Michel, it sounds like the film was possibly tape-spliced, and
transferred using the omega-wrap on a Cintel telecine.  What can
happen is the extra thickness of the spliced area, when encountering
the capstan, causes (I believe) a slight speed variation, resulting in
the picture distortion.  The 'Z-wrap' will sometimes improve this
situation, but of course may cause an optical audio track to go out of
