外國傳媒亦報道「Psyche Receiving the First Kiss of Cupid」風波

台灣文學作品《愛情神話》因封面採用名畫Psyche Receiving the First Kiss of Cupid,而一度遭香港影視處視為禁書,台灣的將門文物出版負責人尤其不齒影視處,更揚言明年會帶來涉及性愛動作的印度神像畫冊,反擊影視處的無知。

The first kiss may be Cupid’s last

AFP– An image of the Roman god of love Cupid and his wife sparked an indecency row leading a Hong Kong media watchdog to ban a book using the painting on its front cover, before later backtracking.

The 1798 painting of Psyche Receiving The First Kiss Of Cupid by French artist Francois Gerard was used on a book to be sold at a Hong Kong book fair.

But a local publisher was forced to temporarily withdraw the sale of the publication on Wednesday because the Telecommunications and Entertainment Licensing Authority (Tela) considered its cover indecent.

“A few officers from Tela took a look at the book and then their boss asked me not to sell it because it is indecent as the Cupids were half naked and the illustrations inside also showed nude images of them," said Alexander Chan, the manager of the book publisher.

Chan said it was the third year the book, a Chinese translation of a Korean publication called “Greek and Roman Myths," had been sold at the fair but he has never come across any trouble before.

But the watchdog reviewed the cover again later on Wednesday and made a U-turn, allowing it to be sold at the fair.

“I was so shocked that this had happened. This painting has been around a long time and has been considered as art. But how (is it that) the officials were so shallow and can’t tell the difference between indecency and art?" he said.

“How can they treat them as the same thing? This is a big problem," he told AFP.

Nudity is still equated with sex in Hong Kong, which is now in some ways more conservative than mainland China, which has already staged nude photographic exhibitions and also has many sex shops.

In 1995, the Hong Kong Obscene Articles Tribunal famously classified a newspaper picture of Michelangelo’s statue of David as indecent. The ruling was overturned on appeal.

In May, a university journal was also branded indecent for running a survey which asked questions on bestiality and incest.

  1. 喂! 又話不雅? 唔係下化?? 香港政府難道真是反智到這樣的地步麼?? 這已經不是第一次, 前車可鑑有上次大衛像的鬧劇, 成為國際大笑話. You were ignorant last time. And when you did not learn the lesson from last time and did it again now? You are really stupid……. “膠" 也!

    廢董曾經講過, 要把香港打造成為亞洲的倫敦紐約; 以影視淫審兩處的膠狀, 到了2047 都未必實現.

    看來明光社今次要多謝影視處幫助擋了一些子彈. 想不到 “道德塔理班" 這個道德光環竟然另有他人嚷著爭住戴. 哈哈! 哈哈! 哈哈哈!

    審裁標準如此僵化, 實屬匪夷所思. 不問情由, 總之露點就要封……

    在此建議影視淫審兩處查封所有行針的鐘錶, 因為以它們的審裁標準, 行針鐘錶實屬極之不雅: 何止露三點? 露足十二點也! 無怪天星鐘樓都要拆啦!!

  2. i think “不齒影視處" 應寫成 “不恥影視處"。

  3. 整死香港始終靠你

  4. The equal of London and New York? Nah!

    With the mindset of Talibans , it may suit for Kabul or Islamabad.

    Fishermen running H.K with peasants as boss.

    P.S. Keep up your good humor , 廢苦bro. Another nice one.

  5. Thank you Cytodex for your nice words. I like your humour too.

    “Fishermen running H.K with peasants as boss." That’s 陶傑’s concept of 小農 DNA. So true though.

  6. 影視處真是不知所謂,不知他們是假道學或是孤陋寡聞,要與世界一流都市接軌,不但沒有進一步接近,反而愈離愈遠。

  7. 先有淫審處﹐之後又黎影視處﹐正如陶傑所講﹐點樣打造香港成為一個「國際大都會」都係假﹐虛有其名﹐一D內涵都冇﹗點解管轄文化藝術果班人﹐偏偏係一D文化都冇﹑又一D藝術都唔識嘅茂利? 太丟架﹐實在太丟架﹗

    曾sir係咪應該掉幾皮嘢出黎供佢地組團去下法國呀意大利果D吸幾啖氣﹐擘大對眼睇下人地D名畫藝術品學下嘢﹐再唔係就逼佢地去讀番個Art
    History D course屎先黎搞我地D嘢啦唔該﹗

    太吊詭﹐比班友整整下﹐無啦啦搞到香港人產生咗「陽具恐懼症」同「乳頭恐懼症」﹐一見唔到D格仔遮遮下就即刻好似見鬼咁﹐喊哂口叫阿媽﹗仲要都知香港人D文化根底本來都已經弱雞架啦﹐再咁荼毒D思想 ﹐真係淨間玩下手連自己沖涼時都要may埋對眼唔敢望﹐死得﹗

  8. “may"埋對眼

    HAHAHAHA

  9. C’mon, are you sure this picture is obscene?

    These two naked/half naked bodies both look very feminine to me. Are they sisters except that the one on the left has a pair of retractable wings and the one on the right (supposedly Cupid) is shown with full-fledged wings? If they are indeed sisters, then the picture is definitely as decent as any picture depicting sisterly love!

  10. i think “不齒影視處” 應寫成 “不恥影視處”。

    路過, “不齒影視處” 是正確寫法,“不恥下問"才是以"恥"字入文。
