Brink of Life (Nara livet) (Directors Suite)R4

Brink of Life was released in Region 2 in the United Kingdom as part of a series of early Bergman films in a box set entitled, Early Masterpieces by Ingmar Bergman. The films included are Dreams, Sawdust and Tinsel, It Rains on Our Love, Brink of Life and A Ship Bound for India. Also included are a pair of documentaries about the actors and actresses who worked with Bergman during his career entitled, The Women and Bergman and The Men and Bergman. Unfortunately, this box set is extremely hard to find, both for sale and for reference purposes. Even Artificial Eye's website does not currently list it. A Region 2 Scandinavian release has no extras but it does include English subtitles. As Madman's Directors Suite label has now released all five of the films included in the Artificial Eye box set, it would be reasonable to assert that the Madman releases have been licensed from Artificial Eye's transfers. Therefore, if you wish to purchase this film on DVD, as was the case with the Region 4 version of It Rains on Our Love, there's no reason to look beyond the Madman Directors Suite release.
