A man turning over a new leaf finds staying true to himself is no easy task in this drama from writer and director Simon Chung. Ming (Lee Chi Kin) is a young man who has accepted his homosexuality but keeps it a secret from his mother, fearing she would disapprove. One evening, Ming's mother discovers him having sex with Yan (Ben Yeung), a man he met that evening, and Ming's worst fears are confirmed -- his mother commits suicide rather than deal with the shame of a gay son. Now without a home, Ming moves in with his reckless friend Cyrus (Clifton Kwan), who urges Ming to follow him into prostitution. Turning tricks with strange men and frequent drug use takes its toll on Ming, and after collapsing after too much Viagra and Amyl Nitrate, he finds himself is a rehabilitation clinic run by a Christian organization. As Ming detoxes, he commits himself to staying clean and sober, while he also finds himself falling in love with a member of the staff, Keung (Guthrie Yip). But Keung is married and straight, sending Ming into a cycle of frustrated depression. Oi Do Chen (aka End Of Love) was an official selection at the 2009 Berlin International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
