For your information, Dances with wolves (french release) is region free!
It's the extented cut (3 h44)

There is an english version (5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio) and without french subtitles forced!

And a lot of bonus (more than 2 hours)


so you can get it....PQ is not top notch though...but it's decent!

Actually the PQ is not even OK IMO on the French disc. There is some weird shimmering going on in spots - check out the scene where Stands With A Fist is buy the lake with the sun shimmering - not good.

Also something is really up with the color timing. Compared to the US DVD of the Director's Cut, this one is WAY brighter and seems to have a golden hue on everything. Fine detail isn't too hot either.

I saw this in HD on HDnet at 1080i on cable and it looked much better than the French Blu-ray. The color timing of the HDnet showing seems to match the 2003 US DC DVD.

To add insult to injury, there appears to be some kind of pitch issue with the audio as well. It's not as severe as some of the Studio Canal HD DVD's, but it's there. The instant I heard Costner's narration I could tell something was up. It's maybe a 1/4 step higher in pitch and has kind of slight "honking" ringing to it like it's been processed weird.

I don't know if the German disc suffers from these issues, but this disc is really problematic IMO.

No, the German release is excellent, terrific PQ and outstanding DTS 7.1 Master Audio, both English & German with no forced subs on English. It is Region B locked.

I have been waiting for Dances with Wolves for a long time.
One of my favorite movies of all time.

I am in the US, if it out in Europe it is coming to the United States.

It's one of my favorites as well. MGM owns the rights in the US so it will be a Fox release, but there's been no word of an upcoming release on blu-ray in the US. I got tired of waiting, Region B locked titles are not a problem for me, and Fox will be hard pressed to top the Kinowelt release.
