    Thank you so much also for the two different versions. The point where the Director’s Cut was censored is odd already, implying that the surpression by her husband within her lifetime is quite ok as far as her body is treated will afterwards. Even worse is the Producer’s Cut where the ape woman is unaskedly cured from her freakdom, the husband becomes a dock worker and therefore refuses the offer from a group of four dwarfs to manage them: only being a freak is not enough today, he summarizes, shaking his head.
    Anyway, very well shot and interesting film!

    What’s the difference between the two versions?

      two versions of the film: the original and uncensored Director’s Cut of the film with the darker finale that Ferreri shot, and a slightly longer Producer’s Cut with a more optimistic finale, which was introduced at the Cannes Film Festival in 1964.
