Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas) (R1) in November

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas) for 14th November 2006 priced at $26.96 SRP. Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas) is based on a true story, which happened on Christmas Eve 1914 during the First World War. When a German tenor-turned-soldier and his partner, a beautiful Dutch soprano, brave the front lines to bring Christmas music to the troops, their songs are heard by enemy French and English forces in nearby trenches. Touched by the familiar melodies and emboldened by loneliness, the soldiers declare a momentary truce and come forward to greet each other. They spend a memorable evening – exchanging stories, chocolates and cigarettes. The truce gives them the opportunity to bury their dead, play a game of soccer and celebrate a Christmas Mass together. The next morning, they will once again be enemies but with a much greater understanding of the men they are fighting.

This 2005 Best Foreign Film Academy Award® nominee comes to DVD with the following features:

  • 2.40:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
  • French & English DD5.1 Surround
  • English, Portuguese & Spanish subtitles
  • Audio commentary by writer/director Christian Carion
