    Tartan Video’s 9 Songs, Featuring Live Performances by
    Eight of Today’s Top Alternative Rock Bands
    Available on DVD Nov. 22nd in Two Versions:
    Unrated Full Cut & Unrated Edited Version


    — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

    “Obliterating a century of cinematic sexual conventions.”

    — Playboy

    “A touching, often poetic, sometimes achingly real snapshot of a brief encounter almost entirely through the bedroom.”

    — Derek Elley, Variety

    From award-winning director Michael Winterbottom (24 Hour Party People, Code 46, Welcome to Sarajevo) comes the sexually charged, critically acclaimed 9 Songs. Featuring live performances by eight of today’s top alternative rock bands, two versions of 9 Songs rock onto DVD Nov. 22nd from Tartan Video.

    Available in an “Unrated Full Uncut Version” (theatrical version) and an “Unrated Edited Version,” 9 Songs charts the depths of sexuality and music in one relationship and how they are forever intertwined. Featuring live performances by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Von Bondies, Elbow, Primal Scream, The Dandy Warhols, Super Furry Animals, Franz Ferdinand and Michael Nyman.

    In 9 Songs, Matt (Kieran O’Brien, 24 Hour Party People, HBO’s Band of Brothers) meets Lisa (Margo Stilley in her feature film debut) during a mobbed rock concert at London's Brixton Academy, they are in bed together by night's end. Over the next few months, their growing sexual passion is balanced only by their love of music and the concerts they attend.

    Premiered at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, 9 Songs is winner of the “Best Cinematography” award at the 2005 San Sebastián International Film Festival.

    9 Songs is presented in anamorphic widescreen, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and DTS Surround Sound 5.1.

    Special DVD features: include behind-the-scenes footage featuring the bands of 9 Songs; concert-only performance option; interviews with cast and crew; original theatrical trailer; and trailers of Tartan Video’s upcoming releases.

    So it looks like the R1 unrated is also missing the extra long extended sex scenes as well. These were to be included as an extra with the R2 (which I guess is the unrated version as the BBFC allowed uncut and is very explicit) from Optimum but the BBFC rated them R18 (in UK only saleable to over 18s in licensed sex shops and not by mail order), so they left them off.
