Just watched this version for the second time in a week. Can't add much more than has been said elsewhere on here. Great film, beautifully shot (at times), great score, glad that the happy ending wasn't used. I mean, how on earth would the sheriff escape the freezing river ?
Some questions though!
On the DVD it states that the "alternative" was made for Asian and North African markets yet elsewhere on the forum I believe someone said that it was North American. Which is correct?
On the trailer, during the very end shot, Silence is clearly talking, please explain. I think on the thread for the film itself it has been said that Trintignant did this on the alternate ending shots. I don't see this, he smiles but no lip movement.
Also on the trailer, the dialogue between the sheriff and Pauline, after the "potato" shooting, seems to be slightly different and from another angle possibly. Were there 2 English dialogue prints?
I know some of you seasoned "spaggers" will help me out! Thanks!
