Buena Vista fights Swede call for ‘Musketeers’ cuts

The Walt Disney Co.’s Christmas pic, “The Three Musketeers,” has run into ratings problems in Sweden.

Distrib Buena Vista wants the film to get a rating that would allow anyone over the age of 7 to see the youth-oriented pic.

But the Board of Censors says such a rating would require cuts.

The censors want to make four cuts, totaling somewhat more than a minute. Three of the cuts are very short; the fourth is longer. The censors want to completely remove the scene in which the character of Porthos fights in a dungeon with a disfigured man.

Buena Vista has appealed the cuts. Managing director Erik Broberg told Daily Variety, “We appeal because we feel that these cuts are completely (unwarranted) in a pic of this kind.” He also pointed out that in neighboring Denmark and Norway, the film got similar ratings to the one BV wants without making any cuts.
