I’m pleased to inform you that the rating for the Lord of the Rings in Finland has been lowered from the initial K-15 to K-11 after the Finnish distributor had complained about the decision when the movie had received its K-15 rating over a week ago. It was a tight call; the votes in Valtion elokuvatarkastamo (the board responsible for rating all movies in Finland) went 3-3, but in the case of a draw the movie was rated in favor of the appealer. “The decision was a relieving one. Now all countries in Scandinavia are unanimous in rating this movie,” said Lasse Hyyti, the CEO of FS Film, the distributor in Finland.
