Storyline

17-year-old Eric follows his parents to immigrate to Canada and is thus forced to confront different emotional and cultural problems. He must not only adjust to the new environment, but also come to terms with his homosexuality. Standing at the brink of adulthood, he encounters a series of potential romantic interests - his handsome cousin, a schoolmate, a middle aged lawyer and finally a kitchen helper. They represent different stages in Eric's development, from infatuation, sex, love to a sense of responsibility. Written by Anon

Realistic and raw
18 November 2006 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a gay young man from Hong Kong being tricked by his parents and moved to Canada. He is brave enough to follow his heart and act on his sexual desires, but a series of unfortunate events happen one after another.

This film stands out as being very realistic and raw. The acting, the camera and cinematography are all very every day, as if it is a home made video documenting trivial things in a family. I am particularly impressed by the portrayal between the mother and the father, and the family dynamics between the family. Most of the dialog is mildly challenging and to the point, which makes it unpretentious.

There is nothing very dramatic or graphic in the film, and yet as the trivial daily life unfolds, the film gets more interesting. It successfully captivates the viewers and makes them wanting to know more.

This film deserves a lot more attention than it currently is getting!
