Complete films of Pierre Etaix restored

#1 Post by Stefan Andersson » Mon Jul 05, 2010 6:43 am

All films by French comedian and clown Pierre Etaix have been restored, following a long legal battle over rights. They're re-released this summer in France. A DVD release is planned, by Carlotta I think. Seems like a good idea for a CC Eclipse box.

Feature films: Le Soupirant (1963), Yoyo (1965), Tant qu'on a la santé (1966), Le Grand Amour (1969) and Pays de cocagne (1971). Shorts: Rupture, Heureux anniversaire and En pleine forme (first public showing).

I saw some of these when Channel 4 showed several Etaix films in their very early days (which would be 1983 or maybe even Nov/Dec 1982). I can't remember which ones, though Yoyo was certainly one of them - I do remember enjoying them though.

I saw Heureux anniversaire at Bologna 2010 and loved it. Simply one of the greatest comedy shorts ever made, a bit in Tati's style.
Etaix briefly appears in Fellini's I clowns (1970), since he was married with Annie Fratellini, famous clown Paul Fratellini's grandaughter.

No, sorry, apparently no English subs for the Etaix box.
