Posted Mon Jun 3, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

René Clément's 1947 French submarine drama is setting its course for Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Cohen Film Collection is preparing 'Les maudits' for Blu-ray on August 13.

Oslo, April 19th 1945, as the Third Reich is living its last day, a group of Nazis and sympathizers (a Wehrmacht general, an SS leader and his "assistant", an Italian industrialist and his wife who is also the general's lover, a French collaborator) board a submarine that will take them to South America, where they hope to find shelter. While they sail off the shores of liberated Royan they manage to kidnap a French doctor to have him look after a wounded passenger. Dr Guilbert will be forced to share the restricted space of the submarine with the fugitives. The atmosphere soon becomes unbreathable...

Specs, supplements, and a suggested list price for the Blu-ray have not yet been revealed.
