The Romanian cinema board has declared Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac II" unfit for public viewing, a decision the distributor says is unique in Europe.

The movie was due to be released Feb. 7 but the National Center of Cinematography on Wednesday told the distributor the film would be labeled IM 18 XXX — banned to minors and the general public.

Distributor Independence Film called it "a case of censorship which is unique in Europe," and said it would appeal. Chairman of the Senate's Culture Committee Georgica Severin criticized the decision, saying "Nymphomaniac I" was already running in Romanian cinemas.

The two-part film is a drama about a woman's erotic journey from birth to the age of 50.
