    The International Smash Is Back Like You`ve Never Seen Or Heard It Before!
    Certificate: R
    Running Time: 118 mins
    Retail Price: $24.98
    Release Date:

    When young Paris messenger Jules (Frédéric Andre) makes an illegal live recording of a beautiful American opera singer (Wilhelmina Wiggins Fernandez), he becomes the target of Taiwanese music pirates. But when that tape becomes confused with a cassette of murder evidence, Jules also finds himself hunted by a team of ruthless assassins. Welcome to an unforgettable Parisian underworld of teenage shoplifting, exquisite opera and odd philosophy - where reality is always a matter of design and love can be the most surprising aria of all.

    Diva is a stunning combination of quirky romance, black comedy, savage action (including it`s infamous subway motorcycle chase) and gorgeous music that took the movie world by storm. Considered to be one of the most stylish and influential thrillers of the last 20 years, this international classic has now been newly transferred from original source materials for the first time ever.

    A pretty and Unique film. Loaded with style and feeling. Both Sexy and Original, well presented here by Anchor Bay, who are usually trustworthy and come up trumps on this one too...
