Pretty Packaging: BODY DOUBLE Gets A French Edition To Double-Dip For

Editor, Europe; Rotterdam, The Netherlands (@ardvark23)
Earlier this year, French distributor Carlotta Films announced that they would be releasing a new series of "Ultra Collector" boxsets. Aiming at four releases a year, each of these would feature a remastered edition of a beloved (yet underrated) film, and include a 200-page hardcover book.

The first of these editions would be Brian De Palma's Body Double, to be released in early December. Carlotta Films kept their promise, and the film can now be bought with a new 4K restoration, as a cheap regular edition or a more expensive Ultra Collector Edition, limited to 3.000 pieces.

That edition arrived this week, and wow... as a fan of the film, it makes me very happy. It isn't English-friendly (though the film itself of course is), with the book and the subtitles only being in French, but still... if Carlotta Films really ends up releasing four of these a year, I may need to reserve some shelf space.

Here is a gallery of shots. Click on the edge of the pictures to scroll through them, or at the center of each to see a bigger version.

And this is what these editions look like: a hardcover book in a hard cardboard slipcase, with the discs being held in the book.
