    On DVD Pacific, I noticed the same thing, there was one movie there unrated, the other one was rated - both were the same price. I looked down further and saw that the unrated one had alot more extra features on top of everything the rated one had so went for that one.

    I always took 'Unrated' to mean 'Uncertified', therefore uncensored, so I tend to go for those given the choice. You tend to find that films likely to be cut due to sex scenes are the ones which sometimes have 'Unrated' versions. I suppose it's to give the American audience the choice of having a sanitised version, or full on smut, i.e. In The Cut. :p

    If that is the case it does make sense, and we should have the same here, as opposed to only having the choice of having a cut version, unless of course you buy other regioned ones.

    According to DVD Compare, the version you are looking at is uncut, but apparently a poor transfer. You'll have to do a search on the site for all the details.

    * R0 (Sweden) - No cuts - unrated
    * R1 (America) - No cuts - unrated
    * R1 (Canada) - No cuts - unrated
    * R2 (France) - No cuts - unrated
    * R2 (Germany) - No Cuts
    * R2 (Holland) - No cuts - unrated
    * R2 (Italy) - No Cuts
    * R2 (Japan) - No cuts
    * R2 (United Kingdom) - Yes - 0m 12s: Cuts required to two sequences of sexual violence involving strong sexual imagery (explicit close up of sexual penetration of woman during rape scene; sight of gun being pressed into man's anus prior to being fired).
    * R3 (Hong Kong) - Yes - 2m 30s for sex and violence.

    I couldn't agree more. As backwards as the US is in some respects, at least filmmakers have the option of releasing a film with no rating.

    Re: Baise Moi. It's not a good film. Imagine an emotionless but 100 times more extreme Thelma and Louise. The sex scenes are as close to porn as you can get but they are really cold. I don't think anyone can get turned on by them. The violence has all been seen before. The acting is dire and like many French films nothing much happens for much of the time.

    AVOID unless you really want to see women having full-on rudies. In which case you could buy a porno!

    Also worth mentioning that the stars of the actual film are indeed porno actresses.

    This isn't their best work :)
