Chinese Tourist

It seems that as the Chinese are becoming more free that they also want to see the same movies we all see. Not just the ones their government allows.

This from the International Herald Tribune:

"Travelers have made their way to Hong Kong to see movies before but always in much smaller numbers. Critics and commentators here attribute the interest in Lee’s movie to a variety of factors, from word of mouth about risqué sexual content stripped from the censored version, to a sensitive political subtext rarely seen in mainland cinema, to the fame of the Academy Award-winning director.

Perhaps most important, though, is the rise of a class of affluent urban dwellers in China’s prosperous eastern cities who have grown increasingly accustomed to ever more choice in their lives."

China believes that it could possibly go to a U.S. like rating but has also said movies not fit for kids are not fit for adults either.

China is getting freer socially as its markets have gone more open.
