MosFilm: Solaris to be Renewed (08.07.2011)
Quote:
We have been restoring films from Mosfilm’s Golden Collection for about 3 years. During this period 25 pictures have been renovated such as the Zero City, They fought for their country, Andrey Rublev, Spartak, The Mirror, The Tale of Tsar Saltan, Dersu Uzala, Diamond Hand, The White Sun of the Desert and others. Today we work on Solaris.
And no concrete plans to release Blu-rays!
Quote:
Generally the restored picture can be converted either to Betacam or Blue-Ray format.
And they already released on Blu-ray 3 movies directed by Karen Shakhnazarov - the current head of MosFilm!
I hate MosFilm!

At least we have an edition from Criterion for now...but for those locked to Region B or C, this is rather stupefying news. It would be nice to see at least one more classic Russian film on domestic BD this year.

"Krupnyj plan" is going to release soon a few classic Russian films (the most anticipated one is "Heart of a Dog"). But their previous releases were not English-friendly. Their nearest release, btw, is "Courier" directed by... Karen Shakhnazarov.

Hopefully Zerkalo will receive a treatment just as nice as did Andrei Rublev.

I'm not too trusting of Kino after the halos on The Sacrifice (nitpicking for Tarkovsky home videos is a tradition right?), and AE seems to be very lethargic.

Also, thanks for the information on Napoleon, McCrutchy. This would mark the 5th time it's screened since reconstruction, I believe? And live music to boot!

In April as a part of celebration of 80-year anniversary of Andrey Tarkovskiy MosFilm is going to present a DVD combo release of "Solaris" and "The Passion According to Andrei" (Andrei Rublev) in "never seen before" versions ("not theatrical versions"). The exact details are unknowns at the moment. MosFilm's site also mentions the forthcoming Blu-ray release of Solaris. So it's very likely that the version will differ from one released by Criterion.

Links in Russian:
ru-tarkovsky
Mosfilm.ru
Thanks to NeedforSpeed for these links.

No hope for the thumbnail, it will emit a high-quality films of Tarkovsky. All hope for a Criterion. Even if you look at a Сlose-Up studio release, we can say that the digitization of the film were not done very well, and releases Andrei Rublev and Mirror issued with a weak soap clarity and staff, although if they took the source code such as Andrei Rublev 70 mm film, it was possible to to achieve high definition...

so unfortunate that most of these Russian catalog release do not contain subtitles... Very minimal cost to add them and help expand their potential audience....
