My Favorite Season

DVD (Letterbox / Dolby 5.1 / Stereo)

View All Available Formats & Editions


This Fox Lorber DVD release of the exquisite My Favorite Season is far from perfect, but at least this complex and fascinating movie is available for home viewing in the digital format. André Téchiné is famous for employing extended tracking shots in his pictures, and the cinematography of Thierry Arbogast (renowned for shooting most of Luc Besson's features) is exceptionally beautiful. Their work is presented in a clean widescreen transfer, but since it wasn't done using the superior anamorphic process, there are some moments of image pixilation (in plain English: the televised image breaks up on occasion). Thankfully, this doesn't detract from the enjoyment of this rich and somewhat unsettling drama. A movie that deals with family and the natural (but potentially unsettling and harmful) bonds that exist between siblings, My Favorite Season merits multiple viewings, and whatever the disc's flaws, it's good to have this Fox Lorber DVD release.
