Cane di paglia (The Straw Dogs)

Direction: Sam Peckinpah

The Review Committee, having viewed the film, and having ensured that a cut it has requested has been carried out, authorizes its public screening, with a viewing prohibition for minors under the age of 18. The second version, presented in 1985 with a partial re-editing, obtains a reduction of the prohibition to minors under the age of 14. The members of the new Review Committee, while acknowledging the paroxysm of violence at the end of the film, conclude that it is a “legitimate reaction of the protagonist to the violence committed by others, so that the viewing of these scenes is not advisable only for a particularly immature audience”. For the third version, presented with some cuts that the Committee deems insufficient, the prohibition to minors under the age of 14 is confirmed.
