Comparison between the HD main version and the (S)EXPORT bonus version - both included on the German Blu-ray by FilmArt

- 4 extensions
- Runtime difference: 61.4 sec (= 1:01 min)


The French sleaze grenade Brigade of Death confronts you with curious madness that has some bad taste with its story about murders in the transsexual milieu.

1. "(S)EXPORT version" - 95min PAL / 99min Blu-ray
The longest version, as it could be found on the Nordic VHS releases, among others. It is included on the German Blu-ray as a bonus, since about one minute of rough sex scenes are missing in the HD master and these parts could therefore only be added in SD.

2. HD main version - 94min PAL / 98min Blu-ray
As just indicated, a few sex scenes are missing in the HD master of the film, which is virtually the main version of the German Blu-ray. Possibly, these were shot at that time especially for export territories.

Both the HD main version and the "(S)EXPORT version" which was reconstructed with SD inserts are included in the set on the German Blu-ray by FilmArt. In the following comparison, we describe the differences between the HD main version and the "(S)EXPORT version". As said, it is limited here to a few sex scenes. Since the nudity scenes are rather unnecessarily exploitative and not too spectacular in the end, it is basically enough to look at the HD main version, which also comes along in uniform picture quality.

Runtimes are ordered as follows: HD main version Blu-ray / (S)EXPORT bonus version Blu-ray

13:23 / 13:23-13:28

Right at the beginning in the nightclub, you can see the two ladies in a closer shot, which can only be seen from further away in the surrounding scenes.

4.9 sec

14:07 / 14:12-14:16

Another shot of it.

4.5 sec

35:27 / 35:37-36:16

The (S)EXPORT version starts earlier at the swingers party with corresponding scenes in the living room. A short cut to the car outside and the follow-up shot inside starts a little earlier.

39 sec

36:31 / 37:20-37:33

One shot indoors a little longer. The camera pans over to where other visitors are enjoying themselves.
