Personally I'd rather not look like the "bad guy" .
I don't mind being the bad guy, I'd just rather not look like one. :oops: :P :lol:

Hypocrite?
Me? :lol:

We will have to ask again the Spanish user to make us a digitized copy like the current one and problem solved. :wink:

You may be right.

I'm hoping Eldsjäl is able to come up with a legitimate source in Sweden.

We shall soon see I hope.

No replies yet from the Memphis (Memfis) addresses I gathered. I'm holding off for another week or so before trying again.
Whatever. We'll go there and burn the house down. Come on. Please...

If they take a long time it is because they are evaluating it and thinking a lot. I believe that we will achieve something because we are making them think.

Very good Eldsjäl!!! ^O^ _O_

Got a reply from Lars Jönsson himself, Fucking Åmål's main producer!

Lars Jönsson wrote:Tack för ditt mejl.

Det är för närvarande inte aktuellt med Blu-ray.

Däremot finns den digitalt restaurerade filmen nu på HBO Nordic.

Vänliga hälsningar
Lars

And now rubbishly translated to English by yours truly:

Thank you for your e-mail.

There are currently no plans for a Blu-ray.

However, the digitally remastered version is now availible on HBO Nordic.

Kind regards
Lars


Kind of a let down, but at least he was to the point and gave me a definitive answer. We can only hope for a physical release in the more distant future.

Wasn't aware of the fact that FÅ is on HBO Nordic. I knew that Lukas worked on a series a while back that were to be exclusive for the service. Will have to investigate some more on this.

On a side note, I'll be watching the digitally remastered version for the first time tomorrow! They'll be showing the film at a independent cinema in Växjö. :-)

On this website, it is also sold out with TrustNordisk:

The HBO Nordic service is accessible through a web browser at https://se.hbonordic.com/. But I'm more or less certain that you can't use this anywhere outside of the Nordic countries, so you'll have to use a proxy service or something like that I'm afraid. At least for right now.

So I've now watched the digitally remastered version! Overall I'm very pleased with the quality. It took me some time to adjust to how everything looked and sounded as I'm thoroughly used to watching the DVD versions, but oh how good it felt to see this on the big screen! :-)

Can't get access in Australia.
"Outside the region

Anyone else? Anywhere?

So damn stupid that they aren't doing a Blu ray. I just can't fathom the mentality. :T

I hear you Ian. I'm not a fan of these video on demand services and it always bothers me when people claim that it's the future. When I purchase a film I really like I want to be able to watch it years in the future as well. Regardless of my internet connection or if the company's servers are up and running. On top of that, they'll have to take FÅ down from there eventually as it's surely not licensed for all eternity. From a consumer's point of view physical media will always have great benefits (not just for us fans who also want something pretty on the shelves to look at), but beggars can't be choosers apparently.
