Soulmate Has Problems With the British Censors
The case of Soulmate turned out quite surprising, especially for its director. The mystery film deals with a mourning widow who moves back to the countryside and befriends a ghost. In the UK, it was classified by the BBFC with an "18" rating. And it got that rating only after 4 cuts were applied to the movie. The BBFC deemed it problematic that some scenes show too much detail when a suicide is attempted. They feared that it could provoke reenactment by some viewers.
While it's still unclear whether everything is said and done in the matter, director Axelle Carolyn criticizes the decision via Twitter and wonders why a brutal horror movie like Hostel got through without any problems while her film had to be censored:
Soulmate's UK release is scheduled for July 21st, 2014. There's still no word on releases in other markets that could be uncut but we'll monitor the situation and will surely provide you with a comparison once it is possible.
UPDATE 25.06.2014: The BBFC database now lists the movie as being rated "15" after 4 cuts with a total runtime of 2:33 min. It has not been confirmed that this is cut but considering the difficulties laid out above, the probability of that is pretty high.
