The Retour de Flamme collection takes its name because of an audacious bet: that of preserving and saving unknown films, destined to fall into oblivion. Divided into two identities, blue (French feature films) and orange (silent feature films), it goes with a film catalog ranging from light comedies to dramas, adventure films and cloak-and-dagger films. A delicious trip in time for the whole family!



For over 15 years, Lobster Films and its partners have been commited to film restoration and to the editing of great movie classics in their completely restored versions. Man with a Movie Camera in 2014, L'Inhumaine by Marcel L'Herbier in 2015, The General in 2016, The King of Kings by Cecil B. DeMille in 2017... All these films have undergone a real renaissance thanks to the latest digital technologies. With music settings by great composers like Robert Israel and Joe Hisaishi, they were then edited into prestigious boxsets and completed with numerous bonuses explaining the course of their restoration.



Throughout the construction of the Lobster Films catalog we have acquired the rights to hundreds of images and photographs often accompanying the release of the films. These exceptional documents are an invitation to travel, from the privacy of the studios to the splendour of the film sets. Discover some of these unique images in our postcards collection, which includes restored photographs from Charlie Chaplin to Buster Keaton, King Kong and Romy Schneider!
