This is a great documentary, however I note that the running time on Amazon is 134 minutes. IMDB stated 148 minutes, even taking into PAL speed up I hope we are getting the full version.

As it is over 10 years since I first saw the film I cannot remember how long the version I saw was.

Either way I'll be buying this. Never dreamed that it would be released on DVD.

I can assure it is the full-length version.
Anand did prepare a shorter 93 minute version for TV, but the 134 minute version is the complete version.
(The DVD will also have some 9 minutes of 'additional scenes' as part of the Special features).

Well, that's great to hear. IMDB does have some inaccurate information, which for a database that size is to be expected.

I can't wait for this to be released and strongly recommend it.

"War and Peace is an essential documentary work from a richly talented and politically committed filmmaker, and deserves to be as widely seen as possible. It's well served by Second Run's solidly featured DVD and comes highly recommended."
An epic, heartfelt appreciation of Anand Patwardhan's deeply moving, politically astute WAR AND PEACE by Jerry Whyte at Cine Outsider

I can only re-iterate what has been already said about this documentary. It is an absolutely stunning achievement. It weaves an intricate tapestry of multiple subjects, but the dominant theme is the race for nuclear weapons. It is futile to try to summarize here its conclusions. It is the visceral impact of how it shows machinations of politics and humanity of ordinary people that makes it an unforgettable experience. Highly recommended.

Thanks, kekid, for posting your thoughts on this very important film. I wish we could somehow make it into an essential watch and for young people especially.

I found Part One very interesting. It's revealing how strident the politicians and party faithful tend to be, while almost all of the regular folks in both India and Pakistan are much more thoughtful and peaceful. Part Two had more about the US and Japan -- mostly related to Hiroshima/Nagasaki and present-day ripples from that, and therefore was more familiar and less immediate than the India/Pakistan nuclear standoff. Unfortunately, the film was completed prior to it being revealed how the father of the Pakistan nuke program, A.Q. Khan, was a willing broker, dispersing nuclear technology to North Korea, Libya, Iran, etc. A chapter on that proliferation would have fit right in and highlighted the dangers of creaky unstable Pakistan being in the nuclear club.
