Columbia presents The Princess and the Warrior

The German film industry was revitalized in American cinema with director Tom Tykwer’s high-tempo techno romp “Run Lola Run”. Tykwer followed up the film with this summer’s mind-bending romance The Princess and the Warrior. Filled with many of the directorial traits of its predecessor, the new film is coming to DVD in January from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment and Sony Classic Pictures.

When shy, beautiful nurse Sissi (Franka Potente) is the victim of a horrible car accident, a handsome small-time criminal (Benno Furmann) miraculously saves her life. When she recovers, Sissi sets out to find him and discovers a violent man with a conflicted past and dangerous future. Soon, the two meet again in the middle of a deadly bank robbery, and Sissi realizes her fate is pre-destined – or is it?

Given an anamorphic widescreen transfer, “The Princess and the Warrior” features German audio in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Surround 2.0 with optional subtitles. Two audio commentaries are included on the disc, the first from director Tom Tykwer and the second with Tykwer accompanied by the film’s stars Franka Potente and Benno Furmann. The disc will also feature a making-of featurette, deleted scenes, a music video directed bt Tykwer, filmographies and theatrical trailers.

Coming on January 29th, “The Princess and the Warrior” makes its debut on DVD for a suggested retail price of $29.95.
