Camille Claudel (UK-Optimum) July 9th



Optimum are set to release Camille Claudel on July 9th in the UK. This is a confirmed date. I have emailed Mrs. Bara to see if there will be any extras on this disc and will update promptly when info becomes available.

Ciao,

official memo via the Times:

Optimum Home Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of three titles starring Gerard Depardieu on 9th July 2007. Buffet Froid (previously released by Warner) joins two titles making their UK DVD debuts in July - Helas Pour Moi and Camille Claudel.

Priced at £17.99 each, Buffet Froid is listed as “Fully re-mastered” while all titles are presented in their original aspect ratios with French Stereo sound and English subtitles. There are no extras.

Buffet Froid (1979)
From the Oscar-winning director of another Depardieu classic: Trop Belle Pour Toi, Betrand Blier brings us this blackly comic tale of a young unemployed man Alphonse, his neighbour, policeman Inspector Morvandieu and their unwitting involvement in a series of murders. An impressionistic look at life and alienation in modern city that also stars Bernard Blier, Carole Bouquet and Jean Carmet.

Helas Pour Moi (1993)
Based on the Greek myth of Amphitryon and Alcmene, Helas Pour Moi sees Jean-Luc Godard transplant the story to a tiny Swiss village, the story narrated by a publisher named Klimt who travels there to explore the veracity of the extraordinary tale. Depardieu plays Simon, whose body was apparently briefly inhabited by God wishing to experience physical love: having been inspired by the beauty of Simon’s wife Rachel. Within this narrative framework, Godard continues to push the boundaries of linear cinema with a contemplative, spiritual vision that is both perplexing and revelatory to the viewer whilst undoubtedly mesmeric in its imagery and tone.

Camille Claudel (1988)
Camille Claudel (Isabelle Adjani) was a gifted sculptress whose talents were perhaps never fully realized as she struggled for control over her artistic and emotional destiny following a tumultuous 15-year relationship with Auguste Rodin (Depardieu). This award-winning film tells the story of their affair, from Rodin’s hiring of Camille as his assistant, through her transformation to mistress and muse, to the eventual decline of their relationship and subsequently her mind.

I have the Optimum release. No complaints here at all. It's basically a port of the French Studio Canal release with optional English subtitles added. The print looks really good and it's the longer, European cut of the film. Definitely worth it!
