Amazon Germany shows the cover art (with titles in Spanish) and has a price, for sale through a third party, not sure if it is available.

Is it out? Does it come with subtitles in English? Haven't seen it listed anywhere else.

This would have to be an import...

I am also curious about this - this movie is great.

Same goes for The Lives of Others - I wonder if it will be on HD DVD in Europe....

Is it called "The" Downfall? I thought it was just Downfall.

Blu-ray = 775

It's not actually bad. It's meant to look like this. The theatrical version and all DVD versions look like this.

The reason for the look is that the director wanted to use as much natural light sources as possible (no light towers etc.). So the scenes in the bunker look very badly lit and the film has a lot of grain.

Scenes in daylight look superb IMHO.

You're correct. The english title is "Downfall"!

I thought I saw this on HBO, Showtime or Cinemax (in SD) a couple of years ago with subtitles. I could be wrong.
