    Hello, I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but I'm looking for any good websites that import dvd's. Thanks.

    For French releases, amazon is very bad. They do not stock the french exclusive releases. The one that has every DVD released in the country is www.cinestore.com .
    (Good choice Europe has the best catalog of TV Shows and classics films).

    I've had no problems with Amazon.fr, and they ship fast! Unlike Amazon.de.

    I don't think Cinestore ships to the US. Under 18 does not anymore either.

    Cinestore surely ships to U.S. I've used them a few times in the last couple of months. They even sent me a huge catalog from France for free!
    I also recommend alapage.com (www. alapage.com). They ship the items pretty fast, and it took only a week to CA (while it normally takes 10 to 14 days by Cinestore).

    Thanks for all the info. The specific dvd's that i'm looking for are the different Corrs titles that are not available in the U.S., also I have no idea what the exchange rates and all that are like...do the different sites let you know what the price translates to in dollars?

    YesAsia.com lists their prices in U.S. dollars.

    Some examples...

    The original HK uncut version of Gorgeous is on sale for $10.99.

    The original HK uncut version of Twin Dragons is on sale for $8.49.

    The R3 exclusive dts versions of Driven and Angel Eyes sell for $10.49 each. Both DVDs feature the same video transfer as the R1 editions.

    Battle Royale Dolby Digital & dts R3 sells for $9.99.

    The problem with amazon french is not consumer service, or shipping. The real problem is the catalog they store. For what i have search, titles exclusive to france (Buñuel El/Ensayo de un crimen, Los Olvidados, Viridiana) are not avalaible. For this, i prefer cinestore (if it´s not for the exclusive titles, why i would buy a region 2 DVD?)

    Yahoo has a currency converter (http://finance.yahoo.com/m3?u), and I use it all the time whenever I make purchases from the international online retailers.

    Ok, I tried to order from Cinestore again today. When setting up a new account there is NO choice for USA. Every other country is listed but ours.

    The United States is "Etats Unis"(!) in French, so just choose it from the country drop box and everything should be fine.
