China Bans Censored Brothel Film – BBC

From BBC News:

Authorities in China have banned a film set in a Beijing massage parlour that had already been heavily censored for its sexually explicit content.

Lost In Beijing was released in Chinese cinemas on 30 November after scenes showing dirty streets, prostitutes and gambling were removed from the movie.

According to the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television, however, the film still violated regulations.

Its producers have been banned from making films in China for two years. [Full Text]
