Nikita - Seasons 1-4

zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Season 1 In this sexy and suspenseful series, NIKITA has gone rogue. Division is an ultra-secret government agency whose operatives are recruited young people with severed ties to family, friends and society. Trained to be invisible assassins, no one ever leaves Division -- except the charming and deadly Nikita, who has managed to escape, making it her mission to undermine the now-corrupt organization. A force to be reckoned with, the rogue Nikita taunts Division, staying on their radar, but always one step ahead. Season 2 In the previous season of this suspenseful series featuring international action star Maggie Q, the charming and deadly Nikita waged a war against Division, the agency that created her. Michael – the man who trained her, a man she trusted – was hunting her. But Nikita had an ace up her sleeve: Alex, a girl she trained to infiltrate this secret unit of the government. At the end of Season One, Nikita and Alex's relationship has been shattered, and Nikita and Michael's relationship has been restored. Season 3 In a game-changing turnaround, Nikita, Michael and CIA analyst Ryan Fletcher are heading Division, and have been tasked by the U.S. president to clean up after the previous regime. With punk hacker Seymour hardwired to the cause, Alex in the fold, and Owen back from a Russian prison, the new team has all the tech, muscle and spy power they need to round up the Dirty Thirty, rogue assassins who remain at large around the globe. But Amanda has Division in her crosshairs, the Oval Office wants the job done yesterday, and the operation suffers devastating physical hits. Season 4 Framed for assassinating the U.S. president at the end of Season Three, Nikita is the world’s most wanted woman…alone, on the run and trying to clear her name. When she unexpectedly reunites with her old team – ex-fiancé and mentor Michael, former protégé Alex, tech genius Seymour Birkhoff and ex-CIA analyst Ryan Fletcher – they struggle to heal past betrayals while attempting to take down their nemesis Amanda, discovering in the process a vast conspiracy that threatens a global catastrophe. With wild card Sam back on the scene, emotions run high and counterespionage runs deep as Nikita battles to be true to her mission, the people she loves, and herself in the heart-pounding final episodes of this killer espionage series.

Mr Nice
Unser Tipp
8,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

The true story of a man who stumbled into a lucrative career as one of Europe's biggest drug dealers comes to the screen in this comedy-drama. Howard Marks (Rhys Ifans) was a young Welshman studying at Oxford when he discovered there was something unusual about his dorm room -- it had a secret passageway that led to a storage space used by one of the school's top marijuana dealers. Marks and the dealer struck up a friendship as he became an enthusiastic customer, and a few years later, when plans to bring a large cache of hashish into England via Germany went haywire, Marks stepped in to help and was introduced to a circle of big league marijuana traffickers. Marks quit his job as a teacher to become a full time drug wholesaler, and while his new career cost him his first marriage, it introduced him to Judy (Chloe Sevigny), a lovely woman who became the love of his life. As Marks' business grew, he gained some interesting new associates, including an Irish Republican Army operative (David Thewlis) who knew how to get past customs agents, an intelligence agent (Christian McKay) working on both sides of the law and a wildly eccentric American marijuana kingpin (Crispin Glover). Mr. Nice was adapted from the autobiography by the real-life Howard Marks; Marks is good friends with Rhys Ifans, who was cast to play him in the film.

The Complete Doctor Collection
Empfehlung
17,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

A box set of all seven of the 'Doctor' films. In 'Doctor in the House' (1954) junior doctor Simon Sparrow (Dirk Bogarde) gains a position at St Swithin's Hospital in London and ends up sharing 'digs' with a bunch of slightly older young medics, all of whom have failed the previous year on account of their inability to keep to the curriculum. Sparrow tries to find a balance between the antics of his new peers and the ever-terrifying Sir Lancelot Spratt, chief surgeon at St Swithin's and a man on the lookout for miscreant doctors wherever they may be. Menaced by the advances of his landlady's daughter, and feelings for one of the nurses, will Sparrow be able to qualify? In 'Doctor at Sea' (1955) Sparrow (Bogarde) becomes a ship's doctor on a sea-going freighter, runs into trouble with the Captain and performs an impromptu appendix operation. Brigitte Bardot appears, in her first British film role, as the love interest. 'Doctor at Large' (1957) Sparrow (Bogarde) is a qualified doctor and working in Casualty. However, when he is rather rude to a very important patient he is fired. Sparrow soon gets another job but finds that, despite the perks of constant attentive females, he still yearns to become a surgeon. Can he succeed? 'Doctor in Love' (1960) sees Michael Craig starring as Dr Richard Hare (taking over from Bogarde's lead role of Simon Sparrow). Hare finds himself a patient at his own hospital and falls for the charms of Nurse Nightingale (Moira Redmond)... and then Dr Barrington (Virginia Maskell). 'Doctor in Distress' (1963) sees Dirk Bogarde returning as the young doctor Simon Sparrow, and finds himself trying to manage Sir Lancelot Spratt's love life. However, this puts pressure on Sparrow's own relationship with a young pysiotherapist (Samantha Eggar). 'Doctor in Clover' (1966) focuses on the character of Gaston Grimsdyke (Leslie Phillips). A chance meeting with Sir Lancelot Spratt leads the young doctor to a position in a new hospital, which eventually leads to chaos. In the final film 'Doctor in Trouble' (1970) troubles befall Dr Burke (Leslie Phillips) when he stows away on an ocean liner and poses as a female photographer. Once more the young doctor runs into the authorative figure of a Spratt, but this time it is Sir Lancelot's brother Captain Spratt (Robert Morley).

Danny Reed (Martin Freeman) is directionless and dissatisfied with his lot in life. Working at a DIY superstore, he vents his frustrations on the customers, when not pining for his co-worker Fiona (Angela Griffin) or foisting his encyclopedic knowledge of useless information onto loyal friend Pete (Marshall Lancaster). He really is a world away from the successful, vivacious Veronica (Rachael Stirling), whose job as a glamorous fashion journalist provides her with a well-stocked bank account and an even better stocked social calendar. Worshipped by her devoted boyfriend Jay (Paterson Joseph), Veronica seems to have it all. So when a freak accident traps the mismatched strangers in each others bodies the results aren't pretty, but they are hilarious.BOY MEETS GIRL is a sharp, witty comedy-drama from the pen of new writing talent David Allison. The four-part series invests the fantastical gender-swap scenario with a surprising creditability thanks, in large part, to the central performances of Freeman and Stirling. As Danny and Veronica struggle with their new identities they begin to discover new truths about themselves. But besides learning to walk in high heels or being forced to 'slum it' with the working classes, the pair long to get back to their own bodies and ultimately, their old lives... getting someone to believe them, however, is only hurdle number one!

Eureka Entertainment to release SHOAH: THE FOUR SISTERS, a powerful and poignant 4-part documentary from Claude Lanzmann, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in DVD & Blu-ray editions from 18 February 2019. Paula Biren, Ruth Elias, Ada Lichtman, Hanna Marton: Four Jewish women, witnesses and survivors of the most insane and pitiless barbarism, and who, for that reason alone, but for many others also, deserve to be inscribed forever into the memory of humankind. What they have in common, beside the specific horrors to which each of them were subjected, is a searingly sharp, almost-physical intelligence, which rejects all pretence or faulty reasoning. In a word, idealism. Filmed by Claude Lanzmann during the preparation of what would become Shoah, each of these four extraordinary women deserved a film in their own right, to fully illustrate their exceptional fibre, and to reveal through their gripping accounts four little-known chapters of the extermination. THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH Ruth Elias was seventeen when the Nazis invaded her native city of Moravska Ostrava, Czechoslovakia where her prosperous family had lived for generations. In April 1942, all were deported to the Theresienstadt ghetto. Elias’s parents and sister were deported to Auschwitz and soon murdered, but she was able to remain behind by marrying her boyfriend. By the winter of 1943 she became pregnant, a grave danger since pregnant women were targeted for deportation and Nazi regulations made it impossible to secure an abortion. She was sent to Auschwitz in the Fall of 1943. Interned in the infamous Czech Family Camp in Section B II B at Birkenau, she lived only a few hundred meters from a gas chamber and crematorium complex. When her pregnancy was finally recognized, she was placed under the care of the infamous Josef Mengele, who subjected her to a most cruel medical ordeal, forcing Elias to make the hardest possible decision a mother could face. THE MERRY FLEA On the very day Germany invaded Poland in September, 1939, all the men in Ada Lichtman’s town of Wieliczka were rounded up by the SS, taken to a forest and shot. One of them was Lichtman’s father, a cobbler. From then on, she was possessed by a single question: “how will I be killed?” Every day, the Germans selected more victims for execution; the survivors of these massacres, including Ada and her first husband, were driven from village to village to perform forced labour. Eventually those still alive were deported in cattle cars to the extermination camp at Sobibor where more than 250,000 Jews from across Europe would be gassed. Among only three women selected for work in the camp, Lichtman washed laundry and repaired dolls taken from Jewish children for export to Germany. The dolls forever evoked memories of this travesty. NOAH’S ARK Hanna Marton was the wife of a professor who worked with Rezsö (Rudolf) Kasztner, the head of Aid and Rescue Committee for Jewish refugees in Hungary. Once the Nazis occupied Hungary in the Spring of 1944 and began to deport thousands of Jews every day to Auschwitz-Birkenau, Kasztner negotiated with Adolf Eichmann for the release of 1,684 Jews in exchange for $1,000 per person. After an odyssey by train through the collapsing Reich, most reached safety in Switzerland. Although Kasztner had saved the largest number of Jews during the Holocaust, his plan scandalized many, because Kasztner had selected many of his family and friends, including Hanna and her husband, as well as those he deemed essential for the future of Zionism, to board the rescue train. Nearly 450,000 Hungarian Jews subsequently died in the gas chambers of Birkenau while the Martons survived. Hanna Marton remained acutely aware that her survival was purchased at the expense of countless others who died. Offered an opportunity to escape, she had taken it, though her sense of guilt about having been among the privileged in Kastner’s convoy is deeply felt during her relentlessly painful account. BAŁUTY Bałuty is the name of a slum district in the Polish city of Lodz that the Nazis designated in 1940 as the ghetto for the large Jewish population of the city. The Nazi-appointed president of the Jewish council of elders, Chaim Mordechai Rumkowski, decided that part of the community would serve the Germans as a slave labour force. His strategy may have postponed the destruction of the ghetto, but nearly 45,000 Jews died of starvation and disease in Lodz. Paula Biren was just seventeen when she was forced to move with her family into the ghetto in 1940. Upon her graduation and in need of a job to avoid being deported, Biren accepted an administrative position with Rumkowski’s Jewish women’s police force. It was only after she realized her complicity in sending black marketeers to their deaths that she quit. Biren remained in the ghetto until August of 1944 when the Germans deported everyone, including Rumkowski, to camps. Her mother and sister were gassed upon arrival in Auschwitz, and her father died shortly Features: All four interviews presented across two discs Optional English subtitles PLUS: A booklet featuring new writing
