Title Best
Broken Hearts Club, The: A Romantic ComedyR4

     The Region 4 version of this disc misses out on;

  • Pan & Scan version

  • French Subtitles

  • Dolby Surround 2.0 Audio Track

  • French Dolby Surround 2.0 Audio Track

  • Trailers - All About My Mother, Groove and Go

     The Region 1 version of this disc misses out on;

  • German, Dutch, Polish, Turkish, Czech, Danish, Hungarian, Swedish, Icelandic, Finnish, Hindi, Greek, Hebrew, Norwegian, Bulgarian, and Arabic Subtitles

  • German Dubbing on Broken Hearts Club trailer

  • German Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Audio Track

  • Subtitles on both Broken Hearts Club and Futuresport trailers

     None of these differences in features warrant the recommendation of one version over the other. However, the small font used in the black and white inserts throughout the film really show up the differences in the quality of the transfers here. I can honestly say that the Region 4 transfer wins hands down. The two transfers differ so dramatically that I have a hard time believing it can only be due to the additional resolution of PAL. The NTSC transfer really drops the ball when it comes to quality.
