Nothing happening I guess.

The karagarga.org link is now dead. Boris' blog hasn't been updated since 2005. I am not desperate enough to start ordering Japanese DVDs yet -- Eustache's films play often enough in NYC to keep me happy.

Are there not even rumours regarding Artificial Eye (R2) and Jean Eustache's "La maman et la putain" ? It feels like waiting for ages on a DVD release ...

Any info is welcome !! :)

AE do seem to be knocking out their DVD boxes pretty quickly these days - even the Bressons are finally turning up. I had the good fortune of being able to see La Maman et la Putain on video recently, and am greatly intrigued to see his other work.

For those who don't know much about the film or are interested, Jonathan Rosenbaum gives a great review here.

Though because most of the screenings are free and on Saturdays and Sundays, those in New York can come down via the boltbus (only 2 bucks round trip and free wireless). Seems kinda crazy, yes, but its doable.

Though I just realized that I will be missing the 4/21 Monday night screening of The Little Lovers since I'll be in St Louis. Phooey!

FYI - NYC is getting the Jean Eustache retro around the same as DC, at the French Institute (Florence Gould Hall on 59th), but since I live in Maryland, I'll be going to the DC one also.

Still no news about a Jean Eustache boxset?

my wish is a boxset just because i've always thought that the best eustache achievement arte the less likely to come out as single issues:

thinking about Le cochon, La rosiere de Pessac and Les photos d'Alix

A 7-DVD "Integrale" Jean Eustache box set has been announced by French DVD distributor Tamasa. Check the banner announcement here.

No further info on the site at the moment.

At last! Unfortunately, a quick look at their recent releases suggests we shouldn't expect English subs.

Tamasa´s Eustache box is now expected in November 2011. Earlier announcement was premature according to a French-language post at dvdclassik.com. No info on Tamasa´s website. Poster must have another source.

Any updates on this set? There's nothing on Amazon France, but the banner is still on Tamasa's site.

Amazingly, according to their website, they only take snail mail or phone calls. No e-mail address to be found.

The Tamasa box set will almost certainly not happen, despite the banner on their site. It's the usual problem with Boris Badonov. http://cinema.nouvelobs.com/articles/14 ... ie-des-dvd" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Automatic translation from Google Chrome:

Assigns one hand, producers and distributors on the other: the strongest are not necessarily those that are growing.

Film fans moan. Or even get upset outright. "It's very shocking that hides behind Boris Eustache administrative problems or susceptibility to deny the DVD release of films of his father," is the filmmaker Luc Beraud annoys, assistant director of "the Mother and the Whore. " Same story on the Net where one challenges the financial greed of the heir. However, cyclically, for years, the release video of "the Mother and the Whore" is announced. A box full of 13's films is even promised for late 2012 or early 2013 by the company Tamasa, distributing films Eustache. "It's a bit early to get a more precise release date, says Philippe Chevassu, director of society, but we will start to get on with the restoration. " Wonderful news awaited the appearance of the digital disc, or over fifteen years! Alas, it will not happen. "As long as you want me to sign contracts that commit me for ten years and we will not give me 50% of copyright, I will not , said Boris Eustache straightforward. Sorry for moviegoers, but if they want to sell their business to a quarter of their price, that's their problem. I refuse. " In the movie business as elsewhere, difficulties arise when it comes to money.

What are the rights of the heirs? The authors in France benefit from legal protection particularly elaborate, long remained unrivaled in the world. Under the code of intellectual property rights of authors or their heirs, are both moral and economic. Moral rights are inalienable, imprescriptible and perpetual. The heirs may exercise this right even if the work has fallen into the public domain or is not exploited. Economic rights give the author an exclusive property right that allows it to authorize or prohibit the reproduction and public performance of his work. This prerogative is acknowledged to the author throughout his life, and assigns during the seventy years following the death of the author. But moral and economic rights may be distinct. So, Peter Berger is the holder of moral rights of Mac Orlan's work but it is the mayor of Saint-Cyr-sur-Morin manage the economic rights of the author of "Dock of Goldsmiths." And, to complicate matters, in the audiovisual field, the authorship is known to all co-creators of the work: writer, screenwriter, author of the adaptation, the musical composition, adapted to the existing work, and director. So many people and so many heirs who may disagree.

This is also what blocks the DVD release of four films of Pagnol: "Regain", "Angela", "Women of the baker" and "Jofroi". Their common? Be adapted to all works of Jean Giono. Since the trial that the writer has brought to plagiarism Marcel Pagnol, the atmosphere has hardly relaxed among the heirs. "One was a man of letters, the other a merchant, a man of money, vituperates still Sylvie Durbret-Giono, sole heir of her father. However, I have nothing against the release of these films provided that the contract the two names and commercial rights and literary. "

If Nicolas Pagnol, support, within the Mediterranean Film Company, the memory of the work of his grandfather, prefers to remain evasive about the difficulties that oppose the daughter of Jean Giono, he does not hide his questions about this great protection for authors. "When you see that great catalog films are blocked for more than ten years, the State should be able to decide. "" The state has other roles, tempers Soulet Jerome, director at Gaumont video. But it could provide for mediation and arbitration. It is true that the moral rights invoked by the heirs of the fourth generation ... When there are different people in an estate, the real problems begin. But if it is that stories of money, there is always a solution. It is normal to have lively discussions, but at Gaumont, we avoid getting angry. Otherwise, the work is no longer visible. "
