Conclusion: Having already seen the ITV Studios Home Entertainment and Carlotta Films releases of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp , I feel comfortable stating that Criterion's upcoming release is the one to own. Similar to the other two releases Criterion's release uses as a foundation the terrific new 2012 4K restoration by the Film Foundation, but it has the best selection of supplemental features. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Conclusion: If you are a French speaker, you absolutely need to have this beautiful Blu-ray release of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp from Carlotta Films in your collection. Recently restored in 4K, the film looks stunning on Blu-ray. This release also contains an excellent video interview with Thelma Schoonmaker Powell which is not included on the UK release. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?
