Waltz with Bashir has been released in Region 2 (France and United Kingdom). It will be released in Region 1 (USA) on the 23rd of June, 2009.

The Region 2 (France) release contains the following:

The Region 1 (USA) release will contain the following:

* Hebrew and English Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks

In my opinion, the best version available would be the Region 1 (USA) as that is the only release with a director's commentary.
