Les Amants (The Lovers)

Direction: Louis Malle

On condition that some scenes are deleted, the film is authorized to screening but prohibited to minors under 16. On its release in movie theatres, private citizens and Catholic Associations demand the intervention of the judicial authority. The request for the original Edition with Italian subtitles is not taken into account by the Committee. The Second Edition receives an harsher judgment by the Committee, which prohibits it to minors under 18. Only on the New Edition for the television, the age limit is reduced to 14 years. In the attached video, you can see the film cuts preserved at the Cineteca Nazionale (Rome).
