Germany released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: French ( Mono ), English ( Subtitles ), German ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Box Set, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: ***WARNING***Spectre does NOT contain English subtitles***Jacques Rivette's grandest and boldest experiment to date (based on Balzac's L'Histore des Treize) enrages some spectators because it gives them so much to cope with: 253 minutes of improvisation by at least half of the best New Wave actors, edited and arranged so that sometimes it's telling a complex mystery story - about thirteen conspirators, two theatre groups, and a couple of crazed outsiders - while the rest of the time it's telling a realistic story about the same people that deliberately makes no sense at all. Not so much a digest of Rivette's legendary 12-hour version (hardly ever screened, its title is Out 1: Noli Me Tangere) as a ghost and a reworking of some of the same material ('a critique', Rivette himself says), it's a challenging and terrifying journey for all who can bear with it. As Richard Roud put it: 'Cinema will never be the same, and neither will I.' ...Out 1 (Noli me tangere / Spectre) - 5-DVD Box Set ( Out 1: Noli me tangere / Out 1: Spectre ) ( Out One - Don't Touch Me )

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had already purchased this item from Amazon.fr, which included English subtitles on Noli me Tangere, but not on Spectre. The product description for this item at Amazon.co.uk said: Out 1: Spectre, with English subtitles. This was highly misleading. It is the exact same edition as the one I got from France, and does not have English subtitles on Spectre. Please note that the product description has changed since I bought the item. It now claims only German subtitles. English-speaking people will buy this item based on the information provided on subtitles. I think the original posting misled me, and perhaps other customers.
If you are satisfied with English subtitles only on Noli me tangere, this is a good purchase, because it is not available, to my knowledge, in any other version. The image is acceptable, but not great.

Format: DVD
This four-hour journey begins with a strong sense of place, in the heady Paris of the 70s. Two theatrical groups are rehearsing classical plays by Aeschylus, turning them inside out, exploring how bodies can accommodate text to manifest new forms, sounds, synthesis (as in Grotowski, Brook, Living Theater).

Add two outsiders: a young man (Jean-Pierre Leaud) canvassing sidewalk cafés with his harmonica, playing a deaf-mute role to increase sympathetic handouts; a young woman duping foolish men out of cash (Juliet Berto, her hilarious, endlessly mugging face, captured for all time yet again). He gets mysterious notes with texts (excerpts from Balzac and Lewis Carroll) that apparently allude to a gang of "Thirteen" operating secretly in Paris, or: perhaps not... She rips off a cache of letters on the sly and reading them at home discovers -- conspiratorial activity? The two theatre groups each have a director and five actors: six plus six equals twelve. Is modest Pauline (Bulle Ogier), who runs a boutique which is an intersection for clandestine encounters, a possible "thirteen"?

A great magician, Jacques Rivette has created a masterwork (just before Celine and Julie Go Boating). His protocol here: the performers were given the basics of each scene, then had to improvise their way through. The resulting film is a dazzling process-oriented experience: a sheer delight as one becomes more intrigued, not only with what is created by the performers, but in the way it arises: one moment all surface, then shadows of meaning, or glimpses of motivation, then recurring withdrawals into the safety of silence. There appears the mere intention of conspiracy just in the mode of interactions alone, yet which are all beautifully and deliberately underplayed, enough to keep us off-balance.

DVD information 11 Oct. 2014
By Y.P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The previous reviewer seems to be reviewing the "short" version of Out 1 only, and says nothing about the original version and contents of this DVD set. The fact is that this set contains both the original and the "short" versions of Out 1, named "Out 1, noli me tangere" (Out 1, don't touch me) and "Out 1: Spectre" respectively. The original version is a serial of 8 episodes, with run time ranging from 70 to 105 minutes each (after 4% PAL speedup), and the total run time 12 hours and 23 minutes (with PAL speedup, that makes it 7 minutes shy of 13 hours when played in the theater). Spectre lasts about 4 hours.

This set consists of 5 DVDs. Each of the first 4 discs contains 2 episodes from "noli me tangere" and some segments of interviews with the director Jacques Rivette; the last disc houses the Spectre in its entirety. The good news is that there ARE English (and German) subtitles for the original 13 hour version; the bad news: Spectre and interviews are NOT English subtitled, although anyone speaking French or reading German can easily enjoy them. These DVDs are PAL encoded, but are region-free. A good BD/DVD player (e.g., anything by Oppo) will play these discs. There are some minor errors in the transfer (minor cropping of sides and stretching in the first episode) and there is minimal, if any, remastering.(*1) However, the film itself is a masterpiece, and an incredibly pleasurable one! If you have seen "Celine and Julie Go Boating" and "La Belle Noiseuse" and think you know Rivette's films, wait until you see this!

Strongly recommended for anyone who is interested in art films.(*2)

-------------------
(*1) Personally, I am grateful to this German company Absolut Medien for making the original 13-hour version available on DVD, and am willing to overlook the minor errors. By the way, there are apparently(?) intended black frames in Episode 8 throughout, but this is not mentioned in any review I read. Wonder why....

(*2) You can get it for just over $50 from Amazon's Deutschland site, and that's how I got mine.

The Mystery of Creation 20 Jun. 2014
By TravellerThruKalpas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This four-hour journey begins with a strong sense of place, in the heady Paris of the 70s. Two theatrical groups are rehearsing classical plays by Aeschylus, turning them inside out, exploring how bodies can accommodate text to manifest new forms, sounds, synthesis (as in Grotowski, Brook, Living Theater).

Add two outsiders: a young man (Jean-Pierre Leaud) canvassing sidewalk cafés with his harmonica, playing a deaf-mute role to increase sympathetic handouts; a young woman duping foolish men out of cash (Juliet Berto, her hilarious, endlessly mugging face, captured for all time yet again). He gets mysterious notes with texts (excerpts from Balzac and Lewis Carroll) that apparently allude to a gang of "Thirteen" operating secretly in Paris, or: perhaps not... She rips off a cache of letters on the sly and reading them at home discovers -- conspiratorial activity? The two theatre groups each have a director and five actors: six plus six equals twelve. Is modest Pauline (Bulle Ogier), who runs a boutique which is an intersection for clandestine encounters, a possible "thirteen"?

A great magician, Jacques Rivette has created a masterwork (just before Celine and Julie Go Boating). His protocol here: the performers were given the basics of each scene, then had to improvise their way through. The resulting film is a dazzling process-oriented experience: a sheer delight as one becomes more intrigued, not only with what is created by the performers, but in the way it arises: one moment all surface, then shadows of meaning, or glimpses of motivation, then recurring withdrawals into the safety of silence. There appears the mere intention of conspiracy just in the mode of interactions alone, yet which are all beautifully and deliberately underplayed, enough to keep us off-balance. Secrets, conspiracy, paranoia, messages in code, missing (unseen) characters, the "Thirteen" -- just how much is true?

Exploring this process of spontaneous creation, especially in the interaction of so many individuals, creates cross-currents which flow through and envelop the viewer, irresistible and challenging. Even in different combinations -- of two, three or more characters at once -- there are charges sent through the scenes, which take their course and dissipate, sometimes leaving us feeling nearer to some degree of truth, at least momentarily. These depths of improvisation evoke a tenet found in shamanistic practice: that effectiveness is the measure of truth. But if so, then whom do we trust? Any of these characters? Some? Surely not Rivette, a conjurer of illusions?

Eventually in the second half, the m.o. of Rivette and Co. gradually becomes luminous. For example, in a scene near the Seine: as the wonderful Michel Lonsdale speaks with a possible conspirator, his discourse of artifice and invention almost clouds with evasion, is almost a coded language. He gradually (perhaps even unwittingly) reveals in his speech, a searching creative finesse, stretching the imagination and attention through pause... after pause... until even one sentence is finally accomplished. A profound insight arises: when using words, even with utmost caution and selectivity, we may find out what is in our control but, more strikingly, also what is beyond it... While we still don't know how far we can trust him, the calibre of this high wire act, which everyone has to manage throughout, reveals a brilliant transparency at work, which is le grand manouevre of Out One: Spectre in general.

These dangerous games of hide-and-seek truly take a game cast, and it's here in spades: Leaud, Ogier, Berto, Lonsdale, along with Bernadette Lafont, Francoise Fabian, Michele Moretti, Jean-Francois Stevenin and the rest are all up to their necks, some even over their heads... Who else but Rivette can display this mystery of creation unfolding, maintain its delicate balances for four enthralling hours, then return us to a sense of place which is completely emptied of everything -- so that we can go home, released and refreshed... even while the enigma remains intact.
