Here we go. After it's brief theatrical run and appearance on VOD through FlixFling in the US, A Serbian Film
is coming to home video on Blu-ray and DVD from independent distributor, Invincible Pictures. Invincible haven't made a formal announcement of content, runtimes, or extras yet, but they have made listed the Blu-ray as a "Limited Edition" on their own website.
In my previous conversations with Invincible, they told me that their intention was to release their unrated version, with approximately 1 minute cut, on home video. There is no indication that this has changed, as the promotional artwork seen below indicates an unrated edition. If that is the packaging as well, I think it looks pretty cool.
I don't think I need to rehash the controversy that has followed the film, you can look that up for your own by following the links below this article. I will, however, repost Invincible's synopsis if, by some miracle, you've managed to avoid any info about the film:
Milos, a retired porn star, leads a normal family life with his wife
Maria and six-year old son Petar in tumultuous Serbia, trying to make
ends meet. A sudden call from his former colleague Layla will change
everything. Aware of his financial problems, Layla introduces Milos to
Vukmir - a mysterious, menacing and politically powerful figure in the
pornographic business. A leading role in Vukmir's production will
provide financial support to Milos and his family for the rest of their
lives. A contract insists on his absolute unawareness of a script they
will shoot. From then on, Milos is drawn into a maelstrom of
unbelievable cruelty and mayhem devised by his employer, "the director"
of his destiny. Vukmir and his cohorts will stop at nothing to complete
his vision. In order to escape the living cinematic hell he's put into,
and save his family's life, Milos will have to sacrifice everything -
his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe even his own life.
I have a request in at Invincible for further details, and when I get some answers, I'll post them here as an update, until then, check out the artwork and the link to their store where the pre-order is up.
