    I believe Miramax owns the rights to these. [​IMG] Anyway, I heard these were in the works so where are they and when are they coming? C'mon, I love these movies!

    I heard tales that Mark Rance did a massive documentary for this 3 disc set but there is no word on whether any of this will see the light of day or when.
    And staying on the Kieslowski track, when the Paramount license expires, if the 3 Colors trilogy are not out by then, Miramax may as well package them with THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE and then really make us happy.

    Count me in.
    I couldn't care less about all the other trilogies... but I'm dying for the Three Colours trilogy.

    I believe that fellow member Pascal A reported that Miramax dropped Mark Rance from the project and decided to go another way.

    I've got to admit that I've never gotten around to seeing these movies.
    Yet, upon hearing that they were coming to DVD soon they moved into my list of titles to purchase when they become available for preorder, based on universally positive reviews alone.
    So, it would be nice if they'd hit the shelves soon, so I could wipe out another gaping hole in my film viewing history.

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    I want these on dvd so bad! If paramount still has video rights to DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE then they damn well should release it, As it was easily one of the three best movies of the entire 90's.
    It would be very nice to see the Kieslowski documentary / interview . "I'm so so" Packaged with one of his films.

    According to the latest update in the Digital Bits' Rumor Mill, the Three Colors Trilogy is definitely in the works. No street date was given but I would assume they are coming sometime next year. 2002 could be a very good year!
