Competition: Win ‘Le Crime De Monsieur Lange’ on Blu-ray

Following its premiere at the Cinema Rediscovered Festival last month, the breath-taking new restoration of Jean Renoir’s lesser-known masterpiece, Le Crime De Monsieur Lange, will now be released in debut EST, DVD and Blu-ray editions on 27 August 2018, courtesy of Studiocanal and Vintage World Cinema.

To celebrate the release, we have 2 x Blu-ray copies of the film to give away to our amazing readers!

Monsieur Lange (René Lefèvre) is a publishing house clerk who writes cheap Western novels in his spare time. When his untrustworthy, salacious boss, Batala (Jules Berry) avoids his debt collectors by pretending to be dead, Lange and his co-workers take over the business themselves and thrive on the popularity of Lange’s pulp stories. That is until Batala returns to demand his share of the profits. Meanwhile Lange falls deeply in love with his neighbour Valentine, portrayed gloriously by the mesmerising Florelle.

Directed and co-written by Renoir, the story is adapted by another great of French cinema, Jacques Prévert, and boasts a nuanced leading performance by Lefèvre.
