Comparison:

  • International version
  • Italian version
Release: Sep 29, 2010 - Author: Playzocker - Translator: Matar - external link: IMDB
Comparison of the cut DVD version of e-m-s (FSK 16) and the uncut Italian DVD version of Medusa Home Entertainment (V- M. 14 anni).

There are two different versions of Dario Argento’s shocker “Non Ho Sonno” worldwide.
One international version (IntV) and one Italian version (IV).
The difference between these two versions can only be found in takes with book titles or texts.
In the IF are only Italian titles/texts whereas the titles and texts are in English in the IntF version.
Because of the existing material it is not possible to say whether Argento produced both versions and the alternative material or if one of the two right holders arranged localization.
In the IntF one can see Italian texts in the background very often, newspaper clipping are in Italian, too.
In the Italian version one can see a book title in English for a second when Moretti takes out some books from a box but when he takes out the specific book, the title is in Italian.

The German version is based on the international version.

Attention: This cut report just registers the changes of the IntV.
The cuts (because of censorship) of the FSK 16 version (which is responsible for the runtime difference) can be found here:

Overall there are 21 changes , the IntV is 3,52 sec. longer..
Runtime of the Italian version (IV) without final credits: 1:52.10 min
Runtime of the FSK 16 version (IntV) without final credits: 1:49.41 min
Runtimes come from both versions according to the pattern IV/FSK 16.
