I note from www.blackstar.co.uk (see link http://www.blackstar.co.uk/video/item/7000000066120) that Fanny and Alexander is to be released in R2 next month. I note the running time is 309 minutes, which means it is the original mini-series, rather than the cut-down film released theatrically. However, it appears to be one disc only, which unless it is a DVD-18 (a first for Artifical Eye) isn't possible. Does anyone know whether the R2 version will, in fact, be the extended TV version or the shorter theatrical one? Either version would be great, but as I've never seen the mini-series, I would be especially interested in this.
