Censors turn a deaf ear as sisters talk of sex and city – Jane Macartney

From Times Online (link):

0,,272561,00THE audience of invited guests gasped and laughed from almost the first scene at yesterday’s premiere of one of the boldest domestic films yet shown in China.

Perpetual Motion, from the director Ning Ying, has caused a stir even before it opens in China’s most cosmopolitan cities this week, with critics decrying its portrayal of assertive woman who treat men as sex objects. Such a film would have been inconceivable in China only five years ago. The film, featuring four from Beijing’s educated elite, is being seen as Sex and the City, Chinese-style. The only men are two waiters who deliver lunch at the stylish home of Niuniu, a publisher, on the lunar New Year’s Eve.
