Auteur Cinema Accused of Sexual Content

Novosibirsk officials are going to close a local cinema specializing on cinema classics and auteur films.
      Among the reasons for liquidation of the cinema Cinema the property department mentions its elitism and criticizes frivolous contents with erotic implications as well as perversion scenes of sexual character in the films by Michelangelo Antonioni, Pier Pasolini and Peter Greenaway.
      For unprepared viewers they may seem shocking and incomprehensible the property department concludes.
      According to the appendix 1 of the official document, these are the films Red Desert by Michelangelo Antonioni, Love Me If You Dare by Yann Samuell, The Pillow Book by Peter Greenaway, Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom by Pier Paolo Pasolini and other films screened in June, 2011 at the cinema Cinema.
      Some of the films due to sexual perversion scenes were repeatedly banned in European and Asian countries the document reads.
