After screening a newly restored 35mm print of this French classic the other night, I emailed Jon Mulvany to ask if Criterion would be revisiting the DVD with a new transfer from the restored elements. The answer came back "YES." He told me this has already been announced on Criterion's website, but I don't see it there. Either way, he said it was fine to pass this info along. The new transfer will also feature the original French opening title sequence (which I can tell you is quite different from the English version). Look for the theatrical re-release at a cool cinema near you any time. Look for the new DVD in early 2003. For those of you who haven't seen the film, I highly recommend it.
