That's a shame since the English dub is pretty good.

Only logical, business-wise, the US rights now recently being acquired by an American company...

No, just a little bonus gift. Before that Blu-ray was announced, some friends at another forum were so tired
of those old DVD's that we all threw in some dineros and we scanned my 35mm print, just for us...

Now it is just interesting to compare the look of the two masters - the new one for the Blu-ray,
and my 1969 print, which represents the look the film had when it played in theaters. Because
you almost never get the old 35mm theatrical-print-look on modern HD masters.
Just a gag... (the print isn't very good: scratches and missing/damaged scenes. But the colors
are still all there.). It has slightly more picture information - but only due to the fact that I masked
my Apple ProRes to achieve maximum image information (don't caring if unwanted stuff pops up
occasionally at the image border area...)
Fabulous idea. This release just got interesting.  Afro

That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Yeh - no kidding! Mike's gonna make me fork out twice for the BD now. Once for this release, and once for the inevitable 4k release with English audio included. That is of course unless Mike can attach himself to any forthcoming English-friendly release...

Here's the report:

How do you know they won't be using the recent 4k remastering for the Blu-ray? (I know a BD is not 4k but the resolution of the remastering itself can affect the end product as it appears on the BD)

Screen Daily says "Film Movement will bring The Great Silence to North American screens for the very first time".  That would be interesting; I have an older DVD, but Great Silence, original Django, and Five Man Army are three that even I never saw in the theater (didn't play in Arizona).

But the colors are still all there.

Someone's posted a comparison here:

However, as a SWDB member pointed out, the French DVD still seems to hold its own:
