A Self-Made Hero / Un Heros tres discret



Fans of this (including me) will be pleased to hear this Mathieu Kassovitz/Jacques Audiard film is getting a subtitled release in the UK. There are already several versions in France but none with English subtitles.

From Optimum Home Entertainment. Incidentally, I've had a tiny peak at Optimum's 2007 line-up and they are releasing loads of interesting stuff. I'm glad Canal+ bought them and dumped Warner because Optimum have access to much of StudioCanal and Canal+ unlike Warner.

400+ titles (no this is not a joke)...according to inside sources. We'll see....

Will likely get one! Though I am very excited about their classic line-up!

Ciao,

I think a lot of the stuff is re-released Warner, Universal (part of Canal+) and the claw back of Artificial Eye releases and more importantly stuff from the old Lumiére, EMI Films, British Lion and Thorn EMI/Cannon Screen Entertainment catalogue.

What I'm trying to say is Optimum will be releasing everything they can get their hands on

Best thing is we get these nice quietly slipped out releases which I'm a real fan off. It would be nice to have extras and a fanfare but I'm happy just to see these things on DVD where they should be.

Now if only I could get a job that was as exciting as looking through Canal+'s back catalogue and saying "I'll take that...that...that and three of those"

I had a look at the UK DVD last night.

DD2.0 French with removable English subtitles. 16:9/anamorphic and a very nice pic too.

10 minute 'making of' and almost 30 minutes of quite good interviews. The content looks pretty much just like the French StudioCanal release except they've trimmed some of the interviews.

One of my fav French films of the 90s and definitely worth a look.

Has anyone found a good price on this? I'd love to pick it up, but the $30 tag (post-shipping) is tough to swallow. The exchange rate needs shape up again!

I'm not a big fan of The Beat That My Heart Skipped / Read My Lips but if you enjoyed those it's worth a try. I liked A Self-Made Hero becaue I believed the story and it was very well played by Mathieu Kassovitz (director of La Haine of course).

I din't like the story in Fingers and The Beat That My Heart Skipped is a remake of that annoying film. Read My Lips was also unbelievable.

For the best price (and you don't mind waiting) hang around because Optimum's prices yo-yo so keep an eye on Amazon

Excellent price

If you click on their Special Offers in the DVD section and then World Cinema there are lots of great prices.
