To my eyes, the UK edition's picture seems to be a tad less sharp, and the colours oversaturated (orangey skin tones being but one manifestation), but that might be down to the screenshooting technique DVD Reviewer uses, because I noticed the same when comparing "El Chucho, quien sabe?" by KOCH Media (Germany) against their screencaps...

RE the framing; it's virtually identical most of the time but near the end of the film, where the Japanese disc's picture has been severely zoomed-in!

*difference between channels is -40.86 dB (0.90 %)
**the subtitle stream's got just one entry:
