I received this from Amazon.fr for about a tenner the other day. The picture quality is solid and I understand about the same as the older MPEG2 UK/US blu-rays.
The French BD uses VC-1. Like the UK/US blu-rays it's the Director's Cut but as it uses MPEG4 it houses all the extras (I think it's all of them) absent from the older UK/US blu-rays.
