Default SHAM040: Viva - Official Announcement!

SHAM040: Viva



Shameless Screen Entertainment are back with a 70's-styled sexploitation parody that received 4 stars from Empire magazine

Barbi, a young 70s housewife abandoned by her husband, is lured into a world of unfamiliar sexual freedom, in this must-see film, Viva

".. all the sexual revolution mischief 1970s Los Angeles has to offer, Viva is a spot-on spoof of low-grade '60s/early '70s sexploitation pics… [the] production design is a triumph...cinematography heightens color to an eye-popping degree" - VARIETY

"Viva is a meticulously designed re-imagining of classy-minded '70's-era soft porn. Simply put, the movie pops with parodic joy - in the hoary double-entendres and presentational acting styles - and hotly lighted 35MM cinematography that evokes lounge music album covers and Playboy ads".- LOS ANGELES TIMES



Release Date: 11th November 2013
Special Features: Behind the scenes featurette with director, cast and crew + trailer park
Certificate: 18
Run Time: 120mins (approx.)
Year: 2007
Audio: English audio

Shameless Screen Entertainment's new upcoming release, VIVA will be available on DVD 11th November 2013. More details to follow soon...

Interesting...


Only released in 2007 so the most recent film released on the label so far. Anyone seen it?

I'm not aware of this one, either. Sounds good!

I can't remember much about the film, but I wanted to see when it was released so, as far as I'm concerned, this is a very welcome announcement.

Viva Trailer - YouTube


Hmmm...something about the delivery of it reminds me of Pervert! Which would not be a good thing.

I met the director when she came over and we had great hopes for the film when it came out here some years ago. The attention to detail in what they tried to pull off is brilliant and it's a very interesting film - could have been snappier was my thought but does sit in the mind.

From the trailer, the acting was better in Pervert (unless they're trying to act bad)

I quite like VIVA even if it is overly long and needs tightening up in places. The stylised acting, sets, costumes and lighting give it a very effective period feel. It's certainly worth a look.
