A story about a drug abuser who happens to be gay
6 June 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a gay man who works as a prostitute, and indulges in the world of drugs. He meets another man in the drug rehabilitation camp who transforms his life.

After reading the synopsis of "End of Love", I was under the impression of it being a gay romance story. In actual fact, the story is a dark, brutal and sad tale about drug abuse. It tells how Ming and his friends cannot get out of the socially deprived positions, which marginalise them into the path they walk into. It tells how drug abusers cannot break the cycle of self destruction, causing one nadir after another.

"End of Love" is better described as a film about a drug abuser, who happens to be gay. The gay storyline is actually of a subplot, that has no direct causal relationship to what happens to Ming.
