Vinyan (R2/UK BD) in October
Revolver Entertainment have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Vinyan on 5th October 2009. Based on one of the biggest disasters of the century, Vinyan follows Paul (Rufus Sewell) and Jeanne Belhmer (Emmanuelle Béart) who like many other parents of their time journey to Thailand in search of their son, lost during the Tsunami of 2004. Glimpsing a boy who looks like Joshua in video footage from a village of orphaned children on the Thai-Burmese border, Jeanne becomes convinced that her son was kidnapped by traffickers.
Unwilling to shatter his wife’s last hope, Paul remains sceptical as she throws their money at a sinister smuggler who promises to take them by boat into pirate-infested waters to find their son. As they continue their quest through the dark jungle, the traumatized couple is pulled into a primeval hell created by their own obsessions and mutual desperation for some sense of closure.
The feature is written and directed by Fabrice Du Welz (Calvaire).
There are no extras. RRP is £12.99 on DVD and £17.99 on Blu-ray.
