Right. Here is the Releaser's Notes
First you must know the Image/American Cinematheque DVD despite it's apparent officialness owns more to a shameful bootleg then anything else. Other then being hardsubbed the copy was probably taken from a festival print without Wakamatsu's approval, but what's even more disturbing (and baffling from such a prestigious institution!) is that it was released with the wrong cut!. They mixed the film reels! Now this being more of an experimental arthouse movie than straight narrative it might not have stricken viewers, nevertheless when you watch the correct cut it all makes much better sense.
Actually for those intrested in checking out, the mistake starts from around 30min 50sec. In the American Cinematheque dvd (chap 8 I think) you see October's bandage being removed (whereas later on, you have scenes where he's wearing his bandage!). The Japanese dvd cut instead features the love scene between Fall and February from Winter group. The wrong mix of reels goes up until around 43min, then the movie cut comes back to it's correct order.
So there isn't additional footage to this edition, just the proper cut intended by director Wakamatsu which you will finally be able to enjoy with english subs. What I did was take the transcribed subs available from Kloofy which were ripped from the hardsubbed R1, transcribe the missing lines (around 90/100 lines missing), and retime the whole lot to the R2J. Believe me... quite some work if you want to know.
I believe this movie being one of the most important contributions among all ATG co-productions and by extension to Japanese cinema of that period, so I guess it deserves the golden treat ! enjoy...
