French Drama ‘Hold Me Tight’ Coming to Digital Retailers, DVD and Blu-ray Disc Nov. 22

The French woman-in-crisis drama Hold Me Tight, from director Mathieu Amalric, will be released to home audiences in November by Kino Lorber.

The 2021 film will be available to buy or rent digitally on Kino Now on Nov. 8 and will be released on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and all major digital platforms two weeks later, on Nov. 22.

The DVD will carry a suggested retail price of $19.95, with the Blu-ray Disc retailing for $29.95.

The film is in French and German, with English subtitles.

In Hold Me Tight, Vicky Krieps stars as Clarisse, a woman on the run from her family for reasons that aren’t immediately clear. Widely renowned as one of France’s great contemporary actors but less well-known in North America for his equally impressive work behind the camera, Amalric’s sixth feature as director is considered his most ambitious to date. The film alternates between Clarisse’s adventures on the road and scenes of her abandoned husband Marc (Arieh Worthalter) as he struggles to take care of their children at home. 

Bonus features include an audio commentary by director Amalric (in French, with English subtitles); an interview with Krieps and Amalric; photo galleries; and a Q&A with Krieps and Amalric at the Angelika Film Center.
