Honestly, the only place that you will probably find the tape is through
grey market video places like Video Search of Miami, plus it will most
likely have English subtitles. Don't always advocate what they do, but they
can be a saving grace to international cinema fans often at the mercy of a
market dominated by major studios and distrib companies. It would be nice
for people to be able to get something other than Kurowsawa, Itami or Shall
We Dance in North American video stores.
