    As well as an interesting title:

    If I counted correctly, there will be seven other films in this set which weren't listed.

    L'Enfer was once put out by FOX LORBER-it was a horribly compressed disc with macroblocking and other artifacts...
    Hope its done right this time.

    Except The Color Of Lies, all other Chabrol DVDs were available as a French 5 DVD second Chabrol box set from Mk2 (with Masques) with English subtitles.

    The first Chabrol box set from MK2 came without English subtitles.
