    The U.S. R1 release won't be until Febuary and it looks like a bare bones release. I did see that the Canadian R1 Alliance Atlantis release is a 2-Disc set, with many features on it. Can anyone comment on the specs for this release or even the cover art. I did not see this film yet, but I have heard many good things about it.

    Disc 1 contains a very nice widescreen anamorphic transfer of the film with removable English & French subtitles, in case any of your friends are fluent in Inuktitut. There's also a text-based "fact-track" with interesting facts about the film and culture in yellow subtitles which can be turned on and off. The 5.1 track is surprisingly effective in several instances,

    Disc 2 features :

    Navigate Through the Legend
    Production Diary
    Filmmaker Biographies
    Cast & Crew
    A Look at Art Direction
    Photo Galley ( playable as a slideshow if desired )
    Trailer
    About Igloolik Isumo

    Most of the supplements on Disc 2 are text based with only limited video material totalling at most 15 minutes

    Cover features a large head shot of the lead actor in his fur-lined hood with the arctic landscape at the bottom of the cover.
