James Cameron’s re-released Titanic 3D arrived in Chinese cinemas last week and Chinese netizens quickly learned that the famous nude scene where Kate Winslet’s character Rose is drawn by Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jack had been cut by China’s State Administration of Radio and Television (SARFT) censors, much their nostalgic disappointment

3D Titanic has been cut.

Didn’t understand [the appeal of nudity] when it wasn’t cut 15 years ago, but now I understand.

The noble see breathtaking beauty, while the small/low people see lewdness and obscene.

Saw [the movie Titanic] on television when I was small, and I was only about 10 years old at the time, surprised at the time that they were so liberal [allowing such to be shown], but now that it has been censored, it is a kind of laughable progress, like ostriches, sticking their heads in the sand when threatened, deceiving oneself~

It was quite titillating seeing it 15 years ago, felt it was quite open/liberal… Watching it again now I just feel like it is no big deal…

I’m reminded of how after watching this movie back then, the best part I could remember was this drawing scene.

The one part that shouldn’t be cut has been cut.

Leonardo DiCaprio was so young and handsome back then, now he has changed a lot. The passing of years is truly a tragedy.

Very few movies these days have this sort of clean naked human body scenes, the actors in a natural normal state. The background piano music in the background was well matched, neither overwhelming the scene nor too weak.
