The French TV Version is 224.38 seconds (~ 3:45 minutes) shorter.



When Fifty Shades of Grey aired on French network TF1, people have to have been stunned because every single scene that contains sex or nudity had been altered - either by cuts or alternate footage. Especially the amount of alternate footage is incredible and it appears as if that footage had been shot for an eventual PG-13 version. Admittedly, those shots do have their appeal. But at the end of the day, the French TV Version sucks. Because not only is it heavily censored but the aspect ratio is also false. Thanks to zooming it, it is not exactly a joy to watch. And for some reason, the French TV Version fades to black numerous times when the Theatrical Version does not. As a consequence, footage gets lost but this will not be listed in the following comparison because it is too superfluous. Every now and then, a few seconds between the scenes are missing though - no fading to black and no cut either.
