The 1983 modern French classic is heading to Blu-ray in November.
In an early announcement to retailers, Tanelorn Films will be releasing 'One Deadly Summer' on Blu-ray on November 17.
Isabelle Adjani (Queen Margot, Possession) stars in this Jean Becker (Children of the Marshland, Conversations with My Gardener) directed tale of misunderstanding, obsession, and madness. Elaine, a beautiful young women settles into a small town in the south of France with her introverted mother and physically handicapped father.
Traumatized by her knowledge that her mother was raped by three Italian immigrants before she was born, Elaine thinks she's on a trail of vengeance when she's courted by a young garage mechanic (Alain Souchon), whose father, now dead, was an Italian immigrant who owned a mechanical piano, the only clue to the identity of her mother's aggressors. But as the story unfolds in Rashomon-like flashbacks and narrations, the tale becomes increasingly complex and leads inexorably to a stunning conclusion.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a French LPCM Mono soundtrack, and supplements include: 1983 Cannes Film Festival Interview with Isabelle Adjani; Vintage Interview with Director Jean Becker; 2007 Interview with Director Jean Becker; Original; Theatrical Trailer; and Stills.
