How many days did it take for your DVD to arrive from Cinestore??

Shipping details fetish....

1. Placed my order for both SCENT & TRAFFIC on the 13th this month. Both the status were on "Immédiate" availability.

2. SCENT was Expediée on the 15th.

3. Arrived here (i live in Singapour Pays!) on the 22nd.

~Shipping Europe to Asia = 6 bizness days!~

4. TRAFFIC left france on the 18th. im still awaiting her arrival....


Its a huge White Package wif ur details scribbled wif marker via REGISTERED MAIL.


its definitely wiser to purchase more than 1 title....



Hope this helps......

It seemed to take less than a week for mine to arrive in Michigan, but I didn't pay too much attention. They included a Huge! 300+ page catalog that must have cost a fortune to ship. Nice set BTW.

I was going to order this but I didn't see the United States in the drop down country menu that's in the check out section. Does anyone know what I select to get it shipped to the USA. Thanks, Big

That "(4:3)" simply means the disc isn't 16:9 enhanced, but it is widescreen.

simply spectacular... Every self-respecting film aficionado should have this in his collection..... Kudos to ARTE! ARtE is cool enuff to despatch this to me 1st despite the delay for my TRAFFIC is only 3 days!!!!! Im a pleased client.


and yes, it is wif the 2 SHORTS!!!! Get it while it lasts, no?
So, you bought the new edition from arte and you found all the extra there were on the old edition?
I hope so, 'cause I ordered the disc from amazon.fr before reading this thread and amazon.fr sells the new one...

For the other title, see that it will be realised on region 2 uk (so with englis subtitles) on next 25-3-2002 with the title of At The Height Of Summer.

I sent an email to Amazon.fr asking what version they are selling, and here is their answer:

I have researched our site and am happy to tell you that the DVD "Cyclo / L'Odeur de la papaye verte" is available on our site. The single DVD of "L'Odeur de la papaye verte" is not available. You can order the double DVD at the following webpage...
So, if this is NOT the 2-DVD-set, then they will have to cover shipping the other way, since I don't think "double DVD" means ONE DVD, right? I ordered it this morning, and I will let you know what I get!

Hope this helps,

Sebastian.

Mmm. I'm not so sure, reading their answer it is possible they mean that the edition has the two films and not only one. Of course I hope it is the 2DVD edition. I'm waiting for it (they shipped it to me this morning), and leaving in Europe I would receive it in a few days. I'll tell you.

Thanks for your answer. The friend above wrote to amazon.fr, but I really don't consider their answer satisfying. We must wait and hope.
For At The Height, it is the english title of A la vertical de l'ete. Region 2Uk version, anamorphic widescreen and with english subs, will be realised on next month. See amazon.co.uk to preorder it.

Sorry, another thing: Cinestore has the scan of the arte edition, and the back says it has TWO discs not only one. :-?

Arte's release of Scent Of Green Papaya has Cyclo on the flip side... the second disc has some short films made by the director, so it's a bonus extra.
This package is supposedly no longer available.

The new package only contains the 2 movies on both sides of the one DVD... no more bonus second disc.

But it seems that Cinestore still has the 2 DVD package in stock...

...anyway, on amazon.fr they speak about a "coffret". A single dvd cannot be considered a coffret.
Waiting for the delivery...

Just got an email from them, and it says they "look into it further" and they will let me know WHAT exactly they are selling there.

I will keep you posted,

Sebastian.

Good. Even if, looking better, here:
http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASI...173371-9159466

you can read, below the spechs of the title:

- Interactivité : Disque 1 : menu d’accueil ; accès aux scènes ; commentaire audio du réalisateur sur Cyclo. Disque 2 : making of des 2 films ; bandes-annonces des 2 films ; 2 courts métrages du réalisateur.
- Format cinéma : 1.66 (L’Odeur...), 1.85 (Cyclo).
- Versions sonores : VO vietnamienne en mono (L’Odeur...), et stéréo Dolby surround (Cyclo).
- Sous-titres : Français, anglais, allemands et hollandais.
- France/Vietnam - 1993/95 - Couleurs - 96’/123’ - Arte/Film Office - 2 disques - 2 faces (films)/1 face (bonus) - 1 couche.

I don't think they'll put such a description on the page if the edition is the new without the second disc.

Hope so.

That could be the description for the original release, and they have not updated it for the new packaging....

Yes, but in such a case I can return the disc to them and ask for the refund.

Alright everyone, I just got a mail from AMAZON.fr's "Florian", and he told me this:


Suite a votre demande, nous avons effectue des recherches concernant "Cyclo
/ L'Odeur de la papaye verte", ce coffret contient bien 2 DVD.

Alright, in plain English: The set contains 2 DVDs!


Sebastian.
