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).

In the Name of My Daughter Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



NEWS
http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=17061

Quote:
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…

Kaos Blu-ray



NEWS/TRAILER
http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=17193

Quote:
The Cohen Media Group has sent us a brand new trailer for the recent restoration of Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's film Kaos (1984), starring Margarita Lozano, Orazio Torrisi, and Carlo Cartier.

Kaos is expected to arrive on Blu-ray later this year.

Synopsis: Magic, drama, misery, and hope are given life in five tales adapted from Luigi Pirandello's Novelle per un anno. With a strong, poetic vision of Sicilian life, directors Paolo and Vittorio Taviani imbue this epic masterpiece with a serene, sympathetic revelation of mankind that transcends the boundaries of time.

Hopefully, when the release is officially announced, Cohen will use the original poster for the cover that was used on the U.S. DVD release

A tremendous year for Cohen. Absolutely terrific selections

Looks like another Cohen release I can get excited for. They are quietly releasing a lot of good titles and I hope they keep it up.

Sheesh, Cohen sure is random about which of their new release titles are "Cohen Film Collection" or "Cohen Media Group." Don't get me wrong, I love 'em and I love their discs, but do they just pick the labeling decisions out of a hat or something?

There used to be a pattern. The CFC releases have mostly been older titles, either vintage titles from the Golden Age like the Vivien Leigh films, Jamaica Inn, Intolerance, etc. or more recent, but still older fare like Claude Chabrol films from the 80s. The CMG releases tended to be more recent, foreign titles (I don't think any are from before 2010) that presumably they've acquired for first run US theatrical distribution as well as home video.

That said, the lines seem to be blurring a little more lately, with really recent titles like Magician and Deli Man showing up under the CFC banner.

I wish COHEN would release Sudden Fear to BLU already. My most wanted classic title of theirs.
Stop the Replacing of original Studio Opening / Closing logos! These are becoming endangered and should be kept intact. They are part of film history.

Right, I was referring to those newer titles: Timbuktu, Magician, 3 Hearts and Deli Man are all CFC for some reason, even though (just like the rest of their contemporary releases) they aren't anywhere to be found on the actual CFC site.

Actually, Timbuktu is not a CFC release. I know, I know, the cover scan in the disc's entry in this site's database shows "Cohen Film Collection" at the top of the cover. But I have an actual copy of the release, and it says "Cohen Media Group".

This, of course, puts a damper on my understanding of what titles fall under which banner when I don't actually have the disc, and am going by the cover scans. I think the general pattern is correct, and that the cover scans are probably mostly correct, but some are undoubtedly wrong and -- perhaps like Timbuktu -- corrected before release.

In case anyone was interested, there is a Cohen sale at DVD Planet. Also, there is a 10% off code that I believe expires today (SUMMER10).

I ordered a bunch myself. Now I am finally all caught up on all of the Cohen titles I want.

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=17274

Quote:
The Cohen Media Group has sent us a new trailer for three recently restored films from Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, which will transition to Blu-ray later this year. The three films in The Taviani Collection are: Padre Padrone a.k.a. Father and Master (1977), Night of the Shooting Stars (1982), and Kaos (1984).

Padre Padrone

Follows the story of young, barely literate shepherd boy Gavino who lives under the thumb of his tyrannical peasant father. He is ultimately rescued from his family and his isolated lifestyle by a call to military service, eventually emerging as a brilliant linguist and scholar. Based on the book by Gavino Ledda. Starring Omero Antonutti, Saverio Marconi, Marcella Michelangeli, Stanko Molnar, and Nanni Moretti. NEW 2K RESTORATION.

Night of the Shooting Stars

It is the Night of San Lorenzo, the night when dreams come true. While watching shooting stars, Cecilia tells her son about a similar night in 1944, when she was six years old and the residents of San Martino, her small Tuscan town, defied their Nazi occupiers. Starring Omero Antonutti, Margarita Lozano, and Claudio Bigagli. NEW 2K RESTORATION.

Kaos

Magic, drama, misery, and hope are given life in five tales adapted from Luigi Pirandello's Novelle per un anno. With a strong, poetic vision of Sicilian life, directors Paolo and Vittorio Taviani imbue this epic masterpiece with a serene, sympathetic revelation of mankind that transcends the boundaries of time. Starring Margarita Lozano, Orazio Torrisi, and Carlo Cartier. NEW 2K RESTORATION.
