Does anyone know if the upcoming French HD-DVD release of L'Armée des ombres will include English subs? I haven't been able to find much information regarding this release.

With the Criterion SD-DVD coming out tomorrow, I figured I'd ask about the HD version before I picked it up.

I just added this to my Amazon France order since it seems to have Finnish subs and seems like a very interesting movie based on IMDB comments. Surprisingly IMDB shows a Finnish poster for this movie as thumbnail.

There's also a German release.
Don't know if that will have different subs from the French release.

Since they are both Studio Canal and the French release includes German subs, it's most likely the same disc with German cover papers.

It's known as "Army of Shadows" or "The Shadow Army" in the US. It's a fantastic film, I just wish my French was a little better so I could pick up this release.

The French release will be the same in Germany.
On the same date RAN is also due to release, however, also w/o English subs.

If you want to know more about those two discs, see www.area-hd.de (with English specs, so you dont have to quote French sites )

If anyone has this and can confirm that it has French subs, I'd appreciate it. I'm looking to get it for my dad, who's working on his French.

Thanks!

Sorry, no French subs, just the French audio.
