The New York Times preview of coming attractions shows a DVD version of Jacque Rivette's much anticipated "Celine and Julie go boating" released on November 15 2005. The article does not mention the label. If anyone has further information, please post.

This could be Criterion. We have been expecting a Rivette title and I just recently ask Criterion on Rivette (specifically this title), and still no answer over a week. But do they ever release a film on the 15th.

Except Criterion has already announced their November titles.

Yes. Their website has Dec 6 as a release date.

I hope they are sourcing the print from MK2 whose French (unsubbed) release last year was excellent. Now anyone for for Out One? Paris nous Appartient?

I have not seen many of Jacque Rivette's films. I loved Histoire de Marie et Julien. Most of his films have been hard to see over years, especially, Out 1. From what I have read, Paris nous appartient sounds very interesting, mysterious. What about La Religieuse, starring Anna Karina and Liselotte Pulver? Kino owns the rights and put a widescreen VHS in 2000. Looks like we narrowly missed a DVD edition. Sounds like a harrowing story. It would interesting to see how Rivette would handle such material. It's one of his shorter films, that's for sure; 135 minutes!

I only saw Va Savoir and it was cute, but nothing special. I imagine it`s not among his best films, though.

I keep meaning to rent La Belle noiseuse (the UK edition). The epic length is a bit daunting, though, but it sounds like a very interesting film. And it stars Emmanuelle Béart who is has a unique beauty and is a very versatile actress.

Did you see the 220-minute cut of Va Savoir or the 154-minute version? It is the latter that is available on DVD in the UK.

Does this mean we can expect Alain Tanner's films to come out soon? Also THE MOTHER & THE WHORE?

I'd love to finally see In the White City, which is often said to contain Bruno Ganz's best performance. Then there's Light Years Away; Charles, Dead or Alive; The Salamander and Messidor. All long overdue on DVD.

Well, I saw it at a film festival in Belgrade, in competition, so I would guess it`s the longer version. It was a festival print, the kind which makes festival rounds.

The long version of "Va savoir" came out in the theaters in France a couple of years after the film (short version) was first released. So far as I know, the long version has not been shown elsewhere (though isolated showings may be possible).

The French/Swiss(?) DVD release of "Jonah" and "Milieu de monde" has good English subtitles. surprisingly, the latter film (which I had never really heard of before buying the DVD) turned out to be my favorite Tanner film (of those seen so far). There is also a DVD of "Les années lumière" (Light Years Away). No subs needed, as this is an English language film (visually interesting -- but weird story).

It's a shame Criterion couldn't wrestle this away from them.

Some things to consider re: New Yorker's CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING:

1.) It will probably be a duff PAL > NTSC conversion.

2.) The subs probably won't be that good. For a film with lots of wordplay, it needs a very, very subtle and sensitive English translation.

3.) Tom Milne is doing the subs translation from scratch for the UK version.

4.) The UK version will be PAL > PAL, and worth waiting for.

Thanks for the heads-up, Nick, on the UK release. Is this coming from Eureka, or another company? [it looks like a company named Connoisseur released the film on VHS in the UK]

I will gladly wait for any competent alternative to a New Yorker DVD release. The old phrase goes "once burned, twice shy," but I've been burned enough times by New Yorker that just reading the company's name sends a cold shiver down my spine.

Gordon, just go out and get it, the AE's a quality disc(s) and the film is pure joy
