Jesus of Nazareth — a tale of two regions

Jesus of Nazareth — a tale of two regions October 17, 2006

My friend Matt Page has just posted some information on Jesus of Nazareth (1977) and its DVD release in Europe, over at his Bible Films Blog — and along the way, he posts two screen captures, so that North American obsessives like me can compare the Region 2 release to the Region 1 release that is sitting on our shelves.

So, I have tracked down the equivalent screen captures on my own DVD, which was released by Artisan Entertainment six years ago, and here they are — with Matt’s Region 2 version on the left and my Region 1 version on the right. As ever, click on the pictures themselves to see bigger versions of them.

Stronger colours, less cropping (curiously, these images are the same width but not the same height) — I like Region 2 better.
