I watched last night,a brilliant gay movie called ETE 85 (SUMMER OF 85). It's the latest film from from French director Francios Ozon. A beautifully tender and moving love story. Has any other reader seen this film?

I saw it twice at cinema here in France earlier in the year when it opened and yesterday ordered the Blu Ray that is coming out on the 17th So I can watch it for a third, fourth, fifth time! I absolutely adored it and am so glad it’s made it outside of France. I became besotted with with Felix Lefebvre who is simply stunning in the lead role.

François Ozon is one if my favourite directors, who has never made the same film twice, yet always comes up with interesting often provocative subjects. The New Girlfriend which is totally original, A Curtain Raiser, Time To Leave, another favourite, with wonderful Jeanne Moreau, and the glorious Frantz. Not all have gay themes but he usually has some delicious eye candy involved, Pierre Niney, Louis Garel, Raphaël Personnaz, Romain Duris for example, along with wonderful stars like the afore mentioned a Jeanne Moreau, Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert.

I'm keen to pick this up on blu-ray but it appears that the French release does not have English subtitles and I can't speak French.
Poor you. Has it not been released in Canada where I’m sure it would have both a French and a English subtitles. In France we get a French subtitles for deaf and hard of hearing. But even if you don’t speak French the visuals are worth just looking at!

Is there not a way of downloading subtitles and somehow projecting them onto a film one is watching off a disc? Smart tvs and modern technology must have found a way of doing this, or am I being too optimistic?

Just watched the Blu Ray that arrived this morning. Beautiful transfer packed with extras. Of course if you don’t speak French you won’t want this French release. But I so love this movie!

I get really annoyed when there’s a film I want to see and it’s only released in dvd. Then I see it on an internet site available to download in 1080p. Of course it’s illegal, which makes it even more frustrating. Why can’t they release it on Blu Ray too? Latest film in this category is Benjamin with Colin Morgan that’s had such great reviews.

Just been offered an illegal torrent with English subtitles and 1080p so there must be a Blu Ray out there somewhere. Me I think it shameful how people expect to see stuff without paying anything. How do film makers make more films if the ones they’ve already made make no money? Answer is, they don’t. Then what? Rant over.

Different from Others. One of the first (if not the first) gay films ever produced, and a landmark German silent film starring Conrad Veidt. Free stream. Here's the link:

All you have to do is register on the UCLA site and watch their restoration of the film.

Fantastic. Thank you, Bujaki! I have the DVD, but would love a restored version, even if only via streaming.
