Good news for Żuławski fans
The studio Mondo Vision looks to follow up their release of Andrzej Żuławski's La femme publique, which they released in limited and standard releases last November, with a number of the director's other films. They had already acquired L'important c'est d'aimer, with Romy Schneider, and L'amour braque, with Sophie Marceau, but they've added six more of Żuławski's films to their roster (unfortunately his last film La fidélité is not one of them). They are La note bleue [The Blue Note], Diabeł [The Devil], Possession, Trzecia część nocy [The Third Part of the Night], Szamanka [Shaman Woman] and Na srebrnym globie [The Silver Globe]. Facets previously released disappointing editions of The Devil and The Silve Globe (with the title Under the Silver Globe), so pristine transfers are something to definitely look forward to. This would also explain why Blue Underground canceled their re-release of Possession last year. As soon as any of these are announced for purchase, I'll be sure to let you know.
