Blu-ray Giveaway: Capital + Amen - Enter by June 25, 2014

By , Contributor
We’re proud to partner with Cohen Media Group, sponsor of this giveaway of two gripping films from director Costa-Gavras, Capital (starring Gariel Byrne) and Amen (each now available for purchase on Blu-ray and DVD). Three lucky winners will receive both new releases, Capital and Amen on Blu-ray.

Enter our giveaway by June 25, 2014 using the PunchTab form below. Giveaway is open to U.S. residents aged 18 and over.

Official Synopsis: CAPITAL, based on the novel by Stephane Osmont and a prize winner at the San Sebastian Film Festival, is a fast-paced, darkly comic, suspenseful drama set in the high-stakes world of global finance. When the CEO of the giant Phenix Bank collapses on the golf course, Machiavellian young executive Marc Tourneuil is crowned as his replacement. A whirlwind of ruthless ambition, power struggles, greed and deception ensues as Tourneuils rise to power is jeopardized by a hostile takeover attempt from a large American hedge fund, erotic distractions from an international supermodel, and adversaries with an agenda for destruction.

Costa Gavras potrait (380x253).jpgOfficial Synopsis: In AMEN, based on Rolf Hochhuth’s play The Deputy, Costa-Gavras creates a powerful and riveting account of the Final Solution that questions how much was known outside of Germany as mass exterminations were carried out in Nazi death camps. Ulrich Tukur (North Face, Solaris) stars as Kurt Gerstein, a German chemist whose work on various governmental health projects leads to his assignment as an SS officer in charge of hygiene. When he learns that Zyclon B, a toxic cleanser he created to stem the tide of typhoid among German troops, is being used in gas chambers, Gerstein is horrified. But his pleas to officials in Germany, Sweden and the U.S. to stop the genocide fall on deaf ears.

Special features on Capital: cast and crew interviews. Special features on Amen: Feature-length audio commentary with director Costa-Gavras and film critic Wade Major; 2014 re-release trailer; BBC documentary “Pope Pius XII: The Pope, the Jews and the Nazis.”
