DOBERMANN dvd!!!!!Greatest French action movie available w/English subs & ANAMORPHIC!
 
http://www.web-libre.org/medias/affi...ee4acf4f66.jpg

For years and years, this DVD has not been available as Anamorphic and with English subtitles. And it's finally here - Russian company Amalgama has re-released this film, NTSC, Region-Free, with English subtitles this time and re-mastered anamorphic video...I'll do a DVD review of the film as soon as I get it and do a comparison to the previous Russian version (which didn't have English subtitles, but was anamorphic, and with DD 5.1/DTS French audio)

I can confirm that the DVD is anamorphic, Dolby Digital 5.1 French, and English subtitles! Finally, we can throw away the crappy UK and HK DVD versions..it's sold here at: http://www.artpopdvd.com/DVD/48602.aspx

For anyone who doesn't know about this film, it's the greatest live-action cartoon violent French movies ever! It's awesome and an easy blind buy. It also feels so short because it moves along so fast and is so entertaining. This is the one French film that I can watch over and over the most. A lot of people think that Gary Oldman from The Professional is one of the scariest villains of the 90s. Wait til you see Tchéky Karyo playing a bad cop - definitely one of his scariest roles. Did I mention that Vincent Cassell, Monica Bellucci, and Romain Duris are in the film?

Here's the trailer for people that don't know of this violent masterpiece: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Of7I7c9zwJM

Personally, I'm waiting for a better translation of Wasabi, hopefully for Blu-Ray, with the various extras that were included on foreign DVDs.

Have you seen Dobermann though?

I responded to your query elsewhere, Toddly - I seriously doubt it the Russian distribs have the right to include English subtitles. This being said, I hope they simply copied the old Universal disc (I will be covering the Blu-ray disc only).

I haven't, but I watched the preview and thought of Wasabi. I like the cast though.

More than a decade has past, so I doubt it.

I've only triple-dipped on very few DVDs in my collection: Battle Royale, Army of Darkness, and now Dobermann!

You must be speaking of a different Wasabi then as there isn't much of this

Lets hope that the site is right and it does indeed have english subtitles, and its not just a typo.

I already contacted the site, and they confirmed that it definitely has English subtitles as well as a menu in English. The only extra is the trailer...

I saw this in a theatre years ago and found it well-made but more than a bit pretentious, so I'm not sure I can second a blind buy. Definitely worth seeing, but . . .

Great news indeed

A friend showed this to me unsubtitled, and to be honest it barely mattered! Definitely one to turn the sound up and have a few friends over for with a couple of beers! It reminds me of watching early releases of Studio Ghibli films before they were subtitled...still good fun. This film is all action, and the dialogue is definitely secondary.

That said I will definitely be keen to check it out with a bit more comprehension of what is going on.

nice find

I just spend a week translating the subs into english and adding them to the R2 version! Probably wont buy another copy unless it gets released R1.

JESUS....you actually did subtitles...wow. That's passion right there...I think.

Balance is good with a movie like this! :lol:

I didn't hate it, as mentioned above, but I found it extremely pretentious and shallow (at the same time!) when I first saw it years ago, and that was loooong before the minor cult following that has popped up around it.

Let's just say... for a Double Feature Day, I would pair DOBERMANN with HOWARD'S END...;) Two entertaining, pretentious movies at the opposite spectrum...It's funny using the word "pretentious" about any kind of French film, because that's how I see the majority of French flicks! haha...As long as they are entertaining, I got nothing against pretentious flicks...For example, Les Témoins was the most recent awful pretentious, shallow, boring French film I've ever seen. That movie needed more action and violence!;)

Re: DOBERMANN dvd!!!!!Greatest French action movie available w/English subs & ANAMORP
 
I would never call Dobermann "pretentious" (a lot of people throw that word around inappropriately). I found it to be both dumb and boring. One or the other is fine; if it were dumb but exciting, or boring but smart I wouldn't have a problem (and it certainly wasn't smart and exciting, though I never expected it to be) - but it failed on both fronts.
