This low-budget teenage film was the only fiction feature in 2004 that did not lose money on the Taiwanese market (it has grossed twice its production cost). Produced by two young, inexperienced women in their late twenties and shot by even younger Chen Yin-Jung, this sex comedy about a young gay circle in Tapei looks quite amateurish, but its refreshing tone was up to now quite unheard of in Taiwanese cinema.

This year's sweetest gay movie from Taiwan - maybe all of Asia
Innocent boy sees then meets jaded boy. Jaded boy becomes unjaded. Familiar story but with a sweetness that can make even a tired old queen believe (again) in the power of love at first sight.
The supporting characters are truly funny and resemble many I've met in Asia. Even though the version I saw had 15 minutes of lost subtitles (?!?!?!?) the message was still clear.
I saw this at the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. There was an error in the program. This movie is from TAIWAN not Thailand. But a lot of the charm that was part of Iron Ladies (from Thailand) can be seen in this film.
Not a deep film but certainly worth a see.
