Weinsteins to preserve Madadayo

The Weinstein Company has announced three new DVD labels with one of them, the Miriam Collection, being devoted to “restorations, prestige and foreign pics”.

The first title to be released is the 1961 epic El Cid, with Kurosawa’s 1993 Madadayo following next. This is more or less all the details I have so far, so I have no idea whether they will simply take an existing transfer, or actually attempt to restore the film (if there is anything to restore for such a recent movie).

Now, the question that comes to one’s mind is — might the Weinsteins be interested in saving Dersu Uzala?





Well that is good news. Even better if they save Dersu Uzala.
