Stranger By The Lake Blu-Ray

stranger-by-the-lake-posterAn openly gay French thriller taking place on a nude beach, Alain Guiraudie’s Stranger By The Lake is available on Blu-Ray, DVD and streaming formats. Featuring some pretty explicit sex scenes, a bare setting and a slow pace, this film is certainly not for everybody (read our full review here) but reveals itself once you succumb to its atmosphere and discreet humor – it actually won the Certain Regard Best Directing award at last year’s Cannes film festival.

Featuring an excellent high-definition transfer in 1080p resolution this blu-ray edition perfectly translates the naturalist tones while a 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack is available in French with English subtitles.

Own it, Watch it or Skip it?

Stranger by the Lake is certainly worth experiencing if you’re a fan of art cinema and French films. Because this is one of these films you’ll probably just watch once, I would suggest just streaming it- you can find it on Netflix and other streaming services.
