    It is interesting to know that the movie Les amants de Montparnasse (alternate title Montparnasse 19, English title Modigliani of Montparnasse) is available on Blu ray at Amazon Japan. This movie was never released on DVD or Blu ray, not even in France. The movie was directed in 1958 by Jacques Becker who also directed Casque d'or (US title Golden Marie), Touchez pas au grisbi (US title Grisbi), Le Trou (US title The Night Watch). The players are Gerard Philipe (one of the greatest French actors ever), Anouk Aimee, Lilli Palmer, Lino Ventura. The picture quality is very good, the audio is original French PCM mono, removable subtitle is Japanese. For the people who don't speak French, there is an English subtitle available at www.opensubtitles.org, so you can make your own backup copy with English subtitle. Of course, if you know how to do it. The movie describes the last year in life of famous French painter Modigliani. Celebrated after his death, but very poor and underrated during his life.
