I know the film was released on laserdisc in Hong Kong with English subtitles but I've never seen that disc come up for sale (If I had it, I wouldn't sell it either). As a result I've been trying to find the French dvd for the last couple of years, ever since seeing a rip taken from it. As is often the case with HK Video releases, the love, care and respect given to the production of the dvd is second to none. Excellent image quality aside, the whole package screams quality. An outer slipcase holds the dvd digipac along with a gorgeous booklet filled with stills from the film and behind the scenes. On the dvd itself is a 30 minute interview with Tsui Hark about the film (in English), the documentary Hong Kong Cinema Blues (in French) and a photo gallery.

Another fantastic release from HK Video, I know the lack of subtitles is a major issue as not everyone wants to bother adding them but as I said, the love that goes into these releases makes it more than worth the effort. Now to track down their release of Hark's The Lovers!
