Ditto. It's definitely not one of Pialat's strongest and I suspect on a certain level I've just seen too many films to remember slightly above average films. If my memory is right it play like a weaker Police.

The trailer says its a new restoration. Maybe the scene with the devil will actually look like it takes place at night?

I think it's been confirmed that volume 1 will include Mouth Agape, Graduate First and Loulou and volume 2 will have Van Gogh, Under the Sun of Satan and...? I'm thinking Police but it hasn't been confirmed yet as far as I know.

Both sets will be day one buys to me. Pialat is definitely my favorite French director.

Mouth Agape and Graduate First have not been released on BD before, have they? I hope Criterion tackles L'Enfance Nue soon, that will be his only major film without an HD release.

That's a horrendous cover, but if the transfer's good, I'll take it.

The titles are little misleading. They call them Collection Vol.2 and Vol.3, but include only one film in each. This is really weird.

I'm wondering if the sound is still as low as the MoC disc. It was so low I had to increase my amp volume almost to its maximum (it's a Yamaha which goes from -60dB to +20, I usually listen at -32.5) to hear the dialogues.

Ugh. Dare I hope MoC will do a proper blu release of this (and their other Pialat titles)?

Did Crit loose the rights? I thought this was the one film of theirs they still had for the long term?

There was an ugly lawsuit between the Merchant Ivory company and Criterion. Not sure of all the details, but Merchant Ivory has a reputation of being tough to deal with.
