Two modern French classics, Jacques Rivette's "Celine and Julie Go Boating" and Alan Tanner's "For Jonah, Who Will Be 25 In The Year 2000" don't seem to be on DVD -- or are they? Does anyone out there share my love for these two wonderful films -- and my incredulity that they aren't available?

According to the imdb they're only out on VHS. Add them to the DVD MIA thread!

Celine and Julie Go Boating is only available on DVD in France (R2) but Jonah Who Will Be 25 in the Year 2000 isn't available on DVD anywhere! I loved Jonah when it first came out and would love to see it again.

Consider it done.

Hmmm. I love French Films but if these guys aren't out on DVD, I am not sure I'll be able to find them.

As opposed to some people who are already extremely broad horizontally?
Yes, that means you, Totoro!

Isn't there some DVD supreme court or something we can appeal to to get these released?

Of course, if you haven't seen them, a VHS would do, but...

New Yorker owns the rights to Celine and Julie Go Boating, and have responded to all queries about its status that no DVD is being planned.

Feel free to email them with your desire to see it released. If they get enough people asking for it, it'll happen.
