An official selection to the 1998 Toronto Film Festival, this art-house film from celebrated photographer Yeung Fan is a gay love story of the most emotionally involved kind. Stephen Fung is Jet, a male hustler who approaches his job with the demeanor and style of a professional. All that is thrown out the window when he falls for Sam (Daniel Wu), a seemingly straight cop with a beautiful girlfriend (Shu Qi, in a short cameo). Enchanted by Samâ€™s beauty and quiet grace, he draws closer to him. He doesnâ€™t mean to deceive Sam about his sexuality but heâ€™s powerless to walk away from him. Little does he know that Sam has secrets of his own, which involve Jetâ€™s colleague Ching (Jason Tsang) as well as a teen-idol pop star named K.S. (Terence Yin). You guessed it: theyâ€™re all gay.
Lusciously filmed, this is an interesting film that grew from an actual HK scandal about a famous photographer/playboy who was discovered to have a large cache of sexy photos - featuring young men dressed (or undressed) as policemen. That story is fictionalized as the story of Gucci (Joe Junior) who has shots of Sam and Ching in his collection.
Cast: Stephen Fung Tak-Lun, Daniel Wu, Shu Qi, Jason Tsang Chi-Yin, Terence Yin, Kenneth Tsang Kong, Jiu Ngau, Cheung Tat- Ming, Joe Junior, James Wong Jim, Michael Lam Wai-Leung, Paul Fonoroff.
