Dancer in the Dark question

I picked up the UK R2 boxset of this, and while watching it found something I was wondering about. Just after the start of chapter 9 (when Jean-Marc Barr says something like "what's this guy's name?") there's a shot of Catherine Deneuve. This shot looks very strange, almost like it shakes/jumps a couple of times. I know Von Trier is fond of the hand-held camera and much of the film features such work, but this shot looked especially strange (even for Von Trier) on my TV. Just wondering if it is a disc flaw or not? Does it do the same in other regions/versions? Any help appreciated...

Bump...

Anyone here got this movie in any region? If you can let me know about the above, that'd be great

I'm not sure what line yo're talking about. It's been a while since I've seen the movie.

Just give me a time stamp, and I'll check it for you (I also have a PAL copy - R2/NL - so don't worry about the speed-up).......

Mark:

It's just after 25:30. If you can check it, that would be great. Thanks.

That bit looked perfectly fine on my DVD/setup (chapter 6 on the Dutch version BTW).

Just as shaky as the other scenes in the movie, and it certainly didn't jump....
