So I've seen that this 5 DVD Guitry set does appear to have been re-released. boutique.gaumont.fr/fr/produit_5_Gaumont_110043_acheter_COFFRET_DVD_Sacha_Guitry_-_Un_esprit_fran%C3%A7ais_%281949-1952%29_en_stock.php

If anyone ordered it, do the main films actually have English subtitles? I am not expecting that, as they are not listed, but they did exist on the 8 DVD set (and generally weren't listed in product descriptions). Thanks.

According to the website no, it is paradoxically not the most reliable of sources but I would think most likely correct.

I've watched the Gaumont Blu-rays of A Nos Amours and Nous Ne Vieillirons Pas Ensemble twice now and, needless to say, both look wonderful. The second time around, I noticed that around the 10 minutes and 30 seconds (or so) mark of A Nos Amours, the light intensity goes up, then comes back down to the previous level, and then drops to a much lower level for a few seconds. It appears that someone was adjusting the light intensity during the film-to-digital transfer process. I don't know the process of transferring the image from film to digital medium, so I'm just guessing here. Has anyone else noticed this?

I know what you're talking about with respect to A Nos Amours. I presumed it was just a "flaw" embedded within the transfer.

What about an English translation of "le scénario original de 608 pages"? No, I thought not. I guess I'll stay with the previous release.

You wouldn't genuinely expect that from a French release, would you?

Are all of these Blu-rays? As if so, the Hossein and Melville in HD would be incredible news.

It's a new range which in shorthand is a bluray bare-bones Eclipse type deal. They are for the most part reissues of previous a la demande titles where elements allow for the upgrade. First batch came out last week See boutique at Gaumont for details. Molinaro and Autant-Lara figure from memory. 10 euros each.

The budget price is great, although so far the only 10 euro discs I've found with English subs (at least according to Amazon) are Il était une fois un flic..., Le Grand Blond avec une chaussure noire, and Le Retour du Grand Blond. (Has anyone spotted others?) Although Alexandre le bienheureux was unexpectedly terrific, so I'm more curious about Yves Robert than I was before.

Would be nice if MoC ported the Gremillion over, perhaps in early 2016?

And would make a great blu double with Lumiere d'été equally restored but not out on blu anywhere.
I really can't understand the reticence with Gremillon both in France and Anglophone territories. He has had two major retrospectives at Edinburgh and London film festivals, seasons in NY ,a major collection of essays in a recent Cahiers du Cinema issue and other than a few Gaumont a la demande and the Eclipse set there is relatively nothing.
