    The 3 best minutes (even for some pudic people, labelled controversial) are missing… making it a quite ordinary movie; and for those preferring LIVING: a pure waste of time.

      I haven’t seen this so I can’t comment on the movie but yeah I heard there’s an uncut copy out there but can’t find it anywhere, I hope it will turn up someday.
