    Gary,
    Thanks for the review. I had never heard of this title before, but after reading your review I am intrigued. It was not clear from your review if the all-region disc you bought from e-bay was in NTSC or PAL format (unfortunately I don't have a PAL-capable player)

    Looks good, Gary...I'd love to buy this movie. But where? I don't have a multi-region player yet, so I need region 0 or 1 version & NTSC.
    Outside of eBay, is there a reputable site you would recommend?

    You're welcome, Gary. [​IMG] Definitely a refreshingly original and entertaining film.

    Who owns the Region 1 rights to this film ? Is there a chance Criterion or Anchor Bay might be able to release it on Region 1 DVD ?

    It never was released (theatrically) in the US, so my guess is that nobody owns the rights.
    Great movie -- I watched it again recently (I saw it when it came out 4.5 years ago at a film festival) and it was even better than I remembered. I love the music and the actors are a very appealing bunch.
    Gary, on your website you say that the R2 release is from Artificial Eye -- the links there refer to the French release which is not from A.E. -- it is from Video M6, a French company. There is a UK R2 DVD out, but it is not the same as the French version -- no DTS, possibly a different transfer, etc.
