AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARD Golden Horse Film Festival 2001
Adapted from an anonymous web novel that was popular among the Chinese gay community and shot clandestinely in Beijing, Lan Yu follows the intermittent relationship between a wealthy businessman Han Dong (Hu Jun) and a poor college student Lan Yu (Liu Ye) after a one-night stand. Entrenched in China’s political anxieties of economic reforms and civil unrest, the film is a heady blend of eroticism, passion and tragedy, and an oblique critique of the unbending social persecution against the LGBTQ+ community.
