    I want to buy Paramount's region 2 DVD of ONE-EYED JACKS in France, but all the websites I've found that sell it are written in a language I can't read. Is there a French seller who has an English-language option on his website, does anyone know?

    This French site has French and English interfaces:
    http://www.cybercd.fr/. It does not have the title you are looking for.

    This Belgium based site sells French titles and has an English interface. It does not have the title you are looking for.

    Amazon.fr does not have an English interface but is quite comfortable to use because it works and looks exactly like amazon.com. I do not speak French but buy all my French DVDs there. You can set up your account information on amazon.com (if you do not have it set up already) and then use it on amazon.fr. Very convenient.

    My thanks to both of you for your prompt replies.

    Last night I came home with a small French-English dictionary, so transactions are possible now.

    Interesting that the French websites don't feel the need for an English language interface. More often than not, their domestic DVD's don't have an option for English subtitles. Perhaps it's a cultural thing, they don't recognize there's money to be made in exports ... ?

    Hi Richard,
    Great to see that you are making progress. Once you get over the initial culture/languare shock, you will be fine. I was surprised to find that amazon.fr has a customer service available in English and their response was very prompt.

    Good luck!

    Irina
