A pipipip project about which he says: “This French thriller with a star cast is only available as a weak DVD in UK. The picture is 4:3 letterboxed and the English subtitles are burnt in. Some time ago the movie was shown on German TV. I recorded it and tried to remove the TV station logo. This time it worked not 100% because the logo had opaque regions where some interpolation had to be used to eliminate it. But apart from that the video looks much better than on the DVD.The subtitles are captured from the UK-DVD and converted to proper soft subs which can be switched off if you don’t want them. The movie starts in German if the preferred audio language of your DVD player is German, in French without subs if the player language is French and in all other circumstances in French with English subs.


“A disturbed young woman is kept prisoner in a castle by her aunt for her money. The game-keeper, her guardian, tries to rape her but she escapes. In her flight she meets a man also running away from two killers.” [imdb]
