Friends , warning , there are currently TWO different offerings of OUATIA  (area 2)

One called "SPECIAL EDITION" 1984  (2 discs ) with  DE NIRO face on the cover
Another called " COLLECTOR EDITION (2 discs) with only the Bridge on the cover.

Both are proposed by AMAZON fr  : COLLECTOR by September, SPECIAL with a short delay (14 days)

But ONLY SPECIAL EDITION 1984 is currently proposed by PLAY com (a good UK site) and not the COLLECTOR.

I don't know the differences but prices are the same.
My recommandation: DON'T BUY DE NIRO FACE

Aaronson, I may be wrong, but think that what you call the collector edition is simply the French version of the special edition now in the USA stores.
If you take a look at the special edition sold at Amazon.fr you will see that it's the R1 version (for USA & Canada), with the same technical details and extra features available in September in the French collector edition...
pls let me know

On FNAC website : two different offerings : same price, different name , same region 2, different delays .
No picture for the "special" quickly available so I can't see if Bob is on the cover

On UK  Play com: only one region 2 with Bob face , quickly available but Region 2

AMAZON : you are right,  Bob is on Region 1 .

I don't understand , if the two DVD are the same ,in the same Region 2 ,  why people must wait for the Collector in september ?.

And why two names ?

I can't believe that there is no quality gap between the two products

 Huh

On fnac.fr I could find this: http://www.fnac.com/Shelf/article.asp?PRID=1442181&SID=705fc271%2D47d9%2D4137%2Da434%2D40b8f50bc4ae&UID=0484cc2ff%2Dc1c0%2D165f%2D0582%2D096ef9a77f45&AID=&Origin=FnacFR&TTL=040720031826&Pe=2&No=2&Mu=-13&Fr=0&Mn=13&Ra=-3&To=0, which seems the same R1 version sold on Amazon.fr and in the USA stores, and it costs 3 eur more than the other French release, expected by September.
Sorry, I cannot find a second R2 release on fnac.fr...

FNAC propositions:

One collector by September ,still no price mentioned  R2
One daily deliverable 26,99 euros R2 uncomplete
One daily deliverable 29,99 euros R1 complete .

I'm wondering about the origins of the "mysterious " uncomplete second one.

If you check the site,select "leone" and "DVD VHS" you could see easily the three products

The two R2 products give me what I want: English language and french subtitle
THe R2  Play. com product gives only English (and French language) but not french subtitle.
Only AMAZON fr proposes me the collector for september with a clear price.

Easy no ?  

In any case thanks for your help.I'm waiting this DVD for a long time.

Aaronson, good news for you...
the R2 version sold by play.com has also French subtitles. How do I know that? Well, I bought it because I was convinced it had the Italian track, then I found out it was not true  Sad... no Italian language / subtitles at all, but plenty of French instead.
I wrote to play.com and they corrected the page with technical details, even though only as regards the languages...

but you can also check here http://www3.cd-wow.net/detail_results_2.php?product_code=4933 (very reliable site, I've already bought a few items from them), and here http://www.blackstar.co.uk/video/item/7000000080295.

Finally, check the OUATIA page at the official Warner UK site: http://www.warnerbros.co.uk/movies/onceuponatime/dvd.html, they confirm French subtitles as well...

To cut it short, if you buy the dvd at play.com you will have English and French both for language and subtitles... without having to wait until September Wink
