yeah but the Cannes "redux" version is really just 1 and 2 edited together, containing all the japanese-version content. of course there is no credits in the middle, and the transition is fluent
this is what I got from france (email):
"Quentin Tarantino (and Lawrence Bender in the audience) has introduced Kill Bill the complete movie (japanese vol.1 with vol.2 together) the 05/23th for the audience of the Festival de Cannes. I was there, Quentin says first time ever the japane version of vol.1 is shown in another country and first time ever the 4 hour complete version is shown. Durind the screeening, we could hear the laugh of Quentin with the audience.. L\'integrale Kill Bill (the 4 hour version) will be release in 2005, confirmation. Some scenes has been cut, and some violent scenes are more longer.
L'INTEGRALE KILL BILL, haha, i like that expression
