Movie review not getting published. What's the problem?

Hi, my review (my account https://www.imdb.com/user/ur43903214/?ref_=nv_usr_prof_2 ) for this movie https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4697586/ was submitted twice but both times nothing happened (I just received the email receipt). I'm really wondering if there's a bug with this database entry because the movie has only 1 review while not being a totally obscure 1. In the first submission I wrote a quotation from the movie that included the word "fucked" and so I thought it might depend on that (is it the case?). Some days later (around 24h ago) I then submitted the same review with the word changed into "fuc*ed". Nothing again while IME reviews get always published within 12 hours.

Here's the review in case someone knows how submissions/publications work:

<<<

Powerful movie on the struggles of a group of irregular immigrants/refugees from around the world waiting for a residence permit in a Belgian reception centre. I succeeded in watching its 1h45mins at normal speed in one go: something that happens rarely with dramas. I guess it's the sign of a well produced piece of cinema: great writing, good direction and acting.

Indeed we are not thrown into the expected tearjerking or unsufferable tragedies. We instead witness the resiliency of brave men and women being annihilated by the ultimate challenges: the evil banality of bureaucracy and the hardships of integration within the heart of the supposed-to-be open, inclusive (and Christian) west.

It's hard to attribute a political position to the authors which IMO is a plus and denotes great intelligence. My only problem is with the main plot involving the MC which remains unresolved: couldn't they find a nice way to close it? Or maybe that's on purpose: another dull consequence of how things go.. "The minute you start to wish for things you're fuc*ed".

Hi Ladiloque -

I reviewed the text of your review above and did not find anything that was in violation of our guidelines, however, I suspect that your review was flagged based on the curse word within the quotation.

Please resubmit your review and promptly afterward, post the 18-digit submission reference number to this thread and our staff can take a look and approve for you.

Cheers!
