We found this film in French Canada in 1994
5 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We located this movie in Montreal in 1994 in French with NO English subtitles......This was an NTSC VHS released in Quebec probably in the 1970's.....The Running Time that we have located is 1 Hour 33 Minutes...No English version has been sighted in Quebec.......Have never seen a better quality version in our 15 years of driving around Quebec and New Brunswick looking for old French movies..........We do not buy films on the internet so not sure what was released on European format......May still be available as an ex-rental but we stopped buying ex-rentals in 2002.....Most have been opened and the original tape replaced with 3rd and 4th generation copies.....It is a god film and a little controversial because of the theme......some of the big auction sites have banned films about incest......Most of the Romy Schneider films we have found in Quebec are in French with no subtitles.....
