    I picked up Baraka this weekend and it reminded me of a movie I saw a few times a few years ago called Microcosmos.

    Why the hell is this movie not out on dvd in Region 1?

    There is no dialogue in the movie. (if I remember correctly) I may have to pick up the Canadian version. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Leif, at the risk of being nitpicky, there is a little bit of talk in it. If you've got school-level French (like me) you should be able to understand it, however. For all that, why isn't their an English version of this movie?

    You can also get the French DTS Region 2 2-disc edition if you can understand French. The extra's are in French.

    Cinestore should have it.

    I would try dvdzone2.com
    They are cheaper
    As fot he film:I haven't seen all of it but the parts I have seen didn't have any dialogue.
    If u like that kinda film try Le Peuple Migrateur. Basically the same but with birds. Oh and it also shows some not so pretty parts of nature (i.e. pollution)
    HTH
    here are the links:
    Just realised there is one with apes as well, or monkeys
    birds
    bugs But NOT the SE (so without DTS and more extras))
    apes/mpnkeys

    Microcosmos IS out in region 1. I just rented it two days ago. The image quality of the DVD is really crappy though.

    The Dutch R2 version can be picked up for 6 euro.

    Includes average anamorphic transfer, DD 5.0 track.
    Extras are outtakes (5 min), Making Of (13 min), Trailer and Cast & Crew. Everything is in French-only though, with optional Dutch subtitles (except on the trailer, which has burnt-in subs).
