Brillante Mendoza’s ‘Serbis’ Rated X by the MTRCB

The movie that brought honor to the country by making it to Cannes Film Festival last month - Serbis - received an X rating from the MTRCB. Even its poster and movie trailer were also rated-X.

This poster of Serbis showing lead actor Coco Martin standing in an empty cinema house receiving a b-job from a kneeling person was banned from public exhibition by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board or MTRCB. Director Brillante Mendoza plans to darken the “kneeling” man for the second assessment.

Even the trailer was rated-X by the MTRCB for the following grounds:

1) A love scene showing Coco Martin and Mercedes Cabral kissing.
2) A scene where Jaclyn Jose is walking in the dark
3) A scene where a man is puffing a cigarette

Serbis – Movie Trailer:

Serbis is expected to open in selected Metro Manila theaters on June 18, 2008.
