No distributor on the package or the disc anywhere? Seems a bit sketchy...

I agree. The EAN "8436558195066" gives several hits. Amazon ASIN: B01M09H3DG.

US Amazon states "Llamentol" as distributor.

I see Llamentol, Resen in different places and they are known for bootlegs. Having nothing on the disc or cover - seems like a bootleg to me, unless someone can argue against it.

Bootleg. The AV's crap because it came out a whole year before the Warner Archive BD, so couldn't rip it off. My money's on the source being a pirate download.

Markus, "bona fide from Amazon.es" is a virtual oxymoron, as it would be for Amazon.it. Have you read this?

OK. Best not to add this.

I did like the movie and will get the US disc.

Wise move, though on a personal note I abhor the WA BD's tealed, grain-smoothed and over-darkened transfer. More of a sidegrade than an upgrade. The DVD's far from perfect, but I still prefer it overall.
