Luis Bunuel's acclaimed 1970 Spanish film starring Catherine Deneuve, Fernando Rey, and Franco Nero will be restored on Blu-ray this March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Entertainment One and Cohen Film Collection will be bringing 'Tristana' for Blu-ray on March 12.

When the young woman Tristana's mother dies, she is entrusted to the guardianship of the well-respected though old Don Lope. Don Lope is well-liked and well-known because of his honorable nature, despite his socialistic views about business and religion. But Don Lope's one weakness is women, and he falls for the innocent girl in his charge, seduces her, makes her his lover, though all the while explaining to her that she is as free as he. But when she acts on this freedom, Don Lope must deal with the consequences of his world-view.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.98.
