5.0 out of 5 stars Extras advertised are not Translated into English, 2 Nov. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Madame Bovary [1991] [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
Having just enjoyed the film, we were eager to take in the interview with Isabelle Huppert and of course the comments by Chabrol himself, (the night before we'd done the same with L'Enfer, so 2 Chabrol nights in a row may have been pressing it... but hey, we're over eighteen... ok, well over eighteen, and yeah, we like French films get the picture). So, anyway, we return to the intricate menu and discover Quelle Horreur! the following legend sous les headings: "All extra material is French Language only", not only that, but... there was no interview with the lovely Isabelle, or Cast/Crew biogs and filmogs! The menu actually on the DVD says:
- Extract of Madame Bovary by Jean Renoir
- presentation of the movie by Joel Magny
- Special Comments by Claude Chabrol
- The Claude Chabrol Collection
- Options de menu Francais
page 2
- Extract from 'Bonnes Addresses du Passe"
- original Theatrical trailer
- Arrow Catalogue
- "The Faces"
- Internet
For les amants de Chabrol who are pauvres non French speakers I am afraid the extras shown are a "non, non" and no Isabelle aussi, We have written to Arrow Films for an explanation. Meanwhile, enjoy the film for the Chabrol experience - a seemingly detached look at a soul blighted by a bad romance that turns into a realistic and sympathetic portrayal of an ordinary disappointed life.
