    Anybody have any news on when this will be released? It began playing on North American screens back in mid-April, yet I've heard nothing about the DVD. Hopefully, this isn't being held up as infinitely as CITY OF GOD's been. Thanks! It's my fave of the year so far.

    Count me as another who'd love to have this gem on DVD.

    Don't know why the studio's like to lag behind on the foreign releases.

    Hopefully when this gets released in R1, it'll get the treatment it deserves.

    I'd be interested in getting this too, because it's a remarkable film. But I'm not holding my breath. It was a hard sell in theaters, and it won't sell a lot of DVDs.

    Most of Newmarket (LILYA 4-EVER's U.S. distributor) product goes out through Columbia TriStar, so I would expect it no later than, say, February.

    A truly shattering movie, I want it soon so I can direct people to it.

    If you want this and have an interest in the director then you can't buy better than the UK release.

    I can't imagine the US distributor paying to use that 95 min interview.

    I haven't heard any R1 release news.
    As noted above, Newmarket Films has the US distribution rights. I've sent them an email inquiry, & I'll post any response in this thread.

    Details on the Various European DVD Releases

    Note that Moodysson's 2000 film Together is being released on DVD by MGM in February.

    I've been thinking of importing this movie from R2. I absolutely adored F**king Amal, so I can't wait for this much longer. I'm also very happy to hear that Moodysson's other film Together is coming out soon.
