    An asian version of Raise the Red Lantern (playable on all regions) is being offered for 19.99 at HKFlix.com(through a link on dvdpricesearch). Now, to my knowledge this movie is not available for region 1. Is anyone out there familiar with this version? Is this a legitimate release?This is one of my favorite movies and just don't know when this will be released for region 1.

    Yes, it's a legitimate release, although the transfer needs a lot to be desired. Still, it's watchable and is certainly preferable to VHS.

    I purchased one in Hong Kong a couple of years ago and I agree that the transfer leaves a lot to be desired but it will do until a better one comes along.

    What company? I have foreign movies from Mei Ah, ChinaStar DVD, and Fox Lorber, and they all suck in the quality dept. They're all legitimate DVDs.

    Who has the U.S. rights to this? I used to have a VHS copy but can't remember who the distributor was. Anyway, I think I'll wait for a hopefully better, R1 release.
