Question ID: 554678
I am looking for a movie made by a freerunning group. I first saw the
group on TBS's Ripley's Believe It or Not, hosted by Dean Cain, 4-5
years ago. The group did freerunning or parkour, which is like
skateboarding with only shoes. Either the movie or the group was
called Yamikaze, maybe both. I am not sure this is the correct
spelling of Yamikaze. I would like to know if the movie is available
to buy and where I can buy it. If I recieve an answer that fully
identifies the movie but cannot find where to purchase it, it's ok.
But there will be an added payment if purchasing information is found.

yes, that's the movie. Do you know if the movie has been translated to
English? or is it only in French? I would really like to purchase it
English, if not possible, then I would like to know where I can
purchase it. Thank you, that was a speedy response.

Will a DVD with subtitles in English be acceptable?

Rated:5 out of 5 stars
Your movie is "Yamakasi - Les samoura´s des temps modernes" (2001). 

Internet Movie Database

Several eBay merchants are currently offering the DVD, a Hong Kong
release which includes subtitles in English:

eBay: "YAMAKASI"~ Luc Besson~ French~ Eng.Sub~ (All code) DVD

eBay: Yamakasi=Luc Besson=DVD R0

eBay: Luc Besson ~ Yamakasi ~ French DVD

eBay: Yamakasi French Action Luc Besson DVD All Reg

Other options:



My search strategy in finding the name of the movie was simplified by
the fact that I remembered that Luc Besson had been involved with a
parkour movie. This is the Google search string that led me to the
movie's title:

Google Web Search: parkour "luc besson"

This search, using Froogle, was helpful in finding DVDs:

Froogle Search: yamakasi dvd

I hope this is precisely what you need! If anything is unclear or
incomplete, of if a link doesn't work for you, please request
clarification; I'll be glad to offer further assistance before you
rate my answer.
