    I have been doing some searching at amazon.de and apparently there is a cool anamorphic version of Breakdown available with a cool documentary etc. The german Conan the Destroyer also looks quite cool. And a Vampires DTS is listed too. But I think it is dubbed in German.

    Surely nobody would do an exclusive anamorphic transfer for a non US country, it must be an some up-convertion, ha ha!

    Yes, the german Breakdown DVD is very good, but be advised that there is a small cut at the end of the film. Here's what the imdb says:

    "In the US version you see how Kathleen Quinlan moves the gearshift of the truck to allow it to fall. In the German version this was cut, the truck just crashes down by itself".

    I heard that this was cut by director Jonathan Mostow himself, but I don't know why or even if this is true.
