Top Ten Movies that are Rated R in the USA but 12, 6 or All Ages in Germany


The Top Ten

1 Psycho (1960)

Wow. It sure is hard to believe that most 12-year-old German kids saw this movie for the first time.

Psycho is pretty dated and most kids will have seen parodies of the shower scene before. - Martin_Canine

This movie came out several years before the rating system was put into use.

Rated 12 in Germany (re-rating, was rated 16 before). - Martin_Canine

2 The White Ribbon

Rated 12. - Martin_Canine

3 Schindler's List

I know that it's a message against Nazism but I completely disagree with it being 12+. I think it should probably at least be 16+ as kids are going to get disturbed by seeing scenes such as a guy getting his head blown to pieces from a shot, a woman getting shot in the back of a head, a guy sniping many Jews, a scene of patients being shot to death, as well as a scene of children being shot to death. It's too graphic for a 12+ movie. - jack2244

It shouldn't be rated as 12. - zxm

Rated 12.

This movie is unusually violent for a 12+ movie in Germany. But the thing is that movies that have a message against war or Naziism usually get a lower rating. - Martin_Canine

5 Amélie

Rated 6. - Martin_Canine

6 The Lives of Others

Rated 12. - Martin_Canine

10 The Pianist

When I saw this I was 12 (or maybe even younger). There was nothing serious to be rated as R. At least not for me. - zxm
