Packaging / Design

This was the first special dvd packaging done for this film in Sweden but it wasn't released until 2004 (an older single disc collectors edition was released back in 2001 but it was only released in a keepcase).

I stumbled upon this by accident and hadn't really noticed this digipack back when it came out (probably cause I wasn't such a packaging-nerd back in those days) - never the less I managed to find a mint condition copy to put on my shelf.

And the overall design is actually really nice and has it's own look in comparison to a lot of other regions. Some people might be disturbed by the main title being printed in swedish rather than english but for me this wasn't to much of a big deal (though I'd obviously prefer the original title had it been an option).


Disc contents / Extras

In comparison to the old collector's edition released back in 2001 this 2 disc set adds the now classic "Family Portrait" documentary to the extras (running a full 64 minutes).

These days there are obviously many other editions that adds a better image transfer as well as several new lengthy documentaries but for the time this was a pretty good lineup.


Sidenotes

The first disc is encoded R0 while the second one is actually just R2.
