Excellent quality transfer; the extras are probably of more interest to someone doing film or media studies as I found them very academic. But this is a wonderful film, the two central women are enchanting throughout. Nostalia for a world lost. The 4 and a half hours running time flies by. No guns, no violence, no crashing helicopters, so if you like Lara Croft or Die Hard, it may not be for you. Spoiler alert - they really do go boating. There is also a lot of depth to the film - you can warch it again and again and see and remember more.

I first saw this film in the seventies, in an almost empty cinema, with a very small audience, half of whom walked out during the intermission (!). But I loved it from the moment it started, never wanted it to end, have never forgotten it and would say, try it! Go with it and stay with it, live a different life where things work differently for just three short hours!!

Most of my favourite films are from the early 70s, far more artistic license was available to directors then than has ever been allowed before or since. The result was that lots of arty, beautiful, trippy and way out films were made.

The downside is that some pretentious, overly long and dull films were also made, and I personally would put Celine and Julie into this latter catergory. It drags on for 193 minutes and nothing happens (well nothing happened in the hour and a half or so I lasted before I started drifting in and out of sleep!)

We're treated to such delights as the camera constantly panning in on a window or a bed or other inanimate object and just stopping on it for minutes on end with nothing actually happening. I found it incredibly tiresome, and could have cut the 193 minute film down to a ten minute short without losing any plot whatsoever. I really wouldn't recommend this film to anyone other than insomniacs!
