The classic coming-of-age wartime comedy-drama The Two of Us, the debut of acclaimed director-producer Claude Berri, will be presented on Blu-ray and DVD in a glorious new 4K restoration.

When an 8-year-old Jewish boy (Alain Cohen) living in Nazi-occupied France is sent by his parents to live in the country with the Catholic parents of their friends, he is faced with a culture clash both religious and generational. The elderly couple honestly think that the boy has been sent to live with them because Paris is dangerous; it never crosses their mind that Claude is a Jew. Over several month, the boy grows close to his host, Pépé (Michel Simon, L’Atalante), a gruff grandfather surrogate whose growing relationship with the boy proves to be a touching portrayal of connection in a broken world.

Accompanying the film on both the Blu-ray and DVD are feature-length audio commentary track by Wade Major, film critic with NPR affiliate KPCC-FM and co-host and producer of the IGN DigiGods podcast, and the 2017 re-release trailer, among other bonus materials.
