It's a really dark movie. I don't think I remember most of the story as I remember the music. It has some poetic feeling about it, the struggle for freedom, for love... it is, after all, a love story. I have the DVD, which can be found in almost every discount bin here in Mexico, and I think it's a nice thing to have. I believe it doesn't have any booklet (I'm not home right now, can't check) and it has, indeed, subtitles in spanish. The main menu features the song 'Dream of Thee', which is abruptly cut just before it sings "No I can't dream of thee".

I don't now what else to say about it. The movie is not bad at all, if you like dark movies (as in very violent/explicit) and the love story has a sometimes frustrating longing feeling. Not bad for about 4.00USD, hahaha :D.

The Mexican DVD has no booklet but a single sided sheet, nice touch though. FURIA is a good film and has an inspiring sense of hope which I liked despite the fact that the film brought back bad and sad memories of the Argentinian military government.

By the way, there is an authoring error in the DVD, at least in my copy. A part of the movie is repeated (and the second time it lacks the subtitles).

Talking about Mexican releases, I am looking for the edited (as the vinyl) CD of INNUENDO. Also for the MADE IN HEAVEN CD with the original version of Let Me Live (as in the Hollywood Records advance listening promo cassette).

Does anybody know if there's an English translated version available??? I don't speak Spanish at all, and just a little bit of French (don't think it's good enough to understand a movie)....

It's funny for me to read that someone's looking for a couple of "rare" items which I think I brought up in this board.

The edited CD of Innuendo, which I used to have but sold it (I'm now trying to get it back) is nothing really special: a regular silver CD (as in, no colors over the CD) that has the edited versions of some songs.

I think I mentioned here a couple of years ago (maybe) how surprised I was to hear the "full" version of Bijou, because I had only heard the edited version (just over one minute) and a lot of people jumped over me saying that there was no CD with those versions. :S

The same happened with the Made in Heaven CD with the original version of Let Me Live. I even uploaded an MP3 of the song and scanned the cover and booklet of the album. I remember a comment by PenGuru saying that I was "confused" or "mistaken" and that I had, in fact, the regular version. Of course, that wasn't the case (It's just a comment, I wasn't mad at him or anyone).

I have always thought about myself being a regular small scale collector. I just was lucky to find those CD's... :D

Just a comment, here.. hehe
