I just picked this up from Chinatown today. Well, since i came out, being an asian in a western world, i have an interest in seeing gay Asian movies and collect them as the same time. There seems to be far and few in between or perhaps movies in Australia is not as diverse as life here. The movie started very slow, and i thought in the begining the slow frame actually disinterested me somewhat, but the more i see it the more i like the movie. I guess this movie will not be everybody taste, rightly so i dont think the director has that in his vision. It is a very Asian movie, I mean that in a good way, and very symbolic. The movie feels like a beautiful poem, very poignant full of metaphors about life in general and in particularly gay. Perhaps that is why i like this movie so much because my passion is writing poetry. I love the moving sound-track, giving me inspiration to compose a poem on the spot. i guess the first quarter is kind of lost to me.It was a bit painfully slow (This movie reminded me of "kitchen" another fine Asian movie). It is only started to pick up when the main character's lives were weaved together. i do love the movie on the whole and would recommended this for the intellect.
