Yet another version of "The Double Life of Veronique" Region 3!

While browsing on the DvdfromKorea.com site I came across yet another version of Kieslowski's notable film, THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE. What makes this one enticing is that it includes an OST of the score from the film.
(Both the new Criterion and Artificial Eye don't have that inclusion). Talk about triple dipping for those who already own the other fine versions released last year! Link: http://www.dvdfromkorea.com/shop/p_detail.asp?idx=5097 Not familiar with the company releasing this, I'll assume its Korean?

I'd buy the Criterion and pick up the soundtrack, which is still in production:

The booklet will likely be in Korean, but they are usually very handsomely designed with lots of pictures

I too thought about ordering this. The production company is listed as Alto on DVDfromKorea. I have at least 2 of their discs and they are quite good. I have their discs for ...And God Created Woman and Cleo from 5 to 7. Their artwork look very similar to the Criterion discs and for all I know could be sourced from the same material. I know the God Created Woman transfer is very comparable to the Criterion transfer and the disc has a documentary about Bardot not available on the Criterion but it's in French with Korean subs only. I have no way of knowing if they are fully licensed DVD's but they do not look like bootlegs to me as the artwork is quite good with amaray case in cardboard slipcases. They also have little holographic labels you tend to see on foreign releases with the company name on them. The website does not look very well updated but I can't read it anyway. This Veronique package looks to have similar extras to the Criterion and I suspect it a pretty handsome package. I just would not have high expectations about all the bonus material being English friendly.

Edit: Be aware that on DVDHeaven the publisher is listed as Taewon ent so I don't know if this is really an Alto disc or if they changed names or what. YesAia also lists Alto Media as publisher though. Still looks like a nice package anyway. I also wouldn't expect the booklet or insert to be English either.
