If "Blue is the hottest color" will be released on blu-ray, what about "nymphomaniac", which also has scenes of explicit sex? That was one of the questions that have spread through social networks since Imovision distributor announced on Monday that the company had refused to Sonopress pressing the disc. Sonopress confirmed to GLOBE, through its legal counsel, that "does not challenge the classification, not the product, but does not work when you have explicit sex scenes." However, California Films, distributor of Lars von Trier movie in Brazil - which makes replication (ie, copies) of all his films in partnership with Sonopress - has sent the material to the company and ensures arrival of DVD and blu-ray in the April 29 stores, with subsequent release of a box with full of two volumes, with more than five hours.
So far I have not been notified of any problem by Sonopress - Eusebius says Muñoz Jr., director of the California Film. - Despite ranking 18 and scenes of sex, is not a porn. It's an art film, award-winning, classic Lars von Trier. I'm not worried. If there is any problem with Sonopress future, we will find the best way to put it in stores to the public.
Junior munhoz also highlights the fact that in 2010 launched the blu-ray of "Antichrist" by Lars von Trier, the Sonopress and DVD by Videolar - the latter also told the GLOBE who refuses to make movies with explicit sex. Like "Blue is the hottest color", "Antichrist" features scenes of explicit sex.
With echoes generated by the appeal of Imovision on Facebook, companies working with blu-rays offered to help bring "Blue ..." the video stores and shops.
- Because of the impact, some companies offering called me to make the disk array. But this is not enough. Will I still need to find someone that replicates copies, since all we spoke refused to work our movie - says the president of Imovision, Jean Thomas Bernardini.
Sonopress Videolar and did not respond to request for interviews until the publication of this story. Microsoft and Disney, enterprises, according Sonopress, require their suppliers to not work with sexually explicit content, either.
