    Just in case it hasn’t been mentioned.The std Blu-ray left a lot to be desired as regards picture quality but the restored version has a noticeably superior quality and arguably better English subtitles.
    It has to be ordered directly from Amazon.fr or much more expensively from (strangely)Amazon.com
    It’s well worth it if you love both films.

    Thanks, Brian. I've ordered it from amazon.fr, for 18.86 euros including delivery - a bargain, considering I paid £9.99 each for the Jean & Manon Pathé DVDs, back in 2001. :)

    Thanks for this. I'm assuming the Amazon.fr version comes with English subtitles?!?!

    Interesting and you are correct regarding the comparisons and it nearly stopped me ordering as I also thought them poor when I saw them a few weeks ago but I took a chance after reading International - Just purchased 4K restoration of JEAN DE FLORETTE/ MANON OF THE SPRING.
    I’m so glad I did as ,on actual viewing,I find a substantial improvement in PQ over the original French bd release and the US Shout release which I also possess,especially in the outdoor scenes. . . but people see different things at times so. . .

    No English subs, no French subs, no Stella Artois ads. :)
