    Has anyone got The English Patient on dvd or have aspect ratio detail on.

    The IMDB has the aspect ratio as 1.85:1. http://us.imdb.com/Technical?0116209

    I'm sure this isn't right. I'm sure I've seen on tv on BBC2 a showing and the opening credits were certainly in more than 1.85:1 and more like 2.35:1.

    This link says 1.85:1 but the screen shots are definitely 2.35:1-2.4:1.

    I would be looking at region 2 but info on other regions would also be welcome.

    P.S. Which releases are anamorphic and good transfers?

    P.P.S This IMDB link now says the dvd version is Pan & Scan 16:9, hmm, the plot thickens!
