Was sold instantly with lesbian nuns. The showgirl part of it all just cracks me up, because all i remember is the pool scene. I literally sent a link to my friend with that, she miraculously managed to forget about that part.

No, won’t be out till the Fall. IFC is releasing it stateside and rumors of a recut are coming for theatrical because they’re afraid it’s too graphic and will get an NC-17 rating, meaning the uncut version won’t be seen until it hits Blu-ray.

Gotta say, I was not at all interested from the description, but am slightly intrigued after seeing the reactions. I'm sure there'll be a vocal backlash once it hits theaters in the US.
