Order DVD from Spain

A fencing Jason Isaacs--in tights, no less!! Sorry--a historical drama concerning machinations and maneuverings in the court of Spain's Philip II, erstwhile husband to England's Queen Mary Tudor and dispatcher of the ill-fated Armada. Velvet and ruffed collars. Unfortunately, it appeared only sporadically in theatres, and is tough to find even on DVD.

The most frustrating obsession ever.
If only we could be madly in love with Brad Pitt--how easy would that be, eh??

Then I tried amazon's German site; it cost 45euros, or almost $73 CDN!
Sigh.
I...I'm staggered!!
Words fail me.

I'm a big fan and tempted but $73 is a bit beyond me.

Besides I need region 1.

It would be easier... but the challenge of tracking down all the rare films is a part of the fun :D

Add to that the customs charge that I'd likely have to pay at the post office
Still, I haven't checked my lottery ticket from last night's draw........

Okay! Okay! If you find me a region 1 I'll buy it.

If I can buy The Fall Guy where he only appears for 15 seconds with a medical mask on I guess I can pay for this.
