    I think the R1 version was released Tuesday. Anybody know of other region's versions (comments) ? I vaguely remember there is a French 2 DVD version that's even subtitled (PAL??), may be it was discussed here under the Truffaut collection set.

    Yes there's indeed a French DVD (not part of the MK2 collection though). The original title is La Nuit Américaine
    It features a commentary by Natalie Baye, some interviews (Truffaut, Bisset,...). The movie has ENG subs...
    I'll have to check the complete specs at home...

    Cheers,

    Vincent

    Hello Vincent,

    I was planning to buy the R1 version. What about you? Or is the (image-) quality of the French R2 release (not counting the "PAL speed-up") good enough in your opinion?

    IMHO, the French R2 DVD features a pretty good image considering the movie is 30 years-old... I doubt the R1 will surpass that...
    If you order it, please be sure it's the 2 disks set. I bought it in Belgium (I didn't know at the time that the French release was 2 disks), it's a single DVD release, but THEY KEPT THE SAME COVER AS THE FRENCH 2DVD SET, COMPLETE WITH THE WHOLE SET OF SUPPLEMENTS NOT PRESENT ON THE BELGIAN DVD, THEY JUST REMOVED ALL INDICATION OF A SECOND DVD !!!

    I just discover this fact, I'll ask for a refund to buy the French DVD...

    Cheers,

    Vincent
