The DVD is region 0, which means it plays everywhere. A truly gem.

A double disc package of Salomé, Oscar Wilde’s most controversial work, banned in London in the late 19th Century. This scintillating tale of lust, greed and revenge follows the legend of King Herod and his lust for his young stepdaughter, Salomé, and her sexual baiting of John the Baptist. Wilde’s adaptation has spawned multiple stage productions including an opera by Richard Strauss, and influenced work by musicians including Nick Cave and U2. Starring Pacino as King Herod and Jessica Chastain as Salomé in her first on screen role. Wilde Salomé follows Pacino’s journey to Europe to understand more about Oscar Wilde.. It is a profound vision that explores religion, literature, politics, violence and sexuality from one of the world’s greatest actors.
