This is an easy movie to watch and like. The story is about the modern west and the modern east. Two Chinese men - one from the traditional yet modern world of China and the other born an American but Chinese by heritage. These two men are thrown together because they share a like heritage but are vastly culturally different and they are expected to communicate on a like plain. That doesn't happen.
The American is very open about his sexuality, the Chinese one is very repressed about his true sexual desires. The setting is NYC, a big open city, with liberal neighborhoods where people can feel free to be. This is where the American lives. The other one is from a big country but is expected to fit in everywhere. These two men discover their common interest in each other but we know it will never work. The cultural divide is a major stumbling point for both.
Smartly cast, great dialog, nicely edited. Enjoy !
