For this compare I used 5 different releases.

1- indonesian tv version / widescreen / Bahasa
by far the best version, this version will be used as master fort he fan project.
alott of cuts are in this version, mostly love scene's and 1 or 2 bloody scene's.

2 - freek vhs / cropped 16:9 / english
a very dark print, maybe the worst of all, but also the most complete + it has an english audio track.
the audio of the version will be used ... will try to use as little as possible from this print for the missing scene's.

3 - indonesian betamax / cropped 16:9 / bahasa
better picture quality as the greek tape, but also cut. some scenes that are not on the tv version are on the betamax ... but the cut scene's are also cut ?!? ...

4 - french dvd / cropped 16-9 / french
very dark print, also strong cut, some scene's that are missing from the version are in this version, some scene's look better as others.

5 - indonesian vcd / cropped 16-9 / behasa
I believe this is the same as the indoensian betamax

French vhs, I didnt use this for the compare, I presumed it is the same copy as the dvd

Random Images too compare picture Quality

according to film indonesia the movie should run 86min
the tv version runs around 80min, but alott has been cut from it. I can imagen that 86 can be reached when all the missing scene that can be found on the other versions are added.

To Burn The Sun(1981) goes previous too Ferocious Female Freedom Fighters (1982).
I find it a great movie, very entertaining and not even a bad story.
Eva Arnaz looks stunning, another reason why I love to watch indonesian movies :wub:

the indonesian tv version looks fantastic, remasterd widescreen .... but cut from any love scene's and blood.
funny that a kiss between Yanti and Rachman is cut .... but after they have been married a kiss between the two isnt cut anymore.

here is an overview of what is missing from the tv version.
0:06:34 - man walks into screen
0:09:11 - kissing couple
0:15:59 - robbery & rape
0:17:01 - dirty talk after the rape
0:20:53 - zoom out on legs
0:24:53 - kiss in hotel room
0:25:41 - whore house room scene
0:37:37 - train station & sex scene
0:38:57 - sex scene trafficer
0:47:05 - flasback kiss
0:47:07 - flasback kiss
0:50:43 - guy bleeds on stone
0:57:44 - flashback rape & guy get head kicked open
