Water Drops On Burning Rocks DVD

All products on the Atomic Movies website are marked with the relevant region coding

Blu-Ray: All titles are Region B (Aust/NZ/UK) or Region All.

What is Region Coding?

A security system introduced to DVD at the request of Hollywood's major studios to ensure that DVDs released and sold in one region will not play on DVD machines in other regions. Movie distributors therefore maintain control over release dates of their films, as well as enabling discs to be produced that conform to different censorship laws, language and subtitle requirements. When a DVD disc is manufactured, a region code is applied at the authoring stage such that the final disc will play only on those players distributed in the designated world region.

There are 6 regions throughout the world:

Region 1 - Canada, United States and its Territories 
Region 2 - Japan, Europe, South Africa and the Middle East
Region 3 - Southeast Asia and East Asia
Region 4 - Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central and South America 
Region 5 - Indian Subcontinent, Former Soviet Union and Africa 
Region 6 - China

Many newer DVD players are already set to All Region and can play DVDs from any region. It is also possible to unlock many players and we may be able to help if you email with the make & model of your player.

Some studios are now releasing their titles as All Region or Dual Region, this information is given on each listing, these titles will play in Australian dvd players however may not play in Game consoles outside the country of the original issue.

If you have any doubt of about the suitability of the title you are intending to purchase please contact us for further information as refunds or exchanges are not available for incorrect items once the plastic seal has been breached.

Berlin, 1970. Leopold (Bernard Giraudeau) is a 50-year-old businessman who has begun a very insular love affair with Franz (Malik Zidi) a 20-year-old toy boy who enjoys the attention and his dominance over his ever-pleasing lover. But as time evolves, obsession grows and finally their secluded tryst is destroyed when Franz's ex-girlfriend and Leopold's ex-lover reappear, bringing with them a collision of emotions and a sinful proposition.

Francois Ozon's WATER DROPS ON BURNING ROCKS is a scathing examination of a suffocating relationship, and the consequences of love, obsession, and aggression. It is also a Queer classic. Based on a play by the late Rainer Werner Fassbinder (QUERELLE), one of cinema's great gay directors, who died in 1982 at age of 36, having completed an astonishing 40 films. Ozon draws heavily from Fassbinder, setting this farce in a chic, art deco apartment and relying on tight camera work, impeccable acting and his skills as a film maker to set sparks flying.
