Y Tu Mamá También (And Your Mother Too!)

This film has been edited into at least 2 different versions. The most notable of these are the two cuts made available in Region 1, these being an edited R rated cut of the film and an unrated cut of the film. The director has reportedly made several cuts of the film to satisfy the various censorship laws that are enforced around the world. For our cut of the film here in Region 4 Australia (Mexico is also in Region 4, but has their own version of the film), we look to have the unrated version as made available in Region 1. Although I am as yet unable to do a direct comparison of the unrated cut and the one we have here, all reports as to the major cuts to the film for the R version seem to be untouched here. The main points would be: These three scenes seem to be the most talked about in terms of editing and I can report that they are intact in this version. The Region 1 R rated version also is reportedly cut in terms of language, but I've found no specific instances as to where these cuts might be.
