I saw this film in the theater 25 years ago and have remembered scenes from it ever since, but I was always frustrated in my attempts to see it a second time. No release on VHS or DVD stateside. I even used to ask friends visiting Paris to try and hunt down a copy for me. Well, it was finally released in France in September,2007. I had no difficulty ordering the DVD through Amazon FR. It does NOT have subtitles AND you will need a region-free VCR in order to watch it. Perhaps someday NEW YORKER FILMS, which brought this movie to American theaters 25 years ago, will issue this DVD for our region and with English subtitles.
Simple and poetic. Mournful and strange. A minor masterpiece.
