    I've lost my copy of this film so was going to buy another one.

    Does anyone know which is the best from these (CD WOW):

    Region 1 - Seems longer than region 2 (202 mins vs 195 mins)
    Region 2 - Standard UK version
    Region 2 Svensk Version - Wider aspect ratio (2.20 vs 1.85)

    Many thanks.

    R2 PAL movies run at 25 frames per second
    R1 NTSC movies run at 24 frames per second

    so the PAL version will be 1/25 shorter than the NTSC version, this is known as PAL speedup to some, and means your 100 min NTSC movie will only be a 96 min PAL movie.
    So it looks like the R1 and R2 versions of this movie are the same length.

    BUT the French and Polish releases are 2 disk versions and have many extras.

    I never knew that!

    Sounds like it'd be better to get the film over and done with in 195 mins if there's no extra content.
