Norway film board lifts ban

October 02, 2003|From Associated Press

Norway's national film board lifted a ban on hundreds of films that were deemed too sexually explicit or violent, including 1994's "On Deadly Ground" starring Steven Seagal and the 1990 gangster epic "Miller's Crossing."

The decision came after several of the films, banned between 1913 and 1999, were deemed not so objectionable to the Nordic country of 4.5 million, which has deep roots in Lutheran piety. The board reviewed nearly 14,000 films since 1955, and banned 300. Those films can now be shown. It also will release many of the movies censored beginning in 1913 by its predecessor, the Government Film Control.
