Question about Los Olvidaodos and the other R0 Bunuel films...

I just got these today and was wondering if those who have them can tell me if they're legit or not. They're "sealed" with that loose plastic seal which sorta makes me believe they were re-shrink wrapped. They say "collection Cine-club" in the corner. Is there anything that would stand out? There are no inserts either.

Could you give me details so i can check? Or even if someone can take a picture and post it of the disc, and the back cover, etc.

Thanks!

I had checked www.cinestore.com about 9 months or so ago and almost bought R0 Los Olvidados (In Spanish, of course, with optional English or French subtitles) from them (~ $40 shipped, from France). I didn't.

I just checked their site, and the R0 is now R2.

Here is a picture of the cover for the R2:

Yah that looks about right...im starting to think they're legit. There's even some spanish thing at the beginning with "Cineclub" or something.

Here is a review of the R0 disk. It gives a link to Cinestore, but when you go to Cinestore it says R2.

That is, I think it is a review. I don't speak or read French, though I can sort of follow along due to the Spanish that I know.

Ahhh... I thought these had gone OOP last year. Not the greatest transfers on the planet, but eminently watchable and the only game in town for most of us. IMO, "Él" is one of the great, underrated Bunuel films, and clearly a favorite of Hitchcock's!
