    I was looking at a Canadian DVD site, and I saw a pre-order for the acclaimed film Kandahar, coming May 14.

    The DVD appears to be anamorphic and with a ton of extra features: commentary, making-of and the like.

    This movie was just at my local art-house theatre about a month or two ago and I haven't heard anything yet about a US release.

    I'm thinking of getting it since I heard so many great things about it and I missed it. Does anyone know if the US version is coming? I'd hate to wait months for it and then it turn up bare-bones.

    I wanted to post the info here in case anyone else was interested in this movie on DVD.

    I saw this film again on TV last month... very surprising. It was being shown on a local TV station in its original language with subtitles, and in its OAR!!! I couldn't believe it! [​IMG]
    Anyway, this is a film that everyone should see especially because of its relevance to the recent events in Afghanistan. I haven't heard any news of a U.S. DVD release for this film, but it may not be such a bad idea to import the Canadian edition.

    See this thread for more details.
    According to my studio contact I will have a review copy in my hands tommorow [​IMG]. He's already sent me the booklet and full cover art.

    I have what appears to be the first review of this disc and it's now online over at MadmanMark.com
    It's an excellent release. Seville did a bang up job on this one.

    Great review! I was stunned when I read that the bitrate was "at an average of 9.9 Mb per second"!!! Along with "Amélie", this DVD is giving Canadian releases a good reputation. [​IMG]

    Thank you very much Mark

    None of the Canadian sites have UPC codes, like say image or dvdempire. It can be difficult to hunt them down.

    Actually none is the wrong word, chapters.indigo.com sometimes has UPC codes.
