Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Import Blu-Ray/Region All pressing.

Francais Pour Une Nuit is an electrifying full length live DVD. The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse -that is, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo- ride into Nimes and make their entrance into the Coliseum, through the gladiator's tunnel, before performing an explosive set of Metallica music. Fans can also look forward to some exclusive backstage footage.

Francais Pour Une Nuit is unique in that not only was it filmed in France, but ALL aspects of the project are French, other than the band themselves, of course! The concert was filmed, recorded, and edited with French camera and recording crews; the artwork was created by a French design team (including a one-of-a-kind special package); even credits are in French.

The band took their mammoth 'World Magnetic' tour on the road last year, which broke the record for the biggest attendance at London's 02 Arena last September, and broke it again in March 2009. Metallica returned to the UK in August for a triumphant headline slot at the Sonisphere Festival.

Including 2 hours of the show, 37 minute interview of the band, 5 videos from the audience/16 page booklet, Francais Pour Une Nuit i sthe ultimate Metallica live experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Historically Breath Taking January 2, 2010
This Metallica show is just simply amazing because it takes place in a roman like colisem from ancient roman times. The sound of the show is stunning and the four horse men are in their true form. Again the location makes this show a priceless treasure for any Metallica fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it on amazon November 29, 2009
By Zane
As of the time of this review amazon has this for $54(discounted from $100), you can buy it for $20 on metallicas official site. The dvd is great, but not worth the price of a concert ticket.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best shows ever March 27, 2010
This live show is one of the best ones I have ever seen on dvd. I love Metallica nd have been listening to them since the early eighties. On this dvd, every single song sounds new and fresh. There is a great undercurrent of energy running throughout the show. It feels like an intimate performance with the band. Wonderfully shot and edited I've watched it several times and it's still not old. Plus there is the lengthy interview with the band members that to me is a wonderfully added bonus. If you like Metallica, you'll love this disc. If you like an awesome live performance that you can watch repeatedly, you'll love this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars SOLID CONCERT BLU RAY! May 20, 2010
After MUCH digging for a DECENT price on this,I picked it up from Amazon.UK. $23 USD (w/ shipping) and got it relatively quick too.For a while I'd been waiting for another awesome concert dvd/bluray,and this one does NOT dissapoint! I was at first deciding between the Mexico one and this one.After hearing the complaints about the Mexico one having no "concert only" option(meaning there were breaks between each song,interviews,etc) I went for this France concert-18 tracks of pure Metallica -straight through,and songs from almost EVERY album (including the new one(2009)which is what I wanted)The audio is EXCELLENT and the picture is stunning.At first,I was a LITTLE nervous,wondering "am I going to be able to even navigate the menu?.in French?" BUT,you get language options(and audio options,go with DTS,if you can-amazing)If you're really into picture/audio QUALITY concert blu rays-PICK IT UP..But shop around!-not sure why they don't have a U.S. version..hmmmm...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Concert July 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for this DVD for so long and after the waiting I have enjoyed the concert more than four times since I bought it. If you have the possibility to play the concert in a Home-theater system you will love it.
Excellent concert and the venue is just amazing.
Metallica Rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray PQ and Sound will blow you away! April 8, 2010
By Duane
Picture,sound,setlist,and performance are incredible,although performance wise I felt the Mexico show had more energy.Synchronization issues drive me crazy,so I was concerned when I read on multiple sites that this was a problem with this disc.I have studied both audio options and found no issues,so I can only conclude that a)there were some defective discs ,or more likely b)it is equipment related(ex:entry level blu ray players with low quality processors combined with 60 hz lcd's).I have a late model Toshiba 240hz tv,late model Marantz sr6004 amp,and Oppo BDP83.Both amp and Blu ray player have lipsynch correction,and the combination of these quality components has eliminated a lot of the synch issues I have had on other discs.Just a theory,and on a different note,I live in Canada and ordered this disc from Amazon UK.It took 11 days to the door at $22 canadian all in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the Mexico show.
I really have been out of the Metallica ring for a long time mainly because they haven't done anything worthy for years. Death Magnetic (while descent) was nothing stellar. Read more
