Kris McManus' DEAD IN FRANCE Coming to DVD, 3/26
DEAD IN FRANCE, Breaking Glass Pictures
Breaking Glass Pictures is bringing Dead in France, the UK black and white noir comedy from Delacheroy Films, to home video this spring. The film is currently available to rent OnDemand and will be available nationwide on March 26 (SRP $24.99). Directed by Kris McManus and written by star Brian Levine, Dead in France has been a festival hit across the globe, including three wins at the 2012 Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood: Best Feature Film, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor. The Hollywood Reporter called the film a "gore-drenched black comedy" during its theatrical run.
Socially-challenged hit man Charles lives in Cannes and would like to retire with a yacht and a woman in tow despite the fact that he has absolutely no experience with either, at least until he meets his newly-hired cleaning woman, Lisa. Lisa is as beautiful as she is conniving and her boyfriend Denny is even worse. Charles doesn't account for Denny and his cohorts stealing two million quid from his car. Follow Charles along his hunt for the trio down the beautiful Cote d'Azur. Along the way, his rival Clancy, who is furious by Charles' decision to retire, has marked him for death.
Movie Farm hailed Dead in France as "a heady mix of high-style and British irreverance as all manners of characters set out to ruin a hitman's retirement in this charmingly offensive black comedy."
Dead in France will come complete with deleted scenes and a gag reel. Good Film Guide called it "a class act" and went on to describe it as "a very stylish, darkly comic thriller that thoroughly entertains."
