Dear Marilyn,

not quite what you want (without PPR and region code 2) but better than
nothing (and in a way more than your French professors might expect).

Producer and director Marin Karmitz (MK2) has published a first class
box of his films on DVD in France last year(in French with English
subtitles):

Coffret Marin Karmitz 4 DVD : Coup pour coup / Camarades / Sept jours
ailleurs / Nuit noire, Calcutta
http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00008BCVA/qid=1080233925/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_0_1/402-1528107-0210550

Included is the classic documentary short "La reprise du travail aux
usines Wonder" (not to be missed!)

On the discs are bonus films as follows (from the amazon.fr site):
• Les préfaces de Serge Kaganski
• "Citroën Naterre, mai-juin 1968, chronique d'une grève" d'Edouard
Hayem (65 min)
• "La reprise du travail aux usines Wonder" de Jacques Willemont (10
min)
• "Le conflit Lip 1973-1974" de Dominique Dubosc
• Le journal du tournage de "Coup pour coup", document exclusif commenté
par Martin Karmitz (121 min)
• "Les idoles", court-métrage documentaire inédit de Martin Karmitz (9
min)
• Les entretiens avec Martin Karmitz, Serge July, Louis Joinet, Olivier
Rolin, Catherine Martin, Yann Giquel

The DVD box is a great help to study the historical background of that
time in France.

The 28th of April Karmitz will publish a 2 disc special edition of "Coup
pour Coup" (in French with English subtitles) with even more bonus
films:

DVD 1:
• Le film (1h26)
• La préface de Serge Kaganski (3')
• Marin Karmitz parle de la sortie de "Coup pour coup" (7 min)
• L'interview de Serge July, directeur de Libération (25 min)
• L'interview de Louis Joinet, avocat général à la Cour de cassation de
Paris (15 min)
• L'interview d'Olivier Rolin, écrivain (dirigeant de la Gauche
Prolétarienne à l'époque de la sortie du film) (20 min)
• La bande-annonce du film

DVD 2:
• Le journal du tournage de "Coup pour coup", commenté par Marin Karmitz
(121 min)
• "Le conflit Lip 1973-1974" de Dominique Dubosc (63 min)
• La présentation de Dominique Dubosc (10 min)

http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00018QUD2/qid=1080234755/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_16_2/402-1528107-0210550

"La Chinoise" is available on DVD from Cinefil Imagica in Japan (in
French without English subtitles, NTSC, but region code 2) via this mail
order shop
http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=COBM-5210

For all the discs mentioned here you need a multi region DVD-player. The
discs from France are in PAL. So you need a multinorm DVD-player.

with kind regards
