Poster of "2 Become 1" banned in HK subway
www.chinaview.cn 2006-02-09 08:10:15

¡¡ BEIJING, Feb. 9 -- The poster for the movie "2 Become 1" has been banned from Hong Kong subways due to its apparent vulgarity.

    The movie, due for release in Asia on March 2nd, co-stars Richie Ren and Miriam Yeung and is directed by Wing-cheong Law.

    The poster depicts a half-naked woman with her breasts showing through computer jigsaw effects.

    The actress Miriam Yeung has reacted strongly to the ban stating there is no pornography in the movie. The design is apparently meant as a positive promotion for women¡¯s public health. If the breast was wholly hidden, the poster¡¯s message wouldn¡¯t work at all. The subway department seems too sensitive regarding the subject of female breasts.     

    The movie is adapted from a novel called ¡°Mourning for Breast¡±. In a comedic manner it tells the story of white-collar Bingbing, a woman suffering from breast cancer. The amusing but moving movie has won viewer group approval as well as praise from the State Administration of Radio, Film and TV.
