Great Movie, but Where is the DVD????
This is a great movie. I saw it in the theater when it first came out. I have not seen the film since 1985 when it first came out, but I have often thought about it. I was very young when I saw it and it made me think about the period in France after WWII in which they became enamoured with Stalin (hence the title Red Kiss). I recall some of the conflicts integral to the storyline dealt with a young French women's wrestling of the "rosy" ideals of Stalinism and coming to terms with the evidence of his atrocities.
It's crazy that there is no DVD out yet after all this time. If this came out on DVD, I'd buy a copy for each of my friends for Xmas. It won the prize at the Berlin film festival for crying out loud. I know its out on VHS and the Amazon sells it, but I don't really use VHS anymore.
