Buffy Season 5 French Release: Why so expensive?

So I'm looking around various sites and it seems that the French Buffy and Angel releases are cheaper for Americans than the Aussie versions, as they're about $60 each. But then I look at the upcoming French Season 5 release, and it' $120! Anybody know why it's 2x as expensive as the others?

Thanks,
-David

Some reasons probably:
- French DVD market is #1 in Europe in spite of stratospheric prices
- French people are not likely to buy abroad as they will ask for a French soundtrack on their DVD
- Few Frenchs buy online

Ok, but the previous FRENCH releases are half the Season 5 price.
