Read Merlin Harries's film review of Funeral Parade Of Roses

The picture has transferred to DVD with a grainy after-taste that is ultimately in keeping with the overall feel of the film. The tones and subtext are all heightened by the image so a good result all round.

The recent UK release features a full audio commentary and documentary feature with the director Toshio Matsumoto which give a truly rare insight into the mind behind this bizarre yet enticing picture.
