A New Film From Director Zhang Yimou
Debuting on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital March 8

CULVER CITY, Calif. (January 19, 2016) Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announces the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital release of COMING HOME on March 8. COMING HOME marks the twelfth collaboration between Sony Pictures Classics and acclaimed Chinese film director Zhang Yimou (House of Flying Daggers, Hero), which began with the Academy Award®-nominated Raise the Red Lantern (1992, Best Foreign Language Film). This emotional story about family, love and loyalty stars two of Chinas finest actors, Chen Daoming (Infernal Affairs) and Gong Li (Memoirs of a Geisha). COMING HOME is Gong Lis eighth film with Yimou. The film was an official selection at the 2014 Cannes and Toronto International Film Festivals, and has earned a 93% Certified Fresh ranking on Rotten Tomatoes. Blu-ray Special Features on COMING HOME include a Toronto International Film Festival Q&A with Zhang Yimou and a directors commentary track.


Lu (Chen Daoming) and Feng (Gong Li) are a devoted couple forced to separate when Lu is arrested and sent to a labor camp as a political prisoner during the Cultural Revolution. When Lu is released years later, he returns home to find his beloved wife has amnesia and remembers little of her past. Unable to recognize him, she still patiently awaits her husbands return. A stranger within his own family, Lu is determined to awaken his wifes memory through gentle displays of unconditional and eternal love.

I wish Sony would be more specific in their press releases. This film has a Dolby Atmos mix, so I'm wondering if Sony will include it. If not, that would be extremely disappointing.

EDIT: Never mind, here is what is listed on the back cover:

1. Mandarin (PRC): DTS-HD MA 5.1

2. Portuguese: DTS-HD MA 5.1

3. English (Descriptive Audio): Dolby Digital 5.1

4. Spanish: Dolby Digital 5.1

Subtitles: English, English SDH, French, Portuguese, Spanish

At least they got that all-important lossless Portuguese dubbed audio track on the disc.

The Japanese Blu-ray from GAGA has the Atmos track, but is apparently somehow on a BD-25 disc (despite carrying a TrueHD dub and extras) and obviously, not English-friendly.

Apparently, the French BD (which came first) has only DTS-HD MA 5.1.

A film about love in its purest, most unselfish form. The two central performances are flawless. IMO, the best film about love since the magnificent AMOUR.
