Comparison of the cut version by Artsmagic (BBFC 18) and the uncut DVD by Mo Asia
Takashi Miike was first recognized internationally with his weird yakuza flick FUDOH – THE NEW GENERATION. Afterwards a lot more movies were following like Audition, the Dead or Alive triology, the manga release Ichi the Killer etc.
In GB the usage of clouts is kind of a taboo. This is the reason why Fudoh has been cut in several scenes. Violence against women is a sensitive topic as well. The version is still viewable because all the cuts have been placed pretty good and can’t be recognized.
BBFC18 = 98:22 Min.
uncut = 98:49 Min.
Time difference = 32 sec.
00:00 The GAGA COMMUNICATIONS logo is missing in the british version.
