Some of the finest films in French cinema for a stupid price, only £2.65 each. Featuring the cream of French actors of the time, Emmanuelle Riva, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Lino Ventura, Catherine Deneuve, Alain Delon etc.

From a quick search, individual films go for between £6 and £12 or so depending on the title. Plenty of good reviews/info at IMDB if you're interested:

This is an excellent price for a great director. It's a shame that they haven't included Le samouraï, which is one of my favourite films. Un Flic is also an absolute classic.

I quite agree about Le samourai, particularly because it's impossible to find Region 2 without paying a fortune!
