Eureka Entertainment to release CURE (Kyua), Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s mesmerising and hypnotic psychological thriller, on home video for the first time in the UK on 23 April 2018 as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in a Dual Format edition featuring a Limited Edition O-card (First 2000 copies only).

Released to critical acclaim in both the East and the West, “Cure” was a breakthrough film for director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, a nerve shredding thriller about the hunt for a serial killer in a bleak and decaying Tokyo.

A series of murders have been committed by ordinary people who claim to have had no control over their horrifying actions. Following the only link – a mysterious stranger who had brief contact with each perpetrator and their victim – detective Kenichi Takabe (Kôji Yakusho, “13 Assassins”, “Tokyo Sonata”) places his own sanity on the line as he tries to end the wave of inexplicable terror.

Described as one of the greatest films of all time by Bong Joon-ho (“The Host”, “Snowpiercer”), “Cure” is a deeply unsettling masterpiece of its genre, and has shockingly been unavailable on home video in the UK until now. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present “Cure” in a special Dual Format edition.

On paper I am an Italian living in London, in reality I was born and bread in a popcorn bucket. I've loved cinema since I was a little child and I’ve always had a passion and interest for Asian (especially Japanese) pop culture, food and traditions, but on the cinema side, my big, first love is Hong Kong Cinema. Then - by a sort of osmosis - I have expanded my love and appreciation to the cinematography of other Asian countries. I like action, heroic bloodshed, wu-xia, Shaw Bros (even if it’s not my specialty), Anime, and also more auteur-ish movies. Anything that is good, really, but I am allergic to rom-com (unless it’s a HK rom-com, possibly featuring Andy Lau in his 20s)"
