On 10 September the Criterion Collection and Sony Picture Home Entertainment release Olivier Assayas' acclaimed early feature, Cold Water.

An acclaimed early work by Olivier Assayas, the long-unavailable, deeply felt coming-of-age drama Cold Water can at last be seen in the United States. Drawing from his own youthful experiences, Assayas revisits the outskirts of Paris in the early 1970s, telling the story of teenage lovers Gilles (Cyprien Fouquet) and Christine (Virginie Ledoyen), whose rebellions against family and society threaten to tear them apart. The visceral realism of the movie’s narrative and the near experimentalism of its camera work come together effortlessly thanks in part to a rock soundtrack that vividly evokes the period. Cold Water, whose centerpiece is one of the most memorable party sequences ever committed to film, is a heartbreaking immersion in the emotional tumult of being young.

The director-approved special edition Blu-ray includes a new, restored 4K digital transfer supervised by director Olivier Assayas, as well as new interviews with Assayas and cinematographer Denis Lenoir, and an excerpt from the 1994 French TV program on the film. The package also includes an essay by critic Girish Shambu.
