FSK (Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle der Filmwirtschaft = Voluntary Self Regulation of the Movie Industry), a German motion picture rating system organization run by the SPIO (Head Organisation of the Movie Industry) has published the release certificate of Roxette’s new DVD. It’s been approved to be released without age restriction.

According to the certificate, the title of the DVD is ”It All Begins Where It Ends – The Incredible Story Of Roxette”. Running time is 206 min 23 sec.

*Micke N-S’s name is misspelled (Mikael Niguera) in the certificate, so no clue if the titles above are the final ones or just referring to the content of the different parts of the DVD.


Favela is the production company responsible for the documentary and the live part. You might remember our interview with them.

The documentary we saw on SVT last December was appr. 58 min long, so ”It All Begins Where It Ends” part might not be the very same as the TV version. However, this 3-4 min difference doesn’t necessarily mean it’s really different.

Concert 1-2: The live TV cut we saw on SVT in January was also appr. 58 min long and got a mixed critique even from fans. The constant cuts coming too fast after one another thus breaking the flow of the songs and mixing up places and crowd scenes were our main ”problems”. Now the live show is divided into 2 parts, 95 min 10 sec altogether. This means the concert film has been changed in a way and if we take out the talks on stage and the shoutings and clappings in the beginning and at the end of each concert, it really might be a complete show like Per wrote it in April. However, we are still wondering whether the cuts and mixing-ups have also been changed or just the length. Either way, we really hope for a full concert. C’mon, it was once (and still might be) the most important discussion on Earth! 😉

Micke N-S’s part might be a short interview or a backstage video with him or how he is handling Per’s gear and related. Or all these in 5 minutes.

3 minutes of ”So, Christoffer”. Hm. I’m wondering if it will be a megamix of ”So, Christoffer!”-s from different places. 🙂

Studio and Travelling can be a mix of Per’s iPhone videos and Favela’s shootings. We’ll see, but 40 minutes of these parts sounds promising.


Per informed all of us yesterday about the release date, which is 6th December – hopefully this year. 😉 We couldn’t bear any further delay. Now we also know that a live CD with 16 tracks is also included in the pack (not available separately) and 2 extra tracks we get on iTunes, Spotify, etc.



I hope your heart is in perfect condition, Jose. 😉


Update 1 by Per on 24th October:

Looks like the real deal to me. Except that loads and loads of “GessleCam”-goodies are also included on the BluRay-version! No space left on the DVD… /P.


Update 2 by Per on 24th October:

DVD/BluRay UPDATE: Just realised that the info from RoxBlog is not entirely correct. First of all, “So, Christoffer” is about 30 mins long (not 3 mins). The “Extras” that is “GessleCam, part 1-2-3” (So, Christoffer + Studio Work + Travelling) + MNS – The secret life of a guitar tech will only be available on the BluRay. Not on the DVD due to space limitations. /P.
