I wouldn't mind if you were right, but at the moment there are only French subtitles mentioned on Gaumont's boutique. Maybe they'll add English subs later on, but for the moment: Hell, no!

I've just had a look at the listing on Amazon France and their specs mention English subtitles so I've emailed Gaumont to ask the question. Will post again when I hear back as this would be a must-have set if it does have subs.

I haven't heard anything back from Gaumont themselves yet but have had a response from Amazon France, who say:

As per your message theerfore we confirm again that the item "Jean-Luc Godard - Politique - Coffret 13 films" has following languages and sub-titles :

Language: French, Italian, English
Subtitles: English, French


Very promising but I'll probably still wait until Gaumont confirm the subs before placing my order.

Here is a reply I received, though I am still in doubt;

The DVDs are as well in English, in Italian and in French.
There are English and French subtitles.

Don't hesitate to ask any further question if necessary.

Thank you.

Can't find any early reports re subs on the discs of the "Politique" box, now out from Gaumont. Anyone have the set yet? Encouragingly, dvdfr.com (as well as amazon.fr) lists English subs.

Are you sure about that? Not that I do not trust you or anything. I am really glad to hear the confirmation from a buyer that all of them have English subs except Film Socialisme. I have blu ray version so I do not worry about it. I do not hesitate to purchase the set now!!

Thanks bunch!!

The Godard Politique box provides English subs for the features (except Film socialisme as mentioned before) but not the extras (one or two interviews per film, providing historical and critical background). Luttes en Italie has options for both the French and Italian soundtracks. Un film commes les autres has only the French version - not a big loss in my opinion, as the English version is truly painful. The Spanish Intermedio "Jean-Luc Godard y el Grupo Dziga Vertov" set includes 1PM (One Parallel Movie) and Letter to Jane, but Gaumont doesn't. On the other hand, Gaumont includes a number of additional titles: La chinoise, Le gai savoir, Numéro deux, Comment ça va?, Soft and Hard, and Film socialisme. All in all I'm quite happy with it.

NOUVELLE VAGUE REGION FREE OR REGION 1?

#434 Post by markpsf » Thu Jan 03, 2013 6:24 pm

I'd love to see this film. I'd like to own it.
I don't want to purchase a multi region player though and it appears to be unavailable in the U.S.

Any leads or is this a dead end for now?

And, if so, it's another comment on how far ahead Europe is when it comes to international cinema availability.

Thanks.

Mark

Well, it would be a terrible indictment on European film institutes and distributors if they weren't ahead of the US when it comes to their own cinema!

I guarantee you the French DVD would cost more than a region-free DVD player, BUT IT'S WORTH IT

Does anybody have information on the Dziga Vertov set from Japan? Is it like the Kinokuniya releases with just French and Japanese subtitles? Any idea of the picture quality?

Wasn't that always released in a white case?

Is Puissance de la parole available on DVD anywhere? I'm wondering where I can get a copy. (FWIW, if you haven't seen it, it'll play at Lincoln Center as part of a shorts program tomorrow night.)

Hail Mary and For Ever Mozart on Blu from Cohen Media Group. In January.

Hail Mary is cheaper, maybe it doesn't come with The Book of Mary.

Revisited Le petit soldat and had a good chuckle at Fox Lorber's claim here:

Could that be accurate? Well, it's

I'm not sure I'd seen this since last watching it on my old tube TV (!), but man, there's nowhere to go but up from this "Revival"-- where's this and Les carabiniers already, Criterion?!

Not a Blu-ray, but Le petit soldat is going to be added to the Criterion Channel on July 28th.

Rialto toured a new 35mm of Le Petit Soldat four years ago and nothing has happened since. Ten years ago, that would've meant a Criterion was imminent, but after all the Studio Canal titles went out of print, it seems like Rialto's relationship with Criterion died along with it.
