Yet again, Dolby Digital audio only.


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


They already confirmed they will not, so if you need the lossless audio, you can buy the gaumont.

Cohen will be putting out "Two Films By Douglas Sirk" in September. Google suggests that one is probably "A Scandal in Paris."

The second will most likely be Lured.

The cover confirms that it's A Scandal in Paris and Lured.

I think the future Pialats are all in the past now. The five features released by Cohen to date are it as far as US rights go, since L'Enfance Nue and A Nos Amours are (presumably) still with Criterion and Nous ne vieillerons pas ensemble and Police are in print from Kino and Olive. Le Garcu is in a seemingly perpetual rights abyss (even Gaumont couldn't license it for individual release, and its inclusion in the Integrale box set was apparently a "once and never again" arrangement), and La maison des bois seems to be beyond the resources of any English-language company. Even Gaumont haven't upgraded this to BluRay yet.

Cohen is releasing Joan Crawford's Sudden Fear. Saw this screened recently and it looked terrific. First time seeing it and thought it was an excellent Crawford noir.

Got my Douglas Sirk double feature in the mail yesterday. I watched around half of Lured before falling asleep (not the movie's fault, I started it too late) but it looked great, hope they release more of Sirk's early output.

The trailer for Sudden Fear that played before looked fantastic, really looking forward to that release.

Interesting. I'm more psyched about Fairbanks and the restoration of THE OLD DARK HOUSE than Rivette.

Buried in the article is the mention that Cohen has secured the rights to King of Hearts (1966) in all territories except France, although, inexplicably, the actual title of the film was excluded from the article.

Sweeeeet!!!! I tend to prefer Rivette's later period works and i'm glad they found a home with a respectable company. Really looking forward to these...

that's fantastic news !!! :)

But, I was kind of... let's say... fond of Emmanuelle Béart from her young days...

Several years ago I bought in Japan "La Belle Noiseuse" on blu-ray (First, my main concern was to check that it was the complete movie (not the "short" edit supervised by Rivette) then probably the main concern was to check if this was "foufoune" blurried (don't google-translate it's a bit dirty).
Well, that's how I discover what they call in Japan "Remastered Edition".
that means that the blu-ray was just an upscale (and 1080i with a lot of juggering)
There has been a half or quarter definition broadcast on French TV (digital) and it has more details.
It's almost blurry.
If I take my DVD (Arte) and upscale it, it looks as good- or even better...

Le "Pont Du Nord" by MoC/Eureka Blu-Ray on the other hand looks just fine.
Too bad they didn't get the rights for La Belle Noiseuse....

on the other hand Vincent Gallo "Buffalo '66" was stunning (better than the Blu-Ray US which came later; with more details, film grain, etc...) I didn't expect this blu-ray and movie looking THAT good in High-Def...

The thing with Japanese Blu-Ray is that you never know...

Well, the good news (for you) is that Cohen licenses to both MoC and Arrow so it's very likely if the Cohen release does end up disappointing for whatever reason it's very likely to be at least slightly improved upon in the UK.

Very excited about Jeanne la Pucelle on Blu. I saw the full version on 35mm in DC circa 2006, and at the time I thought it was Rivette's best looking film.

I wish Va Savoir+ would have also been included in the deal, but I'm guessing that (a) Sony still holds the rights, and that (b) the "+" cut is not real, but a unicorn.

I certainly remember reports that this longer version of Va savoir was, in fact, screening in French theaters at one point -- but it certainly never went any further.

It definitely exists. Mary M. Wiles' book on Rivette says it had a seven-week run at a single theater in Paris starting in April 2002. That's supported by the CNC's database of visas and classifications, which has an entry for a Va savoir plus dated to the same month, with a listed length of 226 minutes/6,124 meters.

Wow. Good job Cohen Media Group for picking up these Rivette films for release on Blu-ray. While you're at it, please release some Claude Sautet films, too. I'd like to see Les Choses de la Vie, Un Coeur en Hiver, and Nelly et Mr. Arnaud on Blu-ray.

Fun bit of trivia others might enjoy: the theatre Va savoir plus played in is the Cinéma du Panthéon, perhaps the oldest surviving cinema in Paris (albeit renovated extensively). According to this blog post, it's also where Godard shot the scene of Anna Karina watching Dreyer's The Passion of Joan of Arc for Vivre sa vie. It was owned by Pierre Braunberger at the time, JLG's producer, and Godard, Truffaut and Rivette were all regular fixtures both as filmmakers presenting their work and as spectators for other films (you can read more about this in the excellent Cinemas of Paris anthology edited by Jean-Michel Frodon and Dina Iordanova).
