The film was originally seen by the BBFC in an unfinished version, for advice as to the film's suitability at '12A'. The BBFC advised the company that the film would most likely receive a
'12A' as it was, but that care should be taken when finishing the film not to increase the intensity of certain scenes.
When the completed version of the film was submitted for classification, reductions to one of those
scenes had been made and the film was passed '12A' without cuts.
The film including the BBFC cuts became the International Version used for all worldwide releases.

Summary Review: A portrait of human depravity
Quiet Days in Clichy is an enjoyable and entertaining expose of the irreverent antics of two friends
living a Bohemian existence in the Paris suburb of Clichy during the sexual revolution of the sixties.
The film is based upon the novel of the same title by American author Henry Miller whose publications were the frequent
cause of controversy in the US throughout the author's life.
The film has been the subject of discussion and controversy since it was first released in 1970 and the FBI seized the only English-language copies as they came
into the US through customs in San Francisco - consequently the film didn't make it to US theatres. The film has even been described by the Catholic Bishops Board of Review as a portrait of human depravity.
Nonetheless, it is unlikely to shock an audience of today - the film is neither vulgar nor depraved - it couldn't really be described as pornographic; instead it could be better summarised as intellectual erotica.
It is gentle and humorous. Like life, it lacks a traditional storyline and is, instead, a collection of experiences - some good, some bad, some funny, some not.
