I plan on blind buying it, once it hits $15 or under. I think it looks pretty fun.

One thing I'm wondering though, what is considered 'original' language for this film? It's a French production, and has been out in France for a while, but it appears that the mouth animation is synchronized to the English audio track. (Thereby, in the French trailer, the mouth movements and the French language track don't match up.)

I was kind of bummed about the U.S. version not having the French audio track, but I'm thinking that maybe it's not such a big deal since the animation is tailored to the English track anyway.

This is a tough call.

Even though Disney's Beauty and the Beast was originally an English-language production, the French track is quite beautiful to listen to. Plus, the movie is set in France.

Yeah, I got it at Target for $15. Figured I'd buy it for now, since I can always return it. But I'm leaning toward keeping it and watching it soon.

Anyway, as it stands, is there any version that has the French audio track and English subtitles? According to this site, the French edition only has French audio and French subtitles.

If no French audio/English subtitle version exists, the U.S. version would be the only logical option for me anyway. As much as I like how French sounds, I don't understand it.

I saw this at TIFF and enjoyed it. I'll have to see if I can find this at a Canadian retail store.

The 3D is perceived as mild to medium strength, which has a lot to do with the pastel colors used for a European flair atmosphere. The story is involved, busy with character development, and does not make it child friendly, but a mature attentive person can really get into the story.

The kids really enjoyed it. But, this new trend of stuffing two video streams on a BD25 for 3D needs to go. Even with animations as short as this one, without any extras on the disc, that's just too much to ask of 25GBs. Posterization - one of the most common side effects of bit starvation - was some of the worst I've seen in a while. It didn't ruin it, but if I wanted over-compressed video, I'd stream it for virtually free.

BD.com's reviewer needs either a MUCH larger screen to adequately evaluate HD video, or one with better color decoding and/or processing than found in most LED panels, whichever the case may be.

I picked this up for $14.99 at Target. Great animation, a nice change from Disney/Pixar. Worth picking up.

I've ordered it as a fan of animation and a lover of Paris, but I'm totally bummed that the original soundtrack is not included as an option. My French is not great, but I'd still prefer the option to hear the characters as originally conceived and read subtitles when necessary. I can't believe the reviewer didn't mention this while complaining about the English language voices, or at least under the Extras heading. I'll bet the French voices are much more colorful and energetic than the English voices he complains about.
