PR Hotel Terminus: The Life And Times Of Klaus Barbie on DVD Oct 26

Icarus Films

Barbie, while Gestapo chief in Lyon, tortured and murdered resistance fighters, innocent hostages, Jewish men, women and children, and had thousands deported to death camps.

For the first time ever on DVD from the director of "The Sorrow And The Pity"

Marcel Ophuls' Academy Award-winner for Best Documentary

Hotel Terminus: The Life And Times Of Klaus Barbie



Street Date: October 26, 2010 Marcel Ophuls' epic documentary, Hotel Terminus: The Life And Times Of Klaus Barbie, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 1988, followed by an American premiere at the New York Film Festival, where it was hailed by Vincent Canby in The New York Times as "Another monumental Ophuls work,Hotel Terminus emerges ultimately not as a study of one person, place or event, but as a contemplation of the human condition."

The film went on to enjoy a successful theatrcal release (by Samuel Goldwyn) and in early 1989 it was duly honored by winning the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature of 1988 (the only film by Marcel Ophuls to win the award).

A VHS edition of the film was released to the home video market by Goldwyn, and later by MGM. But, until now, the film has never been available on DVD anywhere in the world.

An examination of the Nazi SS officer Klaus Barbie, the infamous "Butcher of Lyon", Hotel Terminus weaves together forty years of footage and interviews culled from over 120 hours of discussion with former Nazis, American intelligence officers, South American government officials, victims of Nazi atrocities and witnesses. Barbie, while Gestapo chief in Lyon, tortured and murdered resistance fighters, innocent hostages, Jewish men, women and children, and had thousands deported to death camps.

After the war he was protected by and worked with the U.S. Army and American intelligence officers, and then allowed to hide in Bolivia, where he lived peacefully for 30 years. Only in 1987 was he brought to trial in a French courtroom (in Lyon).

Icarus Films is proud to be able to announce this important first ever DVD release of this remarkable and essential documentary.

"A real-life detective story. Entertaining and engrossing." –Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

"Two Thumbs Up. A shocking, unforgettable film." –Siskel & Ebert
