    Does the new French release of Melville's Le Doulos, with the black and white cover and cardboard case (replacing an earlier release with some color in the cover and a keepcase) include English subtitles?

    Thanks.

    "Le Doulos" was reissued on DVD in France in October 2002 (R2). I have seen comments on some French sites which say than the black and white transfer is slightly better than the previous one, but the is sound is still French mono only, and there are no subtiltles at all.
    Bad news for those who doesn't understand French...

    Yes, you're right; bad news for me. However, I appreciate your reply. Thanks.

    I had the opportunity to visit my local FNAC store (#1 store chain in France for CD, DVD and books). I looked at this DVD : it is packaged in a "digipack" box. I had confirmation of the lack of subtitles and sountracks other than French...
