Re the English subtitles - I would assume that these have been updated ?? (read a lot of complaints about the previous version missing a lot of subtitles for dialogue ??


And I can only assume that the extras on these discs are not subtitled (English friendly ?)

The extras do not have English subtitles. The subtitles have more lines than the Second Sight releases, Pere by 150ish and Mere by a handful. Haven't watched the films yet to know if anything is missing.

Amazing news on the 4K releases!

Outside a few instances of teal, they look nothing like a typically green Ritrovata job.

Pathé distribution owns the rights and no one of these films is planned in uhd 4k at the moment ...

This is in reference to the UHD release of "Les Tontons Flingueurs" from avcaesar.com:

"For aesthetic reasons and fidelity to the original spirit of the film, the HDR has not been implemented on this 4K edition of the Tontons . Do not look in the TV settings, it does not exist. Gaumont did not want to give the film the look of blockbuster, a flashy modernist look that could have destabilized or even shocked. A bias that can easily be understood."

I hope this choice is not implemented for these upcoming UHD releases as the sun-soaked, southern France country side would be a HDR dream come true.

The upcoming UHD releases for My Father's Glory & My Mother's Castle.

Just concerned as Gaumont released "Les Tontons Flingeurs" in SDR on UHD. The film "Les Tontons Flingeurs" was supposedly going to have a HDR grade and have found this quote from the digitalcine.fr UHD review:

"We have tried to learn more about the main lines of the 4K restoration process from the publisher but the only information that has been confirmed to us is that the absence of HDR encoding is justified by tests deemed unsatisfactory." So we at least know that HDR is a priority to at least test in the restoration process.

All I can find about the upcoming release of My Father's Glory & My Mother's Castle is a short article by avcesar.com that said that Jerome Soulet on behalf of Gaumont showed a short UHD clip of My Father's Glory at a conference in Paris for Blu-Ray Partners France.

I'm going to try and contact Gaumont and and see if they can at least confirm HDR for My Father's Glory & My Mother's Castle.

Just watched both of the new blu-ray transfers and despite one caveat, these are very good restorations. My comparisons are against the 2008 French BD release (Same transfers as the 2012 UK release?).

Detail
2008 < 2017 - New transfer a clear winner by a long shot. Much better, tighter and more refined levels of detail and in some shots absolutely breathtaking.

White level/highlights
2008 < 2017 - Vastly improved over the 2008 release which suffered from medium to minor instances of white levels being a little blown out. The new transfer is bright and beautiful.

Black level
2008 = 2017 - This is a draw. Darker scenes on both transfers tended to have night sequences abit on the murky side. I did notice that black were slightly raised on the new transfers and to achieve the level on the 2008 release and pleasing levels in general the black level need to be lowered a few notches. The lowering of the black levels did not crush detail.

Color/Grading
2008 < 2017 - The 2008 appears more colorful at a glace because it is inaccurate. Color is over saturated and vegetation takes on an unnatural glow. The 2017 release presents a more natural color palate giving colors that "pop" an accurate "pop."

The grading on 2017 release is more on the teal side. By comparison, the 2008 color balance is neutral. Both releases contain a short restoration comparison and both movies do take on the teal look in the unrestored footage. So I am left to guess that it is representative of presenting the theatrical look and not an attempt at a modern regrade.

Default French films ratings.

Sad thing that most French films don't have ratings on Blu-Ray.com https://forum.blu-ray.com/images/smilies/confused.gif
