Excellent film but bad DVD transfer

"This is really one of the best films I've seen this year. There's something for everyone: Comedy, romance, drama, music - you name it! However, this particular DVD-transfer is strikingly bad. Even though it's a NTSC disc, it's suffering (strange as it may seem) from PAL speedup. True! Evidently, it's been converted from a PAL video source instead of being scanned from film! That would also explain its smeared-out, unfocused appearance. Still, you may want this release because it's currently the only way to get English subtitles. Image quality of the French DVD release is far better, not to mention the French Blu-ray edition."
PARIS 36 (FAUBERG 36) WILL ENTARTAIN YOU!

"Filmed in PANAVISION 2.35, this musical doesn't pretend to be glamorous, but rather it shows the value of friendship and persistence in one's beliefs. Fascism and Communism threaten even this little neighborhood of blue collar workers in Paris just before WW2. The film shows that the power of music and song transcend all hardships . A very touching yet entertaining musical-drama. I highly recommend it!
I would love to purchase the DVD, but I want it in Blu-ray, already available in France, but without English subtitles. Please hurry AMAZON U.S., and stock this title in Blu-ray!"
