Cinetrove International

#1 Post by domino harvey » Fri Oct 12, 2018 12:27 am

New label looking to release overlooked French films in English-friendly Blu-ray editions, with a first release being the Bardot vehicle Futures vedettes. Their site is WordPress-only right now ( :oops: ) but the upcoming slate is ambitious and promising

It is ambitious (26 movies !) but I'm not sure many of them are that interesting.
Note also that in some cases, some of these are already out in France, either by Gaumont or Pathé, possibly in region free BDs with Eng subs (L'assassinat du père Noël and Goupi mains rouges definitely are).

Add to that list La Vérité de Bébé Donge. This Simenon adaptation by Decoin with Gabin and Darrieux is a must but similarly available with eng subs from Gaumont. The other Darrieux -Decoin vehicle the 1941 Premier Rendezvous is not available with subs but of lesser interest unless seeing a younger Darrieux ride out Ledoux's modest sexual deceit rings your bell. The other Simenon adaptation with Raimu M. Souris is intriguing and otherwise unavailable. As for the 2 x L'Herbier I don't know these but will see what this new label's track record is like re quality and extras before taking the plunge

I ranked that Doniol-Valcroze film dead last in my look at first features of Nouvelle Vague directors, but I still support it getting a release, if just to start offering American viewers a more complete picture of the movement

Yeah, I wouldn't buy it for a penny, but I hope libraries do to give some much needed context. Not only good movies deserve releases.

Haven’t heard of most of these, but always exciting to see a new company with interest in previously unreleased films spring up. Still so many holes in the DVD/Blu-ray market.
