We watch this movie every year in December at the U film society (mnfilmarts.org) It's got English subtitles too. I just can't figure out where they got it. I only see a reference to an apparently non-existent US distributor called 1900 distributing. I just bought a DVD of it from a UK web site. Swedish language only. My wife understands Swedish, my son and I will have to learn ;). After an exhaustive online search, I found it available in all the Scandanavian languages on DVD and German on VHS. Sigh. Bloody thing is ONLY in region 2 and pal format too of course... Double sigh... Still, HIGHLY recommended. I suppose someday we'll see the film version with subtitles released on DVD.
