Storyline

Jet is the star gigolo in Hong Kong. Arrogant, sexy, everyone falls in love with him, but he falls in love with no one... until one day he meets Sam, the hunkiest policeman to ever pound a beat on Hollywood Road. From then on, Jet changes himself into somebody he is not: innocent, sweet, clean, pure. It's way of setting a trap to catch Sam. But unknowingly Jet falls into the trap himself. Things begin to get out of control when it turns out that Sam's past is part of Jet's present. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

I'm impressed !
13 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie isn't easy to understand because it's a FLASHBACK type-movie. I had to watch it three times before I understand the story completely. This movie totally impressed me. Before watching the movie, I hesitated very much to watch it. Partly because I feel disgusted by the 'gay' 'lesbian' stuff... But after I watched it, I changed my mind and my way of thinking. That movie really helped me understand gay people's life, that there can be true love between boys, that it's not easy for gay people to accept themselves as being gay, and most of all, how to face their family and parents. This movie is absolutely amazing. It's a very very sweet love story, and a very touching drama. The ending is so sad that it rip off my heart. Anyway, I NOW accept homosexual people as Humans, not more as Aliens (like I did before)...
