Taste of Others?

Has anyone picked up this one and if so how is the transfer, anamorphic or WS? Also, is the movie worth buying?

Le Gout Des Autres ***

Once again, French cinema has produced an exemplary ensemble piece, with a script as warm, witty and insightful as the performances. In this case, it probably helped that the script was written by two of the stars, one of whom, Agnès Jaoui, is also making her directorial debut. Her acting background is evident in her direction, giving the cast the freedom to bring every last character to life with total conviction.

The French have always been unsentimental about sex. Also, they see the funny side.
In this ensemble piece about a factory owner who hates his life and an actress who is afraid of growing old, comic tension stretches beyond stereotype to an absurd and painful reality.

It seems to be well liked worldwide. A well made entertainment.

Couldn't find anything about the quality of the dvd.

...and... if your equipment allows you to play Region2/PAL discs, the French DVD (anamorphic 2.35:1) features optional English subtitles...

Very good film - I gave it 4/5 stars. A wonderfully observant dissection of human interaction in a society which is utterly defined by cliques.
