The French disc is a total disaster. Muffled audio (MB is clear), dark, horribly boosted picture and of course not from a native pal master. Media Blasters (also interlaced) looks very muted but I’m pretty sure the film is meant to look muted (not to this extent, though). I recommend some slight contrast / brightness adjusting just to make it more pleasing to the eye. Pathe should be avoided at all costs. I believe MB is a Toei port. I’m not sure if Eureka (UK) and R.E.M (Germany) have released their dvds yet, but those will /are most likely conversions from the Toei master (EDIT: Eureka might be a NTSC, and not a conversion, but I'm not sure)

EDIT: If you're still considering the French dvd, then take a look at these caps. I didn't include them with the original comparison because they feature some spoilers. But they show how terrible the french transfer can be at times.

Both are a mess but the Frenchie looks better, just. Both are a disaster though and because of which I wouldn't buy either.

Careful ;)

What's so strange about my comments? Don't they make any sense?

Maybe on some psychological level... but I'm not a shrink...

The shadow detail on the French disc is really bad.

Here's two pairs of caps that I found slightly spoiling and dropped from the comparison on that basis. But if there's someone who still didn't quite get which one of the dvds is better (not even counting the audio) then I recommend taking a look.
