Or Peculiar Neighbors. That's what they called Armistead Maupin's More Tales of the City which was broadcast last night on 8tv, "la privada de Catalunya". We definitely saw the "european version" which featured plenty of full frontal and rear nudity. I especially liked seeing the furry Michael Tolliver (Paul Hopkins) naked. The sex scenes were much more explicit than the expurgated DVDs that I own. 8tv did display a "18" in the upper-left corner of the screen, but there were no "viewer discretion advised" notices.

This reminds me of a recent film I saw, Gorditos, in a cinema. The trailers, which of course are not MPAA-rated here, showed a couple of three-ways to spur interest in the films. Gorditos started off with the main character revealing his naked furry body in the first scene.

When I first saw Cachorro at the Chicago Film Festival, it was the European version, which as you know starts off with a hot scene of two bears fucking in the protagonist's bedroom as reflected in various domestic objects. A few months later, when I saw the film in a local theatre, the objects were still there but the fucking wasn't; it had been reduced to a non-explicit post-coital moment.

Oops! This was told to me by someone else. They must have been mistaken.
