"Un jour mon père viendra" hits DVD.... in RUSSIA. (WOT?!)

Well bonjour, bel homme. o_O 

So in a completely random bit of home video shenanigans, even though Un jour mon père viendra is not yet on DVD in its native country, it is has just been released in Russia. I know - QUOI?!?! But there we have it.  And thanks to that excellent Russian Hornblower comm that has their finger on the pulse of the news about all the ex-Indy boys, we also have some AMAZING screencaps. Like the one you see above. Oof. 

You can see several more screencaps at the comm HERE.  But here's a teaser (which it should go without saying constitutes SPOILERS of a sort) behind the cut...

EDIT: She just added ten more shots, go look! (HELLO.)

Many thanks to Liliya_M for posting those to drive us a little crazy tide us over until a Region 1 or 2 DVD arrives. ;)

BONUS TRIVIA!: Check this out, because it made me laugh - I did a bit of research (while sitting here during our company luncheon, sipping a Corona - it's Quatro de Mayo! Oh, hush…), and it appears that the Russian title of UJMPV is Papashi 2 (Daddy 2). Which made no sense to me at all… and then I did a little MORE Googling and discovered that Daddy was the Russian title of Les compères, the 1983 Gerard Depardieu/Pierre Richard comedy that bears an ever so slight resemblance to UJMPV in that... uh, it involves two potential fathers and it's French and it's a comedy.  So it would appear that Russia has decided that UJMPV is the sequel to a movie that is nearly 30 years old. Hilarious. ;)

Hee. I think they just got REALLY lucky this time being the ones to get the movie on DVD first! But they posted images rather quickly, so bless them. спасибо, you guys!! (I love that Google displays Cyrillic in general search now...)

I'm leaving work in a hot minute, but I seriously can't stop staring at that last shot. I told y'all, the pink is KICKIN'. ;)

Hey. My nickname in the Russian coo Hornblower is Liliya_M. (I do not have LJ, so I write anonymously.)
I am very glad that you liked my caps, are now added 10 more.
Zegeekgirl, thanks for the Russian "спасибо"!)

On the wrong movie title "Papashi 2" (Daddy 2)))) ... Those who did it, I think, are well aware that this film has no relation to the comedy of 1983! This is just a PR stunt! Yes, it is very unfair, but perhaps (?) effective.
Russian people have long and very fond of the French comedy! Especially popular have been Pierre Richard. I also watched a movie "Les Compères" in my childhood...
I think Jamie Bamber is now in Russia will have more fans. He showed himself as a great comic actor! I hope that after such a great debut in the comedy, the French filmmakers would invite him in their films. I very much want to see the new comedy with Jamie!
(Excuse my bad English!)

Once again, thank you. We very much appreciate the sneak peak in advance of the DVD release in France and Canada. And I know I'd love for him to do more comedy. Hopefully, he'll get a chance again soon.

Hee, yeah I figured it was a PR manner of getting more people to pick up the DVD, but still quite amusing. ;) Thanks for posting those, Liliya, it was a lovely surprise!

Nice caps, thanks for linking. The wedding attire is cracking me up!

I got distracted by the shifting sands outtake video on that site which is ADORABLE!!!! But my god Jamie has aged well!

No offense to Young Jamie, but if he hadn't aged so damn well, I don't know that this site would exist. ;)

I agree! I want to pinch his cheeks, but even back then I doubt I would have thought he was hot. Then there's photo number 1 above...I mean 2, er, 3 NO! 4. Okay, photo number 5 shows all his glorious hotness. (Most of it, anyway!)

Anyone know where to get English subtitles for the movie? I was able to find a copy of the movie on the 'net. But it's all French, and it's been a long time since French in high school so it doesn't help me! ;)

Until it releases in the US got to do what you got to do.
asta77 From: asta77 Date: May 23rd, 2012 04:51 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Amazon Canada has it available (with English subtitles) for pre-order. The Canadian and US dollar are practically equal right now. Though I'm assuming shipping would be a bit higher. I still need to place my order. :)

Oh really? I did not know this. I'll have to check it out.

Thanks a million!
