When Amon randomly shoots the prisoner when no one confesses to stealing the chicken, the man's body crumples straight down to the ground. In the next view, the man's body is laying flat on his stomach when he is shot in the head by the officer.
There are no opening credits after the title is shown.
In an unprecedented move, when this film was broadcast on US television by NBC in 1997, it was, at Steven Spielberg's insistence, shown nearly uncensored (a sex scene was slightly edited) with all violence and nudity intact. It was the first program to air with the then new "TV-M" (now "TV-MA") rating. See also: Saving Private Ryan (1998).
