Review of LISBON STORY, out on Lionsgate on Nov.20 2007    -   click here

A special edition, 10 disc box-set of Wim Wenders films released by Anchor Bay in the UK. With the exception of three of the titles, Wings Of Desire, Paris, Texas and The American Friend, none of the titles have ever been released on DVD in the UK before. The 10 films are accompanied by a specially produced booklet. click here

ARTHAUS has published a comprehensive collection of Wim Wenders DVD's in Germany. More info here

Comments by Stefano, who informed me about the Italian DVD's:
You''l notice that they say "until the end of the world" comes in 3 dvd, instead there's a fourth extras dvd. "Buena Vista" is now edited by Cecchi Gori Home video, but it was previously released by Elleu. The other are rather similar to the french/american editions (the same special contents, commentary by WW etc.) except "Scarlet Letter" with "Die Insel" as bonus. Ripley Home Video (Rome) is doing the best work on these movies!

The Directors Cut of Until the End of the World is available in Italy.

I also received this from R.Bell in the UK, who has a multi-regional DVD player:
"Hi, Although I'm from the UK & speak no Italian, I've managed to get the 3 disc DVD of UTEOTW on the web via www.dvd.it and it's totally, incredibly brilliant. I loved the film, but this is sheer perfection!....."
Rosamunde Bell

Regional Codes

Also referred to as Country Codes, or Zone Locks, these are optional codes that the movie industry imposed on DVD-Video specifications. Players will be coded by region, and these players will not play DVDs coded for a different region. It is expected that only first release DVD-Video titles will have those codes. DVDs with no regional codes will be played by any DVD player.

The six regional codes are:
1: North America
2: Japan, Europe, Middle East, South Africa
3: Southeast Asia (plus Hong Kong)
4: Australia, New Zealand, Central & South America
5: Northwest Asia, North Africa
6: China
