    Which one do you mean? There's a UK, French, Italian, and German R2 releases.

    I looked in DVD Profiler, and the back cover of the UK DVD shows "16x9 Widescreen" on the back cover. However, it is in the database as just "letterbox" so it's back cover could possibly be incorrect.

    The French DVD only shows "16x9 comp 4/3" and it's in the database as just letterbox too, but that could also be incorrect.

    The Italian DVD's back cover shows "16/9"

    The German DVD doesn't even have a back cover in the database currently, so I have no clue about that one.

    According to ofdb.de it is 16x9 1.78:1 Widescreen with excellent quality. However, the German DVD is missing two minutes of censored footage.

    UK DVD (it's 16x9, but not listing the ratio): http://www.ofdb.de/view.php?page=fassung&fid=4264&vid=238450

    I have the french one, it isn't anamorphic.

    I checked by playing both on my dvd player with an hdmi cable
