Storyline

Jungle Fever and Yellow Fever meet in this hilarious short film. Joel and Sally seem like the perfect lusty match until Joel recognizes a peculiar pattern to what Sally wants from him. This film is sharper than it seems by commenting on the racial and sexual politics of Asian American masculinity in American popular culture. Written by Konrad Gar-Yeu Ng, HIFF 2003

Cute little romance...
11 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a clever short film about a very strange relationship. The film begins with an Asian man telling his friend he would love to date a Black woman---at which point he notices a pretty Black lady sitting next to him. He asks her out and at first, things seem great--she sees him as some sort of super-stud. However, over time, things get weirder and weirder as she wants him to dress up in the most ridiculously stereotypical Asian get-up for their love making--in one scene he's dressed like a samurai, the next like Bruce Lee, etc. After a while, he feels embarrassed and wonders if she loves him or just the fantasies.

The movie is clever, well-paced and worth a look. Because the plot involves sex, it's probably not a short for younger kids, though nothing explicit is shown. I hope to see more from the makers of this little film.
