Radiance Films, an independent film distributor specializing in rare cinema, has announced the Blu-ray Disc debut of Jean-Denis Bonan’s A Woman Kills.
The French murder mystery will be released Feb. 7 as a limited-edition Blu-ray Disc at a suggested retail price (SRP) of $34.95.
Filmed during the French civil unrest of May 1968, A Woman Kills never found distribution due to controversy around the director’s first film. Producer Anatole Dauman was unable to find distribution for the film for 45 years until Luna Park Films brought it back to life in a new restoration.
The new wave-influenced serial killer film presents its narrative in an almost true crime approach yet focuses more on the psychological aspect with echoes of German Expressionism and Franju, set to a discordant, jazzy score.
The Blu-ray of A Woman Kills will feature a brand-new HD restoration of the feature, along with newly produced and archival bonus features.
