10% courage + 20% honesty + 30% innocence + 40% beauty = 100% Bishonen. The irony is that Bishonen, which is filled with courage, honesty, innocence and beauty, is ultimately about the loss of all of these that accompanies the passing of youth. Heartbreak brings the loss of faith in love, which only leads to more heartbreaks.
Considering how this is a Hong Kong film from the late 90s, I think the makers of the film did a commendable job being one of the first to address homosexuality. While not as deep as the another gay HK film that came out around the same time (Happy Together), the character interactions are genuine and developed. The fact that the actors are handsome is certainly a bonus and the kissing/sex scenes aren't overly gratuitous.
Trademarks off any Yon Fan's movies- beautiful arts & cinematography, deep obsession off males' body & slack.
