    Since this movie apparently will never play near me, has there been any rumblings on when this might appear on DVD? Is it out in any region yet? I would think it would be out in the US by Christmas but I haven't heard a word yet.
    Thanks
    Doug

    Netflix is taking reservations on this title, and they show it as arriving November 2001. They must know something to be able to do this.
    Then, again, I have rented at least one DVD from them that's not out in the market yet.
    Go figure.

    It comes out in Germany on Oct 4th. No English subtitles. The R1 DVD will have a commentary track with Tom Tykwer, Franka Potente and Benno Fürmann. This commentary won't be on the German disc. I don't know when the R1 version will be released, but it will probably be a product of Sony Pictures Classics, like Run Lola Run was.

    Thanks Lawrence!
    I can't imagine R1 will get a 2-disc set of this non-mainstream film.. but man I'm hoping.
    I just hope it makes it in R1 by Christmas.

    Last night I did happen to notice that Amazon now has a page for it, though no date/no pre-order.
    'tis my favorite film of the year, thus far.

    It just came out in theaters here in Montreal today. I guess I'll follow your recommendations and go see it! [​IMG]

    Hi Doug,
    I am also anticipating this release on DVD. It's one of my favorite films of the year. I doubt the R1 will be a 2 disc release with DTS. Oh well. By the way, the soundtrack is great and contains songs inspired by the film, as opposed to songs that were just "inserted" into it, like you have in most soundtracks.

    Michael,
    Who's the distributor in Montreal? The distributor who puts out Sony Picture Classics' films here in Canada, went bankrupt earlier this year, so I thought there'd be no chance of seeing it until DVD.

    First things first, sorry for not being able to add any Region 2 titles lately, I'd been flooded with biz matters.
    as for the Princess & The Warrior, or in its German variant: 'Der Krieger und die Kaiserin', the upcoming October 4th 2 disc-set will feature a 2.35 PAL anamorphic widescreen transfer (make sure your system support PAL viewing system) as well as both DD5.1 and DTS German audio tracks (no English audio track)... so, another title denied from the English only speakers ? Fear NOT. the title will include both English and German subtitles.
    supplements wise, the first feature disc will ostentatiously feature 2 audio commentaries, one with director Tom Tykwer and the 2nd with Frank Griebe and Mathilde Bonnefoy. Disc 2 will sport a making-of featurette, a few deleted scenes, Special effects making-of, Pale 3 feat. Skin music video 'You can't find peace' and a making-of, storyboard-film comparison, a teaser-trailer, bios and filmos.
    I will try to find the time and add a review in the next couple of weeks.
    Take good care,
    Omer
