Banned in China -- the sexy, satirical sensation
This sexually charged political satire by one of China's most distinguished authors was instantly banned in its native China, with propaganda ministers enraged by its depiction of the People's Liberation Army during the Cultural Revolution.
Set in 1967, at the peak of the Mao cult, 'Serve the People!' tells the story of the bored young wife of a military commander who seduces a young peasant soldier. The two lovers soon discover that the sacrilegious act of breaking a statue of Mao dramatically increases their desire for each other. Their erotic game becomes a competition to see who can prove themselves the most counter-revolutionary by destroying the most sacred icons of their Great Leader -- smashing the commander's beloved Mao icons, ripping up the Little Red Book or urinating on the Great Helmsman's epigrams.
