These are fantastic films but the person (Dave-deeeee) selling them is claiming that they are ALL PAL/Region 2 which is not the case. At least two of the films are REGION 4 and another marked region 4 which can be played universally. The seller claims that he has been told that even though they are marked region 4 they will play in any machine. They don't.

The collection itself is brilliantly put together and looks amazing but I am a little miffed that I shall have to buy seperately to complete the collection.

Will need a region free player to view most of these movies... 16 Jun. 2012
By G. Edmonson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a fine sampler set of Peter Greenaway movies. The quality is very good, but make sure one has a region free player. I have tried all of the films on a number of machines and only "8 1/2 Women", which is listed as ALL region, plays on my North American players. There are three other movies (The Baby of Macon,The Pillow Book, and Prospero's Books) that are listed as ALL region on the back cover, but none of these played on any of my machines except for my region free player. The "Peter Greenaway" documentary also only played on the region free player even though the back cover lists it as ALL region. "Drowning By Numbers", "A Zed and Two Noughts", and "The Draughtsman's Contract" are all region 4 and so definitely won't play on North American DVD players. All of these movies played on my computer, though I had to change the region of my computer for the three Region 4 discs before they would play.

All of the films are widescreen except for "The Pillow Book" which is full screen (1.33:1)

The running times for the films are:
"The Baby of Macon" 117minutes.
"The Pillow Book" 121 minutes.
"A Zed and Two Noughts" 112 minutes.
"Prospero's Books" 121 minutes.
"8 1/2 Women" 121 minutes.
"Drowning by Numbers" 119 minutes.
"The Draughtsman's Contract" 104 minutes.

Special features are only found on the "Draughtsman's Contract" and "Zed and Two Noughts"

At last... 2 Nov. 2010
By Timothy Reilly - Published on Amazon.com
Just received it in the mail today, and can confirm that *at last* Prospero's Books has been put on a proper DVD! It was beautiful! Funny CTWL not there, but nice to have the Baby of Macon on DVD now too. And the Pillow Book.

View on Your Computer in US and Canada - Best Current Release of Prospero's Books 14 Dec. 2013
By Douglas Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
An excellent collection of Greenaway's films and the only quality DVD available of "Prospero's Books." (The US DVD is a poor transfer from a VHS tape.)

The DVD is region 0, so even though it is in PAL format and will not play on TV from a DVD player (unless it is a multi-format player), it should play just fine from your computer and you can rip the DVD with HandBrake to play on your TV through an Apple TV (or similar device).

This entire collection deserves to be brought out on Blu-Ray in the US and Canada.

Greenaway Rocks 23 Jan. 2014
By A book worm - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This boxset is pretty rad. Although I think The cook the Thief his Wife and her Lover should have been included over Prospero's Books. Anyway these movie are gems and I am very happy to finally have them. One thing I really wish is that these had subtitles for the hard of hearing in english. I am partially deaf and always enjoy subtitles, but you can't have everything. Wonderful movies. Quirky documentary.

a bargain 11 Jan. 2011
By Inigo Montoya - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I deducted one star for the lack of menus and extras. Some of these are unavailable at any price, and actually are of good video and audio quality. I would love to have Prospero's Books remastered and released on Blu-ray, but what are the odds?
