Private Lessons (1981) - cuts waived?

Postby m35541 » 11 Jul 2013, 14:18

Have the BBFC waived their cuts to this for the 2006 release. the running time is 87m, much longer than before (80m). However, some Amazon posters indicate that its still shone of 3m+ due to the fact that Sylvia Kristel appears nude in the same shot as a minor.

No way the BBFC would waive the cuts Tim.I have the 'uncut' Korean release which just pixellates a Sylvia Kristel full frontal.Like Night Hair Child a full release is highly unlikely with our current laws.I've yet to see NHC myself or the US bootleg as What The Peeper Saw.The virtually uncut version with minor pixellation my version has is here.As you will see for yourself it stands no chance of an uncut UK release.:

I have seen the uncut NHC (in America) I think the first problematic scene in which Britt Ekland strips in front of Mark Lester might well be waived now as there is no actual contact between the two IIRC and he is clothed. The second one in which she gets into a bed naked with him and he is bare chested (rest of him covered by bedsheet I think) and he starts fondling her breasts I guess would still be cut although given that cuts to the like of Tin Drum have been waived you can never tell.

The BBFC said this to me in 2006

As for Private Lessons, no the latest version was pre cut before submission in line with the previous releases. It is longer than previous releases but this is simply the result of the addition of some uncontentious extra material and a different running speed. None of the cut material has been put back (indeed it can't be put back because it involves indecent images of children).
