last night i watched the dvd of lars von trier‘s europa that i picked up in seoul. the box said it was full frame and that the film was in english with korean subtitles. well, the film wasn’t full frame – it was letterboxed, which was a pleasant surprise. unfortunately the film is not purely in english. large sections are in german which of course had no english subtitles. luckily, i’ve seen the film quite a few times before so i could half-remember what was being said in those scenes. despite the german segments lacking subtitles, i was still glad to see it again. it’s just as gorgeous to look at as i remembered it being.
