Vidocq, Delicatessen R2 DVDs

According to Dark Horizons, the "Vidocq" special edition ("edition prestige") 2-DVD set for R2 was recently announced and will be released March 20th:

http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/tg/...494519-8343456

From what I can tell, the film at least has English subtitles, though I've got no idea about the commentary or extras (I'm guessing those are French only). Still, considering that I'm not sure if the film has been picked up for release Stateside or not, this might be the only way to see it.

Also, the R2 Project is reporting that "Delicatessen" will be released in the UK on April 19th.

Vidocq as a film is reasonable, and quite a good murder mystery. Art direction is fantastic, though the 'special effects' that has been touted so much are quite ordinary.

Anyone has any ideas where to find complete specs of this title? DVDFr has not yet updated its database...

Any chance we'll see a R1 'Delicatessen' anytime in the foreseeable future??

Considering that "City of Lost Children" is already available in R1 (well, and "Alien Resurrection"), my guess is that "Delicatessen" will be released in R1 to coincide with the release of "Amelie" on DVD over here, capitalizing on the later's success.

Who own the rights to "Delicatessen"? The same company that has the rights to "Amelie"?

Yes. Miramax owns the rights.

there's a box set available in Z2 containing "Delicatessen" & "the city of lost children" and another title called "le bunker de la derniere rafale"
the catch is... it's only in French, no english ST
for those who speaks french

Now, why wasn't Vidocq picked up in the U.S.? They were asking for too much money? Or simply not suitable?

Now that it has been released for a while, has anyone here purchased the R2 version of Vidocq? Does the special features have English subtitles, or just the main feature?

Vidocq is getting a Hong Kong release on 3/26. DDD House has it up for order, for anyone wanting a cheaper alternative to the French set. It's only $9 in HK.

According to the info on DDDHouse it looks like the HK release might be 4:3 only

Just got my copy of Deli from Bensonsworld & I have to say that it is very good!
I was a BIT confused w/the menus ( I could'nt see what the different features were too well) & that the director's commentary is in french is a slight ding.

I finally had the chance to sit down and watch the French Vidocq DVD. Yes the movie has subtitles and I actually loved it. If you don't expect a phenomenal story (though it's certainly interesting enough) what you get is a absolutely beautiful action/thriller.

Unfortunately the extras are not subtitled but at least the movie itself is anamorphic widescreen with subs. Definitely recommended.

Next I have to sit down and watch the UK Amelie and my Delicatessen should arrive today.
