magic triangle
26 October 2002 | by (China) – See all my reviews

I like delicate European movies as this one. From the beginning, the polts caught my eyes, and the atmosphere was so calm just like I am walking in a central park alone. It is not hard for anyone to find Eric's eccentricity comes from his poor childhood which lacks of love from family members. His father died early, his elder sister left home, his mother was always in anxiety.

Eric are bisexual as I see, at least, he does not refuse homo-sex. At the end, you will find this magic triangle: Eric likes the girl and the boy, the boy likes Eric and the girl, and the girl( although she is tied of homo) likes these two men too. What will happen when three burning hearts come together? Check it out. It will refresh your mind!
