    Golgotha on DVD

    I discovered last week that Julien Duvivier's Golgotha is now available on VHS and DVD from French site PrinceMinister.

    The site is in French so I have no idea whether there are any subtitles, how reliable the company is, whether they post abroad, and if the DVD has any extras, but I imagine the DVD is Region 2 and the video will be SECAM.

    An English dubbed version is available on VHS (NTSC) from US company Hollywood's Attic.

      You can actually buy a Korean region-free DVD of the film quite inexpensively on ebay. Here's the link:

      I just got mine recently and it's wonderful! It comes only with Korean subtitles, but you can take them off. No English, but the original French holds up all by itself. You hardly need subtitles to enjoy this splendid film!

      On a related note, there is an inexpensive DVD of "Il Messia" available from the same seller:

      This one has the same subtitle issue, but suffers much more because it is largely dialogue and does not follow the Biblical story as closely. I got quite lost.

      So, there you go. More information than you needed!
