Gymkata (1985)

Today, while looking up some information on Gymkata to make a message board post about Children of Men, I happened to notice that the camp classic was...wait for it...banned in Finland?

There has to be a story behind this that is not nearly as interesting as all the ones my imagination is coming up with. I tried Google, but didn't find anything.

Anyone able to help me out with the skinny on this--or even an entertaining lie?

A reader has since posted about this question at, suggesting the reasons were largely political since the film's weapons/political subplot may have been viewed as too risky in a nation in the shadow of a not-yet-defunct Soviet presence.
