'The Artist and the Model' & 'You Will Be My Son' Blu-rays Announced

Posted Wed Nov 13, 2013 at 10:00 AM PST by

Two French dramas are heading to Blu-ray in February.

In an early announcement to retailers, Cohen Media Group is preparing 'The Artist and the Model' for Blu-ray on February 11 and 'You Will Be My Son' on February 25.

'The Artist and the Model' - Summer of 1943. In an occupied France, not far away from the Spanish border, a famous old sculptor who is tired of life and wars finds the desire to work on his last masterpiece when a beautiful young Spanish girl comes knocking after escaping a refugee camp in the South of France.

'You Will Be My Son' - Paul de Marseul ('Aretrup,' 'A Prophet') is the passionate, demanding proprietor of his prestigious family wine estate. But he has no faith in his son, Martin (Deutsch), who works at the vineyard. Paul dreams of a harder-working, successful son—a dream that one day seemingly materializes when he meets Philippe (Nicolas Bridet), the son of his dying estate manager (Chesnais). Can Paul turn against his own blood and turn Philippe into the rightful heir of his family estate? Shot on location in the French region of Saint Emilion at the Chateau Clos Fourtet, 'You Will Be My Son' deeply explores the meaning of work, love, and family.

Supplements and suggested list prices have not been announced, but the Blu-rays will feature 1080p video and a French DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack.
