Pieces is a nice little flick by Juan Piquer Simón who also directed the absurd but entertaining Slugs. The movie has been available on DVD for quite some time in Germany. That being said, in February 2017, a Blu-ray was released that does not only contain the already available Uncut Version (= US Version) but also the so-called Spanish Extended Version which is also available on the US Blu-ray released in 2016. The longer version from Spain is approx. 1 minute but it is a little disappointing: There is no additional violence and no additional nudity whatsoever. Instead, there are different credits and longer shots of doing a jigsaw puzzle and that is basically it. But see for yourself...
