I wish this were also the case for the US!
One of the two times I saw Le Pont du nord was in New York (but it was in repertory and had no subs!) Still, it's great to see it's getting some belated attention.

GaryC's list (and Michael's potential additions) sounds a lot more reasonable than what I found on IMDB, since I was always under the impression that Rivette never suffered that much of a visibility problem in the UK.

I checked their site -- the only scheduled showings are the ones in Brooklyn. I also noticed that the screen shots on the PdN page look a lot more faded than I recall from the French video (from ages ago).

It starts at BAM in NYC, then should move out around the country. You should check the pages for some of their other films to get a sense of whether they have good relationships with venues near you. I'm also fairly sure that those stills are production stills obtained from the French distributor, and shouldn't be considered at all representative of Film Desk's new 35mm print. But I'm planning on seeing it sometime this week, maybe twice, so I'll let you know.

FerdinandGriffon -- it doesn't look like much of Film Desk's stuff comes to Boston. Too bad, PdN is on my (purely honorary) Top 5 film list.

Plus if anyone is interested, the first night that Channel 4 television moved to 24 hours broadcasting back in 1997, they showed the full length version of La belle noiseuse. I can't think of any other Rivette films having been shown on UK television yet though.

Celine had definitely been on Film Four back in the subscription days and, believe it or not, Jeanne la Pucelle was once shown on Sky Movies back in the 1990s. I think Histoire de Marie at Julien has had a satellite showing, too. But there probably hasn't been much Rivette on the core UK TV channels.

You can add L'Amour par terre to definite UK theatrical openings.

Thanks, I wasn't going mad then! Though I didn't see it and still haven't seen it, I had a memory of that coming out in the mid 80s (in a shorter version than the one that recently appeared on DVD) but it's not on the BBFC website and I couldn't find it listed in my old copies of the Virgin Film Yearbook. So I guess that was an uncertificated run at somewhere like the ICA, then?

Hello, Can anyone let me know if there is a French script available out there for Celine et Julie vont en bateau? Many thanks.

Fantastic news. For anybody who has never seen a Rivette film, or is on the fence about him, this is the one you need to see.

You're only getting Celine's boating. Julie's boating will be available on a separate disc

As long as both discs come packaged together and not like Jeanne la Purcell

Why the Resnais as an extra? It's not even all that thematically connected which is the only connection I can reason.

Not sure, but both of those shorts were on the DVD.

MichaelB argues somewhere in this very thread that they're there because they thematically tie to the film

Well, that's some egg on my face even if I don't entirely agree.

When do BFI usually officially announce their new releases?

To be honest, I wish more Blu-ray producers would think laterally like this instead of fixating on common directors/participants as the sole viable reason for including a short film. Not least because it's a great method of getting outstanding shorts back into circulation.

The BFI is consistently the best at this (the Flipside strand in particular), but then again they have a major advantage in having a massive library of potential titles on tap.

The Flipside ones (that I've seen) are really good at connecting narrative and theme together. I'm just unconvinced that the use of memory between the two films are all that similar in method or concern.

I really cannot fathom why you'd need to come up with any excuse to include a film as masterly as Tout la mémoire du monde at all, and surely supporting a film where one of the central characters is a librarian (and where a key scene takes place in her library) is as good a one as any?
