    Saw an import DVD of Sirens in my local Half Price Books the other day. The cover showed Elle MacPhearson standing waist-high in water, seen from the (bare) back.

    Does anyone know if this is different in content from the American version? Was what we got edited in any way? All the print was in foreign--German, I think. Is this something I should get if it's still there?

    I have seen conflicting reports about whether this is any different from the US version, with some saying it is anamorphic (unlike the POS Miramax US version). I'm pretty sure it is PAL though. I am VERY curious whether this is indeed anamorphic, as I will be wanting to order it ASAP if it is.

    Edited to add that there is apparently also an R0 Lion's Gate release from Canada with a similar cover, which if it's like everything else they've released is pan and scan (there are dozens of these on ebay for $4).

    Thanks, Jeff. If it's still there when I go back, I'll look for some indication it's Canadian. If it isn't, I may get it, then go get myself a region-free DVD player!
