This is not something to appeal to all tastes, and it is possibly the slowest-moving film I have ever seen - and yet it's still hard to follow! However I did find it quietly compelling, partly because it has some quite erotic sequences and tends towards the kinky, in line with the strangeness of the tone generally. The two men are very appealing, I think, and the Strand Releasing DVD has a cover which allows you to see this, and which piqued my curiosity. The British disc has a much less appealing cover, not because it shows three figures rather than a close-up of two, but because of the rather lurid green colour which doesn't feature in the film in any case. The American box is so much more alluring, and truer to the film. There are some very memorable images, for instance a man sitting by a pool of water in a building with a butterfly on his shoulder. Perhaps it would work better as a series of still photographs, really, as it is a bit like this anyway, but forces you to dwell at length on each shot. In relation to other contemporary Asian films with a gay aspect, I did much prefer it to Blissfully Yours, which I couldn't get on with at all, which is also very slow. This one seems far less whimsical. However it falls short of Lan Yu, I think, or The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros. To be recommended to the curious, and those who like the two men on the cover and their closeness!
