Quelle surprise!

I got home from work yesterday to find this waiting for me.

La Femme Publique sample copy

Now, before anyone gets a head of themselves, I need to point out that La Femme Publique is not actually shipping just yet. This is an advance copy that was sent to me by the good people at Mondo Vision, and a very nice surprise it was too. (Entering shameless self-promotion mode for a moment, it was also very cool to see my name in the “special thanks” section on the DVD credits screen.)

It’s a very nice package overall, with a 24-page booklet including translations of materials from the French press kit and a new essay by Daniel Bird, as well as a handy little sheet that tells you how to set up your display properly (why more DVD releases don’t include this basic information is a mystery to me). And, of course, that’s in addition to the excellent transfer, exclusive interview and commentary with Andrzej Zulawski (his story about how he persuaded the 20th Century Fox executives to agree to the casting of Valérie Kaprisky is priceless), and, last but not least, the film’s first ever English subtitle translation.

Permit me for one moment to sound like a shill, but, if you want a copy of the film and haven’t ordered it yet, get yourself to Amazon.com and pre-order either the special edition or premium edition now.

Hi there,

Is the edition you received the regular or the special limited edition? I'm looking at the photo you've uploaded and cannot tell! I have ordered the Special limited edition.

It’s the standard edition. The premium edition has a completely different design which I’ve not seen in the flesh yet, but which can be seen in mock-up form here.
