What are the differences between the R-Rated version and the Unrated version? How about the Workprint?
While this tolerably exciting erotic thriller was released in the uncensored version all over the world, the erotic scenes were cut or alternate shots were used in the US to achieve an R-rating in movie theaters and on VHS. A detailed comparison between both versions can be found here.The Workprint is quite interesting because here a completely different editing and partly fully different scenes were used. A detailed comparison between the uncensored Unrated Version and the Workprinkt with pictures can be found here.
