Which are these, that haven't been mentioned above? Duvivier's La fête à Henriette sounds interesting. Not sure I'm finding all of them though.

Les Trois Mousquetaires (1953) and Le Capitan (1960) (both directed by André Hunebelle) coming on Nov. 15th. If English subs, then yes!

It's :
La fête à Henriette (Duvivier)
Germinal (Berri)
Jean de Florette + Manon des Sources (Berri)

If anybody's interested, I found Germinal to be an absolutely garbage movie. It lasts 2h40 but is one of the flattest and most rigid movie I ever saw to the point that despite Germinal being adequately long to fill 2h40, at the end, it feels like nothing happens. Every single actor seems to have a bet going on as to who is going to play its part with the least expression on their face (Miou Miou wins) and the mise-en-scène itself is lazy as hell. Even when all hell break loose in the end, you'd think all the characters are high on ether or something.

Yeah, I haven't seen the film since my LD days, but I remember not liking it much. I can't remember why specifically. I'm pretty sure the scenes in the mine were all over lit, though.

La fête à Henriette is one of my favorite French films, so now that I know the new disc has English subs I'll be sure to get it. Paris When It Sizzles was the English language remake--but you shouldn't hold that against it.

Not compared to the original.

All 6 November releases have Eng subtitles for the main features. This includes Clouzot's Miquette et sa mère.

The first time André Hunebelle’s French releases are with EN subs, I presume.

What are the other three November titles? I only see the two Hunebelles and the Cluzot mentioned.

3 Coluche movies : Inspecteur la bavure, Banzai & La femme de mon pote.

I think so, yes. 1st time on BD, anyway.

Thanks for the info. The current Blu of Le Bossu is in French only and the decade old collector’s edition DVD didn’t have subs either if I recall. Hopefully they’ll release an English-friendly edition someday.

Another thing I sincerely hope from Gaumont (and Pathe) is subtitling the extras as well.
