    I just happened to notice that Amazon.com has this DVD listed as being available Dec. 30. I've been waiting for this one forever! Amazon doesn't give any specifications; does anyone have any information on this release?

    It has the same ASIN as the one on Amazon.ca - which unfortunately is fullscreen.

    I believe the OAR is 1.85:1

    Hopefully we won't see the same treatment on Arcand's The Barbarian Invasion.

    Yes it's a shame that Quebec's best movies are often the victims of poor DVD transfers. I see this DVD in shops all the time here, it's hard for me to resist since it's probably my favorite local movie [​IMG] I hope someone will get this right at some point.

    I just read a customer review of this DVD at Amazon.ca, and apparently it has no English subtitles!

    The customer reviewer already had her copy back in Feb. So I'm speculating that there was a "made for Quebec" version released back then, while the one on Dec. 30 is going to be the general release, and the general release will have English subtitles; it seems to me that something like this happened back when Amelie was released.

    There's a site ..www.dvd.reviewer.co.uk.. that carries a very brief review of the UK disc. It definately states that its full screen with burnt in subs. This always put me off buying it.

    Has anyone discovered whether this release has English subtitles or not?
