Guys, what are you doing this weekend?
zài jiā kàn piānr 《 Sèjiè 》，wèi shānjiǎn bǎn 。
I'm going to watch a movie at home. “Lust, Caution”, the uncut version.

I saw it in the movie theater. Hey, China doesn't have a movie rating system. If it did, would the version of “Lust, Caution” played in the movie theaters still need to be edited?

Yeah. Many countries like the US, UK and Japan all have excellent rating systems. Hong Kong and Taiwan also have them. It just hasn't been implemented in China's interior.
