1.0 out of 5 stars On the UK version: avoid this print of a great film, 12 Nov. 2003

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jesus Of Nazareth (Cinema Version) [DVD] (DVD)
This is a great film and deserves all the praise it gets here. But don't buy the Carlton version on sale from the UK website. The've stolen the colour from it! The film looks as if it's been left in a bucket of bleach for a day. If your DVD player supports Region 1 Encoding, try to get the US version from Artisan (Fox video). Running length is also an issue: Carlton's runs 270 minutes, Artisan's 382 minutes--nearly 2 hours less! This is such a wonderful film, it's worth the effort to get it from Amazon US. The Amazon.com is also cheaper, might help offset the extra shipping cost!

I have the Carlton version & the colour is absolutely fine!
However, there is now a "Special Edition" available in the UK which is longer & I understand contains all the original footage.
I've just ordered a copy.

Thanks for the heads up about the shortie version!

FYI: All reports on Amazon from people who have purchased the "Special Edition" indicate several scenes are cut, some of them crucial. Advice seems to be to look elsewhere for a definitive rendering on DVD.
