Blu-ray Says 'Farewell'

Posted Tue Mar 29, 2011 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The French spy thriller also known as 'L'Affaire Farewell' will infiltrate Blu-ray in April!

In an early announcement to retailers, NeoClassics will release 'Farewell' on Blu-ray on April 19.

'Farewell' is the riveting true story of a KGB colonel who, disenchanted with what the Communist ideal has become under Leonid Brezhnev, gives top-secret documents to a French businessman working in Russia, helping to hasten the end of the Cold War. He didn’t do this for money, but rather that a new world might dawn for his fellow Russians, but especially for his son.

Based on the book Bonjour Farewell by Serguei Kostine, the film, directed by Christian Carion (Academy Award® nominated 'Joyeux Noel'), boasts a strong international cast starring two noted film directors who are also respected actors, Guillaume Canet ('The Beach;' 'Merry Christmas,' 'Tell No One') and Emir Kusturica ('The Good Thief,' 'Underground,' 'Arizona Dream'). The ensemble also includes Alexandra Maria Lara, Ingeborda Dapkunaite, Diane Kruger, Willem Dafoe, Fred Ward and David Soul.

Specs and supplements have yet to be detailed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98.
