    This is just the current UK discs packaged together, not a new transfer or anything.

    Damn. These films desperately need new transfers and some quality extras.

    Gordon (or anyone) Are these transfers markedly better than the R1 MGMs?

    Ive heard some claim the Pathe transfers are "Beautiful!"-but I note they were made in 2000-and encoding has come quite a ways since then.

    Still might be worth it at the price-before, I think they were about $25 USD each

    OK-I see the RENN versions were remastered in March 2004-deleting the earlier versions,
    Part of the 'Claude Berri Collection'

    DVD.fr gave the image a 4.5/5 to JDF;

    We'll assume MANON is the same-
    though it is not yet reviewed.

    Damn! 22.01 euros seems to be a popular price in France-even if the film has benn out on disc for 5 years or more.

    Unfortunately, LA REINE MARGOT has not been remastered.

    I know little French, but have bought films with no subtitles at all, just to have the longer version of them:

    LA REINE MARGOT
    LE HUSSARD SUR LA TOIT
    LA REPENTIE

    but what is it about the French where they refuse to put English subs on French film DVDs?
    In the name of International relations!
