Censorship

When Les Femmes was first released in Italy in 1970 the Committee for the Theatrical Review of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities rated it as VM18: not suitable for children under 18. In order for the film to be screened publicly, the Committee imposed the following modifications: 1) Delete the naked scenes of Marianne lying in bed; 2) Reduce the sequence of the sexual intercourse between Jerome and Marianne who are naked; 3) Reduce the final sequence of the sexual intercourse between Jerome and Clare in order to avoid scenes in which she is naked and scenes of lustful caresses.[2] The reason for the age restriction, cited in the official documents, is that: even after the cuts, the movie is still imbued with eroticism and it is inappropriate to the sensitivity of a minor.[3] The official document number is: 55377, it was signed on 20 January 1970 by Minister Domenico Magrì.[4]
