Fantastic film but cannot say the same about this UK disc

Excerpt: This is a horrific subject and if it is anywhere near how society works in Denmark I am very glad I do not live there. The subtitles to the Danish audio are very good but most stupidly there are no subtitles to the few words that are spoken in English! Why English is used at all is not clear as it offers nothing to the story and the un-subtitled audio in "Danskish" are important and it is just irritating to have to back-track and lift the volume to hear what was said.
Summary: I saw this in a preview some months ago, and was so struck by its theme, as
well as the wonderful acting from all the cast = especially Mads and the child
who started all the trouble for the man she loved.
It makes one cautious of one's own attitudes to events published, but not
proved. The ending is profoundly interesting, but not really happy.
