I have searched through the posts looking for info on Cinema Paradiso on DVD, which a friend wants for Christmas. I see that the original US DVD is no longer available, and that a longer version is available, but not yet in the US - right?? I see various opinions about which is better. I anything (new) available now? Amazon lists a new version due in 02/2003 - is that the longer version discussed? How will I know which version I am getting? Thanks for any help.
