Ahhh, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg! Hopefully a blu-ray announcement will follow soon.
I was so excited about "Umbrellas" I almost forgot to inquire about the screening of The Last Emperor in 3D.
What is that about?

I'll second a hope for a Blu of "Umbrellas"!

"The Last Emperor 3D"??? Is that a typo?

@JRob: The Last Emperor 3D is NOT a typo/mistake!

The project was initiated quite some time ago:

Interesting to see Fedora on that list of restorations. Nice list overall. Of course we all hope for eventual Blu ray releases. :-)
