Posted Mon Nov 19, 2012 at 10:00 AM PST by

The acclaimed 2011 Belgian film is planned for Blu-ray this February.

In an early announcement to retailers, the Criterion Collection is working on 'The Kid with a Bike' for Blu-ray on February 12.

Spare and unsentimental but deeply imbued with a heart-rending tenderness, 'The Kid with a Bike' is an arresting work from the great Belgian directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, masters of the empathetic action film.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Conversation between film critic Kent Jones and directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne; Interviews with actors Cécile de France and Thomas Doret; Return to Seraing, a half-hour documentary in which the Dardennes revisit five locations from the film; Trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic Geoff Andrew.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
