"Apocalypto" Finally Got Age Restriction in Italy

An Italian court has issued a temporary ban preventing those under age 14 to see gory Mayan drama "Apocalypto" in local theaters.

Ending the dispute concerning the nonexistence of viewer restrictions on "Apocalypto" in the country, an Italian court has temporarily ruled that youths under age fourteen are barred from watching the gory film, overthrowing the decision made by local cinema board of review that considered it fit enough for children.

Marco Ramadori, a lawyer for Codacons, the consumer group which brought the case to the court in favor of setting an age-limit, remarked yesterday, January 8, that the ban is valid until January 17, after which a panel of judges is expected to make a final ruling on the case.

With this restriction, Russia thereby becomes the only country screening "Apocalypto" without an age restriction. The picture has already been deemed R-rated feature in the U.S while getting an age-18 certification in both Britain and Germany.
