BEIRUT: General Security denied Saturday allegations that a movie directed by a Lebanese director has been banned in the country.

“This is completely inaccurate and no importing company has asked for a permit to bring in this movie from the General Directorate of the General Security until this date,” the security agency said in a statement.

Last week, news emerged that the movie “Too Much Love Will Kill You,” has been banned in Lebanon by General Security for allegedly containing scenes that insult Lebanese society.

The movie, which had its first preview in Cannes last year, is scheduled to be released in France on Jan. 23, 2013.

General Security also accused the director, Christophe Karabache, of attempting to promote his movie by disseminating “false information.”

“It seems that the director insists on spreading false information full of allegations for promotional purposes for his movie and his quest for fame at the expense of Lebanon and its institutions,” the statement added.

The movie focuses on a Russian woman who escapes her boring life in Paris to Beirut to become a cabaret dancer. There, she meets several different people including Karabache who play a minor role in his film.
