New Release: Rage DVD

Rage movie scene

Gustavo Sánchez Parra tries to keep it cool for Martina García in Rage.

Strand Releasing issues the Spanish-language romantic thriller Rage on DVD on March 8, 2011.

Produced by Guillermo del Toro (Cronos) and directed by Sebastián Cordero (Crónicas), the movie is based on a novel by Sergio Bizzio.

Rage (Rabia in its native Spanish) tells the story of a pair of Latin American immigrants — hot-headed builder José (Gustavo Sánchez Parra) and housekeeper Rosa (Martina García) — who fall in love and embark on a passionate relationship. When a violent confrontation with José’s foreman results in the other man’s death, José flees to the mansion where Rosa works, telling no one. Hidden even from her, José watches Rosa be mistreated by her boss as he yearns for the day they can be together.

The 2009 film won the Special Jury prize at the Tokyo International Film Festival and Best Film at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival. It received a limited release in theaters in the U.S. last month.

No special features are on the DVD, which carries a list price of $24.99.
