    From DVDFile.com

    "Just in from MGM Home Entertainment are the full specs for their early 2004 catalog and TV on DVD releases. MGM will debut special editions of five Ingmar Bergman classics on February 10th: Persona, Shame, The Passion of Anna, Hour of the Wolf and The Serpent's Egg.

    Each includes a new audio commentary by Bergman biographer Marc Gervais, a still gallery and trailers, and in respective order, one featurette per release: "A Poem in Images, "The Search for Humanity," "Disintegration of Passion," "The Search for Sanity" and "Away from Home." The Serpent's Egg also includes an additional featurette, "German Expressionism."

    Retail is $24.95 each, and MGM will also release The Ingmar Bergman Collection box set, which includes all five films plus a bonus sixth disc with additional extras: the "Sven Nykvist: With One Eye He Cries" and "Faro Island Mystique" featurettes, the "intermezzo 2002" Swedish TV special, a 1970 interview with Bergman, the "Film-Making in Sweden" article gallery, a still gallery including never-before-seen, intimate photos from Bergman's personal archives, and a poster montage. Retail for the box set is $112.95."

    Are these titles full screen or 16X9 widescreen?

    This looks like a sweet set.

    A must-purchase for me.

    2004 will be off to a bang with these, the re-release of the Criterion Tati's and Blowup from Warner.

    Additional info from DVDAngle:




    I hope the lack of a commentary on Persona is just a typo.

    Ummm... I'm getting nervous...

    Between the DVDFile and DVDAuthority info, I don't see the word anamorphic anywhere.

    Are foreign film fans going to get screwed over again here?

    Doesn't look to be anamorphic.

    I'll wait for reviews.
