My grown son has loved Asterix since he was 7 years old. Whenever my wife and I visit Canada, we look for the most recent editions to complement his rather large collection. We've known of this film for some time and were quite pleased to find that it had been released on DVD for Region 1. However, the technical information provided on IMDB is minimal and while we knew it was in French, we assumed that the DVD would (especially in the very PC Canada)include English sub-titles. Mon Dieu! It does not. Be warned: this is a French language DVD. Sub-titles are inexcusably absent. It is beautifully filmed, acted, and edited. The world-class comedic actors look as if they have stepped from the pages of the wonderful stories. But, please, what are they saying?
