'Once Upon a Time in Anatolia' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Fri Mar 2, 2012 at 06:00 AM PST by

Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan's Grand Jury Prize winner at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival is planned for Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, Cinema Guild says 'Once Upon a Time in Anatolia' is planned for Blu-ray on June 24.

In the dead of night, a group of men – among them a police commissioner, a prosecutor, a doctor and a murder suspect – drive through the Anatolian countryside, the serpentine roads and rolling hills lit only by the lights of their cars. They are searching for a corpse, the victim of a brutal murder. The suspect, who claims he was drunk, can't remember where he buried the body. As night wears on, details about the murder emerge and the investigators' own secrets come to light. In the Anatolian steppes nothing is what it seems; and when the body is found, the real questions begin.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: The Making of Once Upon A Time in Anatolia Documentary (92 minutes), Interview with the director (24 minutes), Anatolia in Cannes: (48 minutes), Visual Essay by Haden Guest, Director of the Harvard Film Archive, theatrical trailer, and a booklet featuring an essay.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
