THE DARDENNE BROS. ARE COMING TO THE CRITERION COLLECTION!
been waiting way too long for this one.
the top image is a tease that Criterion posted on their Facebook page this afternoon. the bottom image is a full frame from the Dardenne brothers’ breakthrough film, ROSETTA (1999). Criterion will release it on DVD and Blu-ray this August.
while it may not have been the Dardenne film that i would have chosen (THE SON, duh), it’s still a remarkable bit of storytelling that was deserving of its Palme D’Or, and it allows one of the most accomplished filmmaking duos in the cinema’s history to take their rightful place alongside the other legendary auteurs whose work has been released under the Criterion banner. expect an official announcement on May 15.
