You made me work.

So, I sent an email to EuroVision asking if it's Region A / North American compatible.

In the meantime, there's this recent discussion thread about the release on a German movie forum:

http://forum.cinefacts.de/214420-das-boot-28.html

I'm not a native speaker so it wasn't fun reading through the built-in Chrome translator, but it was as expected. About half the geeks there said it was good or acceptable (better than the DVD version) and the other half hated and nitpicked it to death.

So it's just like every other forum then?

Even if this is region free, I imagine most US players would have an issue with the 25 fps.

Oppos can handle 25 fps.

My copy is at work so can't confirm until Monday. Worth asking the region coding question in the thread on the German sub forum here as may get a quicker answer.

Oh, I didn't catch that it's 1080i50. I take it that it's been sped up then?

It would seem so.

They also smothered everything with excessive DNR. There's little grain to be seen, and the details are smoothed over.

I wonder how "EuroVideo Medien GmbH" managed to pick this up? Just curious if they are renowned for good picture quality?

My copy just shipped from DE. I've never seen this version before, so I thought I'd take a chance at just under 15 Euros. I'm hoping it's not too bad.

No region A BDs of the 293 minute cut? The DVD looks pretty bad.

Not as of today and the Region B DE release looks poor as well.

Quote:
This Blu-ray release of Das Boot contains two cuts of the film, a 208-minute Director's Cut as well as the original 149-minute theatrical version. A director's commentary is the only extra to be found alongside the 208-minute cut; all other extras are housed on the disc containing the shorter, less gigabyte-hungry version.
Be brave.
