Deneuve in 5 wonderful transfers

"FORT SAGANNE is a long, grand epic which must be seen in widescreen. It's really a Gerard Depardieu movie
and he is magnificent as a legionnaire in French-occupied Sahara. LE SAUVAGE is a romantic comedy which is one of my favorite Deveuve films. Catherine Deneuve necessarily enters runaway Yves Montand's placid life
and wreaks havoc. Chemistry again in LE CHOC with Alain Delon as a professional hitman who meets Deneuve when he is hiding out. I had not seen HOTEL DES AMERIQUES before. While I still enjoyed this drama, I could not eventually understand the stubborn fascination of the Deneuve character with Patrick Dewaere (who died tragically young in real life). In MANON 70, Deneuve cannot commit to any one man till she meets Sami Frey, then . . .
Here's hoping Lionsgate produces and releases a collection of films starring another French legend -
Terrific transfers, great films!

"After I couldn't get through to the amazon site (my ISP had connection problems), I purchased the C.D. set locally and have already watched most of it. The transfer to DVD is really good, with rich color and crystal-clear images. Although most of the footage is English-subtitled, I had no problem enjoying what I have watched of the five movies. Nice packaging, too!"
