This review is from: The Fifth Musketeer [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I like the movie but not the version offered by amazon.com. I watched the unrated version in Europe and it was much nicer and made sence. Here I watch a tape and get upset how conversations are cut in the middle just because of the nudity of Silvia Kristel or Ursula Anders. For example, when Louise de La Valliere comes to join the king in bed she gets undressed while they talk. End of the conversation is cut... Believe me, uncut version is not something restricted, it is not even close to be "too bad to show", I do not understand why it is so sensored here. I wish there were an original version to buy.

I have to agree on the censorship factors so very identifiable and prevalent in the United States. The same feelings have been oppressed onto movies and television show brought to DVD. Songs get changed, scenes "altered" and the editing of some programs is just embarrassing. I once had three different copies and versions (different studios) of "Voyager", "Impulse" and "Illusions". Former Second Lady, Tippi Gore, formerly former Vice President Al Gore's wife had her hands full with the choosing & censoring of many movies and actually helped cause studios to close due to her "involvement." I have done my best to keep this post edited, but the subject hits close to home. It makes the viewing of some programs more of a chore than pleasure. I'm sorry this sounds political. Their position was political when they began this venture. It's been going on for a while. It demonstrates how many things are "done" now in this country.
