    Thanks a lot, Juan! Mine's already on its way from Amazon.de. I was wondering about the interviews, as, according to DVD Compare, the UK edition has "three hours" of interviews, and I wasn't sure if the German edition had these. It apears it does, and seems to then be the definitive version. However, it does seem to omit the UK feature :Behind-The-Scenes (inc SFX) featurette, with director’s commentary (21 min)". Also DVD Compare states "B-Roll Footage" should be present on the German version. All in all, I can't wait to receive this set! I'm a huge Natali fan, and I also just ordered the French 2-disc edition of Cube, as companion for my R1 Sigtanure edition, since it appears to have a ton of exclusive extras. The Canadian DVD of Natali's other film, Nothing, is a good one, but I wish there would be more included on it. In the commentary they state there were some extended scenes and one deleted scene that they decided not to include. That's a shame... The making-of on Nothing though includes very short excerpts from Natali's early shorts, which was pretty cool.
