Ukraine bans 'Bruno' movie

July 17, 2009|Associated Press

Ukraine's Culture Ministry says it has banned Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie "Bruno" because it is immoral.

The movie is centered around the adventures of a flamboyant gay fashion journalist from Austria.

The ministry said this week that Baron Cohen's depictions of sexual organs, homosexual intercourse and language are obscene and improper.

Some Austrian officials have spoken out against the film but have not taken any action against it.

Baron Cohen's previous movie, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," was banned in Kazakhstan and Russia.
