THE TRIPLE ECHO
(Michael Apted, 1972)
Release date: 18 March 2019
Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)
Michael Apted made his feature-film debut with this distinctive drama based on the novella of the same name by H E Bates. Reuniting Glenda Jackson with her Women in Love co-star Oliver Reed, the film also stars a young Brian Deacon (Vampyres, A Zed & Two Noughts).
When a young soldier (Deacon) deserts his outfit and hides in a remote farm, the farm owner (Jackson) and he fall in love. But their idyll is shattered by the arrival of a boorish, violent army sergeant (Reed) searching for his AWOL recruit.
Unconventional and superbly played, The Triple Echo is one of the finest British films of the 1970s. Long overlooked and unjustly neglected, this powerful drama is now ripe for rediscovery, and is presented in a brand new 2K restoration from the film’s newly rediscovered original negative.

Great that they’re initiating their own restorations, as not all of the intriguing movies - in particular, British - Indicator have had access to have benefited from state of the art restoration jobs. I’m very glad to see them take on this responsibility, and for the company to develop.
