Geez, who pissed on your breakfast? :p You're right about the Douchet mistake, I was typing it from memory. As for the booklet, it was, as I said, "slick and well-illustrated," but I didn't say it was in-depth or comprehensive. The set is a perfect edition by no means; the film was what mattered to me, and it looks fine. Considering that the producers of this disc may not have had access to the materials Criterion did, they did an okay job. I don't really care one way or the other about the interviews, as my understanding of spoken French is poor at best, even with Bill Krohn's atrocious accent, or lack thereof.
Why didn't they have a commentary? Maybe they weren't paying enough, or the guys didn't have time, or whatever. From what I've heard, most commentary tracks pay virtually nothing, and I doubt most people would want to go through the work to put together material for a decent track (and not just what comes off the top of their head) if they were getting a pittance for it.
I'm not surprised that this wasn't a real special edition, as very few, if any, American films get the Criterion treatment overseas, whether from lack of budget, studio politics, or whatever else.
