I am really surprised about all the talk about the movie "War and Peace", There are really two different versions of War and Peace. There is the short version of the King Vidor 1956 version with Audrey Hepburn. and the much longer and more complete version done by the russian director Sergei Bondarchuk done in 1968 and received an oscar for it and that lasts at least 403 minutes. I have read that there is a 500+ minutes version but have seen no link for that. Look at post no 7 by Martin Teiler.
The problem is that most people in the US are NOT familier with this version because there is no good NTSC version - only a PAL version. I have the PAL version which is region free. It is THAT version that should have a BR so people who appreciate what a good film it is.
I would recommend that when people talk about "War and Peace" they also state WHICH version they are talking about.
The version that I have has russian audio with english subtitles. While my version has a partial english audio - it is not very good.
