Delayed until 27 November. Sad as I really wanted to dig into it this month but hopefully that means the final extras will be announced in a few weeks.

All these delays remind me of the situation on the UK indie market a few years ago, when pretty much every release was delayed at least by a few weeks.

Good, because I couldn’t really afford it. I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait.

My set just arrived , ordered from Arrow . There seems a good crop of extras to justify buying the films again .

FWIW, the set's Region B locked (the first packaging photos featured the ABC demarcation, so it seemed up in the air)

Anyone happy or unhappy with the presentations of the films?

Are these films recommended for admirers of, say, the domestic dramas of Kiyoshi Kurosawa, namely Tokyo Sonata?

I've only seen Like Father... out of these but it's a wonderful film, with Koreeda's direction and the cast (including the children) making the entire dilemma touching and poignant. Haven't seen any Kyoshi but everything I've seen from Koreeda has been great (track down his brilliant After Life)

Kurosawa's (atypical but wonderful) Journey to the Sea is probably the closest match to the work of Kore'eda.

For those like me who skipped the set because they already owned the earlier Arrow standalones of I Wish and Like Father, Like Son, now is your chance. The current price on Amazon UK is £19.75, which comes out to a total of ~$26 after VAT removal and shipping to the US. For the supplemental features, booklet, and removable subtitles, I couldn’t pass it up.

Ooh thanks for the tip, it's been in my wish list for a while. Never seen anything Kore-eda before but the Palme win obviously has me interested, and the set seems pretty comprehensive.

Anyone know where I could POSSIBLY still find this? It’s frustrating because I just went region-free and this was one of the sets I wanted to get right away but now it’s like impossible to find.

My local store says they still have this in stock, but their website isn't always updated immediately so that's no guarantee that they actually have it. I'm also not sure whether the online store will let you select shipping outside Finland, but I know from speaking with the guys there that they have shipped items abroad in the past. Perhaps send them an email and ask.

I just tried purchasing it and it wouldn’t let me ship outside of Europe :( but I sent them an email so we’ll see.
