Cinematek (Belgium)

CINEMATEK pays homage to the unique films of Belgian film maker André Delvaux and publishes a whole collection devoted to his work. Over a period of 2 years (from October 2010 to December 2012) six films will be restored and made available in a DVD format.

The newest release in this collection is Benvenuta.
Cast Fanny Ardant: Benvenuta / Vittorio Gassman: Livio Carpi / Françoise Fabian: Jeanne / Mathieu Carrière: François / Claire Wauthion: Inge / Philippe Geluck: Le père / Anne Chappuis: La mère

Met onze jongens aan den Ijzer (With Our Troops on the Yser) at The Digital Fix, the first in a series of reviews looking at Cinematek's non-fiction output (plus a review of their Avant-Garde set coming soon also).

(Wrong topic, I know, but "Flemish cinema on DVD" doesn't exist and I didn't want to make one for this purpose)

Stumbled upon a chance to get this boxset at a good price - can anyone advise if these films are worth the while: Flemish Films Classic Collection 40DVD
