Default Why is Les Triplettes de Belleville so hard to find?

Having a hell of a time tracking this title down. Did it sell poorly or were only a few pressed?

it was only pressed in France, which is a much smaller country than the US... so less buyers = less pressings. If you can find it though, pick it up, it's a fun flick, and great for kids.

I just bought a new copy for around $45 delivered from a french auction site called priceminister.

A little more than I wanted to pay but this disc is very hard to obtain as it had a very small pressing for france only.

I didn't want to wait for mediadis as I don't believe they will get any more stock as the title has been out of print for ages. (unless they are starting up HD DVD production lines which I highly doubt)

I have been after this film for an absolute age.

I gave up on it.


I'll just wait it out (on BD), or hopefully stumble upon it one day.

It's not that good of a movie you know but the artistic style is pleasant to watch.

This is a great movie (94% on Rotten Tomatoes, in fact). It's artistically my favorite animated movie and one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. I just wish I'd bought a few extra copies when they were on sale at Amazon.fr for 10 euros. I was going to, because I thought it would be rare later, but I chickened out and besides I had other stuff I needed to buy.
