A boxed set of eight films from the French auteur is planned for Blu-ray in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion is preparing 'Pierre Etaix' for Blu-ray on April 23.
A French comedy master whose films went unseen for decades as a result of legal tangles, director-actor Pierre Etaix is a treasure the cinematic world has rediscovered and taken up with relish.
The 2-Disc Blu-ray set will feature 1080p video, uncompressed mono soundtracks, and supplements will include: New interview with director Pierre Etaix; New video introductions by Etaix to seven of the films; Pierre Etaix, un destin animé (2010), a portrait of the life and work of the director by his wife, Odile Etaix; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic David Cairns.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.95.
