TESTING

The thread will become sticky shortly. We will also have a similar thread for Region-B "locked" French titles. UK and Asian threads also coming up.

If you have any suggestions before the thread goes sticky tonight, please post

I might suggest organizing the listing, either by distributor or title, because as it grows larger, it may be difficult to find a specific release without a system of navigation.

Also, in the rare instance where a reviewed release is better-known outside of France by it's English title, it may be good to note that under or over the picture, although I cannot remember if this has ever been applicable thus far.

I would also specially highlight the indicator of their being no 1080i/50 content on the releases in this list, as it may be missed even in the bold paragraph.

Hopefully this list will make it even easier to find region-free releases playable on North American equipment.

McCrutchy,

All of these are very good suggestions, and I actually do have something similar in mind, but will likely do it in about 8-10 months, when we have more reviews. I would put a distributors list with the titles we have reviewed under each, marked as Region-Free or Region-B. But we need a bigger pool of reviews as at the moment some distributors would likely get only one or two releases in each thread.

looks great pro-b!
I have a few of those, but would love many more.
can't wait to get my copy of "French Cancan" that's on the way.
EDIT: really want "Young Girls of..." but dang it's pricey.
over 22 Euros--YIKES!

Everything is done through facial expressions and gestures, it is one of many factors that make this film so special. The cinematography is also quite incredible. And no, this is not a musical or anything of that nature

I can't believe they bothered with the 70's King Kong.

No, I understood it's not a musical. It sounds a bit like Mongol, which I really enjoyed, but without the dialog & subtitles - I was really drawn to the cinematography in that one (the wonderful Universal UK release with AVC video & DTS Master Audio, not the mediocre New Line US release with VC-1 & Dolby Digital)

Thank you for this thread, I love French movies and was happy to discover some very good ones are on region free blu ray discs! I will order several for sure: MR 73, La Haine, Le Dernier Combat, maybe even the extended cut of Walk the Line! Please keep posting updates!

Just a warning: I recently ordered Kelin, La Haine, 36 and Elephant Man from Amazon.fr and they ended up sending the REGION B LOCKED UK version of La Haine instead of the region-free FR version. I'm not sure if this is a common issue or not. Elephant Man & 36 didn't even make it! For some reason they were returned and refunded.

Thanks for the recommendations though! Cool thread

Kasponius,

Be careful when you order La Haine. You want to have the French release by Studio Canal. I see they are also selling cheaper Benelux imports.

As far as you shipping troubles - you must select the slightly more expensive shipping option, because Amazon.fr are having some issue with the "supersaver" option somewhere in the UK.
