As far as I can tell, the US release is based on the same master licensed by Ripley's. Also, consider there is a German release with English audio.

Thanks.
I focus especially on little-known films, since many of them will never be released in US and UK. Also consider that most Italian labels don't subtitle their films because that is quite expensive, so I try to support the few who dare to think worldwide (RHV, Minerva, Cristaldi).
