French label MK2 has revealed that it plans to bring to Blu-ray two classic films directed by François Truffaut: La femme d'à côté a.k.a The Woman Next Door (1981), starring Gérard Depardieu, Fanny Ardant, and Henri Garcin, and Vivement dimanche! a.k.a Confidentially Yours (1983), starring Fanny Ardant, Jean-Louis Trintignant, and Jean-Pierre Kalfon. The two releases will be available for purchase in October.
The ghost of a tempestuous affair is reawakened when the two lovers, estranged for 10 years and now both newly married, coincidentally move next door to each other. Francois Truffaut wrote the leading roles especially for his two stars, Gerard Depardieu and Fanny Ardant. Street date: October 2.
Francois Truffaut's final film is comedy thriller with a Hitchcockian theme. Shot in the style of a classic American thriller - in crisp black and white - a company boss is accused of murdering his wife and her lover, and the evidence seems to support this. Whilst he is hiding from the police, his secretary takes on the role of detective and she uncovers illicit love affairs, prostitution rings and skeletons in everyone's closets before she uncovers the real culprit. Street date: October 2.
