    This appears to be the German version. Adding “Starkstrom” on the title screen at 2m45s. Also explains the 25fps perhaps. There is also a little blip of foreign language at 9min, 27m30s, and 1h2m20s. Other than that, the differences as compared to a VHS copy I had are inconsequential frames from scene transitions mostly. This version is widescreen crop from the full frame. Has color than others but a bit over saturated. Also a little underexposed and slightly crushed blacks. Other version are overexposed and crushed whites. Would be nice to have a proper film scan someday.

    I believe the version titled Bells is uncut. I have two versions but both are bad quality. Thanks for this.

    I know is only available on VHS, but there’s gotta be a better quality rip out there somewhere from a less degraded tape. This is practically unwatchable in spots. Really wish this would get remastered for bluray.
