An enhanced trailer or mini movie about "KUNDUN"

There was an additional dvd with the PAL version of KUNDUN and it contained the trailers and a mini documentary of the filming of the movie KUNDUN, along with interviews with Martin Scorcese and the cast. There was footage from an all together differnet perspective - shot while the film was being shot - of the scenes being shot which offers a unique and enlightening perspective, especially for those interested in the craft of film making. But, the "A la Rechercher de KUNDUN avec Martin Scorcese" was more background into the making of the film. Subtitles on the disc are in Danish and French, so I'm not too sure. This DVD contains several features besides the ones mentioned here.
