Philadelphia, PA - Breaking Glass Pictures and QC Cinema
are proud to announce the February 19th DVD Release of festival
favorite Our Paradise (released internationally as Notre
Paradis, SRP $24.99). The French-language thriller is the
latest film from auteur Gaël Morel, following his hit classics Full Speed,
Three Dancing Slaves and Apres Lui with Catherine Deneuve.
Our Paradise reunites Morel with actors Stéphane Rideau (Wild
Reeds, Three Dancing Slaves) and Béatrice Dalle (Betty Blue, New
Wave) and debuts rising star Dimitri Durdaine.
Vassili (Rideau), an aging
pickpocket and prostitute, finds a young, unconscious man (Durdaine) in a
notorious Parisian cruising ground and takes him home to nurse his wounds. The
two men discover a connection and become lovers and accomplices. They
work together as prostitutes and take up the habit of fleecing their clients one
by one. But, little by little, the net tightens around them as Vassili's violent
past comes back to haunt him. After being threatened with reprisals, the couple
must abruptly flee Paris in hope of finding a place where they can be happy and
content forever. But can they truly escape their inner demons?
From the producer of David
Cronenberg's Cosmopolis starring Robert Pattinson, Our
Paradise has been released around the world, with critical accolades from
all corners. The film has screened to audience acclaim at QFest, Frameline,
Outfest, Toronto Inside Out, and the Melbourne Queer Film Festival.
