    Two titles Criterion released movie only LDs of back in the day. I had hoped the DVDs would be Criterion also.

    I've been waiting for Belle de Jour, but I fear Disney will just include an English dub, and not the original French. Ugh.

    DVD Planet lists both as having french with english subs. No mention of a dub. Belle de Jour also has commentary and trailers apparently, which is more than the Criterion LD had. A great pair of films, but I'm suspecting we won't get anamorphic transfers, which is a shame, as both were 1.66:1 on the LDs.

    This may be the best news I've gotten all year. Even if Belle De Jour isn't anamorphic, I will be buying. My favorite film is finally coming....

    Belle de Jour is a favourite of mine also. Surprised, though, that Criterion isn't putting it out. Oh well, I'm buying.
