For no discernible reason every shot in the International version is different from the US version, the structure being -almost- the same.
Also, intertitles are sometimes subtly different, probably to de-americanize some words or smth.
One ridiculous change here is 2 German names (to and from, you can guess which way for which character).
The int'l version is about 15 minutes shorter, owing to 25framerate and alternate scenes being generally either shorter or faster (before the action begins, then the pace is more or less the same).
Also, the current best AFAIK release of int'l v. is sepia-tinted and there's just less quality than the MOC release, obv.
