Hi my daughter wants a French DVD called Intouchables

Only place with limited choice is Amazon and i thought maybe i had missed somewhere and figured somone on Geekzone might have a opinion on where to try.

Also tried itunes no luck there

Thanks in advance

Just got into French movies recently and really enjoying them, even with subtitles. Recently watched Tell No One, Anything For Her, and Point Blank, all thrillers and really good.

There is a Blu-ray/DVD/CD pack on amazon.fr for not much more than the DVD. The Blu-ray doesn't have English subtitles and I don't think the DVD does either.

Be careful for amazon.fr if you want something with English subtitles. Amazon.uk often has French movies and these are always subtitled. The French store seems to be exclusively French language. 

This is a movie I really want to watch too but have yet to find.

Thanks for all the replies so far

as has been noted the problem with amazon.fr is you only get french subtitles great for our daughter but  English subtitles would be a great option for her and the rest of us

You could download third party .srt subtitles from the internet to use.

I don't think Amazon.fr determines what subtitles are on a title but this title lacks English subtitles because there hasn't been a home media release for an English speaking country yet. The Amazon.co.uk listing is for an import of the French disc. But the Amazon.ca release is sure to have English subtitles when or if it comes.

It looks like it's only been released in France (Region 2) as of March.  It's currently in theatres in the US, and not expected to have a regional DVD release until later this year (? September) - so you're probably looking for something that doesn't quite exist yet.
