Title Best
8 Women (8 Femmes)R2F

    The Region 1 disc was released earlier this year. It is reported as being similar to this disc, but with a 2.0 soundtrack dubbed in English (no French sound at all). There's a German version that's reported to have a director's commentary, which would be a good thing, but it is probably in French (and there are no English subtitles...). There's an English version (in French with English subtitles) that reportedly includes an interview with the costume designer (that I would like to see) and a couple of music videos of numbers from the film — I haven't located a reliable review for a judgment on the transfer quality. And then there's a French deluxe version, with 3 DVDs and a CD — the film is provided on the first DVD with a commentary, and both Dolby Digital and dts soundtracks; the second DVD is full of extras; the third DVD includes the play that inspired this film — it sounds fabulous, but it's all in French (not even subtitles in English)... Si vous parlez français, c'est bon!

    It looks like you have to get the R1 if you want an English dub. I'd recommend the R4, though, for the original French dialogue. If you understand French, then the French version would be the one to choose.
