DVD of film version encased in its own protective plastic sleeve and pasted on the back. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper by the Nissha Printing Company in Tokyo, Japan to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in an exquisite production, Sarah Moon's "Le Fil Rouge". The artist/photographer's evocative, gossamer, and luminous re-interpretation of Charles Perrault's "Bluebeard's Castle". This marks Sarah Moon's second homage to the great storyteller, whose tales are ultimately about our deepest fears (her first, "Little Red Riding Hood", is a late-modern art photography classic). Fairy tales have been a major source of inspiration for Sarah Moon throughout her career, and have resulted in some of the most eerily, disturbingly, and tragically beautiful photography books of our time. "Le Fil Rouge" revisits the terrifying Bluebeard tale, a re-telling in Medieval terms of nothing less than the Biblical fable of Adam and Eve: The loss of Innocence, the danger of Knowledge, and the fatal risk of defying God-The-Father. Children learn about wonder, shock, and cruelty through fairy tales. Sarah Moon creates haunting fairy tales for grown-ups, the fairy tale as omen. Moon also produced and directed a film version for this particular re-interpretation. Like her still images, the film adaptation has the pull of a dream. It is not an exaggeration to say that it recalls Ingmar Bergman ("Cries And Whispers" as well as "Fanny and Alexander") in its power and beauty. An absolute "must-have" title for Sarah Moon collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black-ink pen on the title page by Sarah Moon. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: The DVD is brand-new and must be viewed with the book for a complete experience. A rare signed copy thus. 45 plates, 1 DVD. Winner of The Grand Prize of the Bologna International Book Fair in 1983 for "Little Red Riding Hood", the only photographer ever to win the award. One of the finest artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SARAH MOON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 14041
