Hmmm..IMDB lists this at 89 mins; Sundance is showing an 86 min version


Please dont tell me another film has been butchered for the American audience.

Maybe it's a difference from PAL/NTSC. different FPS, I do recall.

reply

the difference in fps will actually result in a PAL movie being shorter than a NTSC movie

"Related to NTSC, PAL has a shorter run time because of the higher amount of "fps" - PAL movies are (normally) not cut, but they are "faster" (PAL Speedup)."

no, Sundance certainly does not edit their films. They would show the best version available. Even TCM doesn't censor; I saw Franco's "Venus In Furs" on TCM and that was uncut.. Time listings for films is often wrong.
