1. I can't speak on behalf of Gaumont, but I know that these were done in waves a while ago. As I noted above, the big restorations were done for the 10th anniversary of Mr. Pialat's death.

2. The second question: Gaumont have a very big restoration program. Earlier they did on-demand DVD bundles of films that were either out of print or were never before released on DVD. I have quite a few of them and they are not bad at all. Last year, Gaumont started moving many of these titles to Blu-ray. This is why you now have the Classiques and Discoveries Collections. The Pialat titles were part of the former.

3. Not all new/recent Gaumont restorations transition to Blu-ray, or at least not immediately. And there is nothing unusual about a foreign distributor releasing a new restoration that is not out yet in France. For example, Criterion released Godard's Weekend in 2012, which is an exclusive French restoration, via Gaumont again, but it is not out yet in France. Also, Canal just released their restoration of Melville's Army of Shadows in France (last month):



I expect to see very good releases for the Pialat films from Cohen because the restorations that I have seen are very well done. (I only have a few very minor reservations about the color grading).

The Cohen Media Group will release on Blu-ray director André Téchiné's latest film, In the Name of My Daughter (2014), starring Catherine Deneuve, Guillaume Canet, and Adèle Haenel. The release will be available for purchase on September 22.

Synopsis: Acclaimed director ANDRÉ TÉCHINÉ brings a gripping real-life thriller to the screen. 1976. When her marriage falls apart, Agnes Le Roux (ADÈLE HAENEL) moves back to the South of France from Africa to live with her mother, Renee (CATHERINE DENEUVE), owner of the Palais de La Mediterranee casino in Nice. There, Agnes falls in love with Maurice Agnelet (GUILLAUME CANET), a lawyer and Renee's business advisor, who is ten years her senior. Maurice continues to have relationships with other women. Agnes is madly in love with him. As a shareholder in the Palais de la Mediterannee casino, Agnes decides to sell what should have been her inheritance to go it alone. A fixed card game threatens the casino's financial stability. Someone is trying to intimidate her mother. Behind the scenes hangs the shadow of the mafia and Fratoni, the owner of a rival casino, who wants to take over the Palais de la Mediterannee. Agnelet, who has fallen from grace with Renee, introduces Agnes to Fratoni. Fratoni offers her 3 million francs to vote against her mother in the shareholder's meeting. Agnes accepts the offer. Renee loses control of the casino. Agnes finds it hard to cope with her betrayal. Maurice also distances himself from her. In November 1977, after a failed suicide attempt, Agnes disappears. Her body is never found. Thirty years on, Maurice Agnelet remains the prime suspect in a murder case with no body and no proof of his guilt. Convinced of his involvement, Renee is prepared to fight to the bitter end to see him put behind bars…
