I'm trying to locate these two movies on DVD:

* Der Krieger und die Kaiserin (aka The Princess And The Warrior)
* Schlaraffenland

Both movies star Franke Potente. Any suggestions on where I might be able to buy these will be appreciated. And if the etailer's site is in English it'll be a lot easier.

Thanks!

Are most German DVDs non-anamorphic? I ask because 3 of the 5 you had linked are not 16:9 enhanced, the other two are but I already own the R1 versions. Also is there a site which lists if their DVDs have an English dub or at least English subtitles?

Thanks again.

...well, some are, some aren't... anamorphic, I mean...
(NOTE: the French are much better, in that respect: most of their DVDs of films having AR 1.66:1 or wider feature anamorphic transfers)

...as for German movies with English dubs/subs - here's a (wildly successful, apparently) horror movie that features both - and it's anamorphic, too!

Thanks for the info on the 16:9 issue. As for Anatomie, I've already got the R1 version. Excellent film BTW.

"princess and warrior" is getting a theatrical release in US, meaning it will likely get a future dvd release...not to stop you from ordering, but there are some films you can wait for, some you can't...

That's great news! Do you happen to know what US studio is releasing it?

According to today's update at www.dvdinside.de The Princess & The Warrior is getting a German release this fall as a 2-disc Special Edition with German DTS. Unfortunately it appears there will be no English subtitles.
