More irritatingly, many production houses seem to regard Region 4 (where I live) as a sort of second rate area, with the subsequent result that DVDs are often released here in inferior presentations.
The local release of Mondovino contains just the movie, nothing else. I gather the region 1 version has a commentary by Nossiter, as well as some 50-odd minutes of additional footage. So, to those of who who've seen it, is it worthwhile? Is the commentary worth listening to, and the extra footage worth the bother? At some point in the future I'm going to have to upgrade our TV, and we'll be able to view NTSC-format discs. I may hold off sourcing a local Mondovino if the region 1 version is that much better. If not, I'll get get what's on offer, much as it pains me to - apparently - support inferior product.
