Baise-Moi - Specs Thread
 

Baise-moi (Arrow Video) DVD





Sex and shooting assault the senses in Baise-moi [literally ‘**** Me’ or ‘Kiss Me’], a bloody buddy movie that’s like Thelma and Louise on acid. Banned on release in France, the film has provoked as much horror as it has debate.


Manu – a part time porn star - and Nadine – a hooker – set out to leave their town for Paris after witnessing and being subject to rape and violence. They rage against societal expectations in a fury of robbery, orgiastic lust and murder.


One of the most controversial movies of the last 20 years, Baise-moi was described as the most sexually explicit film to ever reach British screens by the UK press, the film offers the complacent viewer a cinematic slap in the face.


Special Features:

- Special Features to be announced closer to the time!

- Original theatrical trailer

- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Joe Wilson

- Collector’s booklet featuring writing on the film by author Kier-la Janisse

Release date: 25th March 2013
Region 2
RRP £15.99

ARROW VIDEO'S BAISE-MOI IS AVAILABLE ON DVD FROM 25TH MARCH 2013. PRE-ORDER YOURS HERE.

Well? Cut or uncut?

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 6th November 2012 06:23 PM

Looks as if it ain't been decided yet....has Arrow submitted the full uncut version?

I don`t care whether it`s uncut or not... this film is so booooooooring. I think I even spotted a fake d*ck somewhere... :fear:

Well, I do. If I buy it, it'll only be if it's uncut.

Daemonia 7th November 2012 01:09 AM

I doubt very, very much it will be the full uncut version. If Arrow submit the full version, the BBFC will still cut it. A rape scene that includes hardcore penetration shots? The BBFC don't like sexual violence at the best of times, but mix that in with some hardcore footage and there's no way it'll get past the censors at Soho Square. Personally, I don't think Arrow will resubmit it, they'll just re-use the already passed edit IMO (which will also save them BBFC fees, saving themselves £600-odd).

And I will also save myself some money. :)

Demoncrat 7th November 2012 10:34 AM

Ditto. :(

Daemonia 7th November 2012 02:23 PM

Yes, it would be nice to think the BBFC are all grown up and stuff - but you know how the British are about sex (especially the BBFC). It's perceived as either dirty or offensive. Britain really needs to mature and grow up a bit. ;)

Steel76 7th November 2012 03:00 PM

I don´t understand why the BBFC even bother to still cut movies, especially in this day and age when anyone can easily buy an uncut import version or watch it online.
And it´s also comical how afraid they are of hardcore porn, when it´s just a mouse click away ;)

Are there any hardcore stuff at all avalible in the UK, or is it all softcore?

Hardcore pornography is only available legally from licensed sex shops. You can't buy it anywhere else and you can't buy it by mail order.

There is a special classification for hardcore porn in the UK - R18

R18 certificate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pete 7th November 2012 04:23 PM

They do allow hardcore in non R18 rated films - even the old DVD of BAISE-MOI contains all but 12 seconds of it. It's rare but they do.

Some R18s (legally available HC) are stilll trimmed, tis like living in the sweetie pocket of Mary Whitehouse this country sometimes.....:mmph:

Pete 7th November 2012 04:54 PM

They cut massive chunks out many R18 titles but really what's the point?

Practically everyone has got the internet and access to the billions of completely uncensored porn sties which cater to every depraved fetish imaginable. And they're free!

They've still to grasp the concept that penetration takes place during sexual intercourse! :lol:

Anyone wanting to know where to get hardcore in the UK.....take a trip to Liverpool OR drop Pete a line!:pound:

Cut for urination? I thought scat and watersports were legal. Do you know if scat is also illegal?

It's illegal to urinate now? I know what the Tories mean now about taxing the water - just didn't realise we had to pass it first. :lol:

Actually, the watersports thing just makes me think of Alan Partridge. 'They go to the toilet on each other?????'

God do I love Alan Partridge. When people say they don't find it funny I just don't understand why. The same goes for Peep Show.

Not a fan of Alan Partridge or 'Peep Show', so I could have made the connection in one post, not two!

Boooo! Alan Partridge is brilliant, one of the few things on TV to actually make me laugh.

It's meant to be somewhere near the end of this year. So I was led to believe anyway.

You can - plenty of legitimate UK stores sell R18 hardcore films by mail order via their websites.

I'd rather not advertise porn companies on Cultlabs, thanks. How about you just google "porn dvd" + uk? Cheers.

Compliance with UK law.

The BBFC would be failing in their legal obligations under the VRA and other legislation if they were to choose not to cut illegal or harmful material simply because the same scenes start turning up on the net.

bedorca 6th December 2012 06:26 AM

Lots of pissplay in Island Of Death!

And Arrow included some hardcore porn in Caligula

So, will Baise-Moi be cut or uncut? :confused:

g053584398 6th January 2013 09:14 PM

I would probably buy the new release if it turns out to be the uncut version.

fuzzymctiger 7th January 2013 04:45 AM

According to Stephen, Arrow have done further cuts on top of the BBFC cuts, according to the BBFC website

That was Score, but I've been told by someone that all they've cut is what the BBFC have told them to.

Ok sorry. I guess this is probably going to stay the same at around 12s of cuts I think.

Special Features:
- Original Standard Definition presentation of the film, available in the original 1.66:1 widescreen ratio for the first time in the UK
- Optional English subtitles
- The Making of Baise-moi – a forty minute documentary featuring behind the scenes images and interviews with directors Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi as well as Karen Bach and Raffaëla Anderson, the stars of the film
- Q&A recording with the directors
- Original theatrical trailer
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Joe Wilson

I think that the version I have contains:
- Cast/Crew Interview
- Making Of
- Trailer
so not much difference?

PaulD 7th February 2013 10:09 AM

From Arrow on Facebook: "BAISE-MOI has been passed UNCUT - for the first time in the UK the film will be able to be seen as intended and in widescreen!"

Pete 7th February 2013 10:10 AM

According to Arrow this has just been passed Uncut!

Edit: Paulie D beat me to it!
