Mongol, the Oscar-nominated Russian film about Genghis Khan, is released on DVD Oct 14, 2008 according to Netflix and I have it saved. I hope there is enough interest in the movie for Netflix to grab some copies (Although with Cold War 2 starting today over in the Democratic Republic of Georgia, I hope Russian DVDs don't get embargoed before I get my hands on it.)
The original version of Al Pacino's "Scent of a Woman," the 1974 Italian film "Profumo di Donna" is due to be released on a Region 1 DVD on February 16, 2010. It stars Vittorio Gassman, who won the Best Actor award at Cannes for his performance in it. Sadly it's not listed by Netflix, and I don't know why. I've spoken to Customer Service about this and hope others will also call.
scent of a woman is really a good movie I saw it on the big screen when it came out. I would sure like to see it at home again.. thanks for reminding me. I am making list of new unreleased foreign films. http://www.tiny.cc/dfwforeign2010
