I checked it out, and I also received a confirmation by Amazon that we are talking about the 226 minutes version.

This time, it's the right one!!!

This is just wonderful news.

The name Amazon has is:
Once Upon a Time in America - S.E.

What does S.E. stand for?

At 226 minutes, does this correspond to the normal full length version?

S.E. stands for Special Edition, I believe. The running time shows it's a complete version.

You have to be very careful with this.

Fnac.fr annouces a 220 minute version, but amazon.fr, who works with fnac, has the 116 minute version.

Before buying the DVD from Fnac, I personnaly would check it in Fnac Les Halles if it is the 220/226 minute version.

I'm maybe wrong, but I would tell you to buy the DVD from Amazon.com (USA) if you can read the zone 1 dvds.

just looked on www.play.com.They have details of the Region 1[but not the Region 2,I assume it will be the same]release of OUATIA.They are

Original Director's Cut

Audio Commentary with film critic Richard Schickel

Revealing 'Once Upon A Time' Sergio Leone doc.[sounds like the same one that Film Four used to show in the Uk but I could be wrong]

Photo Gallrey

Trailer


Sounds OK.the commentary should be interesting but there's no mention of deleted scenes.

Great....... Undecided

Now the guys at Warner have finally decided they are going to release a full DVD version of OUATIA with the oh-so-unimportant exception of the director's country of origin.
Too absurd to be true, isn't it?

Does any of you guys know something about an Italian release?
Does either the English or the French 226' release have an Italian-spoken version? I would content with that...

Looking forward to your feedback...

The Amazon.com DVD release is annouced in English and French, no other language.

Amazon.fr has an italian version in language and in subtitle, but don't forget that it's the 116 minutes version.

Shorty,
since both the American and the English releases are 220 or 226' long, why should Warner decide to release in France the butchered 116' version?

If you consider that all of them are announced as 2-DVD special editions maybe for once Fnac is right while Amazon.fr is not....... at least this is what I hope Wink

And now I've found this:
http://www.cinestore.com/html/fiche_produits.php?groupe=1&page=1&id=18121&code_origine=1063AE, one more website where they say that the French release will be 220' long and will have Italian language and subtitles.

I really don't know what to say. The editor in France is Warner Home Video too but the DVD itself is made in France.

Now, if you compare the information on Amazon.com and Amazon.fr, Amazon.com is explicit: "Newly Remastered Director's Cut Print". Amazon.fr doesn't say anything about this.

Anyway, Allocine.fr says that it is the 220' version too.

From my own part, I've already buy the DVD from Amazon.com (USA). If I was you, I'll wait until the physical release of the DVD in Fnac, and check personally if it is the 220'/226' version.

I don't want to purchase the DVD from Amazon.fr or Fnac.fr and find the surprise that it's the 116' version!

I agree with you.
After all we've been waiting for years, so we may as well wait for another couple of months... and see which version will actually be released

Right, Amazon says 226 minutes. But several other web sites, in reporting the new release, describe it as "the 229-minute international release". Most of these web sites use the same wording for the entire new item, which may indicate they are copying it directly from some official press release. I never heard of a 229-min version before: I thought the "full" version was 226, with a slightly shorter 224-min version for the US (so that it could get an R rating, instead of X or whatever, 2 minutes where cut from the rape scene). I guess we'll just have to wait and see -- currently, the Warner Home Video site has no info on this DVD at all. In any event, I can't wait to finally get it!
FYI, several people asked about an existing DVD (with yet another different run time, at 227), which is "region free" and apparently comes with English, Portugese and Spanish soundtracks. I believe this was a Brazilian release, though whether it was official or not, I don't know. It has been available in the US through several import dealers for some time. But I never bought it, after finding out that it is a full-screen version. I can't imagine why anyone would want to watch Leone's direction mangled like that!

220' 226' 227' 229'
are all these versions actually different or are they all the same, the discrepancy on running times might be due to different methods in film and standards transfer.
