Packaging / Design

This is an all glossy style digipack and slipcase. The artwork looks good and everything feels nice and sturdy. Granted, the artwork don't match in the slipcase cut outs but it's still the best looking case I've seen for this film so far.

Disc contents / Extras

Both discs come with french menus only and the second disc is quite confusing. It's divided into 5 sections named after some of the films key characters. In each section there's some interview footage with writer Jean-Christophe Grangé talking about the character but the sections also hold "regular" making of segments that aren't directly related to that specific character.

All in all, kind of a weird choice for the menu lineup on disc 2 but you should still be able to find most of what you're looking for.

As for the extras themselves they're all in french and without any english subtitles (!). This edition obviously has the most special features but if you don't speak french it's not best choice.

The audio commentary is also in french and but it's not subitled in english even though the first disc has english subs for the main feature.

I would suggest picking this edition up just for the packaging and the french DTS track, but also trying to accuired the Scandinavian edition as this includes a lot of the same extras but with english subtitles (do note, however, that the Scandinavian edition doesn't include english subtitles for the main feature).
