Murnau's Sunrise: R2 France

Hi there!
it seems that Murnau's Sunrise is coming to R2 France within a month and it looks like it is the same edition available in R1, but this time you have not to buy three other films to get it.
My only doubt is: what about the german edition who originally was 10 minutes longer? since the current edition has been restored, do we have to think this is the correct runtime?

1.2:1 is correct for this film, not sure why they're calling it "Academy Ratio" though. Maybe they're using "Academy Ratio" interchangably with "nonanamorphic" but I would hope Eureka of all people wouldn't make that mistake.
