Stendhal Syndrome new UK release from Arrow

came out on Monday I believe - could anyone who's bought it confirm the disc content and if it's uncut and a decent anamorphic ws transfer - looking to replace my Troma US release which has some good extras but very poor image quality

Just so you know, the Italian release is a 2-disc set with anamorphic picture and the original Italian dialogue. It's a really good quality pic too.

Couple of points:

1. The Italian dialogue is not the "original". Since it was shot in English but largely post-dubbed, the English audio track syncs up better with the actors' lip movements. However, the vocal performances in the Italian track are decidedly superior.

2. The best thing about the Italian set is that it includes both the English and Italian cuts. The Italian cut is slightly under two minutes longer, including a couple of extra scenes not present in other releases, one of which is quite pivotal.

Oh, and Nick over at Dark Dreams has a review copy. He confirms that it is uncut (unlike the previous UK release), and uses the same transfer as the English version in the Italian set. No extras though.

thanks all, I'll probably go for the Arrow release if it's definitely uncut, as I would imagine getting hold of the Italian release will be much more expensive

Depends on your definition of "uncut", though, I guess. The Italian set, which includes the full-length version as well as the shorter UK version, is well worth the money.
