    I know that Polanski's 1979 TESS was once available on DVD from another region. The Korean edition is OOP. Does anyone know if it is currently available elsewhere?

    Don't know, but I have wondered the same thing. I have seen this exactly once, in a theater when it was first released, and would love to see it again, done properly. Just a terrific movie.

    It's coming out in the UK on 23rd August with an RRP of £12.99. According to the specs I've seen it'll be full 2.35:1 anamorphic.

    Why is this not out here yet?

    Columbia kindly gave us MACBETH,
    and I presume they still control TESS.

    I'll take a wild guess. This is a very long, very slow moving story that is not upbeat. Perhaps Columbia feels that this sort of story will not sell these days. [​IMG]
