1.0 out of 5 stars Not Uncut... October 10, 2005
Sorry to disappoint customers here, but this version of the film is not uncut. It's actually cut even more than the Artisan release available in the U.S., which runs 159 minutes. This version runs 155 minutes. Several scenes are missing altogether.

The reason why this is shortened is because of the strict censorship rules in South Korea. Why this DVD has been advertised as uncut here and on Ebay remains a mystery. The cuts don't necessarily hurt the story, but then again there are the staunch filmgoers (like me) who prefer to see the film the way a director intended it.

It also kind of hurts that there are no English subtitles on this DVD, and it plays without sound. The audio track on your DVD player has to be changed to hear anything.

At this point (and after more than a little research) I have to conclude that there is no way to get an uncut version of "Breaking The Waves" in the U.S. There are uncut versions available in Europe but they do not play on our DVD players. The release from Artisan, which is standard here, is pretty close. From what I've read, there is only a few seconds of nudity removed.

So for us poor U.S. filmgoers, I think the bare-bones Artisan release is the only way to go. Maybe we'll get a real release, someday...

5.0 out of 5 stars very deep, very thought provoking June 10, 2010
This is a movie that requires a lot of thought. It is not for everybody. Many will miss its point. On my first viewing, i did not get a lot of it. A few years later, I read an article about it, and saw it again. Now, it is number 17 on my all time favorite movie list. All serious movie watchers should see it. Truly amazing.
