Comparison between the cut Dutch DVD by indies home entertainment (identical to the British DVD by Arrow Video) and the uncut British DVD re-release / Blu-ray by Arrow Video.

- 23 cuts
- Cut duration: 144.1 sec (= 2:24 min)

A few additional master errors, each less than 0.5 sec in duration, were not listed in the report.


The films of Tinto Brass have always been known to cause scandals and a lot of viewing material from our perspective as well, because in many countries the erotic adventures ran afoul of the censors. Frivolous Lola (original title: Monella) from 1998, for example, was only released censored by 4 minutes in Germany.

This film did not get unscathed through the BBFC ratings board in the UK either. Older DVDs by Arrow Video were cut by almost 2.5 minutes. . Particularly noticeable is probably the longer scene at the beginning, where two pastors smell Lola's bicycle saddle. Since the 2013 re-release (Blu-ray+DVD combo), however, the film is fortunately available uncut in the UK and that too in reasonable HD quality.

Note: The comparison was made with the Dutch DVD. There, one is otherwise often used to uncensored releases, but with this title, the DVD is unfortunately identical in content to the censored version in the UK.

Runtimes are ordered as follows: Dutch DVD in PAL / British DVD in PAL
