No, this is not news of any forthcoming DVD release...
Today I tried to purchase the french DVD version mentioned in many places on this site. The bad news is it has been withdrawn. But even worse news is that it will come back, but then only with forced French subtitles. I got this news from a French DVD vendor and then checked the Editions Montparnasse website. After bypassing the irritating "you live in the wrong country" messages it is clear. It was available in VF, VO and VOST previously (this is French for "French dubbed version", "original version" and "subtitled original version"), but now it is only listed as VF & VOST.
I sense the evil of AOL Time Warner!!!
