I've noticed that TOO MANY people have ruined many products on Amazon before they're even sold with their uptight fierce complaints disguised as 'reviews'!
That unfortunately has happened also with THIS DVD! All I can say is BUY IT! IT'S GREAT! No complaints!....
Now, the reason I am so "FOR" this release is I've had a VHS copy of this film for years [on the 'Embassy Home Video' label] and it was fine. It had the english dubbed-in voices & NO 'subtitles'. I got THAT copy after FIRST seeing it on the SCI-FI channel in 1995, [although I've heard of this movie ever since I can remember!] and later bought a "Video YesterYear" release that had faded colour & a whole scene cut out! Like most of us movie & TV on home video fans, I've been looking for a 'DVD' release....and THIS is IT!!
Sure everyone whines about the infamous 'subtitles', but criminey! HOW many other 'foreign' [YES! 'FOREIGN'] films out there have them?? The soundtrack of this DVD version has the beautiful original French dialogue & music - OR -the option of the English dubbed version, which sounds like it's coming over the telephone for some strange reason[?] So, I recommend watching it with the original 'French' and THEN the non-removable subtitles work PERFECTLY! You'll be GLAD they ARE there!
The BEST part of this DVD version is the inclusion of the earlier 3 Rene Laloux films 'Monkeys Teeth' 'Dead Times' & 'The Snails'! That's the MAIN reason I BOUGHT this! Then again, I'm into obscure foreign animation from the past and don't go berserk if there are 'subtitles'... Yes, they COULD have issued the DVD with 'Closed Captioning', THEN you could remove the subtitles if you want, but they didn't, so there.

Contrary to the bulk of the reviews, I didn't have a problem with the subtitles. I recommend setting your preferences to French with English subtitles. The film is incredibly imaginative, and held me spellbound by the power of its invention. Well worth the price of the DVD, and a welcome addition to my collection.

Format: DVD
I didn't expect much from the story. I bought it because I love this style of animation. Some of the scenes were very psychedelic, almost like an acid trip. It turns out that the story was actually the most entertaining part of the movie for me. It definitely gives you a different perspective of human life.
The DVD included four interesting shorts put out by the creator. Most of them included live action as well as animation. The only reason I can't give a full 5 stars is because the subtitles are HORRIBLE. Among the worst i've ever seen. There's little contrast between the background and the text, so about 75% of the words are legible. I really don't understand why the publishers thought this would be acceptable. I took French for several years, but I can imagine how frustrating it would be for someone trying to read that text.

First of all, I love the movie and have long wanted to have it on DVD. The quality of the DVD seems fine to me, but it is clear someone did not take the time to consider the subtitle treatment. You can view the movie either with a French or English audio track, but in both cases you have to look at subtitles in English: you have no option to turn the subtitles off. Yes, you're reading this right: the English audio track option includes subtitles for the French translation of the English! A large portion of the reason I enjoy animated features is, not surprisingly, for the animation, and the white wording at the bottom of the screen is annoying and distracting; moreover, it wrecks the lower portion of the movie visually. I have the English version on VHS, without subtitles. Until this DVD is redone, that's the version I'll be watching. Because I speak French, I also want to be able to watch this movie in French without subtitles! I've never encountered a film moved to DVD with a treatment this inept.

YOU CAN'T TURN THEM OFF, PEOPLE!!! AND they run right over the picture, not even in the black letterboxed space beneath! AND (and even if you could forgive not being able to turn them off, this next one is really too, too much to take) MORE THAN HALF THE TIME THEY DON'T MATCH THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION!!!! This last bit takes it from annoying to insufferable. I love Fantastic Planet, and I hate, hate, hate this DVD.

The Fantastic Planet is one of my all time favorite animations. I can watch this movie again and again and get lost in its trippy/dreamy animations and hypnotic music. However, I cannot imagine the extreme idiocy involved in ruining a perfect piece of art by not allowing the user to remove the subtitles when the audio is in the same language!!! I have to say we're talking about IQ's of less than 10 here. But, nonetheless, the movie is so amazing that I would still consider buying it. Just like a blind man learns to get around by touch, someone watching this movie can learn to take in the movie without letting those aweful subtitles ruin the entire experience. So, I would recommend this movie... just expect it to be a slightly painful experience. Whatever production studio that made this does NOT know what they're doing obviously.
