Christian Bale Not Worried About Censorship Over New Chinese Film
Christian Bale has revealed that he is not concerned about what Chinese censors might cut from his new film 'The Flowers of War'. Christian Bale stars in the film which depicts the Japanese army's brutal 1937 rampaging of Nanjing.
The 'Batman' star, who plays a mortician pretending to be a priest to protect young women inside a Catholic cathedral during the invasion, said to The Press Association: 'I just do what I do. What happens after I'm wrapped is always out of my hands. It doesn't matter which country that's in. ... Which scenes get chosen, which scenes get cut, that has nothing to do with me.' In the film, the dialogue is split between both English and Mandarin. Bale further suggested that he had decided to embark on the project because he loves working outside of his comfort zone: ''I have a great sense of adventure, and whatever adventure I can take out of moviemaking, I'm going to. So I hope that not just with China but with internationally that we'll start to get much more mixing of nationalities and film cultures. And I think we're going to get some really interesting results from that.'
It is reported that Bale had to use an interpreter to communicate with director Zhang and they often used hand gestures to get through scenes. 'The Flowers Of War' will be released in worldwide this month.
