Chocolate, meanwhile, is playing in Singapore. MovieXclusive has an article and photo gallery from a press conference by Jeeja.
And the film is reviewed at Nutshell Review. Stefan notes the film has been censored in Singapore, where it is rated NC-16 -- not a high enough classification, apparently, that the sex scene between Zen's gangster-moll mother (Olympic-torch bearer Ammara Siripong) and yakuza father (Hiroshi Abe) can be shown. All the action scenes unspool in their full glory, however. Stefan says:
Only in Singapore do you have the sex scene severely edited, which I thought was important as that's how Zen was conceived. Violence is OK, but sex is zero here.
Makes me wonder if the eventual Singapore DVD release will be censored.
