This was mentioned in several articles at the time of release; further info
can be found at the IMDB.  Since the programmers at Bravo (Canada) say
there was only a North American version then this means that the film seen
in Canada was also redubbed (unless somebody can offer solid evidence
against this).

And for whatever amusement it's worth:  The film was cut by a few seconds
(two according to the IMDB though I seem to remember 7 or 8 from another
source) for the US; in England it was shown in theatres uncut but had 14
seconds trimmed for the video release.  The DVD in both countries has
deleted scenes as extras.  Ain't censorship wacky?
