This controversial film is fresh off the Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. Focusing almost exclusively on a nightlong conversation between a Tianenmen park police officer and the gay man he has detained for lewd conduct, the film is structured as a mental tango, a dance of wits wherein deep inhibitions and hidden desires are methodically laid bare.
