4.0 out of 5 stars Little known classic, 24 Feb. 2013
This really is a fantastic film which, like so many French films of the period, deserves a proper Region 2 release. In the meantime this region 0 release is great, as long as you can put up with the distinctly American translations. Lino Ventura and Jean-Paul Belmondo both put in great performances and the atmosphere of the film is fantastic. You won't regret purchasing it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great film of a great band, 3 May 2004
'The Kids are Alright' has always been a classic film but has suffered from a poor vhs release that has been difficult to find in the past. The new DVD release certainly does it justice in terms of picture and greatly improves the sound quality for sterio (although I am unable to comment on the 5.1 mix).
It is unusually in that unlike other music DVDs (such as the excellent Led Zeppelin set) it is not a direct copy of concert footage, nor is it chronological. It skillfully uses interviews, TV spots and live concerts to create a snapshot of one of the most anarchic and destructive bands to have existed.
The special features are myriad and really compliment the film. They are exemplary both in terms of quantity and quality. The two standout features are the documentary on the restoration process and the issolated John Entwistle Bass tracks. It would have been nice however to have had some interviews with Pete Townshend and footage of the original premiere (if it is in existance).
Ultimately 'The Kids are alright' is a passionate and hilarious film that will hopefully get watched by a new and wider audience as a result of this excellant release. A must for any fan of the who or just good rock music.
