Amazon 4K scans of 114 Lumière shorts now on Amazon Prime

Last month, Prime released the 90-minute film Lumière!, and it appears to be the first time it has been available with English commentary (it's hard to confirm this online since the title is so generic). Stream here: https://www.amazon.com/Lumière-Thier.../dp/B07PQTG2K8

It is a basic montage of 114 films (each about 50 seconds long) from 1895-1905, by the inventors of cinema, Auguste and Louis Lumière. Most people know the famous "Arrival of a Train (L'arrivée d'un train en gare de la Ciotat)", included in this trailer:

Commentary from Thierry Frémaux, the director of the Institut Lumière in Lyon, France. Subtitles in English.

For background on the film, check out this review: http://lukemckernan.com/2015/11/15/lumiere-forever/

Originally titled Lumière! L'aventure commence. French Blu-ray set with 2nd disc of additional documentaries: https://www.amazon.fr/dp/B00SVF132A

Alternate spelling for search: Lumiere 2015 Blu-ray now on Amazon Prime.

Spectacular! Thanks for posting this. I would love a Region-A Blu (or dare I hope for UHD??) of these classic Lumiere flicks. I love my DVD "Landmarks of Early Film" from Image Entertainment, which contains many of these. That old disc is wonderful, yet definitely shows its age. But wow wow WOW, the quality of these new scans is incredible. Definitely keeping a hopeful eye out for a Region-A "shiny disc" release of these!

@steel_breeze Yes, I sure hope there is enough demand in the US for an English-version, Region A. These films are the true beginning of cinema.
