Though I seem to be in a minority of people who love this film, someone out there might be interested to know that there is an excellent special edition of THE SHELTERING SKY available on French R2. The print is much better than that on R1 or the UK R2, anamorphic and with a DTS soundtrack. In addition there is a commentary track by Bertolucci and producer Jeremy Thomas and (at last) the 50 minute on-location documentary that was made for the film's release, but which has been little-seen since. The picture quality of this is a bit rough but not so rough it'll spoil your enjoyment. The best news is that it's completely English friendly, with only the main menus in French. There are no forced subtitles. To round it all off, it comes in a laminated gatefold package, in a nicely-designed slipcase. I got mine from Amazon France but you may be able to get it cheaper elsewhere. I'm new to this forum so forgive me if this is old news. Talking of Bertolucci, does anyone know if there are any plans for a LAST TANGO IN PARIS special edition ? This is such a landmark film, it seems odd that we only have it on a bare-bones disc.
