To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
J'ai été vraiment déçu par le contenu du DVD car en effet, si j'achetais ce film en DVD c'était principalement pour pouvoir le visionner en anglais et en recevant Requiem For A Dream j'ai été surprise de ne pouvoir trouver que la langue française. C'était une grande déception pour ma part et je ne pense donc pas avoir à l'utiliser dans ces conditions. De plus, il ne me semble pas que cela ait été préciser avant mon achat dans la partie description du produit.
Do not get this disk. Get the Lions Gate release (available for $9.99 on Amazon.com)
I ordered this disc after having read very positive reviews about the transfer and the extras. Consequently, I was quite surprised, and disappointed, when I received the disc, to discover that it had no extras whatsoever (not even a menu!) and that the video quality was barely similar to that of a scaled un SD DVD, that is, soft and muddy. Major let down!
What I hadn't realized was that the reviews I had read were about the american Lions Gate release of the film, and that the only version available on Amazon.ca was the slightly older (6 months) Alliance release. What contributed to my confusion was that both releases feature exactly the same artwork (except for tiny french title on the canadian one).
If you'd like to see the difference in quality between both transfers, you may compare eloquent screen captures of both releases at [...]
One point to note for my fellow francophones, however, is that the american transfer does not feature a french-dubbed track, nor french subtitles.
Hoping this helps... Now, I'm just about to ask Amazon.ca for my first refund ever...
