Can You Identify These Films? – Page 2

The titles covered on this page are a selection of unidentified, Asian and European, movies that were cut or banned in Australia.

The country of production is taken from the National Classification Database and the decade of production is an educated guess. Do not rely on either to help identify a title, as they may be incorrect.

Please contact us if you are able to provide more information about any of these titles.

More unidentified films can be found on the corresponding page in Film Censorship Database No. 2.
