Brotherhood of the Wolf (Pacte des Loups, Le)

There are several edits made to this version of the film that differentiate it from both the single disc Region 1 US version and the Region 1 Canadian and Region 2 French Director's Cut versions of the film. The cuts to the Region 4 disc (the same as the HMV Exclusive 2 disc version available in the U.K.) all pertain to the King's hunter Bauterne with all his scenes cut from the U.K. theatrical and disc versions of the film. This is the case with our disc here in Region 4. This doesn't look to be a censorship issue, but I have been unable to find any concrete reason as to why they may have been removed these scenes other than for pacing reasons.
