Movie Info

Taiwanese filmmaker Yee Chih-yen follows up his debut Lonely Hearts Club with the romantic drama Lanse Da Men (Blue Gate Crossing). Best friends Meng Ke-rou (Guey Lun-mei) and Lin Yueh-chen (Liang Shu-hui) are 17-year-old high school girls. When Yueh-chen admits she likes the boy swimming champ Chang Shih-hao (Chen Bo-lin), she talks Ke-rou into talking to him for her. But Shih-hao ends up liking Ke-rou instead, and the rest of the film develops their sweet friendship and adolescent romance. The only problem is that Ke-rou thinks she might be a lesbian because she's in love with her best friend Yueh-chen.more

Blue Gate Crossing is 85 minutes of wistful gloom.

Gentle and reflective, Blue Gate Crossing ultimately doesn't make a terribly strong impact, but it does impress with its well-composed visual style and sensitive handling of bittersweet emotion.

Little more than a vignette elongated into a feature-length movie. Moody and slow moving, it depends on the truthfulness of its performances to carry it.

Opening and closing mid-reverie, the film practically evaporates before your eyes and its weightlessness is surprisingly potent.

Audience Reviews for Blue Gate Crossing

A touching movie about teenage love and innocence! Different from typical films of this type, but in a good way. Guey or Kwai Lun-Mei and Wilson Chen are both great in this film. The pacing is a teeny bit slow, but overall I still enjoyed the film.
