DVD !


At last this outstanding film is available on DVD (January 22, 2008). One question though : wasn't LBD shot in widescreen ? The DVD is in full screen and that's why I'm asking...

I suppose it was (the vast majority of films are shot in widescreen). There are actually many DVDs that are in full screen despite the fact that the movie was originally shot in widescreen. Anyways, I personally hate widescreen cause at least half of the television screen is covered in black and it kind of diverts the attention from the central action too, so I think it is good that they made the DVD in fullscreen. It is a very good movie; probably my favourite Quebec movie, and it is unfortunate that many good films like Les beaux dimanches remain obscure and unnoticed.

I don't want realism. I want magic!
