'Un jour mon père viendra': DVD Cover Art & Specs! Release Date Confirmed!

We can now happily confirm (for a second time - but we have details now!) that the French DVD release date for Un jour mon père viendra is June 13th. The cover art is pictured at left; here are the specs for the release!:

Distribution: Gaumont Video
Image Format: Aspect ratio 2.35 - 16/9, compatible 4/3
Audio Format: Original French - Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0
Video Format: Digital Master - 1:34

Bonus Features:
- The reunion of Gerard Jugnot and François Berléand after Les Choristes.
- The film debut of Olivia Ruiz.
- Between laughter and emotion, an endearing family story.
(Note: Jamie may be featured in that last one, no idea. We'll have to wait and see!)
Suggested retail price: €9.99 
(Since most of our readers appear to either be in the US or UK: At the moment that's approx. $13 and £8.25, respectively.)

Amazon.fr still haven't updated their page with the correct release date and the art, etc., but I'm sure they will imminently.

The odds were always iffy if UJMPV would get a theatrical release overseas, since none of its stars are well-known outside of their native France and it's not a festival winner. (see: The Artist ;) )  There may also still be a Canadian R1 release, we're looking into those details too. UPDATE - whoa, hey, that was fast! There DOES seem to be a Canadian R1 release around the same time - June 12th! CAN$ 20.99, which might end up breaking even for anyone in the States w/ regard to shipping - it's your call. Also unclear at this point if the Canadian release will have the same extras. 

At any rate, if you don't have a means of watching multi-region DVDs, now might be a great time to look into that. Lest we remind you...

Ahem. Yeah.
