2.0 out of 5 stars for fans only May 13 2010
For fans of Catherine Deneuve (who is in her gorgeous prime) or lovers of French Cinema these 5 films may be of interest, but unfortunately they don't bear repeating. In Manon 70 she flip-flops between men, trying to decide between love and money - it's all fairly ineffective, except for an almost expected twist ending (2 1/2 stars). Le Choc is more intriguing and co-stars Alain Delon as a retiring hit-man, who not surprisingly seduces the wife (Deneuve) of a disgruntled farmer (3 stars). Le Sauvage is a farcical comedy, where a kooky Deneuve (fleeing from both a crazed fiancé and angry business associate) involves seeming opposite, Yves Montand. (nice scenery - 3 stars) Hotel Des Ameriques is the unnecessary story of a dismal relationship between two forgettable characters (1 1/2 stars). Fort Saganne is a period war epic (French Sahara) starring Gerard Depardieu, and since Deneuve's appearance is minimal, the film's inclusion in this set is surprising. Of the 3 hr. epic, she appears in a couple of scenes in Part II only (as a Depardieu love interest) with less than 15 min. total screen time. The film itself has some great settings and scenery but is too long and could have used better direction (2 1/2 stars). Unfortunately there is no bonus dvd material, and though there are a couple of worthwhile films here, overall the set is questionable - maybe wait for a really good sale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deneuve in 5 wonderful transfers June 12 2008
By Victor Danemore - Published on Amazon.com
FORT SAGANNE is a long, grand epic which must be seen in widescreen. It's really a Gerard Depardieu movie
and he is magnificent as a legionnaire in French-occupied Sahara. LE SAUVAGE is a romantic comedy which is one of my favorite Deveuve films. Catherine Deneuve necessarily enters runaway Yves Montand's placid life
and wreaks havoc. Chemistry again in LE CHOC with Alain Delon as a professional hitman who meets Deneuve when he is hiding out. I had not seen HOTEL DES AMERIQUES before. While I still enjoyed this drama, I could not eventually understand the stubborn fascination of the Deneuve character with Patrick Dewaere (who died tragically young in real life). In MANON 70, Deneuve cannot commit to any one man till she meets Sami Frey, then . . .

Here's hoping Lionsgate produces and releases a collection of films starring another French legend -
Michele Morgan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific transfers, great films! June 11 2008
By Dee J. - Published on Amazon.com
After I couldn't get through to the amazon site (my ISP had connection problems), I purchased the C.D. set locally and have already watched most of it. The transfer to DVD is really good, with rich color and crystal-clear images. Although most of the footage is English-subtitled, I had no problem enjoying what I have watched of the five movies. Nice packaging, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definition Of Beauty Aug. 27 2012
By William Amazzini - Published on Amazon.com
Foreign films seem to be few and far between because of limited distribution and we have companies like Lionsgate who have acquired the negatives and rights of some great rare gems. This collection not only highlights the talent and beauty of Catherine Deneuve but also gives us a great insight on basic French filmmaking. With a diverse series of titles, this collection shows how Deneuve could light up the screen in every thing she was in. This set is represented by comedy: Director Jean Paul Rappeneau's 'LE SAUVAGE'-1975 starring Yves Montand playing Cary Grant to Denueve's Katherine Hepburn character with a cameo appearance by American actress Dana Wynter, Swinging Sixties Op Art utilizing the Manon Lascout legend and upgrading it to a sexy affair in Director Jean Aurel's 'MANON 70'- 1968 also cameoing another American actor Robert Webber and gorgeous color photography by Edmond Richard, Crime thrillers such as Director Robin Davis's underrated 'LE CHOC'- 1982 with a great performance by Alain Delon playing an assassin wanting to quit the business, Psychological pot boilers such as Director Andre Techine's off beat 'HOTEL DES AMERIQUES'- 1981, and lastly Epic films as in Director Alain Corneau's three hour opus 'FORT SAGANNE'- 1984 where Catherine is reduced to a 20 minute cameo and giving another shattering beauty Sophie Marceau in an early performance much more screen time sharing things with actors Gerard Depardieu and Philippe Noiret. They also boast great music scores by France's lead composers Michel Legrand for 'LE SAUVAGE' and Philippe Sarde who does 'LE CHOC' , 'HOTEL DES AMERIQUES' and the magnificent score to 'FORT SAGANNE'. Each film is presented in its original aspect ratio in French with English Subtitles but no extras. Kudos to Lionsgate for resurrecting these fine titles for American audiences and showing the rare beauty of an exceptional woman.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good movie compilation Oct. 15 2012
By M. - Published on Amazon.com
I'll recognize that most of these DVD compilations are typically known for including a bunch of unappreciated works and probably one good film. Ok so you don't get Belle Du jour, the last metro, repulsion, or even the hunger in this one but it is still worth checking out. For that reason, I would say that's what sets Catherine Deneuve apart from all the other actors even at their worst.

Allow me to discuss briefly most of the films included in this collection.

Manon 70: It's a fun movie to watch. Perhaps it drags a little but you get to see Catherine portray a playful vixen.

Le sauvage: Catherine makes a great pair with Yves Montand in this one! Seeing the film being shot in Caracas Venezuela in the 70's was especially a treat for me personally.

Hôtel des amériques: I think this one is considered the best one in this set by most people. I think it was a good film. Dramatic and icy at times. The story is definitely intriguing and has a fine ending.

Le choc: Many would argue that there is a better film of Catherine with Alain Delon out there called Un Flic directed by Jean Pierre Melville. While I'll agree with that notion, I'll also say that Le Choc wasn't necessarily bad. It's a gangster story with a dramatic romantic flair.
