Criterion has announced its latest classic for Blu-ray, setting a late-March release for Francois Truffaut's 'The 400 Blows.'
The coming-of-age classic, which is largely cited as ground zero for the French Nouvelle Vague, will receive its high-def premiere on March 24.
Tech specs will feature BD-50 dual-layer presentation with remastered 1080p video and the original French soundtrack in uncompressed PCM 1.0 Mono (with optional English subtitles).
Supplements include a pair of audio commentaries (one by cinema professor Brian Stonehill, another by François Truffaut’s lifelong friend Robert Lachenay), rare audition and newsreel footage, a TV excerpt and interview with Truffaut, an essay by film scholar Annette Insdorf, and the theatrical trailer.
Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.
