  Indochine on Blu-ray and DVD
  Deneuve out East
  Following its official selection to play as part of this year’s Cannes Classics strand, STUDIOCANAL is pleased to announce that a newly restored version of the multi award winning French drama, INDOCHINE, will be released on DVD, BD and EST on January 2. This marks the first time that the film which, on its original release, won five Ce´sar Awards, an Oscar® and a Golden Globe (both for Best Foreign Film), will be available to own in its fully restored version. Screenings of the film will take place at Cine´ Lumie`re in December and January.

Featuring an Oscar® nominated performance from Catherine Deneuve (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Dancer in the Dark, Belle de Jour) alongside Vincent Perez (Cyrano de Bergerac, The Crow: City of Angels), Jean Yanne (We Won't Grow Old Together, Weekend) and Linh Dan Pham (Mr. Nobody, The Beat that My Heart Skipped), INDOCHINE is set in 1930 at the tail end of French colonial rule in Indochina and tells the story of a widowed French woman (Deneuve) who raises a Vietnamese princess (Linh Dan Pham) as if she was her own daughter.

Indochina: 1930. Alongside her father Emile, Eliane Devries determinedly runs a rubber plantation. The only emotional attachment she has is to her adopted daughter Camille, an orphaned Annamite princess. Their existence is turned upside down upon meeting Jean-Baptiste, a young French naval officer with whom both Eliane and then Camille fall in love. Protected by her friend Guy Asselin, the head of the French security services, Eliane is able to face another worrying element: the rise of native nationalism and the first attacks mounted against the French. Although Eliane becomes detached from Jean-Baptiste, Camille still loves him despite her arranged marriage to her cousin Tanh. She flees the colonists and crosses the whole country, heading north, witnessing the misfortunes of her people under colonial oppression, and finally reaches Dragon Islet in Ha? Long Bay where Jean-Baptiste has been transferred. What will be the lovers' fate?
