Kino Lorber Nov. 1 will release a double feature of romantic classics by French director Patrice Leconte, Felix and Lola and Love Street, on Blu-ray Disc.
Released under the Cohen Film Collection banner, the disc carries a suggested retail price (SRP) of $29.95.
The two films will also be available digitally Nov. 1 on the Kino Now website.
Both come in French with English subtitles.
In Felix and Lola (2001), bumper car operator Felix (Philippe Torreton) falls in love with Lola (Charlotte Gainsbourg) one night as she rides the cars round and round, alone. He’s touched by the sadness in her eyes. When she vanishes, he discovers that she’s tied to a mysterious past — a past that he will have to confront.
Love Street (2002) is set in 1945 Paris, where the Oriental Palace brothel is about to be closed down. Marion (Laetitia Casta) is one of the Palace’s prostitutes, but she dreams of a singing career. Petit Louis (Patrick Timsit) was raised in brothels and is the Palace’s handyman. He is madly in love with Marion, but knows she will never be his, so he tries to make her dreams of another life come true.
Both films come with audio commentary tracks by Wade Major, producer and host of the DigiGods podcast and film critic for CineGods.com and KPCC FilmWeek.
