    Does anyone know where I can get the box set of Riget 1 & 2? I heard there was a good version out there that is better than the Region 1 Canadian and Korean versions. Is this still available, and does any one know where I can get it?

    Thanks

    I have not heard of a box set with both, but I've seen a few of the DVDs for Riget, and the Canadian R1 is probably the best I've seen. I don't think there is a Riget 2 Canadian, though.

    The Danish R2 PAL 4-disc release of both series is available in the U.S. from Xploited Cinema for $74.95. I have it, and it blows away all other releases.

    DJ Toell is right: I've bought the UK, the Canadian and the Danish versions, and the Danish release is by far the best. An good Danish e-tailer that ships internationally is DvdDoo:

    Other Danish Special Editions of Von Trier's movies are Breaking The Waves and Dogville.

    Damin & Mark,
    This must be the release I was thinking of! I like all of the extras too. I had done a few searches for it but never found a place that had it in stock. As soon as I have the cash I will have to buy this version. My friend is checking out the versions I currently have,and if I know his tastes in movies he will probably want to buy these from me. He doesn't have a multi regional player so he can't get the other version yet!

    Thanks guys

    Hi Christopher

    Since the dvdoo.com site is in danish only I thought you might like to know what the price for the Riget box comes to.

    The box costs 289 kroner. Delivery to the US is 149 base and 20 per item.

    That comes to a grand total of 458 kroner.
    With the current exchange rate that's about 70$.
