Perfect Love (1996)

Another one from Fox Lorber, but this disc is not the travesty that 36 Fillette was. Perfect Love (Parfait amour!) is a little bit different than the "usual" fare from Breillat, though a lot of her themes are still evident. And this US disc is actually pretty decent. It's got a sharp picture, much clearer subtitles than 36 Fillette had, and it's in its original aspect ratio. It's got nothing by way of special features, but that's really the only mark against it.

And it's a good thing, too; because this seems to be the only DVD edition of this film available anywhere. There's no UK or even untranslated French DVD. Breillat fans all around the world are watching the same disc this go 'round.
