approved High Def transfer from original film elements. There's also Making More (2011, 17 mins, DVD only), a newly commissioned documentary on the story behind the film, theatrical trailers for Schroeder's More, 1972's The Valley (which also has a Floyd soundtrack) and 1975's Maîtresse, and the package is completed with an illustrated booklet with new essays, biographies and notes on the soundtrack.

You can place your order for this keenly anticipated release through Amazon UK for delivery on release.
