‘Schindler’ off Swedish kids’ list

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — In a ruling last week, Sweden’s Censorship Board labeled “Schindler’s List” prohibited viewing for any Swede under 15 years old.

United Intl.

Pictures, the Swedish distributor of the pic, said Tuesday it would appeal the age restriction to a government Administrative Court.

UIP president Monika Tromm said her company is arguing for children as young as 11 to see the movie. Those as young as 7 should be able to see the movie if they are accompanied by their parents, the company argued.

“It is a history lesson which better than anything else vaccinates against xenophobia,” UIP said in its appeal.

In its decision, the board cited the film’s “large amount of scenes with gross violence, among other things close-ups of executions, threats, horror and degradation of people.”
