The first Chinese film to use psychological issues as a theme, called "The Double Life", premiered in Guangzhou in southern China's Guangdong Province on Friday.
Director Ning Ying and co-stars Yuan Wenkang, Daniel Chan and Sister Furong attended the ceremony, Mtime.com reports.
During the premiere, a full-on naked shot of lead actor Yuan Wenkang caused a sensation. At the press conference, when Yuan was asked whether he would do more nude scenes, director Ning said she believed Yuan is a good actor who realizes the value of nudity in art.
Yuan also expressed that the film uses provocative elements such as nudity, a storyline involving an elopement and a suicide scene in order to pose before audiences in today's modern society the question of whether to choose true love over money.
He also pointed out that the film aims to bring a kind of spiritual baptism to audiences, and that nudity is justified when used in a good film.
