There has been a discussion (well it turned into much more) about the non-availability of the video to Furia on QOL. The simple question is, or was' "Does anyone here know of, where to get, or have, an English sub-titled version of Furia?"

Krisssl, one of the contributors, found a Spanish subtitled copy (used I think) on Ebay, but it seems that either an English sub-titled version was never issued, or it has been simply withdrawn.

Answers on a postcard pleae :-)

I was really surprised to see how common it is to find this movie in DVD and even VHS here in Mexico. The first time I rented it at my local Blockbuster Video, then I bought it in a regular supermarket for about 10USD or something like that. Now it's in the discout bin in every movie or record store. Maybe it's the same version you saw on Ebay, since it has only spanish subtitles.

So is the film any good, and does the music fit in well? The CD sounds great! I think Brian could probably do some great soundtracks if he wanted to

Funny thing is, I don't know, I've never seen it. But the CD is like the curate's egg - good and bad in parts (bad is too strong, perhaps unusual and an acquired tase is better).

I'm tempted to go for the one on Ebay, but it is in French with Spanish subtitles, neither of which I speak or write.

Like the 'Fellowship's' quest, the search will continue.

Hi Wiley,

If this is as commn as you say, could you find a new, unopened copy and post the price please? It would be good to compare against the one on Ebay.

Yeah, but you're listening to it out of context, remember. I like it, it has quite a dark sense in places and then some delicate stuff like the flute solo part (if I remember it correctly).

Really wish the film would be released over here!

Its always difficult and sound-tracks are often not good pieces when taken on their own.

I really don't think we'll find an English language version (or subtitles) it seemed to be one of those movies that went straight to video and then to the remainder bin. Its a great shame because there are some really gripping pieces from BHM on the CD.
