Impressive and powerful
13 July 2007 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

This film is about the friendship of 4 freshmen, that dynamically changes with 2 of them falling in love with each other.

Though the film is short, it develops the characters well. The plot is told well. The initial tension between the two roommates are palpable, with one of them instantly declaring that he is not gay by bringing his girlfriend into view. As their friendship progresses, the tension changes into mutual understanding and support. Jimmy gets to know a Korean guy through his roommate's girlfriend. The girlfriend's jealousy and insecurity is very well portrayed and enacted. The ending, which consists of a sudden darkness of the screen followed by a particularly powerful and affirmative sentence, is powerful. It provokes many man's dreams of being accepted and respected by the society.

I find the film raw and real, especially during the gay bashing scene and the sugar daddy stuff. In such a short amount of time, the film deal with so many different issues. It is an impressive piece of work!
