    Not about to discuss the content of this film, but I notice that there is a new UK R2 release coming out next month.

    Anybody know how this compares with previous releases in relation to cuts, dubbing and subtitles?

    What is the definitive PAL release ?

    The film title, or the thread title?

    Dont know about a Pal version, but the R2 UK version is likely to suffer as many, if not more, cuts than the cinema version. I've got the R1 Canadian version and thats fine.

    Hi Zog,

    The UK video release has had a further 2 second cut in addition to the 10 seconds cut from the cinema release. The DVD should be available in widescreen and with sub-titles along with a 40 minute "making of" documentary.

    To my knowledge the french DVD would be the best to go for.
    They certainly won`t cut their film, then again if u need subs, that might not be the best version.

    Subs is an issue at the moment, as my French is poor, (but improving all the time!).

    Baise Moi was originally banned in France but the case ended up in court and the film was given an X.


    It's cut plenty for the UK DVD so I'd say get the Region 1 disc -it's not a great disc but it's uncut and no worse than any other release. It's also got English subs.

    If you want it just to see what all the fuss is about then get it from Denmark or Holland where it's very cheap.

    There's no doubt this is one helluva bad film.

    USA review. There's a Canadian disc kicking about too.

    Its poorly acted, poorly directed badly scripted and tries to be arty but is just plain old boring, if u want to see its main stars in action ud be better of buying a proper porno film which has more steamy sex and better direction

    I liked it. Well, perhaps 'like' is the wrong word, but I appreciated what they were attempting. It's not supposed to be about 'steamy sex'. If this is what you are after, you would, indeed, be better off with a porno.

    I agree with KRRK, I liked it. I have seen some of Karen Bach's "other films" and considering I think she did a good job.

    HI,

    As of yet, there appears to NOT be a definitive version of this film. It's either uncut, and subtitled, but 4:3 (Region 1 version), or cut, widescreen and subtitled (the UK release). The French release is good, but has no English subtitles.

    I'm sure someone will re-release the film, exactly as it was meant to be seen, complete and in widescreen, in a few months or a year perhaps and probably on a Dutch label, but until then, it doesn't look like we'll get to see the film properly.

    And KRRK is correct. This film is not a porn film! If that's what you are looking for, then forget it. However, if you are looking for a thought-provoking drama about the nature of violence, both involving women, and against women, then it will make you sit-up and think.

    Pooch

    me and the other half saw it UN-CUT (rare for the UK) at a special presentation in a local indy cinema.

    That much is thrown at you over the course of the film that we just wanted the chance to watch it again.

    This has got little do do with sex and is really more about violence.

    The conclusion seems to be that if we want it uncut, widescreen and with English subtitles, then at the moment we are stuck.

    Sorry to resurrect this thread after all this time but was wondering if the situation had changed.

    i.e. Is there yet available an un-cut, 16:9 release with english subtitles ?

    I thought it was ok, acting wasn't great I agree but certainly worth a watch.
