Lost in Paradise - Homosexual Movie
This week's special offer at the GV Grand and Vivo City where the theme "Love and Pride" was aiming at Homosexuals or alike to watch their acclaimed movies in the theatre where such films seldom screened on the big screen! My friend invited me to watch such a film and actually two on a Sat and Sun and its like a movie marathon although its break up into 2 different day and sessions.
For the first movie, we watched this "Lost in Paradise" shot in Vietnam and i think its a first done by the Vietnamese. Don't worry of not able to understand Vietnamese coz it comes with big subtitles beneath and i think its a good movie where it depicts two lovers on the verge of looking for the Paradise which everyone talks to be in Saigon, hence our handsome boy went in search of such a paradise in Saigon but ended falling in love with another gay whom was also like him came to Saigon to look for the so called "Paradise" but in vain!
However, this guy's profession is a hooker or male prostitute and their love life was in a complete mess. The new boy in town was from Nhat Trang and is also a gay falls in love with this male prostitute and in the end they went on their separate ways. However, our male prostitute was such in love with the new boy and decided to look for him after earning enough money, he went on robbing his male customers and in the end, his male customers came to seek revenge, he died after some serious beatings. Our new boy in town, went back to his home town and decides to further his studies.
In this movie, it also talks about another older man but with a crazy mind. Falls in love with a female hooker, he took a duck egg and decides to hatch it himself thinking that the duck which he hatched will turn into a beautiful lady and marry him. So here goes another event where he visits the hooker and got beaten up by the pimps, in the end, the female hooker took chances and killed the pimp whom was harassing the older man and decides to turn in to the police. The older man raised up the duckling and continues visiting the hooker whom was serving her jail terms. Do you see the link between this couple and the gay couple? My friend and I was discussing this topic...
I'm happy that Singapore showcases such movies and am glad to catch some of them even though i'm down with Flu...Xoxo.
