    Being a Canadian and ordering off of CNL.com, I noticed that they had both the Canadian Alliance Atlantis and American import Miramax version of Frida. Both are two discs.

    Can anybody tell me what the Miramax version has over the Alliance version that would justify a $17 price difference for me?

    Thanks

    Brendan, there are cheaper ways to get the US version. Not sure what the difference is, though.

    No doubt, I'm just wondering if the Alliance version is like the LOTR: EE (i.e. just slapping a label on the newline dvd) or like The Pianist (horrible pal transfer)

    Off topic but similar...

    has anyone seen the DVD transfer of "food of love"? It was glorious 1.85:1 35 mm when I saw it projected theatrically...and I'm really bummed worried if the DVD is a sub-par 4x3 lbx or P/S transfer. Can anyone attest?

    The Pianist was TVA, not Alliance.

    until yesterday, Amazon.ca had both for about the same price @$27CDN; the US import being about $29CDN, but now they list only the Alliance.
