‘A Serbian Film’ UK Release the Most Censored Film in 16 Years?!

As we reported here, the UK versions of Srdjan Spasojevic’s controversial A Serbian Film (review) will be neutered upon release. The Guardian is reporting that it’ll be the “most censored film in 16 years.” A Serbian Film, a violent thriller set in the world of pornography has become the most cut film in 16 years, says the British Board of Film Classification. Four minutes and 11 seconds were edited out before the board felt able to grant it an 18 certificate, a record exceeded by the Indian film Nammavar in 1994. A board spokeswoman said: “A number of cuts were required to remove elements of sexual violence that tend to eroticize or endorse sexual violence.” The producers argued that the hardcore content was intented as an allegory of “our molestation by the Serbian government“. You can watch the UK trailer inside. It will open at UK cinemas on 10th December 2010, with a January 3 Blu-ray/DVD date also locked in.
