Alain Guiraudie’s stunning "Stranger By The Lake" finally makes its way to DVD and Bluray next week, and we've got an exclusive deleted scene included in the set. And it's a pretty fascinating one. 

As you may or may not know, "Stranger" follows Franck (Pierre Deladonchamps), a man who spends his summer days at a French cruising lake. He ends up meeting and becoming infatuated by Michel (Christophe Paou), pursuing an intense (and condom-free) sexual relationship with him despite being basically certain that Michel is, well, a murderer. 

The deleted scene gives us a small amount of introspection into Franck's self-destructive decision-making process, offering a dialogue between him and a different stranger by the lake that discusses safe sex. Watch below (it's mildly NSFW if your workplace has a lot of French speakers, at least), and if you want to win a free copy of the Blu-ray, please click here.
