A few days ago Adrian Lyne's Lolita became available in China too - in
movie theatres as well as on pirated VCD copies with the price of less than
2$. The film comes with Chinese subtitles and I hope in its full version.
As far as I know, they made no publicity of the event probably because of
such semi legal approach.
