This is an independent gay film from Simon Chung, it tells the story of a man found swimming naked in a river by the police. He is either unable or unwilling to speak. So after some controversial `questioning', they decide to take him to the local hospital. There his nurse Jiang, takes more than a professional interest in him. So when it is decided to transfer him to a mental institution he helps him get away.

Then they come across a woman who this man actually knows and the plot starts to develop. We then have the real story of Frenchman Luc, told in flash back. This was one of those films that took a while to get going; the pacing was almost lethargic at one point. The acting is just about credible and with a cast of unknowns and a shoe string budget there were always going to be issues, and they are all too apparent at times especially with some of the sets. I was on the verge of giving up about half way through, but then things did start to happen.

The plot twists at the end are to be expected but they were not entirely foreseeable, which dragged this from being ok to nearly good. I would have given this 3.5 stars, but am rounding up to be generous. It is in Mandarin and a little English which was strange as he is supposed to be French and runs to ninety two minutes which could have been shorter, but all in all not a bad effort. This is one that trades on the plot surprises so not one to keep per se. Also there is next to no bedroom action either - so my advice would be go for a rental option as indeed did I.

As gay films go this one is not bad. It is thoughtful and sexy but not campy. More puce than pink.
