Three Maurice Pialat Films Coming Up

Posted October 19, 2012 06:00 PM by Webmaster

GaumontFrench distributors Gaumont have revealed that they are preparing for Blu-ray release three films by acclaimed director Maurice Pialat: Loulou (1980), A nos amours a.k.a To Our Loves (1983), and Van Gogh (1991). All three films are set to be released on January 9, 2013.

Note: In the U.S., A nos amours is available on DVD via the Criterion Collection (see our listing here). Loulou and Van Gogh are currently out of print.

Loulou

One of French director Maurice Pialat's most sexually charged films, Loulou is a masterpiece of unabashed eroticism and authentic romance. When married woman Nelly (Isabelle Huppert) meets Loulou (Gerard Depardieu), a charming leather-jacketed stud in a crowded Paris disco, she can't resist his lustful style and returns home with him. Loulou turns out to be as passionate in bed as on a dance floor and the film embarks on their freewheeling relationship.

A nos amours

With his raw style of filmmaking, Maurice Pialat has been called the John Cassavetes of French cinema, and the scorching A nos amours is one of his greatest achievements. In a revelatory film debut, the dynamic, fresh-faced Sandrine Bonnaire plays Suzanne, a fifteen-year-old Parisian who embarks on a sexual rampage in an effort to separate herself from her overbearing, beloved father (played with astonishing magnetism by Pialat himself), ineffectual mother, and brutish brother. A tender character study that can erupt in startling violence, A nos amours is one of the high-water marks of eighties French cinema.

Van Gogh

Jacques Dutronc (C'est La Vie, Place Vend˘me, Mado) stars as Vincent Van Gogh, the introverted and tormented post-impressionist artist, in this strikingly beautiful and critically acclaimed masterpiece. Nominated for the prestigious Palme d'Or Award at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival (Maurice Pialat) and winner of the CÚsar Award for Best Actor (Jacques Dutronc), Van Gogh is a dramatic an moving portrait of one of the most beloved and influential artists of our time.

Excellent news, I had no idea Pialat made a film about Van Gogh. Will definitely be looking to pick that one up at least.

Hoping that the guys from Gaumont abandon their DNR transfers. It seems astonishing to me that they spend money making good scans and ruin them in postproduction.

Great news IF they've learned their lessons from past transfers.

There are not that much DNRed transfers. You guys should have a look at all their releases before saying such insanities...

I did quite a bit of work on Van Gogh, its a very interesting movie but not one I expected to turn up on BD.
