    Hey-
    Sorry if this is a repeat thread, but I don't see anything that this might work with. I am trying to find a place to import Danish R2 DVDs - Amazon doesn't do it and the few Danish (.dk) online retailers I found don't have shipping options to the US.

    Anyone with any ideas? I'm trying to get a pretty mainstream, easy to find on DVD retails sites from Denmark dvd shipped to the US.

    Thanks!

    I've used laserdisken.com a couple of times with fine results. However, you will need to have some form of Danish-English directory to hand (I used an online one) as the page is in danish. You can email them to make sure your order has gone through properly. I did this and got a reply (in english) within the hour.

    I wouldn't worry about the language barrier. A huge percentage of Scandanavians speak English (usually humblingly well), so an enquiry is likely to be forthcoming to any questions you have.

    Thanks so much for the help - Laserdisken actually doesn't have the same edition it appears.

    I'm looking for Prozac Nation - was put out on R2 Danish and an R5 Russian - there is one version of the R2 release with tons of special features and widescreen cut. I found it on DVDstrax/com and Ebay for an absurd amount. Dvdstrax doesn't have shipping to US, but I did email them. Has anyone ever used them?

    Any other sites that seem to work for Danish R2 to the US? Also what translator do you use? The only one I know, Babelfish, doesn't have Danish.

    THANKS so much!!!

    Thanks! How do you (if you do) translate the site? Sometimes it's pretty easy to navigate regardless of the language, but sometimes a little help is good so you know you are putting the right info in the right spot! Also do they ship to the US?

    Thanks SO MUCH!
