    This might be more useful to Canadian readers and US border residents as I believe this fantastic French thriller was released as a Special Edition in Canada only. There IS a full-frame R3 disc that can be had for not much more money, but it lacks this disc's excellent special features. And judging from what Poker is selling it for:

    you could do A LOT worse than $7.99. This is not boxing day pricing either; they've got a small selection of lesser-known titles available now at this price.

    Thanks for the heads up. I stopped by my local Blockbuster today and found several copies of this title on the shelves. I've always been curious about this film as the storyline seemed rather intriguing....at $7.99, it was an easy purchase.[​IMG]

    I took a brief look at the disc....too bad the making of documentaries are french only with no english subtitles- You would think that in a country where most of the population speaks English, a company in CANADA would have the decency and common sense to include English subtitles for everything- not just the movie itself.

    I think the commentary is subtitled at least, so that's cool. I agree with you. I think this is the same company that released the excellent 3-disc set of Brotherhood of the Wolf, in which everything was subtitled. Strange, that...

    If you haven't seen the film, I guarantee there's nothing out there quite like it visually.

    Hmm, I don't remember seeing this one at BlockBuster, but I'll have to check again (I may have seen it but didn't know what it was until now...)

    I also saw a few other movies there that weren't too bad for $7.99. I picked up The Hole for that price and it is a very good movie, IMO, apart from it being a little disturbing. I also saw Run Lola Run at the same price but it was the older, pan & scan/fullscreen version so I passed on that...
