Potemkine's previous Rivette blu rays (whose covers match these upcoming titles) do not appear to be English-friendly.
Slightly off-topic, but I'm excited to see that Potemkine have a blu ray of Hopper's "Out Of The Blue" forthcoming in December.

That was originally announced for (I think) this April, but then suddenly shifted to 31 December. I think that's just a placeholder date.

Out of the Blue should also be released in the US and UK later this year. I think the producers have been pushing for a theatrical release from distributors prior to home video, hence why it has been continually delayed past the initial aim of the 40th anniversary last year.

Update: Secret Défense will have French subtitles only: https://store.potemkine.fr/dvd/35450200 ... t-defense/ and Haut bas fragile either none at all or Potemkine's product page has been badly maintained: https://store.potemkine.fr/dvd/35450200 ... s-fragile/

Not sure this is an update, per se – please correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t these the exact same product pages that were up when you posted a couple of weeks ago?

Update: I just received the Potemkine Blurays of Haut bas fragile and Secret Defense and may tell that they DO HAVE english subtitles (as well as some nice extras). The picture and sound quality is excellent. All in all, two splendid releases.

I definitely need to send a reminder to Potemkine if people are getting their copies before me getting my review discs !

Stefan -- Do you know whether other releases in this Rivette series have English subs?

Michael - No, the other two Rivette release by Potemkine so far, "Le Pont du Nord" and "Jeanne la Pucelle", only have French subs. The same goes for "Duelle", Noroit" and "Merry-Go-Round" by Carlotta.

The 3 movies released in France by Carlotta were released by Arrow in the UK and the US, so that's where you'll find English subs.

Looks like at present , the shipping cost to the USA is about equal to the cost of these 2 blurays...

Great to know! These arrived in the mail today, but I haven't had time to look at them yet. I'm very gratified they included the English subs, and that the quality is good.
