On the whole, it's a solid film transfer with some revisionism. Better than I was expecting, going off the screenshots.
Well at least they didn't Michael Mann it and put a teal wash over the entire movie.

Is this release region free? This website says region free but Amazon has it listed as Region B/2.

Amazon is known not to be reliable. I have the disc and it's region free.

Can it be confirmed that there are no FORCED german subs....? Since it was confirmed region-free above by a member, I will surely buy this if confirmed to not have forced subs...

Nearly 500 blu-rays in and this is my FIRST foray into buying a foreign release of something just not available here in the States.

Really happy that it plays the region and that there are no subtitles when you switch over to english.

I don't remember the movie being so grainy, but then again when it came out, I wasn't watching it on the sort of TV I have today. Same with the DVD actually, though I feel like I want to put it into the blu player just to see what it looks like for a quick comparison.

So it would seem that I'm likely to keep picking up foreign releases for other flicks I love and for one reason or another, haven't been released on blu in the USA market. Things like The Lover, or even Brotherhood of the Wolf, among others.

While I'm not complaining, I just hope they look more like what I'm used to in terms of visual quality than Lolita's release. For this one it works with the sensual, dreamy quality of the film...but I like my SUHD.

No, except for the placebo experience.

While the choice is odd to carry the commentary and dubbing losslessly, no one would stand a blind test anyway assuming a proper encoding of the PCM master at those bitrates.

Hence the different color timing between the DVD and BD release would leave way more room for discussions.
