Big disappointment!
15 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this movie is: This Summer.

This first Chinese lesbian movie had better fate than the first Chinese gay movie, East Palace, West Palace, but the quality of this film is far from East Palace, West Palace. This is a lousy attempt to follow the footstep of East Palace, West Palace in exploring homosexuality, except this time for women, but the clumsy stories of abuse and old love made this film appears to be a typical Women with Hard Time film on Life Time TV Channel with an added twist of Lesbian Love Triangle.
