Looking forward to checking this out, assuming we get the original soundtrack and not just an English dub.

The price is disappointing.

It wasn't released here theatrically with an English track, so I wouldn't count on it being included here.

Great movie! I was hoping that since Sony has decided to release bombs like "Youth Without Youth" and "Sleuth" to Blu-ray, that they would give us a go at a smaller Sony Classics release that actually did some business and got incredible acclaim. I can't wait to own this one.

No need for an English dub. Original language track is just as important as OAR.

I wouldn't mind an English track. It is a cartoon so I am pretty sure it wouldn't really be noticable. The book was originally written in French and then dubbed to English and it didn't take away from the experience for me when I read it.

It looks like it will get an English track as well anyway. Amazon has Sean Penn and Iggy Pop listed as voices and I know they worked on the English track.

Awesome! I heard all of the positive reviews for this but held off hoping to see it on Blu-ray, thanks Sony.

This will look very very cool in HD! I'm still wondering why Sony didn't release I'm Not There in Blu-Ray though.

Cover art at DVD Empire says that it includes both the French and English tracks in TrueHD.

Probably because Weinstein owns the distro rights.
