WILD EAST: The disc has been incorrectly encoded into anamorphic widescreen ~2.20:1, making the image squashed. OAR for the film is supposed to be about 1.75:1. With widescreen TVs you can use the zoom function to make the image show in the correct aspect ratio. With standard TVs setting the player to wide (16×9) should make it appear in the correct ratio (haven’t been able to verify this). http://www.sundances.net/spaghetti/screenshots from the disc are presented as they appear on the disc (in incorrect aspect ratio).
ZYX: The DVD is incorrectly encoded for 4/3 (1.33:1) and should be seen in 16/9 (1.78:1). http://www.sundances.net/spaghetti/screenshots are presented here in the correct aspect ratio. With widescreen TVs you can just stretch the image to fill the whole screen, users of normal TVs have to watch in 4:3 I guess. Thanks to Pieter Boven for the http://www.sundances.net/spaghetti/screenshots from the ZYX disc.
The opening titles seem to appear in completely different places. In WE disc the movie has progressed almost 5min, while the german disc is only 3min into the film… BUT yet the scene in which the german titles appear is seen much later in the WE disc.
