Storyline

The film explores the feelings of both joy and pain associated with the feeling of love at first sight done through limited dialog and using acting and music to tell the story. The subtext of the film is how Asian men are often viewed within American gay culture as something less-then or inferior to other races and therefore undesirable. Discrimination within discriminated communities is just as 'bad' as anywhere else in society if not worse, something most people would not expect from those who know what it is like to be despised. This subtext of the film adds to the strong emotions of the main theme by adding the extra layer of low self esteem which in and of itself is a real problem within the gay community because of being gay. Finally, the film explores questions without answers so that the audience can think about these important concepts of love, race and culture. Written by Anonymous

Love and discrimination
5 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a solid first try for director Scott Eriksson. Although not thematically novel, the film more than makes up for it with raw emotion. There is some well-placed grainy footage which serves as a metaphor for both anguish and longing, creating a rather ethereal atmosphere. There is also a juxtaposition of certain elements that seem to be profoundly intertwined, yet the film manages to maintain an elegant simplicity. The use of dramatic irony reinforces the feeling that love can sometimes leave us in an tangled web. I highly recommend seeing this movie--it stays with you. In its own way this little film shines.
