The first two are relatively cheap to get hold of, and the last one is on LoveFilm - let me know if anyone doesn't have LoveFilm and I'll choose something else.

Unfortunately we don't have LoveFilm in France (it has been forecast to start imminently for the past 12 months, but I don't think Amazon.fr is very proactive on this score). Under the skin is still in some cinemas, so isn't available on DVD or Bluray yet, and its not on Orange VOD yet. Sorry about that.

Sorry BBB, didn't realise. Do you want me to replace it with something else? And as for Under The Skin, shall I just replace both of these films with something else?

Does it get eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex?

No, but they do knock some stuff over and climb on a table.

Disappointing as those are the two I haven't seen and therefore would have voted for but if a member can't get one I don't see how it can be included and if another member will not be able to watch a second film for some reason than again it shouldn't be included. Under the Skin could be included from October by the look of it.

Don't do that on my behalf Dave, and if it does get chosen, I'll try my best to watch it, but god help me if she sees it. It's not that my wife is in denial, it's just that she is tired of being blamed for something that happened a long time ago. I read a review on IMDb which was from someone who had seen the film in China, and they told of school trips to see the film. This isn't about education, this is all about anti-Japanese propaganda. The Chinese are teaching their kids to hate Japan, that is a fact, and there are regular attacks in China on Japanese businesses and people. My problem with watching this film, is it is being used to stir up anti-Japanese feeling, whether that was the director's aim or not.

Did they? It was more exciting than I thought then.  Mosking

You forgot the bit where the stone was knocked way from under the van, the can knocks over the fence, and the goats run amok. It was like the first twenty minutes of Saving Private Ryan. With goats.

Was there also the ceremonial burning of a tree? A bit like The Wicker Man, without a wicker man.

You're right, I'll have to watch it again.

To me it seemed as though it was presenting the facts of what happened - I don't know how accurate it is in general as I wasn't there and I hadn't even heard of the story it was telling until I ordered the film, but it seemed the type of film that was going for accuracy. I personally sided with the Japanese in this instance based on what the film was telling me. I certainly wouldn't have expected that any hatred still continues today. 

I'll make another recommendation BBB as I totally understand your situation. Shall I also replace Under The Skin?

If you could change Under The Skin, that would be great, but please stick with the other, I'll just have to watch it in secret if it gets chosen.  Biggrin

This is just some of what has happened, and is still happening, a lot goes unreported in the west.
