Tony Rayns writes:
The most daring and achieved of all the ‘illegal’ independent films made in China in the ‘90s... [t]he film is an intense chamber drama with large resonances: its ultimate implication is that the bond between the people and the authorities in China is essentially a sado-masochist one.

Time Out

The screening will be followed by a discussion on homosexuality and different sexualities in contemporary China and Taiwan.


East Palace West Palace1
