Comparison between the Asian Version and the International Version. The Asian Version is represented through the HK-DVD from Universe while the International version is represented through the US-DVD from Buena Vista.
Why this Asian Version exists at all is anyones guess. no more than one scene has been re-cut slightly and unimportant enough to be ignored altogether if one already owns the movie on DVD. It seems like Tarantino has trimmed the long Esteban sequence a bit for the American audience to make it somewhat more fast paced. Another explanation fails me.

The Asian Version is 46 sec. longer than the International Version!

81:47 Min. - 82:44 Min.
