Enemy at the Gate [R2 France] Extras???

Are the extras on the R2 France version of Enemy at the Gate (Stalingrad) the same as those in the R1 US version, and do they and the director's commentary track have English subtitles?

Thanks.

...ahh... well... dunnofershure... but... since the director is French, I imagine that his commentary on the French two-disc release will be French, too, definitely without (English) subtitles...

(see: not just one, but two dts soundtracks!)

...here's a detailed review of the US DVD release:

(see: no dts soundtrack! ... ahh... decisions... decisions...)

Just found out that there is a R2 UK version with director's commentary and English DTS soundtracks: http://www.dvdstreet.infront.co.uk/S...od_id=16080382, and there will be a R4 version with DTS soundtrack (but no director's commentary???): http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/219677

Just found a comparison of R1/R4/R2UK editions:

http://www.michaeldvd.com.au/Reviews...p?ReviewID=843

In the reviewer's notes there is mention of the R2UK edition's censorship status:

"... the UK R2 version of this disc features a commentary track by director Jean-Jacques Annaud. While I have yet to hear any specific news about the censorship status of this title, it appears that this may well be the best version of Enemy At The Gates at this time ..."

What is the implication of a film's "censorship status" in the UK: cut scenes or just a more restrictive rating?

thanks! codefree

I have been told the R4 version doesn't have the full-rate dts soundtrack. and the Franch 2-DISC version looks attractive.

tough decision.....

...of course, the French set does not (in fact, can not!) have full bit-rate dts soundtracks (since it features not one, but two of them,
as I clearly - I thought - stated in my post above!) ... not to mention that there are also two DD 5.1 soundtracks, plus the Director's commentary track - all on that one DVD-9!...

...sigh...

(...I believe I'm not straying too far from the truth by saying that, generally,
"full-bit" dts soundtracks are almost as rare these days as hens' teeth, certainly in the case of movies with 120-minutes or longer running times...)

Most Japanese dts DVDs of U.S. movies are full bitrate.

...and how many "Japanese dts DVDs of U.S. movies" are there ? ... dozens? ... hundreds?...

NOTE: since the introduction of DVDs 5 years ago, some 20'000 (TWENTY THOUSAND)!!! titles have been released in Region 1 ... how many of those feature DTS soundtracks ?... and how many among those are full bit-rate ?...

...I rest my case...

No need to get snippy. I was simply stating that of the dts tracks on American movie DVDs that are available in Japan, most are full bitrate. I realize that as a whole, in the entire world, there aren't a lot of full bitrate dts releases. God only knows why you overreact to so many posts.

...it's called 'exasperation'...

...and, btw, I don't 'overreact to so many posts' (name three - if you dare!) ... in fact, and in all modesty, I think most of my post are rather 'helpful' (for those who care to actually read them, not just skim over them)...

...as ever: just MNSHO, of course!...

"name three - if you dare!" - well there's yet another example

You are a very helpful member most of the time. You've answered a lot of questions I've asked in the past and I appreciate it.

Actually the reviewer I quoted above only said he's "yet to hear any specific news about the censorship status of this title". So, it's still not clear if the R2 UK version is censored.

My bad. I guess I'm guilty of doing what Hendrik hates and not reading the post but rather skimming it.

The R2 French edition is very impressive. The English DTS soundtrack is really powerful, and the subtitles are removable. Besides, you can access deleted scenes clicking on an icon la Follow the White Rabbit.

According to the BBFC site, no cuts were made on the British edition.
