I was thinking about this movie myself the other day as well... wasn't there a rumour that Criterion might release this?

Get the R4 Australian version. It's uncut.
The R2 UK version and the HK version are cut.

Forgot to mention that the English name of "Fat Girl" ( ma soeur!) for the R4 Australian version is "For my Sister".

I searched four different Aussie etailers and can't find it. Where'd you get it Jojo?

For some reason, the Australian sites no longer list ma soeur! on their sites. It might be OOP now.

I bought it from a Canadian site because the price was about the same as
importing directly from Australia but the shipping was much faster. Apparently they still have it in stock.

The disc is released by the same company that released the Director's cut Betty Blue. Both of them come with nice Anamorphic transfer and are actually R0 PAL.

I can't speak for the rest of Region 1, but the Ontario film board denied the film a theatrical release here, so I'm not sure how a Canadian R1 disc would pan out.

Thank you, Jojo. I just place an order with machiaveldvd.com. Hopefully they are reliable.

Do you mean R2 (UK)?

1 minute & 28 seconds. I'd best not say what was cut as it is in a sequence right at the end of the movie. Click onto http://www.bbfc.co.uk to read a description of what was cut out.

I didn't think the HK DVD was cut? I saw an HK VCD which appeared uncut, and I thought the DVD would be the same. Cut or not, it's cheap at coolashop and the like.

You can still order the Australian disc directly from the distributor:
http://www.avchannel.com.au/
It is listed under the original title ( ma soeur!).

Dazza.

There is an explicit footage (erected penis) in ma soeur!
As far as I know the HK censors do not allow explicit scene like this to be passed uncut even in their III rating (18+). The Idiots was also cut in the HK release while the R2 UK was passed uncut by BBFC with the 18 rating.

I also doubt that the HK version is Anamorphic.
