La Reine Margot Dutch DVD question...

I'm new at the DVDTalk forum, so please forgive me if this question has already been asked. I read recently at Dvdcompare.net that the Dutch DVD release of Patrice Chereau's La Reine Margot runs 159 minutes. I checked several DVD retailers from the Netherlands and many of them confirmed this running time. But, there were several that listed the running time as 142 minutes, 136 minutes, etc. I know that this film exists in various forms, but these different running times were listed for this specific DVD release. The DVD is also supposed to feature a 5.1 mix, which is fantastic considering all other releases include a 2.0 mix.

My question is, can anybody confirm the running time of this DVD before I order it from the Netherlands?

The DVD was released by A-Film Home Entertainment. Here is a link to the listing at Rodisc.nl

I can not offer any assistance with this specific release but will be highly surprised if this is yet another cut of the film released on dvd. I would assume that this is a port of the French disc with added Dutch subs (the Dutch have such a practice which is esp. well adopted by studios such as Boomerang Pictures).

It will be interesting to confirm however what exactly is the status of this release as there are already quite a few on the market -Aussie, French, Russian, UK, R1, etc.

If you receive a definitive answer please post your findings.
