I just noticed a couple of Giancarlo Giannini titles on this website, Lili Marleen and Francesca and Annunziata. It seems that most places only sell the most popular titles and somtimes dubbed versions, which I absolutely hate, where can you purchase some obscure titles?

The British company MovieMail(www.moviem.co.uk)is the one i use for renting as well as buying world cinema videos by mail order.They stock all the videos/dvd's available in Britain and some deleted titles,though there are still many international films that aren't available at present unfortunately.Their rental service is particularly useful,i find,as a relatively cheap way to get to see films the TV channels and local cinemas wouldn't show.Before that,having to buy films unseen was an expensive business!They're much more efficient than many companies i've come across.

Here is a site based in Chicago that has a mail rental service for the continental USA. Their sales side also has an immense variety, and includes some early videos that I have not seen available elsewhere.

http://www.facets.org/

I tried to join their mail rental service but they would not extend the service to Canada.

They have many vhs titles that I am considering purchasing, (not available elsewhere in either dvd or vhs) but I haven't placed any orders yet.

Thanks John for being so kind to e-mail me. I will try facets video,they are a good company. The one in the U.K. I am sure only sells the pal version and of course I need the NSTC video for the U. S.

www.dvdplanet.com is the best place to buy foreign movies.You can buy foreign movies %35 or more off,such as some of the top 100 films of this site and I also recommend Criterion Collection for this genre.

johnn-1 beat me to the punch. I believe Johnn has given you the most valuable resource in locating films and especially foreign films. Facets is going to be your best bet. Good luck!

i am lookin for foreign movies that are erotic but not x rated. love movies with a plot but have erotic scenes but at the same time tasteful . american movies would not show explicit scenes on regular tv and foreign countries allow that. love prison woman type movies anytypes. so if anyone has suggestions would love to hear them
