Fifty Shades of Grey OK for French 12-year-olds.

Post by bindeweede »

But in France, children as young as 12 have been given the green light to see the film at the cinemas after it was given the second-lowest classification possible.
Why?
Because it's just not sexy enough, says Jean-Francois Mary, president of France's Board of Film Classification, who said that it was nothing more than a "schmaltzy romance".

The newspapers seem to be full of the publicity. (Desperation, having looked at a few reviews?) Well, what do I know? I haven't read any of the books and I won't be going to see the film.
