    I'm talking about the 1985 Swedish movie, not the '96 TV series.

    The original aspect ratio is 1.66:1. Incidentally, the current US DVD release is pan-and-scan not open matte and appears to be the same lousy soft transfer as the early nineties LD. (I worked at an art theater when this ran theatrically and I remember that the prints were hard matted - perhaps the negative was as well.)

    This really is a wonderful film that deserves far better. (It was a Skouras Pictures release in the US and the (US) video rights are owned by Paramount.)
