Une femme franšaise (A French Woman)- E.Beart



The Land Down Under will see the release of Une Femme Franšaise (A French Woman) starring Emmanuelle Beart and Daniel Auteuil this March 9. The preliminary info indicates 1.33 aspect ratio but I hope this is simply a typo. As of today there is no English friendly verison of this film.

I am not so sure i understand your question. This film does exist in other regions but if you wait until March as the post indicates above you should be able to see it with English subs as the Aussie dvd will (naturally) offer them. So, again I am not sure what your question was...but hope this helps.

Regards,

ps
just for your information....French non-subbed version




ps
Now that I am looking at your post I dont even think it was meant for this thread....

Here is a recent review of the Australian DVD:

The film is presented in an aspect ratio of 1.44:1 and is not 16x9 enhanced. The original aspect ratio was 2.35:1, and this format cannot even be seen during the opening and closing credits, where a widescreen format is shown at about 1.73:1. While there is no obvious cropping, I would be assuming that this is a pan and scan transfer, not an open matte one.

The transfer is quite sharp and clear, with a satisfactory level of detail. Contrast is very good, but shadow detail tends to vary. In some shots, there are details visible in black hair and dark suits, but in other shots such detail vanishes. I suspect this is a feature of the original filming.

Colour is generally okay, but reds are oversaturated. Jeanne's bright red dress is too red, and the red insignia on the military uniforms seems unnatural. Flesh tones are well rendered. Blacks are solid in brightly lit sequences, but in darker parts of the film they have a whitish sheen and some noise over them.

I am convinced that this transfer comes from the master used for the VHS release and is not a new transfer. While it looks sharper than VHS, there are several problems which suggest a video master. During darker sequences there are visible pale bars across the screen. At the bottom of the screen there is a distortion caused by tracking errors, especially noticeable during the Syrian scenes. And there is a serious tracking error early in the film at 5:57, which causes vertical colour bars to appear very briefly in the lower half of the frame.

The transfer seems to have come from first generation print material judging by the sharpness of the image, but there are a lot of film artefacts. These are mainly white flecks and dirt, though I also saw the occasional hair.

Subtitles are provided in English. These are burned-in white subtitles which were created by a French subtitling firm, presumably for overseas prints of the film. They are well-timed and there are no problems with grammar. American spelling is used, for example "theater" and "Mom"

I don't usually pick a bone with Xploited but what's on this page is clearly a travesty...
